Sunday Skate & Soul!

BTCA Skate Soul Sundays Facebook Event

Join us for free public family ice skating every Sunday from 10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon at the brand new Banff Trail Community Centre Outdoor Rink (at least until the ice melts, anyway). If you haven’t seen the rink yet, it’s on the corner of 20 Ave and 20 St NW, right behind the community centre.
There will be free coffee for the parents and hot chocolate for the kiddos (bring a mug, if you remember). Every Sunday will also be soundtracked with classic soul music by the likes of Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke, and The Temptations. Just a heads up that no hockey equipment will be allowed on the ice during the open skate.
It doesn’t matter whether you just turned 1 or 100 years old, grab a pair of skates and swing down this Sunday (and the one after that…) for this free public event (no community membership required). See you there!

Participate in Filming a PSA at our Rink – Fri, Jan. 5th, 2018

Hidden Story Productions is looking for some extras interested in playing shinny hockey at the Banff Trail Community rink for this Friday (Jan 5, 2018) from 11 am to 3 pm.Skating on the Rink

We’re filming a short Public Service Announcement (PSA) about needless idling.  No acting or professional hockey skills required as all you have to do is have fun on the ice rink. We’re looking for a diversity of community to come out, so if you are able to come out for 11 am (awesome) or 1 pm (great too) then come out with your skates and sticks.

See you there.

Notice of Community Association Bylaw Change

At our June 9th AGM (7pm at the hall), we will propose and vote on a bylaw change:
Change of 4.2.1 from “The Board of Directors shall convene an Annual General Meeting of the Membership on or before June 15 of each year.” to “… on or before September 30 of each year.”
This is to give the bookkeeping and account auditing process more time, as it’s quite tight to get it completed prior to June 15th, as well as to move the election of new board members to the fall when our meetings are more regular.
