September 25th – **Bi-annual Membership Sale!!** Runs until October 9th. Things are a little bit different this time around! If you don’t have an existing annual membership, the cost is $999+GST. If you are renewing an annual membership, the special edition, thank you covid-19, cost is only $733+GST! What? Well this takes into account the extension we gave everyone for the time we were closed at the beginning of the pandemic (83 days) plus an extra two weeks (14 days) to help people ease back into things, for a total of 97 days. Now in order to keep things, well, in order and on schedule, in other words, the bi-annual sales at the end of September and again at the end of March, we’re just knocking 97 days worth off of the regular sale price. Thanks covid-19!! Once again, this deal ONLY applies to existing annual members who bought their pass at the end of September/beginning of October 2019
