It's not over till it's over!!!!
I don't know what you think but this season has gone by way too fast! We still have snow and there's more in the forecast. Even though our regular season is officially over we still have some red jackets heading out to post season races. Lets take a moment to wish them good luck.
This past weekend was an incredible display of the talent we have in our club. Our Club Championship races were exciting, intense and a pleasure to witness. All of our athletes did a great job! Our Champions have been crowned for another year and everyone has had an opportunity to celebrate. For the full results visit our results page at jwracers.ca
Now we would like to say a few thank-you's.
To the parents who have faithfully trucked your kids to the hill every weekend. You truly are the kids biggest sponsor!
To the racers who not only showed up and skied their hearts out, but have represented the Jozo Club and Blue Mountain very well. You do us proud!
To our sponsors who make everything we do possible. We are so blessed to have you with us and value the partnerships we have developed. We wear your logo's with pride!
And to the volunteers who make our club what it is. Our board, our team managers, and all the parents who stood on the hill, recorded times, announced, ran coats, collected bibs or helped in any way at the races. It is the dedication of everyone that enables our program to flourish and our races to run.
Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you!!!!!!!
Some fun Facts about our Jozo Weider Web Site:
The Jozo Weider Alpine Racing Team has grown and progressed leaps and bounds over the last few years. A major contributing factor has been in improving communications with our members. The JWRacers web site has become the go to location for information about our club. Martin Bellemare must be given full credit for the slick and professional look and the easy navigation of the site. Martin spends countless volunteer hours maintaining the site, crucial for all of us to stay informed. Here are a few interesting statistics gathered from the first of December until the end of February:
• There have been over 8,200 site visits
• Those visits viewed over 28,000 pages
• Most site visits are from Canada (95%), but the site had visits from other countries including USA, Russia, UK, Jamaica, Mexico, Turkey, China, and Switzerland
• Sections in order of popularity:
Buy and Sell
Photos / Videos (FYI – if you haven’t visited the video page this year’s banquet video is now loaded as well as videos from years past)
If there is anyone in your household who has an interest in coaching, there are several courses being offered. You can find more information using the following link: https://www.canskicoach.org/en/entry-level-courses
I'm sure Rob Crossan whould be interested in talking to anyone who completes them!!!!
