Tim Drake
Osler Bluff Ski Club

Tim received more nominations than any other finalists!!

Tim is in the process of obtaining his Level III Officials and helps at all ski races no matter what location. He is a wonderful ambassador of the sport; he works hard to get to know the racers and truly amplifies what it takes to be a volunteer.

We are lucky to have him in our province.

Kara McIntosh,
Craigleith Ski Club

Kara volunteers at every single race her daughter is in and more! She is out there slipping the course in rain, cold or shine and has taken one a big role with the NZ foundation events for many years. Kara encourages other parents to volunteer by sending direct emails to the teams and asking them to contribute. She will also do any job – slip, crew, race office or gatekeeper.

Russell Gee (Rusty)
Devil’s Glen Country Club

Rusty is passionate about ski racing, and especially about hosting the best possible races at Devil’s Glen. Rusty (age 85) has taken on the role of Race Chairman for every big race at DG for more years than anyone can remember – he has been a ski racing volunteer for over 40 years, long after his two daughters stopped competing. He invests countless hours in the details of each race and cares deeply about the quality of the experience for both athletes and volunteers.

At 85, he is just as dedicated to the sport as he was 40 years ago.  Rusty is passionate about the sport of ski racing and is a wonderful ambassador for our sport.

Phillipe Richer,
Camp Fortune Ski Club

Philippe is our volunteer recruiter extraordinaire. He is the reason CFSC has over 200 registered officials in a club with little more than 200 members! He works tirelessly recruiting enthusiastically for all races – from NG to NORAMS.

He sits on the CFSC’s Board and is a friendly and helpful guy who is bringing volunteerism to the forefront.  He comes up with hands-on training for parents to demystify everything from hand timing to course crew to gate judging.  This has led to a surge of new volunteers, who are better prepared and more confident in their duties.  This results in a safer, more efficient, more fun and fair race for athletes of all levels.
