Hello Sport Enthusiast,
Are you poised and ready for February 12, 2009, the Opening Ceremonies to the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games?  Have you studied up on our Canadian athletes and are ready to cheer on your favorites?  Are you wondering how you can get involved with the sports that you have come to love?  Well...the road to 2010 passes through Calgary.  This season Calgary will host two international events (along with numerous provincial and national competitions) in the sports of bobsleigh and skeleton and we are looking for your help!

Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton in association with Alberta’s Provincial Associations is hosting a Level One Officials Course on Saturday, October 3, 2009 to introduce you to our sports and help get you involved.  Whether you are a sliding enthusiast or someone looking for volunteer opportunities, we want you to attend!

Location:  Canada Olympic Park – Hall of Fame (located in Daylodge)

Upon completion, you will have a better understanding of the rules of bobsleigh and skeleton, the equipment involved and the nature of our community.  You will be a certified Level One (Provincial) Official and registered member of the Alberta Bobsleigh Association, the Alberta Skeleton Association and the Canadian Association of Skeleton Officials.

To register, please contact Shaulyn King, Event Manager at 403.247.5964 or shaulyn.king@bobsleigh.ca.  The deadline to register is Friday, September 25th.  

Note to all current officials: You are invited to attend to familiarize yourself with the new rules & regulations at a cost of $15.00.  This section will take approximately 1 hour, commencing at approximately 11:30AM (to be confirmed).  Please note your Provincial membership fees are not included in this cost.  If you are interested in attending, please confirm by September 25, 2009.

I look forward to seeing you there,
