VVCA is looking for community volunteers to assist in flooding and clearing the rink this coming winter. Does this sound like something you can commit some time to?
Contact Barb at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want more details or to volunteer.
If we don’t get volunteers, we may not be able to operate the rink this winter!
Don’t forget to buy some raffle tickets for our community (Brunskill) rink renovation fundraiser.
Due to the pandemic, the draw date has been changed to Tuesday FEBRUARY 23, 2021.
Tickets: $5 each or 3 for $10.
See our Rink page for more details.
NOTE that some members of VVCA will be canvassing the community starting the week of November 23 to sell tickets door to door. They will be observing social distancing and best practices for the pandemic.
Feeling bored? Want to do something outside in this mild winter weather? Good news!

Please support our Varsity View Community Association Rink Renovation Project Raffle!
Our local Varsity View community skating rink brings together adults and children alike for fun with friends and family all winter long with skating and hockey. It feels like old fashioned place where friends and strangers meet, come and go, join an informal game of hockey or skate around and have a chat. From young kids, to college students, to grandparents, all play together and the natural harmony created is infectious.
This community rink is in dire need of a renovation, as the boards and fences are damaged and even dangerous. We are hoping to raise money to re-fence, re-board and regrade the rink, but we must raise money to make this dream a reality!
We created a raffle with the following fabulous prizes, some donated by businesses in our community:
Grand Prize: $1500 cash
2nd Prize: $200 cash plus Crew Rowhouse 12 class pass valued at $225
3rd Prize: $200 cash plus $175 All in the Wild Gallery gift certificate
4th, 5th, 6th and 7th Prize: $50 D’lish by Tish gift cards
3 tickets for $10 or 1 ticket for $5
Draw date: FEBRUARY 23, 2021
Covid-19 put a damper on our fundraising efforts, and the need for community members to play outside all year-round is greater than ever!
We offer contactless ticket purchase by emailing email@example.com, and using e-transfer to that email. We will send you a picture of the tickets and ticket numbers, and if you desire the original tickets we will mail them to you.
This is a great local cause and every dollar raised is a dollar that goes straight to the renovation!
The outdoor skating rink at Brunskill School – operated and maintained by the VVCA – has seen better days. Repairs and upgrades are needed on the boards and netting around the rink. Volunteers on the board and community are keen on doing the work, but they just need the supplies.
In order to help finance the costs, the VVCA is holding a Raffle in support of the Brunskill Rink Renovation Project.

2nd Prize: Crew Rowhouse Gym 12 classes pass (worth $225) plus $200 Cash
