We will provide the meat (and vegie burgers for those who prefer them), as well as bread and sauce.
You’ll need to bring your own chair, cutlery, plates, drinks, plus, for families, a salad and a sweet to share (singles and couples – please bring a salad OR a sweet to share).
RSVP to Kerry Lucas (social secretary) by Wednesday 16th November:
Email: <firstname.lastname@example.org> or Mobile: 0419 349 319
As a courtesy to Kerry, please let her know you will be coming and if you need vegetarian food (or else BYO meat!!) If you don’t reply, we will assume you are not coming so we don’t over-order. It also makes it easier to contact you if the weather necessitates a change of venue.
If you decide to come at the last minute, please bring your own meat!
National Teams — Good Luck and safe travels to Birkie skiers in Senior and Junior National Teams heading overseas for training and competition this Northern Winter.

Casey Wright also currently studying and training in Anchorage, Alaska. Kat Paul, Aimee Watson, Nick Montgomery, Abe Wright and juniors Jarrah Forrer, Findlay and Freya Clarke. Best wishes to any Masters skiers heading overseas — Ronice Goebel (President)
National Team Club Travel Grants — From November, BNSC National Team members will be training and representing Australia at events that include World Junior and U23 Championships in Soldier Hollow Utah, USA, World Senior Championships in Lahti Finland, and many others such as various World Cup venues from Estonia to a pre Olympic World Cup in Korea.
Six members have been allocated grants totalling $4000 to assist with their endeavours and goals in the upcoming northern season. The successful applicants are:
- Phillip Bellingham
- Casey Wright
- Paul Kovacs
- Kat Paul
- Abe Wright
- Jarrah Forrer
Each year in October the Birkebeiner Nordic Ski Club executive approves between $3000 and $4000 to BNSC members selected for National teams and embarking on a program supported by SSA (Ski and Snowboard Australia) It is expected that recipients of the grant will contribute to the life of BNSC and identify, represent, and compete as a BNSC member. Another condition of receiving the grant is that the skier will report to the club on their overseas activity, so we look forward to these accounts in our Bulletin next year.
As an aside, those skiers attending the training camp in Sun Valley Idaho will meet up with ‘Tommy Boy Smith’ who many will remember as our OS Coach for 2014.
We wish all skiers a fantastic experience and hope that those personal bests and goals are achieved.
Ronice Goebel (President)
