Our Volunteers

We volunteer because we know what it takes to put on a race for our kids; it takes many of us to hold a successful, safe and fun race and this weekend’s race was exactly that… successful, safe and fun! As we all know, it’s sometimes hard to volunteer when we want to watch our kids race but its necessary for us to do our share.
We had a great turnout this weekend and it’s a testament to what great people we have in our race community. We hope you had some fun too!

Big White Ski Club thanks all of you for jumping in not only at this past U12 race but other races we hosted throughout the season.

Dear Big White Ski Club Parents,
 
This U12 Invitational race is the last race of the season at Big White, the last race of the season where we need volunteers.  Thank you to those who have signed up.

As a member of the Big White Ski Club each of us is required to volunteer at as many events as possible, we require your involvement so that we are able to host top notch events and to ensure the safety of our athletes. Volunteering for a race is simple as there are many different “jobs” that you can do that do not need any ski racing experience to do.

Don’t be shy, please click this link to sign up:  http://signup.com/go/QJOvDiQ

Here’s where we need coverage; we can’t run a race without them! 

  • Assistant Starter* – Sat & Sun, no experience necessary, get the kids in place for their run!
  • Gate Judges – Sat & Sun, no experience necessary, a fun way to see your child’s run!
  • Hand Timers/Recorders – Sat & Sun, Start & Finish – again, you get to see your child at the start to wish them a good run or finish to say they had a great run!   

    I strongly urge you to step up and get involved as you will gain a whole new appreciation for ski racing and how good of a skier your child has become.

    Thanks for your support.

    John McMillan
    President
