Kelowna Toyota Patches

I have patches for anyone with the older clothing.  Please sew, or have someone put them on your warm ups as the picture illustrates, this way they will match the new clothing.  Lycra race clothing cannot have the patches sewn on, and an iron on patch was not an option as the fabric does not like high heat.  We may also have enough to add patches to older Team toques and headbands later.  Please do your best to get them on as we want to give Kelowna Toyota exposure and hopefully keep them as a sponsor in years to come.



Ski Swap Volunteer Sign-up

Hello Ski Fans,

This Sunday, directly after the club AGM, is the annual ski swap.  15% of all sales go to Team Telemark. We are looking for volunteers to help setup, give good gear advice, take money, tag items, door security and tear down.

Please see the volunteer signup to grab a great job and thanks.

Party – Save the Date


As May is shaping up to be a busy month it was decided to tag the wind up party with the tree planting weekend.

The  season wind up party will happen directly after tree planing on Saturday, May 28th (~ 5PM).  As we are going to be tree planting on the West Side it seemed logical to have the party at the Telemark chalet.

This is a potluck event.  Sign up sheet to be sent out closer to the day.
