March Madness Membership Drive

Thank you to all members who have helped out in spreading the word about the Club and encouraged their friends, neighbours etc. to join! We will be announcing our new members (officially) in next week's Knotmeter, so if you know someone who may be interested, please tell them to come in and talk to Greg!

During the month of March we are asking members to reach out to their friends, family, neighbours, work colleagues or anyone else you may think would be interested in joining KYC.

We are calling it "ONE FOR ONE." It is our hope that every member brings down someone to the Club during March for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, one of our TGIF's or Club events! If that individual decides to JOIN KYC for this year the Sponsor (you) will be entered in a draw for a free 2017 membership! 

Please do not hesitate to contact Greg McNab or by phone 613.548.3052 for more information or to set up a time so Greg can meet your guest and tell them more about the Club and our programs! 

We also encourage all members to stop by for an appetizer, lunch or dinner! We have great daily specials which you can find on the website! Also do not forget about our Tuesday wine and apps specials or our Wednesday/Thursday Burger and Beer Specials! 

We hope to see you soon!
