2014 Feedback Survey

Good morning TSRC Members and Parents,   Thredbo Ski Race Club is conducting a survey to gather your feedback from the 2014 season and suggestions for 2015. We feel it is very important to gather this “post season” information to assist us with our planning. We don’t always hear from everyone involved when we are in Thredbo as it is fairly hectic. We request that ALL parents AND athletes  complete the survey. We look forward to hearing ALL your comments, positives and negatives so that we can continue the “good” and address any less favourable concerns but we need a measured baseline from which to plan.   This is a quick 12 question survey – your response would be greatly appreciated. The survey must be completed by next Thursday, 6th November.   Please follow this link https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TSRCsurvey   This survey is confidential. Individual responses are anonymous, and any comments you wish to provide will only be read by Felicity and Damian, and then compiled into general feedback for the committee. If you have any technical problems contact Damian on dhuon@huonit.com.au ( not Felicity as I’m less IT literate than you all are!)   Thanks for your participation! Kind regards, Felicity Bidencope and Damian Huon TSRC...
