Membership Drive Early Bird Prizes

UPDATE 22 October:  CCBC reports that we are currently tied for first with Caledonia (Prince George) in the provincial membership drive.  Tied is not good enough!   Convince your friends to join the fun by buying a membership this year.  Only 9 days until the next draw.  

The glove was dropped by Cross Country BC (CCBC).  The Club that signs the most new members by December 1 wins.  We are competing with Sovereign Lake, Kimberley, Caledonia, and Larch Hills to bring new members into the sport.  And CCBC is backing up the challenge with some impressive prizes to the winning club.   Encourage your neighbours, friends, co-workers, and family to purchase a membership this year!  Let’s win this!

To get our membership momentum going, Telemark Nordic is offering 4 early bird prize draws.  You are automatically entered for each remaining prize draw when you purchase an annual membership prior to 11:59 PM on the draw date.  Hint: buy your membership by October 8th to participate in all four draws.1
