Fundraising + Sponsors

Fundraising

Our club tries very hard to keep the club fees at a reasonable level.  Our major expenses each year are ice rental, coaching and equipment repair and replacement.  To offset some of these costs we encourage each family to participate in various fundraising activities.
 

Bingo Fundraising

The outdoor Susan Auch oval is maintained by the City of Winnipeg.  The Manitoba Speed Skating Association (MSSA) ‘rents’ the oval and the cost is shared by the 6 speed skating clubs in the province.  The Bingos raise the money to pay for the oval. 

We are required to provide 5 volunteers for up to 4 bingos each calendar year (one bingo per quarter).  Participation in the bingos is required to divide the obligation equally among all families. Bingo volunteers must be 18 years old, but they do not have to be a member of the club.  So if you have a friend or family member willing to help out they can volunteer on your behalf.  If that is the case, make sure that our bingo co-ordinator knows which family should be ‘credited’. 

When we fail to provide the required volunteers MSSA may lose the opportunity to staff bingos and the clubs, including ours, would need to do more fundraising or increase membership fees to raise the money required to pay for the oval.

intact Insurance

We are here to insure and protect the things you care about: your car, your home, your business. But truth be told, we’re here to focus on you. We understand that insurance isn’t just about things, it’s about people. It’s about you – and how you want to feel after an accident or unexpected event has occurred in your life. You want to be restored; you want to get back to normal …you want to get back on track.
