The club will have its annual meeting prior to the social this Saturday, March 9th at 4pm in the upper lodge. Club officers will provide an update on the club’s activities this year and finances. The club is accepting nominations for candidates for the board through March 18 so that we can distribute bios and set up the election. There are 5 board seats up for election this year. Each of the 5 board seats have a term of 2 years that commences June 1, 2019. You many nominate yourself or someone else by sending an email to butternutrace@gmail.com.

The election will commence March 20th and take place electronically with an email being sent to the email that was used to register your child(ren) for the race program. Each family will receive only one vote through our electronic election platform (electionbuddy.com). The election will close on March 24th and results communicated shortly afterwards.

Finally, The Fourth Annual Bake Sale Success 

Thank you to all the bakers and the people who staffed the table this past Sunday at the bake sale. The bake sale was a huge success and we raised $1,179 for the club. A big shout out to an “anonymous” donor who handed over a considerable sum without as much as taking a single brownie. This was the highest grossing bake sale yet and as in years past, we ran out of inventory.

Interclub Race Volunteers

A few good volunteers still needed for Interclub race. Butternut cannot run this race without parents stepping up. If we do not have all of the positions filled, a last minute scramble to find people will result in a delayed start to the race and a long day for the athletes, parents and coaches. A race cannot be run without gate judges and hand timers! Please sign up and do your part. If you have a child in the Interclub Program, the expectation is that at least one parent will volunteer. No experience necessary – training will be conducted. On and off snow positions available. Sign-up here now

Reminder: We are offering $50 Butternut Bucks gift cards for gate judges and hand timers (which are all day positions). The cards will be issued the weekend after the race.
