a Message from Bob Armstrong
I wanted to share with you what we have been up to at WMSC lately. There is no doubt that the 2019/20 season will be one we all will remember as a once in a lifetime experience! That being said, we hope everyone is still remaining vigilant regarding your family’s health and wellbeing.
As we approach the middle of the summer and the weather seems to be cooperating, the club is eagerly preparing for the upcoming season. We have finalized our 2019/20-year end financials, nearing completion of the annual audit with KPMG, and presented to the Board of Directors a revised budget and operation plan for the coming season, (anticipating the various COVID-19 scenarios).
Rest assured we are in weekly contact with WB regarding their plans for the season ahead and we will pass on any new information regarding the coming season the moment we get an update. In addition, we have been actively recruiting to fill a few coach vacancies. Also, happy to report that we are pleased with the number of new families joining WMSC for the 2020/21 season!
Your Lead Coaches have executed several mini camps and Sport Saturdays, all well attended thus far. We will host more camps later in August; watch for your Lead coach updates for details.
Starting in September we will continue with the Sport Saturdays and build momentum towards the start of the race season. We anticipate the annual ski swap on Saturday, October 10th, so have a look around your home for equipment (hard and soft goods) that are no longer in use, as it will yield you a bit of cash and help other members assemble their kit for the coming season.
Our annual AGM is scheduled for Saturday, Nov 7th which is always an informative meeting and an opportunity for everyone to reconnect prior to the start of the season. We will plan to hold our annual fall social fundraiser as well on the eve of Nov 7th. In addition, the Lead coaches will be holding parent meetings sharing critical information for the program. Typically, we hold athlete fitness assessments as well during this weekend. Stay tuned for additional details. The above is of course all based on the Club being able to assemble gatherings of more than 50 people.
