2016-2017 Season

Welcome MHRC Members and Racers

The summer has fast come to an end and the ski season is rapidly getting closer. The MHRC Board has been hard at work this summer preparing for the up in coming season. I would like to share with you a few notices and events as we head into pre-season activities.

Volunteers

As a Volunteer based club we all need to give our time to move the club forward and make it the best experience possible for our children. These efforts help to reduce costs that the club may have to incur without a solid base of volunteers.  The board itself is made up of volunteers that put in countless hours, even during the off season.

With that said l would like to introduce our new board members for the 2016-2017 season, they are Julie Robinson and Dave Balne. We are also looking for one more board member who would be interested in taking over the IT/Website area. This position would also cover your volunteer hours for the year. Any interested members please feel free to email  president@miltonheights.com.

An exciting change for volunteering sign-up: Sign up for all volunteer opportunities can now be done on line! This is a great benefit to those parents that can’t always make it to the club to sign themselves up for future week volunteering needs.

Survey

At the end of 2015-16 season the club sent out a small survey to ALL Members, in the hopes of getting feedback to better the club and our programs for the coming years.  Thank you to all who participated, we have read all the responses and continue to work hard to make improvements.

The Clubs communication was a highlighted concern that came from the survey, internal and external communication needs to continue to improve.  I’m pleased to announce we have a new MHRC Website, which will provide one location for MHRC information.

New Web Site – Get The Latest News!

Please be sure to check our new website and double check that you are registered for the communications –by adding yourself to the “Get The Latest News” at the bottom of website pages for quick sign-up.

We will do our best to keep all communications available and up-to-date on the website including our Calendar of Events but “Getting The Latest News” is a quick and easy way to ensure you know what is going on!

Open House – Oct 1st

MHRC will be hosting an Open House and BBQ on Oct 1st from 10 am-2 pm at the MHRC clubhouse. This will be an excellent opportunity to stop in, register the family for the season, ask questions and meet some new faces as the season gets under way. It is also an opportunity to sign up for volunteer jobs!

This year dryland training will consist of 4 weekend sessions, with the first session starting on Oct 15.  The next 3 sessions will be held on Oct 23, Oct 30 and Nov 13 from 10am -11:30am.
