Pizza and prizes…

Just a reminder that Monday night is our club members social and meeting at Houston Pizza in Moose Jaw @ 6:30 pm. Come out and enjoy pizza on the club as we discuss this past year and make plans for next year. If you are interested in volunteering to be part of the trail crew or assist with an event you will have a chance to get involved.

Monday night we will be drawing for prizes. Each year the Pavers and Western Cycle contribute towards a $1000 Western Cycle gift card (Thanks Dane!!) to be randomly awarded to club member who volunteer with the trail maintenance and organizing our races. We realize that our volunteers are busy people and may not be able to attend. So if you volunteered you will be entered in the draw for the prizes. There will be some additional prizes (gift cards and merchandise from Dutch Cycle and Western Cycle (Thanks Freddy and Dane!) for members (present and absent) that will be randomly drawn. There is also a limited number of the AWESOME silicon pint glasses for those in attendance!

See you at Houston Pizza!
