Ski and Snowboard Australia (SSA) announced on February 14th that seven Aussie skiers had been selected as part of the national team which will compete at the 2019 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Seefeld, Austria.
Beginning 20 February for almost two weeks the Aussie contingent has a formidable line up with a balance between seasoned veterans and fresh rising talent.
With four women and three men, Australia’s team includes four athletes who competed almost a year ago to the day at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games.
Congratulations to club members Phillip Bellingham, Katerina Paul and Aimee Watson on their selection. The club wishes them well in their endeavours to ‘be the best they can be’. Valerio Leccardi (National Coach & Manager at the Championships) is also a Birkie member. Good luck with the team, Valerio.

Work at the race hut — Today new storage racks were constructed to house the V boards and separate the aluminium orange poles with clips and without clips (race organisers please take note). This was a Brian Keeble initiative – thanks Brian. On another occasion Brian placed a number of stumps under the race hut to support the old floor (a big job). The old hut has been in the Nordic Bowl since 1989. Click [HERE] to view its history.
Mystery couch at the clubhouse – The pictured couch was placed in the clubhouse some time after winter. The committee has no knowledge of who placed it there. It is in the children’s ‘play space’ and is an inconvenience. The committee has asked that whoever put it there could they please remove it.
