RE: First Official Work Bee set for Saturday, September 23rd, 2017 at 10:00am
Just letting you know that we have been very fortunate with many people coming forward to help us at the hill in one way or another. Not sure if any of you noticed, but last Friday we had Curt Steeves, one of our members, close up his Acklands-Grainger’s office so that himself and his workers came to our hill to do a massive workbee. WOW that was super and a big Thank You to Curt and his crew. What this means is there isn’t too much left to do but . . . . .
This Saturday I do need your help. If you own a weed whacker, please bring it. Please also bring work gloves as we are going need help in the following areas:
If we have a good turnout I don’t anticipate that we will be long at the workbee.
Sure would be nice to see our members show as this is the time we need you.

Your Community ski hill run by volunteers
Hello members. It’s been awhile since I last sent out an e-mail. I thought it was time that I provided an update as to what has been happening at the Hart Ski Hill. Nothing that you can actually see . . . . yet, but there have been lots and lots of meetings and tons of e-mails. You may or may not have heard the rumours about the Hart bringing in Snowmaking. Well that is true and our plan. We are close but still have lots to do and this is where I need some help. First though, let me tell you what has been going on behind the scene.
We have many things on the go.
I want to acknowledge and name some of the people that have come forward with ideas and to make this happen.
We are looking for the following:
It’s also that time of the year for our annual work bees and we are looking for a:
Fall maintenance coordinator:
Then we are hoping to find the following:
If you are able to find time to help us in any one of these positions, please contact myself at 250-617-3452 or firstname.lastname@example.org. These are very important jobs and we need help. Please come forward. Thank you in advance.
I also want to ask that you share this information. Spread the word, let them know that donations are welcome. Snowmaking alone is roughly a $200,000.00 venture. But we truly believe, after the few rough years that we have had, with very few days open in the past two years, that we all want a great year. The basis of snowmaking is to make a firm, hard base, so that when the actual snow comes we are ready for tons of kids to ski or board and they won’t ski off all the snow and go down to dirt. I also want to advise any of our members/neighbours that back on to the hill that we apologize in advance for the sewing machine sound (as that is what we were told a silent pole cat sound is) for that potential two week period that we are making snow 24/7. Please be patient, please understand why we are doing this, and why it’s happening. It will be well worth it in the end. Our kids will be having so much fun, that all this time, effort, and money will have been put to great use.
Thanks for your time and again, please, please members come forward and help the rest of us out. We need you.
Thank you very much.
President of HHWC
