Cookie Cup - GKHAT Race - Rescheduled
 
The forecast is looking pretty "sweet" for our re-scheduled Cookie Cup this coming weekend, Sunday January 26. Please don't forget to visit the sign up to edit your athlete's participation and your volunteer sign ups if there are any changes since the re-schedule.

There are still some important volunteer positions that need to be filled before we can run the days events (the Ski Cross event is an athlete favorite, but we currently do not have enough volunteers to run it safely). If you haven't yet signed up for a volunteer position, please do so ASAP. Thank you for helping us to make Sunday a fabulous event for ALL of our athletes.
 

Short notice: U12/U14 Speed Camp - Register ASAP!
 
On the weekend of Friday Jan 31 our U12 and U14 team have a chance to attend a Speed Training camp at Silver Star (Vernon BC) where the focus of the weekend will be to introduce and develop Super-G / Downhill skiing skills in an environment designed for the U12/ U14 context. Athletes will learn the skills necessary to ski safely at speed, and work progressively towards a series of timed runs on Silver Stars excellent mellow speed venue called "Over the Hill".

Athletes will require GS skis (all skis will be assessed prior to event), hard ear race helmet, and a back protector, downhill suits are nice to have as well.

If you would like more info/ are interested in potentially attending this event let Ryan know by email back to headcoach@gkhat.ca or just register here. The event notice can be found here on the BC Alpine Calendar.
Is Your Spouse/Partner Not Getting Communications?
 
A number of members have asked to how to get their spouse/partner to receive communications. To fix this, be sure that the member that originally created the account is available to log in and fix this. There are typically two issues here. One is, the spouse/partner was not added as part of the family when originally registering. The second is that an email was not provided.
For details on how to correct these issues, check out the FAQ area. Look under "New Website & Registration" and then read the article "How do I manage my spouse/children accounts?"
IMPORTANT: Mini GKHAT Tail-gunning
 
If you have a skier in our U8 or Mini GKHAT program, please visit the Tailgunning Volunteer Sign Up. In an effort to maximize safety and efficiency of training days, we are asking the parents of our minis and first year U8's to do some volunteer tail gunning with their child's group. Thank you in advance for helping us make the most of your child's training day!
 
Sign up here.

Our mini skiers are also participating in our upcoming Cookie Cup on Sunday January 12. If your athlete skis in the Saturday or Sunday morning session, please arrive ready to ski for 9 am. If your mini skis in the Saturday or Sunday afternoon session, please arrive ready to ski for 12 noon.
IMPORTANT: Training Equipment Drop Volunteering

We could REALLY use your help here! Our coaches need a little help moving equipment on Fri/Sat/Sun training days. We are looking for an extra set of hands to assist Bill in the set-up/tear down of our training courses on regular training days. Please visit the sign up to help deliver equipment/gates to our training environments at the start of the day and back to the yurt at the end of the day. (One run to start the day and one run to end the GKHAT day). If everyone can help for ONE training day this season it would be a great help to our coaches.
 
Sign up here. If you have questions, please email Ryan at headcoach@gkhat.ca.
