Welcome to the 2017/2018 Ski Season

The club is looking for a few volunteers to make the skiing as good as it can be.
Groomers: We are looking to expand our stable of trail groomers, who help groom and track set the trails using club snowmobiles and grooming equipment. Interested people should be fit (grooming is a very physical endeavor!), familiar with both classic and skate ski styles and preferably experienced with snowmobile operation. Having some free time in the evenings would also be an asset. The more volunteers we get, the less work it will be for each one. If you’re interested, email Dave Steer at email@example.com.
JackRabbit Head Coach: This position allows you to get out on the trails on Saturday afternoons to coach small groups of children between 5 and 12 years of age, while all the administrative work of the JackRabbit program is done by someone else. Good technique in the classic and skating styles would be an asset. If you’re interested, contact Kevin McDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Club Championships Organizer: The name says it all. We need someone to organize the club championship races, which are held toward the end of the skiing season each year with typically 50 entrants. The organizer ensures that the course is prepared and finds volunteers to act as marshals, starters, timers and so on. If you’re interested, email Bob Donders at email@example.com.
