GKHAT to host fundraising barbecue

The Golden Kicking Horse Alpine Team is hosting a Christmas Parade barbecue.

The Golden Kicking Horse Alpine Team will be out in the freezing cold on Nov. 25 to serve you hamburgers and hotdogs. From 5 to 8 p.m., the coaches, parents and kids with GKHAT will be hosting a barbecue fundraiser at Kumsheem Park, just opposite the movie theatre.

The profits are going to furnishing the new clubhouse that has just been built at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.

“We’re really happy it’s up, but now we need to fill it,” said Mark Baxendale, communication director for GKHAT.

The club, which is still accepting registrations, is also offering a CSCF (Canadian Ski Coaches Federation) Entry Level Coaching Course.

“I took it last year, and it’s a phenomenal course,” said Baxendale. “It seemed to bring all courses together.”

The coaching fundamentals that are taught, Baxendale has found useful in other sports organizations that he is involved in. GKHAT president Pete Russell will be teaching the course on Jan. 20 to 22.

The GKHAT board currently has a vacant position, as their treasurer Judy Kardash is leaving.

“Judy has left her replacement with a pretty easy system, so I’m putting this call our for a volunteer willing to slide into the position of treasurer,” said Russell.
