Academy News – Frb 24, 17

Hey all,

Week 8 is here and I hope you will be able to give out most of your report cards , please think of keeping them in a baggie to ensure they stay dry.

A few simple things to keep in mind on the second to last week.

  • Review and put it all together · By now you should be able to give your pupils a clear picture of how they ski/ride and suggest simple ways to move forward · It’s feel good time · Positive! Positive! Positive!
  • School Social 4 pm both Saturday and Sunday (pizza, beer and soft drinks), and we will attempt a group picture of the various programs, . Once again all to the benefit of the NGBF for TA’s.

Academy Banquet tickets will be on sale as of the weekend in the cage(25$). Let’s start planning for it. We have many awards to hand out and I will need nominations for the following:

  • SKI WEE program, male and female instructor of the year,
  • All Mountain male and female instructor of the year,

  • Performance programs (ski wee and all mountain).
  • Ski and snowboard TA awards.
