Sporting Advice

Here we are again - cold, snowy and exciting. Winter came so suddenly and early that the lucky ones got a bonus pre-season weekend of fine weather and fun skiing.
The attached 2012 Winter Newsletter has news, information about events and activities and introduces some new initiatives.
But first it announces that the on-line entry system for a series of Perisher Valley XC events is up and running.
Thanks to all involved for the support that has been provided over the summer at work parties and through donations of time, material and funds.
The Nordic Shelter is warmer for new windows and cladding. And the new snow fences have been filled and farmed already.
Looks like a good winter ahead. We hope you all get a chance to enjoy it.
Cheers, Peter
