 Race Bibs       Identifiable clothing for coaches (Returned at the end of the season)

 Name Badges for coaches

 If the cost of the item is not reached, I designate the board to apply my donations to another requested item.

The Silent Auction will be held November 6th at a location to be determined. The proceeds from this auction allow
the Ski Ward Race team coaches and board members the funds to provide your children with the best possible
coaching and racing experience. With this money we are able to send our coaches to a coach’s clinic at the
beginning of the season to learn about the latest racing techniques and coaching methods. We are also hoping to
purchase new race bibs this year to replace the old ones. If your company wants to be a sponsor please let us
know.

Finally, we are hoping that you will be willing to donate items to the Silent Auction. These items do not have to be
ski related. In the past there have been Red Sox tickets, vacation weeks, race helmets, ski’s, restaurant gift cards,
jewelry, wine, and many other exciting items.

Please send this form in with your race team registration and will contact you as the event gets closer.

If you have any questions please email Bill at vitesse42@aol.com or Paul Konz at pkonz@townisp.com.
