Notices for Tuesday, November 10, 2015

Dear WHC families

As tomorrow, Wednesday, November 11 is a holiday, there will be no regular practices at the Orange Dome.

Open/Closed Practices: This week practices are OPEN.  Please remember that open practices mean that you are allowed in the gym, but must remain in one of the viewing areas.  Our coaches and team moms don’t enjoy being the ‘bad guys’ and having to consistently ask people to remain in a room.  Please don’t abuse these Open gym privileges.

Mandatory Extra Practice for Devotion:  Sunday, November 15, 2015 from 12 – 2 pm
Team Builders:

Innovation, Wonder & Prodigy: These three teams have a team builder scheduled at Hop Skip Jump on November 10 (TODAY) from 6-8 pm.  The cost is $10 per child payable at the door. You will have the place to yourselves!  Siblings of the athletes are welcome to attend.
Brilliance team builder will be held on Sunday, November 15, 2015 at the Atlantic Cirque facility at 2:45 pm. It is located at 30 Oland Court in Burnside. You are required to sign a waiver to attend.Practice Gear: The practice gear store from Total Spirit is still open until November 15th. It can be found by going to the pro-shop link on our website, and clicking on the link to the team store. We also have some new items in the office at the gym, come check it out!  https://westhalifaxcheer.com/pro-shop/

Fundraising Reminders:

Candles

If you placed an order for candles they were made available for pick up last night.  At the end of the night there were still boxes that had not been picked up.  As a reminder, WHC will not be responsible for any candles that may go missing if you do not pick up your order!

BMO – Bank Accounts

Please remember that if you would like to open an account with BMO and have $50 deposited into your account they will be at the gym TODAY, Nov. 10th at approximately 6:30 pm.  Please remember to bring 2 pieces of ID.  They will also open an account for a child if they are not in attendance, however the parent or guardian requires ID to do so.

Avon Orders

If you are going to place an Avon Order they are due no later than Wednesday, Nov. 11th, however, since there won’t be regular practices due to Remembrance Day, it would be appreciated if all orders can be returned tonight.

Online Auction

Please forward any photos of your items to Amy@westhalifaxcheer.com so Amy and Kim can upload them to the FB Auction page.  If you have gift certificates or letters, you can bring them into the the gym so photos can be taken of them and placed on the page.  We are hoping to have the auction live by the end of this week.  Amy and Kim will keep you notified of the date!

Statements: The goal is to send the statements out by the end of this week, or early next. Please remember that any payments made after the end of October will not be reflected.  Any questions, please email Erica Royal. Email money transfers can be emailed to erica@westhalifaxcheer.com.

Competition Dates: Our current competition dates and associated information can be found here: https://westhalifaxcheer.com/competition-dates-2016/

Have you heard the great news!?  Exhibition Park has been saved!  This means that Cheer Blast AND Provincials will now be hosted at Exhibition Park (Happy Dance!!).

Thanks to everyone who helped put our beautiful NEW spring floor together!  We feel so blessed to have 19 strips of spring floor in the Orange Dome!  Also, have you noticed that our NEW huge clock is also up and will be in use starting next Mon. Nov. 16!  This clock will help keep teams on time (built in alarms) and assist coaches with better management of their lesson plans.

Watch out for a gym full of mustaches sometime this month in support of Movember!  Also, a HUGE thank you to everyone who donated coats for 101.3 The Bounce’s 24 Hours Under the Covers for Coats!  It’s amazing that WHC can continue to support our community.

Hope you have a great week!

Your Board of Directors,

Ashley, Jana and Erica
