Help needed!

BMRC is a volunteer lead organization, and for us to run safe and enjoyable races for our kids, we need you to help!  Your volunteer commitment can be met in many ways – there are a few positions that require certification.  If you are interested in becoming an official as a referee (start/finish), helping out with timing (best seat on the hill), or supporting as the Race Administrator (race coordination), please consider signing up for the officials clinics this fall and/or talk to a board member.  We will be at the picnic to answer questions as well!

NYSSRA athletes invited to Killington World Cup Parade of Athletes, Sunday Nov. 26, 2017

This year, NYSSRA athletes (and other state’s athletes) are being invited to participate in the Parade of Athletes at the Killington World Cup on Sunday Nov. 26.  This is an exciting opportunity for NYSSRA to show its support for US Ski Team athletes and the other World Cup athletes from around the world.  We will be sending out more info about the parade meeting place and other details soon. As part of this opportunity, NYSSRA is making custom hats and neck warmers for our athletes to show that they are part of NYSSRA.  Below is the mock up of the hats which are a custom design and only available to NYSSRA members.  These are high quality hats and neck warmers and besides being affordable, they are just plain cool.   If you are planning on attending the World Cup (everyone should be going) please order your hats or neck warmers soon.  The quantities are limited and we will begin shipping as soon as they arrive in early November. Hats – $30, Neck Warmers $17 or $20, plus $3 shipping per item.

BMRC EQUIPMENT NIGHTS – At The Ski Company

The BMRC coaching Staff will be at The Ski Company in Henrietta to assist you with equipment choices on Monday September 18th and Wednesday the 20th from 5pm-9pm.

All BMRC athletes are encouraged to come on those nights to select the proper gear for the upcoming season. We will be boot fitting, sizing up the right skis and making sure you are in the correct bindings. Each night from 8-9 the tuning shop will be open for a tour and a description of race tuning they are capable of providing.

We look forward to seeing you there to ensure you are on the correct equipment.

Both new and used will be available.

Winter is Coming!!

Help Needed for High School Sectionals and States

Bristol Mountain is hosting the High School Sectionals and States, 2/14-2/15 and 2/27-2/28. Section V has invited BMRC to staff all four days with timers and gatekeepers as a fundraiser. We have an opportunity to highlight our club, recruit future members and raise up to $2,000. This is a great way to support these outstanding athletes – many who also compete in Easterns. If you can volunteer, please email Sharon Lonthair, adsl@msn.com (the sooner the better!) with your available days and times. Will you be there for your own athlete? Then volunteer for the morning or afternoon. If we get enough volunteers we will split the shifts. On behalf of all of the club leadership and these athletes – thank you!

Gatekeepers needed for Saturday and Sunday!

We are looking forward to a modified U16/U19 SG Race this weekend. In order for the race to run smoothly, we are still in need of gatekeepers, timers and course crew for Saturday and Sunday. Currently, we have no gatekeepers for Saturday (PM race only) or Sunday (AM and PM races). Trying to fill these slots on race day can delay start times. Please take time today to signup for Saturday or Sunday or for one of the future races with openings still. There are still many parent volunteers with less than 3 activities toward the parent volunteer commitment. Thank you. If you have questions email/call Sharon, srldar@rit.edu, 585-703-5834.
