FIS Commendation of Excellence for TSRC

TSRC has been awarded a certificate of excellence from Peter Gerdol, the FIS Continental Cup Supervisor on behalf of FIS. This certificate recognises our outstanding organisation of the 2017 Australia NZ Continental Cup series we hosted last August. (I have attached the certificate below.) These accolades are not handed out often( indeed, I don’t think in 16 years I have seen one) so TSRC and its Race Organising Committee, BJ and Richard, KT, and our timer extraordinaire Bob Morris should be rightly proud. Running this event depended on a motivated and capable team of, volunteers, parents and athletes. Our child athletes popped in and out of the course as slippers during their training so should also be congratulated for their part in the overall series’ success.  It was both educational and inspirational for them to watch extremely high calibre athletes in action. There were many levels of assistance from a multitude of people- on hill, set up and through race week, office preparations, liaison with  many coaches and international athletes, liaison with TDs, ticketing, tuning space procurement, accommodation, catering, awards, as well as the actual Captains meetings and races themselves. On behalf of the TSRC 2017 team I would like to thank all those involved. Felicity Bidencope Certificate FIS  ...

NOTICE OF 2018 TSRC AGM and GUESTS TSRC  will hold its AGM at 10 am on Sunday 6th May, 2015 at Norths Leagues Club, Abbott Street, Cammeray, North Sydney.  The TSRC committee invites ALL its members ( both new and already existing) to join us on the date above. We will be having  our usual AGM, office bearer elections and uniform sale following the meeting. I am delighted to introduce two special guests, Mick Branch and Adam Hosie to our AGM this year. This year is the first year that the Australian ski racing community will be operating within the new SSA Alpine and Skiercross strategic map  published in February 2018. Please find link as follows if you have not yet read this carefully to do so. https://s3-ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/piano.revolutionise.com.au/site/hv3jlymy3flscyep.pdf Mick Branch, the SSA National Alpine Director  will join us to give our membership further information about this programme, and answer questions from the floor. It is vitally important that all  involved in Australian ski racing understand the rationale and ramifications of this plan, developed to create “champions” , and to develop our junior racers’ skill development which is integral for future skiing excellence and success. Adam Hosie, Director of Thredbo Ski School will also be joining us. We are absolutely dependent on the Thredbo resort and its management for our continued operation and appreciate all the efforts at many levels this organisation provides. We continue to work closely with KT to achieve  best possible training outcomes for our athletes. With Adam  joining us, it is an ideal opportunity for “cross fertilisation” of ideas and discussions, so I thank Adam very much for his assistance...

Season’s greetings

On behalf of the TSRC committee I would like to wish all our members, their families, and our extended network of alpine skiing friends a safe Happy Christmas and  New Year. I was imagining a globe with pins in it locating all our whereabouts. It would look like a porcupine as we are all spread so wide and far. Good luck with all your racing and training exploits, some of you are already in the gates and making some good results, and have fun. I hope everyone gets their fix of light and fluffy powder snow....
