Ski 4 Kids with Cancer update from Glenn Geary

Time: 8:00AM Sunday, June 12th

Hi Guys

Just to bring you up to speed with the Ski 4 Kids with Cancer 2011

I have spoken to Kerry Eagle who is happy that we name the outright single skier events the Peter Eagle trophy, We will have a Men’s and Women’s Plaque, I will need to know if there is any interest in any under 16’s single skiers (boys and girls)

Hogs Breath Cafe Newcastle has been confirmed as the finish line. Our
problem last year was getting fed and watered, (this year we will have our own bar and a fixed menu so shouldn’t be any delays)

In case in inclement weather on the 12th June, I will have an aquatic license for the 2 following Sundays 19th and 26th June

We will be limited to 50 Vessels competing in the event (for the obvious logistic and safety precautions), so please get your entries in to avoid disappointment, Due to the success of last year and the Catalina and World titles not long after the event there has been a lot of interest from crews wanting to use this as a training run

We will also be having prizes for the highest fundraising teams, one popular suggestion is to sponsor the skiers per Kilometre Skied, (20 cents a kilometre is $24)

Don’t forget as much as this is a fun event and a great day out I will be unashamedly trying to extract as much needed funds to support HMRI and their research into childhood cancers last year we raised 3k this year who know?

I am also looking for volunteers to assist on the day; at least 2 course boats are required to follow the fleet 120km up to Newcastle, 1 for the Paramedic and safety equipment and also safety boats, if you can help out in any way please contact me on the numbers below

For the Teams who competed last year once again a very heartfelt thank you and any suggestions on how to improve this year would be very much appreciated please feel free to contact me anytime on the numbers below.

Have a Great weekend
