Groom the Snow – Equipment Fundraiser

Wow, you’ve already helped us raise $2600.00! If you haven’t already, check out our fundraiser, here.
The Yellowknife Ski Club, together with Nordiq Canada has launched a tax deduction eligible campaign to raise $5000 for the purpose of investing in upkeep of the Club’s trail grooming capacity!
The Yellowknife Ski Club relies on snowmobiles and snow grooming implements to build, maintain, and groom our ski trails. The equipment is integral to the operation of our club, and some of our most important assets. Much of our equipment has been in operation for 30+ years and has been maintained by a handful of volunteers who know how to repair and maintain it. A lot of our equipment is old, and the parts needed to keep it in operation are becoming increasingly hard to come by, or are too worn to repair. Money raised with this joint initiative will support the production of safe, quality ski trails for everyone to enjoy. If you would like to donate, click here!

Looking for French coaches!

Bonjour mes chers coachs bilingues, (English follows)

L’AFCY et le Réseau TNO Santé souhaitent organiser un après-midi initiation au ski de fond au ski club. De fait, on cherche une personne francophone pour animer l’activité. La prestation sera rémunérée.

L’activité pourrait durer environ 2 h – 3 h, avec une partie apprentissage des bases et une autre balade à ski par exemple, mais ils sont ouverts aux suggestions quant au déroulement de la session. Ils proposeront ensuite des collations et boissons chaudes aux participants.

Après discussion avec le ski club, il y aurait une disponibilité pour l’organiser le dimanche 5 février prochain. Seriez-vous intéressés pour animer cette activité? N’hésite pas à revenir vers Lisa (en copie) pour tout renseignement complémentaire.

Hello bilingual coaches, 
The French Association of Yellowknife and the Réseau TNO Santé would like to organize an afternoon of cross-country skiing at the ski club. In fact, they are looking for a French-speaking person to lead the activity. If you choose to help them out, you will be paid for your time and effort. 

The activity could last about 2 – 3 hours. During the first half, the participants will learn the basics and during the other half, they can go for a ski on the trails, for example, but the organizers are open to suggestions as to how the session should be run. They will then offer snacks and hot drinks to the participants.

After discussion with the ski club, this activity could possibly be run on Sunday, February 5th. Would you be interested in leading this activity? Don’t hesitate to communicate with Lisa (cc’d) for any further information.
