NEW KURSPA HOMEOWNERS DAY GUEST POLICY

As of January 1, 2018 - the KurSpa will no longer be accepting Predator Ridge Resort Guests and in its place is extending a new policy to Predator Ridge Homeowners

  • All Homeowners will be welcome to bring up to two (2) additional guests with them as Day Guests.
  • The $40 + tax per guest fee will still be applicable.
  • Any KurSpa treatment requests will be based on availability.
  • The Homeowner must be present and staying in the KurSpa with their Guest at all times. This means a homeowner is not able to drop a guest off to use the KurSpa, they need to be staying with them in the KurSpa.
  • Homeowners can register and book treatments directly with KurSpa Reception as previously done, please note all homeowners and guests must be registered with the KurSpa reception prior to arrival. This will ensure we have sufficient lockers ready.  
  • The Homeowner must have a Homeowner card present with their homeowner number on it.

North Okanagan REALTORS® 40th Annual Food Drive

We are delighted to welcome back the Vernon and area REALTORS® Christmas Food Drive to Predator Ridge this December. 

Now in its 40th year, the Realtor Food Drive embraces the spirit of giving by supporting food banks throughout the North Okanagan. 

REALTORS® will be going door-to-door collecting for their 40th Annual Food Drive on Wednesday, December 6th, 2017 -- starting at 3:00 p.m 

Once again, residents of Vernon and Coldstream are being asked to donate non-perishable food items for the Salvation Army Food Bank. Their generous contributions will help meet the need for Christmas hampers and stock the shelves well into the New Year. As we are all aware, the need is great. 

In many neighbourhoods, grocery bags with notes asking for a food donation will be tied to door handles the day before so that residents can be prepared before the collection night.

Should homes be missed on December 6th, residents are asked to call any local real estate office and someone will be pleased to pick up their donation.  Bags left on the door will be picked up the following day. 

Also, if anyone is interested in making a cash donation - envelopes can also be dropped off at the Lodge and receipts will be sent out from Salvation Army - please make cheques payable to “Salvation Army Food Bank" 

► VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!!
If you would like to volunteer to help or if you have any questions, please contact Predator Ridge resident Teresa Prince at: (250) 938-1753 or by email at:teresaprince@telus.net.

USE OF THE GOLF COURSE DURING THE WINTER

As a friendly reminder (once the snow returns) please ensure you stay off of the greens and tee boxes on the golf courses. This includes tobogganing, nordic skiing and/or snowshoeing. This is extremely important so the delicate grasses on these areas are not damaged.

If you happen to see anyone on any green or tee box, we would appreciate your assistance in informing everyone about the importance of staying off of these sensitive areas.

Thanks in advance for your assistance!
