On September 21 we officially had
to say good-bye to CCA Treasurer Kevin Yee. Kevin has accepted a job
that conflicts with his role here at CCA and consequently had to
resign. We plan to keep him busy as a budget consultant and plan to
get him out on skis yet! Thank you very much for your time and
effort here Kevin, you will be missed.

is back for 2005, with an amazing selection of photos
ranging from World Cup through to youth racing and
back-country skiing! The 2005 calendar will feature the same
attractive characteristics as the 2004 version:
* 14 months (November 2004 to December 2005)
* Large size (reduced a few cms in one dimension to
accommodate Canada Post mailing rates)
* $15 retail price (plus GST)
* A coaching tip for each month
* World Cup and Canadian race calendar dates incorporated
* A "Countdown to 2010" - with salient landmark days
annotated on the calendar
This means that a club can raise $1,400 by selling just 200
calendars as a fundraiser.
There is very little risk in the project as CCC undertakes
to replace any unsold 2005 calendars with 2006 calendars
when they become available. Just return the covers of unsold
calendars to us and we will credit your account for next
If you have any questions feel free to call or email Dave
Dyer or the National Office (1-877-609-3215 or [email protected]).
Let's get out there and raise some money. The "Countdown to
2010" has begun. Please encourage the members of your club
to stand up and be counted.
