An enormous thank you to all of you who attended and supported the event on Saturday night at Buffalo Bill’s. It was great to see everyone after a long summer and feel the excitement centered around the start of the new season.
Thanks to Gibbons for the venue, drinks and of course to their staff for making the evening a wonderful success and to Rob Boyd for the welcome drink.

To Amanda, Melissa, Rip and your team, congratulations on producing a tremendous, fun-filled evening that resulted in a significant contribution towards our WMSC programs.

There are so many others to thank who secured donations for the auction, sold tickets and the many individuals and businesses from the Whistler community who donated to our cause. Many many thanks to you all!!

We are incredibly lucky to have such a strong sense of community both within the club and in the valley. I am hoping that we, as WMSC, can continue to support our local merchants and other partners that support the club. Most of the merchants in town provide local discounts and Whistler Village Sports and Can Ski Performance provide ongoing special offers for members (ask at the check out for details).

See you soon on the hill or at the socials!!

Best regards,
