CBSC Centennial Program
and How to Participate
!

 

Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about the CBSC Centennial Celebrations in 2018.  Some of the events will have capacity limits so you would be well-advised to plan ahead and sign-up early - you don’t want to be on the wrong side of the fence when all the fun is happening.


Please share this info with anyone you know who may want to be part of the fun!

       What’s planned for Summer 2018

       Which events are free and which ones require a separate registration and fee

       How to sign up and reserve spots for you and your family

       How to get one of the Camp A cabins for the Reunion Weekend

       Why you will want to be at your computer at 9:00pm on Monday night, August 21, 2017

 

This may seem like a lot of information.  But it’s a good read.  You should have seen the first draft – it almost broke the internet when we tried to send it out.  This is a much tighter version; and there are some good chuckles sprinkled throughout.  Pour a glass of wine, gather your family around, and settle in for a sweet CBSC read!  Sure beats whatever’s on CNN.

A Centennial celebration comes around only once every 100 years, and you and your family are amongst the lucky ones who will be celebrating the CBSC Centennial!  We've put a tonne of effort into creating some great events so that past and present seahorses can get together and celebrate all that is great about our CBSC Summers.  We hope you are as excited as we are for Summer 2018.

THE BASICS

 

There will be lots of Centennial celebrating throughout the summer of 2018 but the big concentration of events will be on the Centennial Reunion Weekend July 26-29, 2018.  If you are coming to CB from out of town, you should plan to include this weekend in your visit.

      If you want to participate in ANY of the activities during the Centennial Reunion Weekend, you need 
       to be either: 

          -  a 2018 CBSC member; or

          -  an Alumni CBSC member who has purchased a “CBSC Reunion Weekend Package”
            (don’t worry –  they’re only $20 per person)

     Who qualifies as CBSC Alumni? Anyone who has been a member of the CBSC at any time over the
      past 100 years.

      To be a member or to buy your CBSC Reunion Weekend Package, you will need to have an
       account in ActiveNet
(that’s the registration system we’ve been using in recent years so if you’re
       a current member, you already have an account; scroll down for the link)

      -  ActiveNet accounts contain the names of all people in your immediate family.  You need to  
                check your account to be sure that everyone in your family is listed on your account.  If they
                aren’t listed, you won’t be able to sign them up for anything.

      -  CBSC ActiveNet accounts are supposed to include only parents/guardians and their
                 children

      -  If you have managed to sneak in a third generation or some cousins onto your account,
                 you need to get those extra folks off of your account and onto their own accounts. 

•   When you register for one of the Centennial events, you’re only allowed to register the
        people in your immediate family – grandparents and great aunts and best friends have to 
        create their own accounts and register themselves. 

•   Tickets bought for people not in your immediate family will be revoked (that sounds nasty, but 
         it’s really easy – and free - for them to create their own accounts so we aren’t going to feel
         badly at all if we have to revoke a few tickets)

•        Alumni creating ActiveNet accounts must create one account per family grouping 
         (parents/guardians and their children)

•    PRO TIP: your ActiveNet account is NOT the same as your cbswimclub.ca website logon     
          credentials.  The cbswimclub.ca website asks for an email address and password to sign you up
          for the eSeahorse, which is great.  But to actually register for stuff and pay money, you need an
          ActiveNet account – way more security and a totally separate website.


      SO, BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE, log onto your ActiveNet account and make sure that everyone in your family is properly identified.  And if you need to create a new account, do that now too.

Go to:  https://ca.apm.activecommunities.com/cbsc/Home

     There will not be any paper tickets for Centennial events.  You’ll register each person individually.   
       The online roster will be the one-and-only official list.  Admissions are non-transferrable. 

      Refunds?  Of course!  If you can’t use one of your admissions, you’ll be able to get a refund as long
       as we have a waiting list for the event and we are able to sell your admission to someone else.  Yes,
       there will be a small admin fee for refunds.

HOW TO BUY ONE OF THE CAMP ALEXANDRA CABINS


The cabins at Camp A are available to CBSC members for rent during the CBSC Centennial Reunion Weekend July 26 – 29, 2018.  We have secured them all.  Now we are offering them to you!  Having one of these cabins will give you and your family a lockable home base for the entire Reunion Weekend, which will be ideal for the activities taking place at Camp A including Super Bingo, the Friday night adult party, all Saturday activities, and the Saturday night family party.  You also get that most precious of Crescent Beach commodities – BEDS!

(see cabin details HERE for complete info)


     Two were sold at Parents Night Out in July.  The remaining 5 are now being made available to the 
       CBSC Community on a lottery basis. The prices have been set and are listed below.

      If you want to secure a cabin, make sure you have an ActiveNet account, then send an email
       to ineedacabin@cbswimclub.ca before September 30, 2017, and provide the following info:

       -  Your name, phone number and email address

       -  Your preference of cabins – please list all that you would be willing to take, in order from first
          choice to last choice. 

      At the end of application period, we will conduct a random draw and the first 5 names selected will 
       get a cabin, with the first drawn getting their top choice, second drawn getting top choice of
       remaining cabins, and so on.

      The winners will be notified so payments can be made.  A waiting list will be established. 

      Refunds will be available if we have an interested replacement buyer on the waiting list.  There will
       be a $50 admin fee for refunds.  

     CABIN PRICES (yes, the PNO auction buyers had to pay a premium – but by doing so they were
      able to secure one of these awesome beauties without going through a lottery – they grabbed them   
      before the cabins were trendy; now everybody wants one!):


                 Cabin 1 (7 beds)                           SOLD $ 1,100

                 Cabin 2 (4 beds)                           $ 750
