We have a lot to celebrate. The NYSEF alumni heading to PyeongChang to compete in the 2018 Winter Games are Lowell Bailey, Tommy Biesemeyer, Tim Burke, Kevin Drury, Will Rhoads and Andrew Weibrecht. There is something about NYSEF that makes an ordinary individual into an extraordinary individual. Many of NYSEF members know exactly what I am talking about. …the combination of experience on the hill or in the sky and character that set our community apart.

If you are sliding down the race course due to heavy rain or doing freestyle laps on a .5K loop. NYSEF athletes have grit, they have perseverance. It is one of the many reasons why we continue to see former NYSEF athletes competing in the Winter Games.

Join me for a toast to wish these athletes much success in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.
