with<br />

approximately<br />

200 members<br />

enjoying great<br />

food and a<br />

Thank you to<br />

our wonderful<br />

The Skating Section put on a one day Theatre on Ice<br />

Seminar - 40 kids, 5 coaches, and 8 hours to put on a<br />

show. It was great fun and a great show. The theme<br />

was “Celebration.” Over 100 people came out to watch!


President’s Message<br />

Once again there are many things to update you on. First, the<br />

Finance Committee continues to work on next year’s<br />

financial plans. The capital plan has been worked to a number<br />

of $557,000, a fairly typical year. The largest component of this<br />

plan is the construction of new parking at the west end of the<br />

parking lot, where you would currently walk onto Nose Hill<br />

Park. This land is presently owned by the City of <strong>Calgary</strong>,<br />

however, the <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> has entered into an<br />

agreement with the City where we swap our land, the hill<br />

behind the <strong>Club</strong> which is difficult to develop, for the flat land<br />

west of our parking lot owned by the City. We anticipate this<br />

agreement being finalized in June and the construction of 49<br />

new parking stalls following in July.<br />

Work continues on the development permit application for the<br />

<strong>Club</strong>’s expansion plans. The Board is seeking a development<br />

permit on the expansion plan prior to bringing it to members.<br />

This step will ensure that any potential changes required by the<br />

City will be made prior to members voting on the plan. The<br />

necessary professionals required to finalize the development<br />

permit submission have been hired. The finishing touches to<br />

the plan include storm water management drawings, landscape<br />

architectural drawings, along with both a traffic and parking<br />

study. We anticipate submitting these drawings to the City in<br />

April.<br />

Next to update you on the membership satisfaction survey. We<br />

have contracted the research firm eNRG Research Group to<br />

conduct the survey. This survey process will be completed every<br />

three years in order to ensure we are meeting member<br />

expectations in all areas of the <strong>Club</strong>. The first survey will be<br />

available on line for members in early spring. We will be<br />

providing everyone with a PIN and the web address for the<br />

survey in the coming month. I encourage everyone to participate<br />

in this process; it’s your chance to register your opinion.<br />

In the fall, new youth focused programs were launched. This<br />

area, in a short period of time, has received great response from<br />

members. The programs offered included things such as dodge<br />

ball tournaments, 90 of our kids showed up for the first<br />

tournament! Other programs include 3 on 3 hockey, pumpkin<br />

Angela Boehm | calgarywinterclub.com<br />

carving for Halloween, video games night and card making.<br />

Each of these programs, some without any prior<br />

advertising, had close to 40 children attending. What this<br />

highlights is the need for facilities and programs for our<br />

youth group. Unfortunately, the physical space in our<br />

<strong>Club</strong> to offer these types of programs is quite limited. We<br />

currently have 1,739 members between the ages of 6 and<br />

17 that have very limited unsupervised use of the <strong>Club</strong>.<br />

This is something that the expansion plan addresses with<br />

a supervised youth room as well as a teen room. It also<br />

includes a multi purpose facility to accommodate more<br />

programs when larger numbers of younger members are<br />

expected. Unlike the youth and teen rooms, the multi<br />

purpose facility would be programmed to include activities<br />

for members of all ages.<br />

On behalf of the Board and Management, I would like to<br />

extend a welcome to our newest active members. Seventy<br />

five new families joined our <strong>Club</strong> as active members in<br />

March. Every spring we move members off the wait list<br />

to replace those members we lost in the previous year. It is<br />

done on March 1 st to allow registration for spring programs<br />

that typically have more room for participants.<br />

In Badminton, the Korean/Canadian exhibition was<br />

extremely well received. Over 200 members and guests<br />

enjoyed international caliber exhibition matches between<br />

the Korean National Team and the Canadian National<br />

Team. Next up, the badminton section will host the<br />

Alberta Junior Championships April 17 th through 19 th .<br />

It’s also a busy time of year for other areas of the <strong>Club</strong>. In<br />

April, <strong>Club</strong> championships will be held in both Skating<br />

and Tennis along with section windups for Badminton,<br />

Curling, Skating and Squash.<br />

Members are reminded that all guests must be registered on a guest pass and<br />

accompanied by the member registering them prior to guests gaining access to the<br />

<strong>Club</strong>. Members must sign in all guests at the front desk and guests may be asked<br />

to show picture ID when being registered. Members are reminded that bringing<br />

guests to the <strong>Club</strong> is a privilege and that staff members are following the sign in<br />

procedures with everyone’s best interests in mind. The <strong>Club</strong>’s guest regulations<br />

2009 MeMBer surveY<br />

The <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> is a member owned club, therefore member feedback is<br />

vital to our success and to ensure that all <strong>Club</strong> members are fully enjoying their<br />

experience here. In April, we will launch an in depth member survey which will<br />

be conducted by a professional research company. The company, “eNRG<br />

Research Group“ will be contacting Shareholders and their families by email.<br />

Those members, who we do not have an email address for, will receive a<br />

letter from the <strong>Club</strong> informing you how to participate in the survey. Contact the<br />

membership department (403-338-2416) if you can provide us with your email<br />

address. The survey is completely confidential and anonymous with the results<br />

going directly to eNRG Research Group. The results will assist management and<br />

the Board in meeting member needs and expectations and will help guide any<br />

future changes. Thank you in advance for your time and feedback on this<br />

important survey, as we continue to strive towards excellence at the <strong>Calgary</strong><br />

<strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong>.<br />

PrOGraMs<br />

CWc members are invited to check out the Royal Canadian<br />

Golf Assocation (RCGA) Golf Centre at Four Seasons (7100<br />

- 15th Street SE). The RCGA Golf Centre is a year-round<br />

facility with heated driving range stalls, with grass tees in the<br />

summer, a nine hole par 3 golf course and an eighteen hole<br />

natural grass putting course. The Golf Centre offers lessons<br />

and programs with RCGA/CPGA Golf Professionals<br />

including computer interactive video coaching.<br />

Through an agreement arranged with the RCGA Golf Centre,<br />

<strong>Club</strong> members are able to access the facilities and services at<br />

the Golf Centre and obtain a discount on services and<br />

products including use of the golf range, green fees for the<br />

nine hole par 3 course and the eighteen hole natural grass<br />

putting course, the Golf Centre, the Pro Shop, and food and<br />

beverage services (discounting excludes golf instuction).<br />

<strong>Club</strong> members planning to use the facilities and services at<br />

the RCGA Golf Centre should register at the Centre using<br />

their <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> membership number. The discount package<br />

is equivalent to the RCGA Golf Centre Loyalty Card<br />

program, but without payment of the fee for that program.<br />

RCGA membership fees may be required for some programs<br />

and services offered. Check with the RCGA Golf Centre for<br />

that information.<br />

Members should register directly with the RCGA Golf Centre<br />

for all programs. The RCGA Golf Centre offers many<br />

instructional programs for beginners through to advanced<br />

players. Junior programs begin at age 4 with the Wee Links<br />

program and progress up to age 14 through the Future Links<br />

three level instructional program. This is a great opportunity<br />

for members to get an introduction to golf without joining a<br />

golf club. For more information on the RCGA Golf Centre<br />

and its programs, visit their website at www.rcgagolfcentre.<br />

org and for aspiring juniors, we encourage you to view the<br />

section titled “Strive For Excellence”, a new junior coaching<br />

and mental focus to achieve<br />

a stronger balance between mind and<br />

body, and teaches us a greater sense<br />

of completeness and balance for our<br />

daily lives. Hapkido used external<br />

skills (kicking and punching)<br />

combined with internal skills (joint<br />

manipulation, controlling opponents<br />

without using strength, pressure<br />

points and breathing) to arrive at an<br />

effective self-defense and fitness<br />

program for any age and lifestyle.<br />

earlY starters<br />

For our really young players just learning to move and make<br />

contact with the ball. Games will be used to teach the<br />

fundamentals. For ages 4 - 6, the camp is aimed at being fun.<br />

½ COurt<br />

This Program is for players between the ages of 5 - 8 years of<br />

age. It is part of a system called progressive tennis.<br />

Progressive tennis uses a systematic progression of<br />

equipment and court size to help young players develop<br />

their skills and tactics better at an earlier age. The half court<br />

program will develop inexperienced players through coordination<br />

and activities which will lead to the development of<br />

basic strokes and fundamentals. More experienced players<br />

will develop rally skills and begin competing with other<br />

players on the half court and move to ¾ court training.<br />

Racquets are provided.<br />

¾ COurt<br />

This class is for players up to the age of ten years old. Players<br />

in this class have either graduated from the progressive class<br />

or moved to this class at the direction of the tennis pros.<br />

11 aND Over<br />

Generally a course for players who have played a little in<br />

the past, but can be introductory. All aspects of the game are<br />

covered.<br />

uNDer 12<br />

This is a group for young players under 12 who have very<br />

high skill level and are interested training to improve<br />

competition skills. Should have pros permission or have<br />

played in the under 12 group.<br />

ChIlDCare fOCus Of the MONth<br />

tips for leaving reluctant children<br />

• Make the goodbye at the gate short and simple. Tell<br />

your child it is your turn to go exercise and their turn to<br />

play with their friends.<br />

• Do not get into a power struggle in the coatroom as this<br />

gets them more worked up and makes it more difficult<br />

for the child to calm down after you leave.<br />

• In the car talk about a plan<br />

for their time in the childcare<br />

and suggest some things they<br />

could do – make a painting for<br />

grandma, play cars etc.<br />

• Once the gate is answered say<br />

a quick goodbye and then let<br />

them in the gate or hand them<br />

over to the childcare staff.<br />

• Remember that if they are<br />

really inconsolable, we will<br />

come and get you after 10 or<br />

15 minutes.

If you are serious about eliminating dirt and allergens from your<br />

home, then you really only have one choice: VACUFLO.<br />

VACUFLO’S patented Cyclonic Filtration Technology creates<br />

a powerful centrifugal force the separates the dirt from the<br />

airflow and deposits 96-98% of all the debris into a remote dirt<br />

canister. The remaining fine particles are then exhausted<br />

outside. If exhausting is not possible, VACUFLO offers a<br />

Filtered Cyclonic Vacuum line. Both technologies give<br />

homeowners what they want- maximum vacuum power 100%<br />

of the time.<br />

may remember when they bowled on Saturday<br />

mornings. In fact, some of those members<br />

now have kids presently bowling in our<br />

youth leagues. Thanks to everyone who<br />

has supported our youth programs over the<br />

years. Once again, we’d like to fill our<br />

DID YOu kNOW…..<br />

The butterfly style evolved from the breaststroke. David<br />

Armbruster, swimming ‘coach’ at the University of Iowa<br />

researched the breaststroke, especially considering the<br />

problem of drag due to the underwater recovery. In 1934<br />

Armbruster allegedly refined a method to bring the arms<br />

forward over the water in a breaststroke. He called this “new”<br />

style “butterfly”. While the butterfly was difficult, it brought<br />

a great improvement in speed. One year later, Jack Sieg, a<br />

swimmer also from the University of Iowa, developed a kick<br />

technique involving swimming on his side and beating his<br />

legs in unison, similar to a fish tail, and then modified the<br />

technique afterward to swim it face down. He called this style<br />

Dolphin fishtail kick. Armbruster and Sieg quickly found that<br />

combining these techniques created a very fast swimming<br />

style consisting of butterfly arms with two dolphin kicks per<br />

cycle.<br />

fun enhances healing<br />

Fun and humor promote physiological and psychological<br />

healing. Physiological changes include an increase in<br />

endorphins, respiration, circulation and muscle strength and<br />

endurance. Exercise, meditation and relaxation promote the<br />

production of endorphins. Endorphins bind the<br />

neuro-receptors in the brain that give relief from pain.<br />

Fri/Sat/Sun, May 29 - June 7<br />

Decreasing pain through humor may allow a decrease in<br />

medication and help shorten recovery.<br />

When we laugh, we breathe deeply. We have a large exchange<br />

of air, oxygenating our systems and we breathe out toxins.<br />

Exercise increases respiration … fun with exercise will<br />

further increase respiration.<br />

When we laugh, we increase our heart rate and blood<br />

pressure. These increases help oxygenate our bodies and<br />

supply nutrients to our bodies more efficiently. Laughter<br />

increases muscle reactions which allows tense muscles to<br />

relax and weak muscles to strengthen.<br />

Having fun heightens sensory processing. The vestibular<br />

system is activated during movement, the proprioceptive<br />

system is stimulated by the pressure of the water; and vision<br />

and touch are more acute.<br />

Psychosocial effects of fun feed the spirit. Self-confidence is<br />

improved as a person becomes more involved and successful<br />

in fun activities. Once self-confidence increases,<br />

socialization improves. Feeling better about oneself allows<br />

for feeling better about social interactions which lead to<br />

a more relaxed state. With the reduction of stress through<br />

relaxation, cortisol levels are lowered, and in turn the immune<br />

system becomes stronger. Ultimately alertness increases,<br />

which finishes the circle of healing.<br />

Laughter increases oxygen, oxygen increases blood flow, with<br />

increased blood flow, the body has to work less to achieve<br />

success and stress is reduced. When stress is reduced,<br />

concentration increases which allows for heightened levels of<br />

awareness of self and the world around.<br />

The purpose of fun, play and humor is to promote<br />

rehabilitation by presenting a unique relaxed environment.<br />

The environment will promote a sense of confidence and put<br />

emphasis on success. Think fun!<br />

Submitted by Jackie St.George-Rennie for the <strong>Calgary</strong><br />

<strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> Physiotherapy Clinic<br />

It’s time for spring showers again (yes, maybe both rain and<br />

snow!), and thoughts of getting out in the yard to clean up<br />

and start planting begin to come to mind. But, as you dig,<br />

bend over, lift, move and create, it’s important to protect<br />

yourself from potential hazards. Most people don’t think<br />

of gardening as a serious physical activity, but it can be as<br />

intense as a good hike, game of tennis or round of golf. And<br />

most of us don’t even consider doing a 6 hour hike on our<br />

first day out, but that is exactly what we tend to do in the<br />

yard and garden. Don’t let your yard or garden become a<br />

pain in the neck; use these spring gardening tips to avoid<br />

injury.<br />

• Warm up. Do a brisk walk around the<br />

yard to plan your tasks. Do a few arm<br />

circles while you are at it.<br />

• Take a few minutes to stretch out your<br />

arms, legs, back and neck.<br />

• Rotate gardening tasks from those<br />

which require large muscle use, such<br />

as lifting, to those which use smaller<br />

muscle groups, such as weeding. This prevents muscle<br />

fatigue and overuse injuries.<br />

• Follow the proper rules of lifting: face the object that<br />

you are going to lift, bend your knees (instead of your<br />

back), contract the abdominal muscles and keep the<br />

weight close to you as you stand up. For awkward<br />

objects, enlist a helper.<br />

• When carrying heavy loads, distribute the weight<br />

evenly from side to side if possible (two buckets partly<br />

full are better than one really heavy one).<br />

• Use the newer ergonomic gardening tools. Longer<br />

handles provide more power and are appropriate for<br />

tasks requiring full body motion. Shorter handles<br />

provide leverage control and are better for smaller<br />

tasks. Ensure the grip is the right size for your hand. It<br />

should be the same diameter as a circle formed by your<br />

thumb and forefinger. Keep your tools sharp. Less<br />

effort is required to dig out those weeds!<br />

• Use a potting stool, bench and/or knee pads when<br />

weeding to save your knees and back.<br />

• When able, work below shoulder height and keep<br />

elbows partially bent, wrists in a neutral position.<br />

Alternate hands for those tasks which require less<br />

dexterity. Use both hands for heavier work.<br />

• When pruning, get close in to the bush and don’t use an<br />

awkward foot position which may cause you to fall.<br />

• Have someone hold your ladder if you need to get<br />

higher.<br />

• Take time to “smell the roses”. Your yard and garden<br />

are there for your enjoyment!<br />

Be sure and check the Junior bulletin board now for the latest<br />

information on all of the various junior curling camps<br />

available during the summer months. The Alberta Rocks<br />

camp in Leduc in August sponsored by the Alberta Curling<br />

Federation is very popular and fills up quickly. Two camps<br />

are offered each year. The first runs from August 15 - 18, and<br />

the second from August 20 - 23. Many other provinces also<br />

host curling camps during the summer months. There are<br />

great ones in Saskatchewan, Ontario, and BC, to name a few.<br />

Don’t forget the <strong>Calgary</strong> Youth Curling Association’s<br />

Enhancement Camp held in mid-September each year. Check<br />

out their website at www.calgaryyouthcurling.com or at<br />

thaNk YOu vOluNteers & staff<br />

Our junior and adult curling programs could not be<br />

successful without the help of many volunteers and, of<br />

course, my trusted staff. As your curling professional, I rely<br />

heavily on a dedicated group of individuals who give up their<br />

time every week to help with our instructional programs. I<br />

would like to say a special thank you to the following people<br />

who were instrumental in the success of our programs this<br />

year:<br />

tIP Of the MONth – WeIGht JuDGeMeNt WIthOut stOPWatChes<br />

Stopwatches are a useful tool for monitoring how the ice is running but they can be distracting or misleading if used<br />

improperly. It looks easy on television when teams give each other split times and discuss what speed of rock they’ll throw<br />

but those teams practice frequently and have more consistent deliveries and releases than recreational curlers.<br />

If you are just starting out, you’re better off trying to hone your speed-reading instincts without a stopwatch.<br />

Like most skills, about the only way to learn how to judge weight is through practice.<br />

At every opportunity, judge the weight of your rocks, your teammates’ rocks and your opponents’ rocks.<br />

When sweeping, make use of your developing skills to keep your skip informed about the weight of the rock as you move<br />

down the ice. Don’t be afraid to change your opinion as you go, just make sure you give your update to the skip.<br />

Try this drill at your next team practice: one person will throw rocks and everyone else stands at the near<br />

hogline with notepads. As soon as the rock is released, the players at the hogline write down where they think<br />

the rock will end up then watch the shot and see where it actually finishes. Make it into a game if you like - the person<br />

who guesses the most weight predictions correctly gets free bevvies from the team after practice.<br />

Stopwatches can be a great tool for curlers, but for newer club curlers,<br />

you will be far better off in the long run if you develop good weight judging instincts.<br />

Well, here we are again nearing the end<br />

of another season. We hosted our usual<br />

array of fall events including the Palmer,<br />

Diamond and St Nick’s spiels. December<br />

and January included the Kingsmith, the<br />

Juvenile Preplaydown Spiel, the Juvenile<br />

Men’s District Playdowns and the Curling<br />

Night Out Skins Game.<br />

Some of the highlights included having a<br />

junior men’s team, the Kevin Yablonski<br />

rink, win the Alberta title and go on to<br />

represent us at the Junior National Curling<br />

Championships in February in Salmon<br />

Arm, BC. January saw Cheryl Bernard<br />

capturing the Alberta Women’s Crown and<br />

heading off to the Scotties Tournament of<br />

Hearts in Victoria, BC, where she<br />

narrowly missed the playoffs.<br />

New developments included TSN taking<br />

over broadcasting rights to the finals of<br />

the CCA’s Season Of Champions events<br />

from the CBC. This was also the premiere<br />

season for the new Dominion Curling<br />

Championships whereby men’s and<br />

women’s club champions from across the<br />

province compete for the right to advance<br />

to the first national championship in<br />

Toronto next November.<br />

All eyes turned to the Brier in March,<br />

where we watched an outstanding field<br />

play at the Saddledome right here in<br />

<strong>Calgary</strong>.<br />

eND Of aNOther seasON<br />

The CWC season wrapped up with the<br />

various <strong>Club</strong> Championships including a<br />

new draw format for the Senior Women.<br />

They were followed by the Oilmen’s Spiel<br />

in late March and finally the City Championships<br />

at the <strong>Calgary</strong> Curling <strong>Club</strong> in<br />

early April.<br />

And what does next year hold in store for<br />

us? Well, for one thing, Vancouver will<br />

host the <strong>Winter</strong> Olympics next<br />

February which means this fall we will<br />

all be treated to some great curling at the<br />

Pre-trials event in Prince George and the<br />

Olympic Trials in Edmonton.<br />

For another thing, there will be a new<br />

Curling Professional at the helm next<br />

season. My wife has accepted an offer to<br />

transfer to Ontario to work for a couple of<br />

years in a home-based, salaried,<br />

consulting role. As it turns out, this is<br />

actually a rather fortuitous turn of events<br />

in light of the current economic situation.<br />

Yet another stepping stone on the path to<br />

“Freedom 85”!<br />

This move will afford us the opportunity<br />

to take up residence this April in cottage<br />

country in the town of Penetanguishene<br />

on the shores of Georgian Bay about four<br />

blocks from the local 6 sheet curling club<br />

where Russ and Glenn Howard cut their<br />

teeth as juniors.<br />

Without getting too verklempt here, I<br />

do want to say that these past 8 years<br />

at the CWC have been, by far, the<br />

most enjoyable years in my<br />

somewhat checkered career. It’s been<br />

all about the people and we all know<br />

that curlers are the best of the best.<br />

Members and staff alike have all<br />

contributed to making these 8 years<br />

fun and worthwhile. I do want to say<br />

a special thanks to Al Grose who has<br />

been a great mentor and friend.<br />

I will remember my time at the CWC<br />

with great fondness. Thanks,<br />

everyone!<br />

Dear <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> Members:<br />

Happy spring!<br />

I had the pleasure of taking a few weeks away to the South and have enjoyed the warm sunshine.<br />

While in the south I learned to swing my pings better and experienced the changes that have<br />

encompassed the United States. As a true Albertan I realized how blessed we are and am happy to<br />

live in this beautiful province.<br />

James and I are back at work here and happy to assist you with all you real estate requiements. We<br />

also have Chris remaining on staff and as well Twila Gaudet will be joining us with handling a portion<br />

of the administration details. Give us a call for coffee and let's discuss what is happening and what<br />

we have learned to date. We are here for you and will work hard to prepare your portfolio.<br />

Happy Easter to you all and wish you a very good 2009. We will be having a seminar in the near<br />

future - stay tuned for dates and times!<br />

saY What?!<br />

Signs of hearing loss including asking people to repeat, trouble listening in background noise<br />

or turning up the television too loud should not be ignored. Although approximately 23% of adult<br />

Canadians experience some degree of hearing loss, many people don’t realize how much<br />

they’re missing. This is because most hearing loss is gradual, due to the slow wear and tear<br />

of the inner ear hair cells over time, much like the wear and tear of tire treads.<br />

Those who think they can get by without help are technically correct, however research shows<br />

that hearing loss treatment with hearing aids reduces isolation, improves relationships with family<br />

and friends and increases independence and awareness of an individuals’ surroundings.<br />

Early hearing loss treatment is crucial for a successful outcome. Our brain requires auditory activity to<br />

keep up its ability to understand what it hears over our lifetime. It is important to ‘exercise’ our brain<br />

for our hearing just as we complete crosswords puzzles to keep up our vocabulary and<br />

memory skills. The longer the brain goes without auditory input, such as with untreated hearing loss,<br />

the more difficult it is to relearn to listen to what we’d like to hear.<br />

If you have hearing aids and continue to experience difficulties hearing, it may be time to reevaluate your hearing<br />

and/or your hearing aids. New technology has improved dramatically over the past few years impacting sound quality<br />

and hearing aid comfort. Additionally, other assistive devices can help with hearing loss in combination with hearing aids.<br />

These include FM systems (which help when listening in noise), television and telephone amplifiers<br />

and shake awake alarm clocks for example. Finally, there are even courses offered in<br />

<strong>Calgary</strong> by the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Society that help you learn how to manage your hearing loss and to lip read.<br />

If you or your loved ones experience hearing loss, there is likely something that may help the specific situation,<br />

so don’t delay. It’s definitely worth investigating your options. Finally, there are several programs that exist to<br />

help offset the cost of hearing aids and assistive listening devices for individuals in Alberta.<br />

2009 MEMBER SURVEY<br />

The <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong> is a member owned club, therefore member<br />

feedback is vital to our success and to ensure that all <strong>Club</strong> members are<br />

fully enjoying their experience here. In April, we will launch an in depth<br />

member survey which will be conducted by a professional research<br />

company. The company, “eNRG Research Group“ will be contacting<br />

Shareholders and their families by email. Those members, who we do not<br />

have an email address for, will receive a letter from the <strong>Club</strong> informing you<br />

how to participate in the survey. Contact the membership department<br />

(403-338-2416) if you can provide us with your email address. The survey<br />

is completely confidential and anonymous with the results going directly to<br />

eNRG Research Group. The results will assist management and the Board<br />

in meeting member needs and expectations and will help guide any future<br />

changes. Thank you in advance for your time and feedback on this<br />

important survey, as we continue to strive towards excellence at the<br />

<strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong>.<br />

Announcing A new Addition Added to our<br />

list of reciprocAl clubs for you to visit!<br />

We continue to add value to your membership at the <strong>Calgary</strong> <strong>Winter</strong> <strong>Club</strong>,<br />
