First off, I want to congratulate all the NYSEF athletes who took part in the International Children’s Winter Games this past week. Though the field numbers weren’t high, the atmosphere created by the kids and coaches was incredible. Through some trying conditions the kids persevered and came out in the end with some new friends from around the world and maybe a new perspective of what participating in sport can bring. I can only hope that the spirit of friendship and camaraderie will continue and that they will stay in touch with their newfound friends. Only good can come of that!
We couldn’t have pulled off an event like this without our great staff – coaches Bob Witt, Justin Perry, Jackson Deeney, Zac Horrocks, Kevin Ladue, & Gore Coaches Andrew Parent and Josh Shute – Zach Ford from race crew and Hadley Driscoll, Race Administrator – volunteers Tommy Thomson, Max Stransky, Antoinette Rose, & Glen Haran – our Slopestyle judges (all NYSEF alumni) Josh Boise, Gavin Fritz, & Tony Russo, and of course, Terrain Park Director Josh Wagner and his crew. Thank you all!
We can all be proud of how our crew represented themselves!
