The Ski Swap is coming Nov 7th. This is our major fundraiser of the year. The work that we do here pays for our wax and wax equipment. Biathlon and X-C wax usually cost $7-8000 each year. So you need to be ready everyone parents and athletes will need to make sure that they are present during the swap. Every athlete need a quality silent auctions item, this is where we make most of our money. We will also be doing a raffle and a concession. Everyone will be required to sell tickets for the raffle and bring baked goods for the concession.

Hello from your Silent Auction Team, Cynthia Westaway and Mona Marshy
It is already time for all to assist in the Silent Auction effort by
finding some excellent Silent Auctions items from our community and 
from your contacts. Remember, the money we make goes towards the race waxes,
which help make us so fast!
We have a new simple system to electronically sign up your items.   All
you need to do is quickly check our list of donations to date to avoid
duplication, ask for donations and then get your contributions added to
our list!  (Note that we will leave Pierre Gravel Chief of Vendors to
approach all the local ski shops and bigger Sponsors for Silent Auction
items ie Greg Christie, Fresh Air, Peccos and the Cyclery.)
Step One:  Go to this link and check to see what is already on the


 (this is very important  to ensure that we do not keep asking the same
merchants multiple times)
Step Two: Once you have your auction item promised or in hand, go to

this same link

 Enter your email address, first and last name, item description
(short), donor name and estimated value (if known; ie. this is 
optional,the rest are required fields).
Step Three: Drop off your items by arrangement with Mona or Cynthia before November 6.(this is important so that bid sheets can be prepared ahead of time)
Contact Cynthia or Mona at if you have any questions or run into any challenges. Thanks for all your help and
let’s get started early so we have some great items for our Auction!

You need to purchase your CCC race license follow this link to purchase it online. Get this done early each year there are athletes that get caught at the first races without their license and have to scramble to get their licenses at the last minute. Those racing in the US this year and want to score points from these races will need to purchase their FIS License as well. 

You will need this information to get your CCC license
