AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM BC ALPINE

We are searching for all BC Alpine ski racing alumni.  We have not done a good job of tracking and engaging this important group, but that’s about to change.  Check out the link above and let us know you’re still out there.  We are offering you a chance to sign up to receive our monthly newsletter/update beginning in the fall of 2016.  We want to keep you in the loop and also build a list of contacts to let you know of any upcoming special events. You will eventually be able to go to our website (www.bcalpine./com) and search for others from your club and year of birth (which could be scary).

Thanks to all, and you will hear back from us in the fall of 2016.  Please help get the word out and we look forward to hearing from you.
