Change of Plan — Raffle Event Moved

Learning from our experience on Sunday, we are moving this weekend’s raffle ticket selling event to the Fresh Air Experience store on Harvey across from Orchard Park.  Fresh Air Experience has graciously agreed to allow the Telemark racing and biathlon teams to sell raffle tickets in front of their store on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  This is a fabulous way to help support our teams at Telemark!

Why you should care:

We expect all our biathlon families to sell at least one booklet of tickets before the raffle date in January.  We use these funds to help keep our program costs down, to buy more rifles and ammunition, to keep our facility in good shape and so on.

What you need to do:

Just show up!  Bring your tickets.  If you have not yet received your tickets, you will be able to pick them up when you arrive.  Athletes need to be in team colours.  Bring a chair if you want to sit.  Stay as long as you are able.  Note that this is “come and go” so you will not be held to a schedule, but please drop a quick note to Barryto indicate your intentions as he has been organizing this event.

Background:

Fresh Air Experience stepped up in September and offered to support our teams by donating an exceptional Nordic prize package for a raffle.   The raffle is a great way to help raise significant funds for our teams and this event will be an easy way for you to sell a bunch of tickets!  Click here for the flyer with details of the prizes.
