Woodstock Ski Runners 2018-19 Alpine Work Obligation

Engaged, supportive parents are a crucial element of any youth activity, and that is especially true of ski racing. Ski Runners cannot host events at Suicide Six without contributions from our members. If you’ve never done it before, don’t worry! We’ll teach you what to do. You get to truly feel like you are part of the race and you enjoy a great catered lunch for the race workers. It’s fun!

Ski Runners and Suicide Six are known for hosting efficient, fun races, and we need your help to continue that for 2018-19. Races at Suicide Six are a major home-court advantage for our kids, and the revenue earned through race registration fees help keep our program costs low. Member participation on and off the hill fosters better relationships – and ultimately, a stronger competition community.

Ski Runners needs approximately 20 parent workers for each event. Examples of parent worker “jobs” are gate keeping, timing, registration, the scoreboard, and making lunch (costs reimbursed by WSR, of course.)

Each one of our alpine race groups has at least one home event for 2018-19. Our parents are required to work their child’s “home” race. By late December, we will communicate the tentative worker lists for each race in an effort to seek confirmation. If you cannot work your child’s race, you can consult the master schedule and work a different one.

This policy is in keeping with virtually all other alpine competition programs across the US.

Thank you!
