I can’t thank all of you – and of course Mother Nature – enough for making Friday’s golf outing such a successful event. The whole day went off without a hitch and it seemed everyone had a great time. Over the last two days I’ve tried to take in what happened on Friday and I still just can’t believe it- those of you that were there can probably understand what I’m talking about. Seeing the first auction item, a pair of used Women’s WC Atomic skis, go for $10,000 was nothing short of unbelievable.

After computing all of the major costs, the tournament raised $33,450, which was above and beyond our goal. What this means is that I will be able to fund my entire season and we’ll be able to have a coach at some of our camps and events. We won’t be able to pay a coach’s salary, but we’ll be able to pay their expenses on at least one Europe camp and while we’re in the U.S. This is huge. Coaching was the one thing that really lacked in New Zealand; we just didn’t have anyone to video, help set courses, and be there mentally for us.

Thanks to all of you that came and helped. It’s your generosity that makes my ski racing pursuits possible. Thank you.

I hope everyone had as much fun out there on the course as my foursome.

I’ll be in touch, w
