The Wingers and Wheelers begin their journey to the 2018 Paralympic Games

The four aspiring Paralympians - Emily, Lindsey, Andy and Ethan - thank all those who attended the launch party and thank everyone who donated to their travel fund.  The road to the Paralympics begins with travelling to IPC World Cup Races to show everyone that they are competitive with the best in the world.  Once they have done enough races to prove not only their competitiveness but also their commitment, only then does Cross Country Canada begin supporting them and covering their race travel expenses.  These future Paralympians have received encouragement from the National Team coaches that they have what it takes to be at South Korea in 2018.  So their journey has begun.  

Coach Tony presents the athletes with their BC Team uniforms.  Next stop Canada Winter Games!

Para-Nordic Committee needs you!

The Nordic Racers Ski Club is considered the premier Para-Nordic club in the country.  In 2010, 5 of the 17 members representing Canada the Paralympic Winter Games were from the Nordic Racers Ski Club!  Now a new generation of Para-Nordic racers from your ski club is training for the 2018 Paralympics.  We hope to send 4 athletes to South Korea!  

Behind the scenes we have a very industrious Para-Nordic Committee who help make things happen.  These are the people who apply for grants and then administer how the funds are best spent to support all our Para-Nordic activities.  Unfortunately four committee members have moved away or had a lifestyle change that are keeping them from contributing to this year's committee.

If you are interested in supporting our Para-Nordic athletes and programs we would like to hear from you soon as the planning for the season is well underway.  Contact Jamie Stirling coach@nordicracers.cafor more details.  

This committee meets about once a month.  One particular skill set we are looking for is a bookkeeper.  No special accounting degree required just basic competency in maintaining spreadsheets.


 

From one social to the next...

Thank you to all the members that responded by showing up last Saturday or by sending me an email. The responses were positive and there will be another social pot-luck evening planned for January/February 2015.

I would like to make a call out for members who would like to host the next social, either at a house or a common room in your apartment/condo.

Please get in touch with Michael at social@nordicracers.caif you have a venue to offer, would like to help, or any other suggestions.

Pictures below are from the Social on Nov 15th at Bella Ceramica.
