Nordic Racers Year End Dinner - May 3rd 2014
 
Think you know everything about Curling? Think you don't know anything about Curling? You can't think because your job doesn't allow you to?

 

Put all that thinking aside and come join your fellow Nordic Racers for some laughs and a good time.

 

This year, the Nordic Racers Year End Dinner will be held at the North Shore Winter Club.

 

For the early bird price of $30 (register by April 27) you will get the opportunity to go Curling and have a full course dinner, OR for the same price you can come and just join us for dinner.  In other words, the Curling is free, but space is limited so sign up to ensure a spot.  The price goes up $10 after April 27 and all registration closes April 29.  There will be great draw prizes and there are reports of some Gangnam dancing after dinner.   

 

Dinner will be a 3 course buffet with the mains being Prime Rib and Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni.

 

There will be a cash bar and bring your dancing shoes! 

 

Sign up here before April 29.

 

Venue : North Shore Winter Club, 1325 E. Keith Road, North Vancouver.

Time : May 3rd, 5pm for Curling, 6:30pm for dinner

Cost : $30 Early bird registration before April 27

          $40 register after April 27.

          Registration closes April 29.

Last chance to fly your NR colours!

Last year the NR brought in some great lightweight jackets, racing tops and tights.  They were at the NR wine and cheese for those who wanted to see the design or check sizing.  Hint - this is unisex sizing - women go down a notch from your usual order, men are about the same or a size larger.  The prices include taxes and shipping and are below cost to club members.  Selection is limited, please click here to purchase. 
 


CCC has a Volunteer Wall of Fame and 3 Nordic Racers members are on it.

New fees, new faces...

Welcome to another great year of snow, racing, skiing and fun with the Nordic Racers.  Registration for the 2013/14 season is now open, and there are a few changes, so keep reading to be fully informed!

The annual membership fee is increasing to $35 for adult returning members, and to $60 for families.  New members, youth, paranordic members will stay at the same prices as the last several years.  The club has not raised its rates for many years.  We are raising them this year in an effort to bring more of you out to our year end wrap up dinner/event.  The club will be subsidizing some fabulous outing/activity - we haven't decided what yet, with the increase in fee revenues.  If you have ideas or suggestions - curling?  kareoke night?  please let Michael Lim know.

We have new blood on the executive - Michael Lim is the social co-ordinator and Michael Parker-Sutton is taking over as membership co-ordinator.  We thank Joanne Turnbull and Andrea Bundon for all their efforts in those roles, they are moving on to new adventures!  Returning exec members Sherryl Yeager (president) Jamie Stirling (vice president), Teri Martin (treasurer) and Terry Meyer, (secretary) in addition to Laurence Vellard (newsletter and webmaster) are the people to talk to if you have questions about any of those areas or club activities. 

We also say goodbye to Tony Chin, who resigned from the executive last year after a long term of service, and stepped away from the paranordic subcommittee this season.  Tony has been coaching and volunteer extraordinaire for a long time, and has earned a break!  Please thank him for all his work if you see him on the trails!
