Midsummer News Blast

Our Nordic Skiing season was long and beautiful. Now it is time to look at next year!

Volunteers Are Everything!

First and foremost, thanks for supporting Golden Nordic! Our club exists to run a world class operation as efficiently as possible. This cannot happen without tremendous volunteer support.

Join the Leaders!

Now we are asking your help to source new leaders for the club. We have both our president and treasurer stepping down this fall at our AGM and both positions are important to fill with keen and capable folks.

Our treasurer, Joanne has been extremely helpful in putting together the system we have for our staffing and everything from point of sale, to tracking staff payrolls. We work with a certified accountant for bookkeeping.

Our New Strategic Plan

Your leadership worked past the ski season to get ahead of the curve and set up our plans for the next few years.

As you all know, we started a 5 year strategic plan for the club in May and finished it by the end of June and have adopted it. The May club survey was an important part of the project.

This is a working plan to give direction but it can be changed as necessary depending on club priorities and how we see them changing.

If you have an interest in board or executive positions, please contact our president to find out what it is all about.

We have a good time with fellowship among our leaders and it is very satisfying to see our efforts to improve the club and its facilities come to fruition.

Please text or email president Dan if you have input or would like to join and need info: president@goldennordicclub.ca phone/text 250-344-1435.

Program Coordination

We are looking for paid Coordinators for each of the 3 aspects of the GNSC programs 1. ski school 2. Youth program and 3. School programs. Email secretary@goldennordicclub.ca for Job descriptions and more info.

Enjoy your summer everyone!

Monday May 6 Nordic Volunteers Appreciation and Member Feedback Night.

Monday, May 6 Nordic Volunteers appreciation and Member feedback night.

Please plan to attend and enjoy the company of your fellow members on Monday, May 6 at the Island Restaurant.

Starting at 6 PM, we will have snacks and mingle followed by recognition of our volunteer leaders. The evening will continue with a chance for all present to contribute to our strategic plan for the next five years. While our club is very strong and successful, keeping in touch with members through discussions of our future is important.

Our strategic planning process begins with a club survey that you can fill out online. You should have got that in your inbox last week: have a look...but if not you can find it on our website or directly HERE

We are looking for new leaders to help direct our clubs future. We hope to see you next Monday, May 6 at the Island!

It is a wrap folks, it has been a great season and we couldn’t do it without you!

It is a wrap folks, it has been a great season and we couldn’t do it without you! A big shout out to our 641 members who supported the club this year and those who volunteered many, many hours throughout the year preparing the trails, applying for grants, supporting events/ programs and upkeep of the chalet. Your work does not go unnoticed! We would love to show you our appreciation at a party to be held on May 6 – watch for details coming soon.

Cat grooming has been completed for the season; the chalet will be locked starting April 14th; you are still welcome to ski as long as there is snow but at your own risk of course.  

Everyone is invited to join the Board of Directors at the upcoming Strategic Planning meetings to be held on May 6 and May 13th – 6:30 to 8:30, location to be announced.

The club will be looking into the future to set priorities/goals, strengthen the operations and develop a coordinated systematic course of direction for the club. Your insight is important!
