With the Calgary New & Used Ski Sale rapidly approaching it is time to ensure we fill our required quota of volunteers. The Ski Sale is the Lake Louise Ski Clubs single largest fundraiser annually bringing in $40,000 for our family of Clubs. For this to continue we need to contribute 20% of the total volunteer hours required to run the sale. As of writing this we still need to fill another 40 shifts from October 18-22, 2023. If you've watched the video above from the 2022 Ski Sale, you'll understand the magnitude of the event and how important volunteers are in its success, as well as how important it is to our family of clubs.
Who can volunteer?
Any club member, friend or family member who is 16 or older can volunteer. Please make sure to select the Lake Louise Ski Clubs when signing up to ensure your time is credited to us.
Why do LLSCs members volunteer?
Firstly, to meet your families volunteer commitment for the season, in particular the financial one. You can find the policy here (https://www.lakelouiseskiclubs.ca/volunteering.html) for all the details. With our casino for the season now done, the ski sale is your easiest way to meet the finanical requirement. And yes, 100% of your volunteer points can come from financial opportunities.
Secondly, it does not matter when you sign up to volunteer, all volunteers are welcome to stop by the Thursday evening presale before the crowds have access to the merchandise!
Why do LLSCs friends and family members volunteer?
See reason #2 above! Friends and family shifts also count towards your families total volunteer points needed for the season.
What to do if your athlete is under 16 and they would like to volunteer?
New this year, ski sale volunteers must be 16 or older, however, the LLSCs is running a raffle Friday, Saturday and Sunday along with a booth during open hours of the sale to promote a number of club initiatives. This booth will be run primarily by LLSCs staff, and we inviting younger athletes to help with this endeavour. Athletes will be asked to help with a 2 hour shifts (with a LLSCs staff present at all times), and 2 volunteer points/hour they help at our table with points counting towards your financial credits. Athletes are more than welcome to sign up for multiple shifts.
We hope that many of you can join us this year and we will continue to update the club on volunteer positions needed until we have met our required commitment.
