As a club member have you offered to assist at this years Kangaroo Hoppet in SOME capacity? Don’t just ski the race and walk away. DO SOMETHING — help the race committee either on the Friday set-up, morning of the race, during the race or for the post race clean up. Indicate your interest to Nick Wright (volunteer co-ordinator). Details below.
The Kangaroo Hoppet is the major event for Australian XC skiing but it can’t run without BNSC volunteers.
Our Club receives significant funding from Kangaroo Hoppet in recognition of the club’s involvement in organising the event and the volunteer contribution of club members.
These funds support club programs including Junior Birkie activities, coaching clinics, social activities, the race program and support for our elite athletes training and competing overseas, allowing us to keep our membership fees very low.
As a Birkebeiner member, you are asked to help make the 27th Kangaroo Hoppet a success.
Depending on your role you maybe provided with a Hoppet T-Shirt ( via a Hoppet Shop voucher in Mt Beauty), lunch and drinks.
Thank you – from the Kangaroo Hoppet Organising Committee.
