FREE BBQ & Skate for Jozo Members

BBQ for Jozo members organized by Blue Mountain Resort

Tickets to the free BBQ on Feb 8 for Jozo members put on by Blue Mountain Resort (BMR) went in a flash!

BMR staffing limited the number of people they could accommodate so there was a limit on tickets. It would be a nice gesture if any adults with BBQ tickets passed theirs on to children who didn’t get any.

By the way, this is part of our Membership Benefit Program so you must show your keytag or card with your eventbrite ticket.

See the attached note from Becki Relihan of BMR: 

I would like to start off by saying WOW to the numbers that have signed up for this weekend’s BBQ! The RSVPs flooded in faster than I could track, and I am thrilled that you have a group that wants to participate.

Unfortunately, we had to place a cap on the event of 200 attendees. This being our first year testing some social activities for the club we cannot support more than that this go round. At the event I will be present to scan tickets and provide a physical entry ticket for those who registered.

If you have registered via Eventbrite, please bring your virtual ticket with you to be scanned and your Jozo membership card – you will not be able to participate if you do not present your membership card.

Again I apologize for having to create a limit on this event, but am thrilled to see such a positive response and look forward to continuing to grow an event like this in the coming years.”

Thank you, Becki Relihan

BMR is also hosting a free skate night on Feb 28 at the skating loop above Orchard.  Same deal with signing up so they know how many tickets to issue.
