Volunteers Needed August 22-23!

August 13th, 2015

Request to our membership for volunteers to help with the refurbishment of the AFA pistes that are residing in Calgary

We will be cleaning the backing of the pistes that are going to be used for the U of C event in September. We need hands and expertise on what needs to be done but roughly what is needed is to remove the backing currently on the metal sections and replace with new rubber backing. The job entails much scraping, application of acetone and contact cement. Masks and cartridges for the fumes, gloves for the chemicals, and some drills for the wire brush scraping will be provided.

Time and location:
1 – 2080 39 Ave NE
August 22 and 23
9 to 5 each day

Please contact the Club if you have any questions. Thanks for your support!
