Upcoming Season

Here we are once again, into fall and starting to notice the cooler temperatures. I know there are still leaves on the trees that that will change before we know it and then comes the snow. The TSR board has already been hard at work, trying to get prepared for the upcoming season. Equipment has been purchased, meetings held and much planning has already taken place. I’ll just touch some of the major points.
The Registration night is set for October third and we are planning on using the Sportsplex upstairs pool viewing area again. All members will be notified but I will post final times and any changes on the homepage of this site. Similarly, the Annual General Meeting is set for October 17, and it will again be held in the Timmins and District Hospital Administration Boardroom. Final times have not been set.
Work is being done at the hill to put the doors on the start shack and replace the damaged timing wire on the Downhill. Unfortunately, the wire we had was stolen over the summer so we will be looking to find new cable to run this fall.
The Tremblant training camp is planned for December 16-21 and we are hearing great interest from the membership. This is a fantastic week that lets our racers log a lot of miles and get their ski legs into shape for the season.
Speaking of getting in shape, dryland training will start up the end of October with one day/week for the U10s and two days for the older kids. We are still confirming the location and dates/times but a general memo will be sent once the details are firmed up.
Yuk Yuk’s is set for Friday, November 15 at Thériault High School at 8PM. The comedians are being arranged and confirmed but we will have tickets to distribute at the registration night.
Spread the word - TSR is continuing to grow and we anticipate great things from our racers this year.
