New: Online Registration and Early Bird Prizes!

We are excited to be offering Online Registration for membership and programs this season.  Registration is now as easy as a few clicks from the comfort of your home, and there is no excuse to miss out on Early Bird prices!  

Our regular registration events will still be taking place at Chakho-Mika Mall and the Ski Swap, if you prefer to come say hello in person!

As an added bonus, we will be holding two Early Bird prize draws to reward those loyal members who choose to commit to the Club by November 6th.  We have some fantastic prizes from local businesses, and the grand prize is a full refund on your individual membership!  
See our website for more prizes and details.

*Please note, if you have earned a volunteer discount, or you are a lifetime member, you will soon be receiving a discount code to use online.  Anyone still hoping to earn volunteer hours before November 6th should not register yet, as refunds will not be provided.

Summer Infrastructure Project Completed
With the help of a significant grant from CBT's Recreation Infrastructure program, some much-needed work was completed this summer to upgrade our bridges and streamside trails.

Bridge structures were upgraded, and foundation blocks were installed to ensure long term safety.  The Salmo River streambank was also stabilized with culvert and riprap to prevent further erosion and allow us to keep our idyllic steam-side trail open.  

Project manager Darcy Fear and his crew provided expert skills and efficient work, and many generous donations from local agencies, companies, and individuals enabled us to complete even more work than expected.  Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to get this project finished!

Survey Reminder!  

If you haven't completed our membership survey yet, please take a moment before September 30th to give us your input to help with developing a new strategic plan for the club.
