The Children's Tax Credit is an initiative put forth by the Government

Below are the instructions (also available from the above link) for
filling out the form.

Calculating eligible fees:
Registration and membership costs can include the costs of
administration, instruction and the rental of facilities. If the fees
charged to parents include part for accommodation, travel, food, or
beverages then this part must be deducted when calculating the part of the
fees that qualify for the tax credit. For example if club membership fees
total $400 and includes a charge of $50 for travel and $50 for a club
uniform then the eligible amount would be $400 - $50 - $50 = $300.

OTTAWA – Athletics Canada cordially invites you to take part in the
first annual Spikes and Clubs charity golf tournament October 1st 2007 in
Toronto. The tournament takes place at the exclusive Ladies Golf Club of
Toronto in Thornhill, ON.
The golf tournament serves as a fundraiser to support Youth Development
Programs – funding the next generation of track and field stars. All
proceeds will be directed to offset and eventually eliminate the costs
associated with self funded teams as well as supporting grassroots
programs which combat child obesity and inactivity. Certain national teams
require athletes to pay a portion of the costs due to budget restrictions
- other countries have opted to cut these teams altogether.
A component of the event will be a silent auction featuring a trip to
Panorama, BC brought to you by Boulevard Travel. The trip includes a one
week stay (7days 6 nights) in a 5 bedroom 3 bathroom log cabin situated on
a golf course. Other items available will be:

Felicien and Gary Reed
- National team jacket signed by the Canadian World Championship team
- Autographed Toronto Raptors basketball

The Ladies Golf Club of Toronto was established by Canadian Sports Hall
of Famer Ada Mackenzie and designed by well-known course architect Stanley
Thompson in 1924. In 1936 the lady’s golf club opened its doors inviting
men as guests, however today it remains to be the only golf club in
America owned and operated solely by women.
There are still limited 4-somes available for this exclusive event
which also includes dinner and a unique registration kit. Contact
