NENSA is pleased to announce that we are collaborating with the Quarry Road Ski Club to host the annual Event Organizer’s and Technical Delegate and Training Seminar at Quarry Road Trails in Waterville, Maine. The event will occur December 3rd & 4th, starting at 11:00am on the 3rd to accommodate longer driving times. Please note that the seminar will begin at the Chace Community Forum in the Alfond Commons (driving directions, parking map, & birds eye view map shows the entrance to the Chace Forum). Quarry Road has been working their snowmaking magic to ensure we have skiable snow for the event as well!
Highlights of this year’s seminar will include training for Race Secretary, Chief of Timing, start crew, as well as presentations on modern chip timing needs and Quarry Road’s first decade of snowmaking operations. For the Sunday session, we have the unique opportunity to have live practice as race organizers at the Quarry Road Opener race. This is a low key event that will allow us to observe and practice what we learned/discussed the previous day. We have lots of talks/conversations and hands-on activities to help us all become better event organizers and officials!
Here is the event agenda for those wanting a little more detail.
