Social Club 2019 Annual Raffle has been CANCELED
We have been notified by the board that our raffles and 50/50 draws are illegal as we do not have a gaming license and after checking the AGLC website, as far as I can see, we do not qualify for a license. The board has made it clear that if we hold a raffle or 50/50 we are wholly responsible for the outcome if we are reported and as such they have deemed these events as "un-sanctioned". They have offered no alterative way for us to raise money.
The Board is more than happy for us to continue running raffles and 50/50 draws as long as we know that if anything happens we are going to be hung out to dry with no support from them.
They have also declared the Road Cleanup as an "un-sanctioned" event in case someone was to get hurt and sue the Condo. Again, they offered no options for us.
They have also (once again) complained about this website, citing that it is causing confusion.
In the Boards defense they are protecting the legal interests of themselves and the lot owners but the way in which it has been presented does not sit well with me, nor does it sit well with Dave or Veronica, the Social Club Chair.
After much discussion, Dave, Veronica and myself have decide to step down from the Social Club and let the Board run it as they see fit.
Thank you for your support over the last few years and we will see you around the fire.

SUNDRE PRO RODEO and PARADE
Spring Time Means Bear Time:
BearSmart has already reported a black bear sighting along the Burnt Timber Road. The warmer weather and rapidly melting snow pack may prompt more bears to leave their dens, but they'll be hungry and searching for whatever food may be available to them.
If you donít want bears in your yard, donít provide them with a meal!
- Make sure your garbage is stored securely.
- After using your BBQ, clean up the grease trap and grill.
- Put away your bird feeders.
- Donít leave pet food outside.
Bears are always hungry and always searching for food. If a bear finds something to eat in your yard, it will remember and may return to look for more. Now that the bears are out and about, carry your bear spray and/or a noisemaker and remain vigilant when outdoors.

A couple of reminders
∑ Remember to properly latch garbage containment doors behind you when you use them.
∑ Please refrain from setting out feed for deer. It can be detrimental to the deer population, particularly in winter. It also attracts predators to our area, making it unsafe for our children and pets.
Watch Your Speed
The speed limit in the Park is a Maximum of 15KM
starting at the front Gate
We have had complaints about dust raised by people speeding in the park so please slow down and make sure your visitors are also aware of this.

Safety notes - Use these trails at your own risk.
WALKING TRAILS: Please remember that we live in a natural forest area and even though there are various trails through the trees on common property, these paths are not maintained and there are trees, tree limbs and deadfall throughout the area that can be very dangerous especially when it is windy.
Bergen Springs - Fire Pit guidelines
This guideline meets the County of Mountain View definition of an "acceptable Fire-pit".
Albert Fire Bans web site
During a "Mountainview County "partial fire ban" the Board has decided to err on the side of caution and will initiate a Full Fire Ban within the park. This is a good decision as we have so much to loose if a fire were to occur in the park.
Please DO NOT EVER dump ashes into the dumpsters.
See Dumpsters in left hand column
Check out The Bergen News for local interests and stories about our area. http://www.thebergennews.ca
Please remember that, as agreed on at the last AGM, all ATV/golf carts/motor bikes/ etc... should have your lot number clearly marked on the vehicle. This also applies to any visitors vehicles.
NOTE: It is the owners responsibility to ensure their guests are aware of and follow the bylaws.
There are NO OFF ROAD AREAS FOR MOTORIZED VEHICLES anywhere within the park. (quads, ski-doos or what ever). Also, the 15 KM/Hr speed limit applies to all vehicles. If you have guests in the park driving any vehicles around please make sure they know and abide by the rules.
Emergency Exit - Lot 110
This is just a note to remind everyone (or inform anyone who may not know) that our Emergency exit at Lot 110 is for emergency access only. The owners of lot 110 have been gracious enough to allow this Emergency exit through their lot, but it is NOT a pathway or casual use access. Please do not trespass on their property (except in the event of an actual emergency ex. forest fire). Thank you for being good neighbours.
BSCA Board of Directors
Notice to Pet Owners:
In the past we have had several complaints about dogs (especially large dogs) leaving their mess on the road, on private property and on common property. It is the pet owners responsibility and OBLIGATION to pick up after their pets. Just because it is winter it does not mean you can scrape a little snow over it because it will still be there in the spring for your neighbours to to see, smell and ultimately have to clean up.
Please be responsible and clean up after your pets.
