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.

Friday Cancelled, but Bristol SG Races Are ON This Weekend

Bristol SG races are on! Please see the updated format below and register your athlete. If you signed up to volunteer Friday, Saturday or Sunday, we will still need volunteers for all three days to prepare the hill. Watch for more email announcements.

Empire Cup SG races confirmed for this weekend (U16, U19, U21)

Obviously the weather has not been cooperating once again. After discussions with both Gore and Bristol we have confirmed that the SG races at BOTH locations are confirmed for this weekend with a slight modification at Bristol.

Gore will hold the planned SG free skiing day on Friday, followed by SG races on Saturday and Sunday. They plan to hold 2 SG races each day, ONLY the first SG each day will be used for Empire State Winter Games qualifying.

Bristol will not be able to hold the SG free skiing day on Friday. Instead they will have SG free skiing on Saturday morning with a race on Saturday afternoon. Then, they will plan to hold 2 SG races on Sunday. The SG race on Saturday and the first SG race on Sunday will be used for Empire State Winter Games qualifying.

A modified Bristol program will be available on the NYSSRA web site under schedules later this afternoon. Registration for both locations is via AdminSkiRacing.com.

Volunteers for U12/U14 Flight Speed Camp

Update: Our slate of volunteers is shaping up nicely for Sunday’s Flight Speed Camp, let’s hope the weather will do so also to maintain the hill. We are still in need of three volunteers for course crew. Please add your name to the spreadsheet. To get the camp off smoothly – fencing must be put up on Comet on Saturday. Please meet Jeff at the lift at 10 a.m. for that project. If you have questions, please call/email Sharon Lonthair, 585-703-5834.


Thank you to all of the parents, volunteers and athletes for helping to make this past Sunday’s council race at Bristol Mountain a success. Sunday, 1/22 we will host another event, the U12/U14 Flight Speed Camp. There are still several volunteer openings. Please sign up on the spreadsheet as soon as able. While we had sufficient volunteers this past Sunday, we had to cover some openings the morning of the race. Help us avoid last minute shuffling and sign up early. Remember the club commitment is three race/camp events during a season. If you have questions, call/email Sharon Lonthair, 585-703-5834.

Welcome to the 2016-17 Season!

Hello parents and racers, and welcome to the 2016-17 Season!

With the weather finally changing and things starting to look a bit more like winter it won’t be long so we wanted to touch base with a few quick updates:

  1. BMRC will officially start training on the weekend of Dec 10-11 assuming that Bristol is open. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to get out and play up in VT, the Adirondacks, or out west if you can and keep praying for snow!
  2. We’ve been scrubbing our new email/notification system and notice that there are still a number of people/families missing from the lists or on the wrong lists. If everyone could please take a moment or two to verify that you have signed up for notifications it will save us all a lot of time and confusion once things get rolling.
  3. In the next few days there will be a couple of email notifications going out to specific groups that need your attention – please review and respond as necessary so we can get things tidied up prior to going on snow.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Jeff Jenkins and the entire BMRC coaching staff
