It’s almost time…tickets for our annual BIG EVENT featuring THE SHAWN LIGHTFOOT BAND and DJ Patrick Riley are SOLD OUT!  The date is fast approaching (Feb 2nd) and we're sending out a FINAL invitation for sponsorship by donating items to the silent auction along with other local businesses and individuals. If you have already donated THANK YOU!!!  Deadline for donations is January 26, 2018 but why wait for the last minute. For details on the promotional exposure this sponsorship will achieve, see the sponsor invitation here.
Huge huge thanks to all our contributing partners, including the incredible team at Skookum Cycle and Ski who did the heavy lifting selling tickets over Christmas. Thank you - you all rock! Be sure to stop in and show them some love by supporting their business - but please don't hound them for wait-list tickets. We ask everyone to turn to the Shuswap Trails Facebook site to self-manage any ticket exchanges.
Our thanks also to Lakeside Printing for sponsoring the tickets and posters, and to EZ Rock Radio for keeping us live. EZ Rock still has a few final sets of tickets to give away - so be sure to listen!
The Auction Sponsor table is looking very cool - for a sneak peek check out the growing list of always incredible business supporters below - and again, be sure to return the gratitude by supporting their businesses.
Thank you, again, everyone. All funds raised go directly to building and maintaining trails throughout the Shuswap. 10 new trails and over 12,000 metres added in 2017 thanks to the last Trail Party, and 10 new trails targeted for 2018!!!
