A very big congratulations to everyone for the outstanding weekend of racing at National Children’s champs.
On behalf of all TSRC athletes and parents, I would like to send a huge thank you to Trent and all the coaches, Joe, Maurizio, Federico, Alex, Emily, Jules, Stuart, Jeremy and Paulo for their hard work throughout the season. It was very evident that TSRC athletes were all racing at 110% backed up by “110% coaching”. I hope you’ve all enjoyed your 2014 season at TSRC and seeing you again in 2015.
We must thank KT for their assistance preparing and providing us a great training and racing hill.
I had several people approach me at Perisher this past weekend to compliment TSRC athletes on their performance, behaviour and support for each other. On behalf of the committee I congratulate you on your achievements on the race hill, but more importantly on the sportsmanship demonstrated in the way you behaved and the way you supported your team mates . This is what being a TSRC athlete is all about.
Thanks also to BJ ( and sidekick Richard Davis) for much behind the scenes preparation, Trent’s organisation-nothing left to chance,everything was always planned for you to optimise your training and racing, and our office “fairy” Michele Tomasi. Other committee members are responsible for various other functions to make the club run smoothly and I convey a thank you to them all on your behalf as well as to our band of volunteers.
Most importantly the next few days might be your last days in Thredbo this year. Please empty your lockers and wipe out their bases. All the lockers ( upstairs and down) need to be emptied by the long weekend in October and the club will be locked up for the summer. Any gear remaining will be given to the local wombats.
Kids- very importantly, make sure you give your parents a big hug and a huge thank you for supporting you to be part of TSRC and ski racing. You are indeed a very lucky crew so make sure you let your parents know you appreciate it.
Parents- what a great crowd you are, it’s been an absolute pleasure this year to work with you all.
Good luck for those of you racing in the National Interschools this weekend, the final event for the season. ( My last Interschools race after 13 years! Anne Maree and Tim Casey hold the record I believe and they’ve got another year to go. There could be some of you who will supersede their total before you graduate.)
Have an enjoyable and safe summer ( or northern winter). Keep in touch and I look forward to seeing you all again for our 2015 season.
