The Club got a fresh coat of paint and some maintenance love on Sunday. Thanks to Bruce Bentley, Rich Westburg, Mike Roussel, Bret Williamson, Aiden Williamson, Chris Smid, Cadish Smid, Elliott Smid, Andy Alexender, Dave Ferraro, Alden Franzoni and Barry Cupoli for taking time out of their weekend to do work on the Club.
Please thank these volunteers next time you see them and consider helping out on the next work day. Before you know it we will be on the slopes!!!
The Social Committee would like to extend our thanks to the following racers for their great job in cleaning the club this past Saturday afternoon in preparation for the social event. The club looked great!!
Hopefully we have not missed anyone, however we apologize if we did. Thank you!
Winter has finally arrived and I’m happy to report we are beginning to see the trail count numbers grow at Pico. We are particularly grateful for snow on B-Slope for our Alpine Racing Program.
I’d like to provide a short report of recent highlights; past, present and upcoming in an effort to help keep all informed.
On behalf of the entire PSC coaching staff, I would like to congratulate Sami Rubin and her coach Chris Reynolds on her selection as the 2014 recipient of the Betty Clayton Award.
The Betty Clayton Award is one of six Vermont Alpine Racing Association (VARA) Merit Awards given annually to deserving VARA athletes. This award is presented to a U21-U16 level athlete who has attained top results while participating in a club program. The selected athlete receives a $1,000 scholarship.
Sami will be presented with this award at the VARA Gala on November 8th at the Equinox Resort in Manchester, Vermont.
Sami has been a top MVC racer over the years and this season proved to be no different. Sami produced great results in her first year racing as a U18. The U18-U21 racing circuit has a rigorous schedule that includes state, regional and national events. The U18-U21 circuit includes two season-long series, the Vermont Cup Series and the George Tormey Series, as well as a State Championship Series. These series are typically dominated by academy, collegiate and national caliber athletes. Sami's results are very impressive given that she is a club level athlete who is challenged with balancing school, training and racing and limited access to midweek training.
