2015 TSRC AGM and uniform sale

2015 TSRC AGM and uniform sale

This is an opportunity for all members to hear a report from your Committee about the previous year and our plans for the forthcoming year. It is also a forum for members to express their opinions and ideas and have their questions answered. An important function of the AGM is to formally reelect the Committee. Following the AGM Justin Punch and Jamie Neill will be available to spend some time with new members to help explain the ins and outs of training with the TSRC. Everyone is welcome, so please come along, meet other members, meet the Committee and have your say. After the AGM we will be holding a uniform and second hand sale at Jo McKenzie’s home at 7 Cross Street, Mosman at 12 midday onwards. If you have second hand gear please bring it along, but you shall have to stay to look after it. Payment by cash or cheque please as we are uncertain re credit card facilities at this stage. There will also be sausages on the BBQ! If you have any queries, please contact Fiona Cobcroft on nfcobcroft@bigpond.com or 0416119003 or look at the Event post under the News...

Book your place at the forthcoming Alpine Officials Course

Hi NSW Alpine Athlete/Parent/Supporter Attached is a flyer detailing the upcoming Alpine Officials Course Level 1 the first of which will be conducted on Tues 19th May at The Scots College, Victoria Rd, Bellevue Hill in Sydney. Coffee/tea and sandwiches will be provided during the evening. The course will be repeated in Jindabyne in June with a date to be confirmed shortly. This is a perfect opportunity for those who would like to volunteer at Interschools events this season and for those wanting to assist at Club, Childrens Series and FIS races this season. Scott Sanderson from NAC will be presenting the course again this year – with his many years coaching experience both at junior and FIS level both at Mt Hotham Race Club and in Europe and North America with Australian national teams Scott is well placed to bring volunteers up to speed on current rules and provide practical tips to make your participation as an alpine official both worthwhile and enjoyable. Even if you have attended previously there is always something new that crops up each season – Scott’s presentation skills will make for an informative, worthwhile and enjoyable evening. This course is accredited by Ski and Snowboard Australia and the National Alpine Committee and certificates will be awarded on completion of the course. We look forward to seeing you there. If you plan on attending either course (Sydney or Jindabyne) please advise as per the details below.

Lavinia Chrystal competes at Sochi Olympics

Lavinia began training with the TSRC when she was an 11 year old, after having been skiing for over 6 years. Tenacious, ambitious and focused, Lavinia’s Olympic dream was realized last year when she was selected to compete at Sochi. Along with Greta Small and Emily Bamford, Lavinia was one of three women selected. She competed in the Slalom and Giant Slalom events, achieving a respectable 32nd and 40th respectively.
