Summer - how to turn off your pilot light
and other information for the fall
We have updated our website to now provide substantially more information on the operation of the fireplace, including pictures. The quick link to the applicable webpage is HERE.
We are pleased to advise that a 'community herb planter' is available and ready for all to use and enjoy.
The planter is the large red one at the top of the 175 driveway, adjacent to the sidewalk. Also, there is a tomato plant a small wicker pot. Tags in the planter identify the plantings.
We thank Kevin and the Landscaping Committee for arranging this additional amenity for residents.
The Crossbow Annual General meeting will be held in person at Solara Resort & Spa (187 Kananaskis Way). The AGM scheduled for April 29, 2023 at 11:30 am with sign in starting at 11:00 am. The AGM is followed by the Crossbow Point Annual Committee Meeting (ACM) at 12:30. An AGM package has been sent to all owners by email or by mail for those that have not signed up for email correspondence.
As there is limited street parking on Kananaskis Way, we recommend that attendees either take the Roam transit bus or car pool.
If you are unable to attend in person, we do ask that you return a proxy to help achieve quorum. A copy of the Annual Committee meeting package has been sent to all owners.
Owners who wish to serve on the Board of Directors for either Landing or Point will be required to submit a Board Volunteer form (included in package). This form needs to be returned to PEKA no later than April 14. Owners who volunteer for the Board will not be giving a presentation during the meeting, so we do ask that you fill out the form with all pertinent information. The submitted forms will be circulated to all owners on or before April 18.
A question form has also been included. We ask that all questions be submitted no later than April 24. This will allow the respective Boards time to respond in advance of the meeting.
Board elections will only be held if there are more than 5 volunteers per side (Landing or Point). Voting for the Board if applicable, will be done by ballot.
Notice from PEKA:
Good afternoon Owners,
The Crossbow Point Board of Directors has retained the services of Banff Plumbing to complete a full drain stack cleaning in both 155 and 175. This work will all be done in the parkade, and unit access is not required. The plumbers have scheduled the work for 2 days per building between 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Vehicles will need to be removed for the duration of this work to help facilitate the work being completed. Please have vehicles moved by 8:00 a.m. on both days.
Building 155 has been scheduled for April 3 & 4. If they do not require the full 2 days, we will let owners know.
Building 175 has been scheduled for April 5 & 7. Again, if they do not require the full 2 days, we will let owners know.
Efficient Parkade Cleaning will be on site to clean the parkades on April 19 (155) & 20 (175). Vehicles will need to be removed on these days as well. An additional email will be sent out as a reminder.
If you have private tenants, please share this information with them. If your unit is managed by the PEKA rental team, those tenants will be notified on your behalf.

Recently a relatively minor flood was experienced in the 175 building due to a severely clogged common drain coming from the kitchen area plumbing stack.
The blockage was quite significant and required disassembly of some common plumbing lines. The cause of the blockage appeared to be due to someone regularly disposing of what appeared to be coffee grounds, down the drain.
Please never dispose of grounds, grains, nor any form of grease down the drains, including the garbage disposal. Such disposal, whether using the drain directly or using a garbage disposal unit,virtually guarantees that a blockage will eventually occur and worse, may result in physical damage to another unit and much disruption to occupants. Further, this can give rise, in a severe case, to tens of thousands of $ of damage and insurance claims, for which we can all end up paying for if fault cannot be attributed. In a clear and known at fault situation, substantial to all costs will be for the account of the owner of the offending unit.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Your volunteer Board of Directors,
David, Lawrence, Rob, Ron D. and Ron S.
175 Building: The rack for this building has long been located in an impractical location, directly adjacent to the most eastward visitor parking stall.
155 Building: The bike rack will remain in its current location.
KEY LOCK BOXES (155 and 175 buildings)
Problem: Owners/tenants and real estate agents have traditionally used the bicycle racks to attach and lock the shackle of their ‘key lock box’. The number of these lock boxes has grown in number, provides a somewhat unsightly appearance, and can make it difficult to lock up a bicycle.
•Solution: A ‘lock bar’ will be installed in the alcove area of the 175 garage driveway (at the bottom of the driveway). The lock bar provides a dedicated device to accommodate personal key lock boxes for both the 155 and 175 buildings. The lock bar installation is scheduled to occur on or about Wednesday, September 21, 2022.
Actions request: if you have a key lock box attached to any of our bicycle racks, please relocate it to the lock bar as described above. It is understood that with absences from the property, it may take some time for the lock boxes to be removed and installed in the new location. We do not intend to cut off any lock boxes until we have provided ample opportunity, with multiple notices/reminders, to relocate lock boxes. Following such notices, any remaining lock boxes will be cut off and removed from the bicycle racks.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation in working through these changes in support of our Crossbow Point community. Any comments may be submitted to the Board at firstname.lastname@example.org
Your volunteer Board of Directors,
David, Ron D., Rob, Lawrence and Ron S.
We regret having to plan the closure of this facility from Sept 6, 2022 to possibly month-end.
While we were able to defer maintenance work over the summer, respecting the higher useage period by owners/tenants, we now need to take advantage of the fall 'shoulder season' to complete various maintenance work. This includes tile replacements, painting of the pool, and specified mechanical work on the pool infrastructure.
The pool and hot tub will be drained on Monday evening in preparation for the work. We hope to have these amenities up and running again by the end of the month.
We appreciate and thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Your volunteer Board,
David, Ron D., Rob, Lawrence and Ron S.

It’s time for our (once annual, but COVID interrupted) SUMMER SOLSTICE PARTY when we invite our Crossbow Landing Neighbours to join us is celebrating the arrival of Summer.
This is an outdoor event to be held at the end of the driveway between the Point and the Landing and is open to Crossbow residents and their guests. In the case of inclement weather, the party will be held in the Crossbow Point great room. In this case, the attendance will be limited and we ask that the number of guests should not be more than 2 per unit.
Live music will be provided by the very popular Charlie Butler. You can bring your own refreshments and you may want to bring a lawn chair. We ask that you label your drink bottles. Coolers and ice will be provided.
This free event is sponsored by your Social Committee but everyone is invited to bring a cash donation. See below for details.
Looking forward to an awesome Summer,
Crossbow Point Social Committee
Michelle Fuller is a modern-day hero for many of us. Throughout her six cancer journeys, over many years, she has exhibited a zest and gratitude for life, as well as a commitment to and compassion for others. After her last cancer diagnosis, Esther and Ron Davies set up a most successful Go Fund Me account. The goal of this endeavour was to provide extra funds to help with costs for travel and accommodation expenses incurred for medical appointments, etc. With the extra money, Henri will be able to take time off work to provide post surgery support to Michelle.
Michelle’s latest operation was in late April. Her path to recovery will be challenging. We know that financial assistance will help reduce their stress levels in this difficult time.
At our Summer Solstice party, we are encouraging anyone who has not contributed to the Michelle Fuller Go Fund Me project to donate. Some may wish to enclose some cash or a cheque in a Get Well card for Michelle. Others may wish to donate anonymously. We have discovered that even the smallest of donations add up quickly so please consider giving even a very modest amount.
Thanks so much for your consideration in this matter. This is a most worthy cause for a truly remarkable person!
Note: Contributions can be dropped into the Donation Box at the Party
