Another Successful Ski Swap

Posted by Chris Leighton on Oct 15 2018 at 04:14PM PDT

I would like to thank all of you for your incredible efforts to bring together the 2018 Whistler Swap. The Swap has been the largest fund raiser for the ski club for the past decade and it is not possible without the dedication and support of our amazing ski club. I do not wish to miss out on anyone, but would like to extend a special thanks to Abbie for the efforts to recruit and organize the over 100 volunteers, Michelle who has taken the lead role on check in and check out of the equipment, Ian our magical IT specialist, Maria for making sure our “care packages” were ready on site and finally the parents, children and ski coaches that made the effort to help out. Steve Fleckenstein has organized to coordinate the left over and abandoned skis to be donated to the Alberta Handicap Ski Association, this is a god send as we do not have a home for these skis at the end of the sale. Thank-you Steve for undertaking this important role. I’d also like to thank Whistler Blackcomb and their team of staff that made our jobs so much easier.

The Club can take great pride in knowing it was the vision of the WMSC to create the first swap at the Myrtle Philip School over 30 years ago, we then moved to the Convention Center for years and moved at the invitation of Whistler Blackcomb to the Tents over a decade ago. A proud history that spans over 30 years.

I would like to Thank everyone again, it has been a pleasure to be part of the Swap Team for the past 10 years and an honor to be the Swap Manager for the past 7 years.

All the best,

Dan Jepsen
