Good evening Club members, parents and volunteers:
It was a wonderful weekend of racing at Poley Mountain. Who would have thought that just a few days ago we would be hosting a successful ski race after being bombarded with so much rain?
I am so proud that all of you from the time we said go pitched in and gave it your 100%. Thank you very much for volunteering your time. There are so many things happening all at once by so many people that often we don’t even realize how many people it takes. From collecting bibs, marking down times, bringing food, to course crew, every job is key. Many of you were fulfilling roles that you have never done before or even knew existed and pulled it off like a pro.
You as a club have set the bar high for the rest of the races to come this year. You should be very proud of your accomplishment. You were successful in running two slaloms against all odds and running 340 athletes through four courses each day. Success, Success!!
I tried to thank a lot of you personally but I know that I missed many of you. So from the bottom of my heart, “ THANK YOU”. Go team Poley!
I hope that you have awarded yourself some time with your feet up and a hot cup of tea this evening. You deserve it!
Chief of Race
