is back for 2005, with an amazing selection of photos
ranging from World Cup through to youth racing and

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

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.
