AGM ANNOUNCEMENT - STUDENT REGISTRATION REMINDERS - SILENT AUCTION HELPERS - TOWN HALLS ANNOUNCEMENTS
AGM 2020 NOVEMBER 4, 2020 @ 7pm
We are holding our first ZOOM Annual General Meeting. Please signup if you would like to attend and we will send you all of the details as they become available. There will be reports from the President, the ED, and the Treasurer discussing this year's budget as well as an opportunity to vote on vacant board of director roles. If anyone is interested in learning about how to seek a nomination for a role on the board, please contact James Peters for more info. The meeting should be about an hour in length. Thank you for your support in advance.
STUDENT AND BUBBLE PEOPLE REGISTRATION VIDEOS
NOV 1st, 2020 @ 7:00am - Student registration opens

As I am sure you are all aware, this year every student, unless already directed by me, will need to bring a support person to their lessons. This person needs to be able to ski or board at a similar, or greater, level than the student.  We affectionately call these people the BUBBLE PEOPLE.  

Both STUDENTS and BUBBLE PEOPLE can get their profiles completed NOW at www.vass.skiportal.org and then on Nov 1, 2020, at 7am when the registration for students opens, you can jump into the student profile and sign up for the program you want.  Due to limited numbers this year, we are asking that each student only apply for 1 Program. These programs are going to fill up very quickly as we only have half the capacity of last year. Then, as quickly as possible (likely within a couple of days), we will accept students into to each program. Then, you will be sent a link to make the payment for the program. Please click here to see a short video with everything you need know about signing up a STUENT and click here to learn about signing up as a BUBBLE PERSON. If you have any questions, please call James to get answers quickly at 604-646-8277
 
SILENT AUCTION DONATIONS and Finders of DONATIONS...



I am on the hunt for a small group of people with some extra time on their hands over the next few weeks. We are on a mission to collect over $15000 worth of donations in the next 2 weeks. We are charging ahead with our WINTER SILENT AUCTION event to be held in the last week of November. Please call James if you can help out. 604 646 8277

Thank you to all of you who have already made donations to the silent auction. If anyone has anything to donate, or you work with a company that may be willing to donate, we would love to hear from you.  Awesome items might be: Gift Certificate for services or products, vouchers for a unique experience or lessons, gift baskets, wine and other spirits, and anything else you can dream up…. And things that are lighter and can be mailed, are always easy for everyone. Be creative, as every little bit counts. Here is a link with a tonne of ideas.... click here.

For more info or to chat about your donation, please email info@vass.ca
TOWN HALL - Get all of your questions answered about anything for this upcoming season
Town Halls have been popular lately on the political front in North America, I figure we should hold our very own TOWN HALL and answer any questions people have about the up coming season. All of the ZOOM details are below. I will take questions about Students and Bubble People from 6-7pm followed by questions for Instructors and Program Coordinators from 7-8pm. I look forward to answering all of your questions.

James Peters is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

COMOR SPORTS SPECIAL SHOUTOUT
Comor Sports recently made a donation of more than $5000 of used ski and snowboard gear to VASS. It is great to see local business supporting such an amazing cause like VASS. A GIANT THANK YOU to the team at the Burrard store.

For all of your new, high end sports goods, check them out. Check here for the website.
Do you know North Shore Sport Swap? They are a new and used sporting goods store in North Vancouver. Owners, Chris and Cindy are massive supporters of VASS! Through October to April, if you bring in your lightly used sporting goods you can designate the goods for VASS. When the goods are sold, North Shore Sport Swap will split the profits with VASS. This is an awesome program, and I would urge you to help out if you can. Also, for the budget conscious, there is no better place to get fully geared up for the ski season! There is also a full tech team there to tune your skis in the winter and your bicycles in the summer. Head down and check them out.
