Important LinksKitchen Schedule & Kitchen Volunteer Signup Form

Welcome to all new and returning members!
First of all please feel free to share your feedback (positive and/or constructive) with Rod McLean, your Kitchen Committee Chair, and the team of volunteers at
The Tyee Kitchen is a volunteer run service providing warmth and nourishment to our young athletes and their families in the Tyee cabin. The cabin and kitchen provide a great social atmosphere for our children, and for parents as well. We purchase the food and sell it at a minimal profit (which goes into the Club's general revenue).
Each family is expected to volunteer 2 days (or more if you can). The volunteer hours in the kitchen are the same as your child’s training, so you can board the Skyride with the racers on the early tram, and then meet them at the base at the end of their training day.
The schedule is still somewhat fluid and will change a bit in response to program needs. On busy home-mountain race days we are planning to have two shifts to keep your time commitment reasonable.
If you enjoy kitchen volunteering and wouldn't mind doing more than the usual two days per season, please consider adding your name to our on-call list. When kitchen staffing levels are low, we will ask our on-call volunteers if they can fill in (usually with a couple of days notice). Indicate your willingness to be on the on-call list when filling out the volunteer form, or email Gwendolyn at Much appreciated!
We like to encourage our athletes to follow good housekeeping rules in the cabin. As a parent, please support this by role modeling and reminding our athletes to clean up after themselves. We leave the cabin at the end of the day as we found it, OR CLEANER.
We are looking forward to this season, working with all of you to supply nourishment to our young athletes!!!
Again, here is the kitchen schedule, and the signup form.
Please read the Lead kitchen duties and General kitchen duties before coming up (descriptions were updated Feb 7, 2020). Thanks!
