All members should be aware that the clubhouse is not accessible during the coronavirus lockdown situation. If and when the resort is open and we are given the go-ahead that is when the facility may be able to be used again. Note — The clubhouse is closed for all access until advised otherwise. The Door Code has been changed and at this stage the committee only has access.
Membership – 2020/21
We feel it’s important that our financial members were not left to make the choice of whether to renew their membership. At the BNSC AGM (Tuesday 18th May) a motion was put (and supported) to waive all membership fees for 2020. As a result, if you and members of your family were financial members of Birkebeiner in 2019, you are now automatically members of Birkebeiner Nordic Ski Club in 2020. You do not need to take any further action.
Voluntary Contribution — While we do not expect any payment, if you would like to make a voluntary contribution, you can do so by the following link to our PayPal Account. Please follow the link you received in your earlier email on 29th May 2020. We thank you for the support.

Overseas Athlete Grants
Birkebeiner has always supported athletes that make National Cross Country Ski Teams. For season 2019/20 a number of senior and junior members were provided with a club grant to assist them with their trip costs. A requirement for receiving a grant is that the athlete has to submit a report to club members on their experience.
