Special Olympics

Members of the CSC having been supporting the Special Olympics for 30 years as volunteers. We are Ski Partners and Course Workers for the 300+ Athletes each season. It's a great experience for our Ski Club Members. Once you have done it you will look forward to it every year!
 
Many of these Athletes have never been on skis before, to teach them in three sessions to negotiate a slalom course and see them win a medal - well you can't imagine what a great feeling that is for the Athlete and everyone involved.

Special Olympics are held at Perfect North Slopes, Lawrenceburg, IN.  All events are listed below.

To sign you up, I need your full address and phone numbers. Also, please indicate your ski level - expert or intermediate skier and whether you have previous experience as a ski partner or course worker.

Also, these are all skiing events so we can't use snowboarders as ski partners.

We are always short of help on the weekdays. Ski Partners must be at least 16 years old and should be intermediate or better skiers able to give encouragement and direction to the Athletes. There has never been a better reason to take a few days off work to go skiing! All events are at Perfect North Slopes - East Lodge.

We are always shorthanded on the weekdays. Please do what you can to get a day or two off work.

Thanks in advance for your time to help all these great Athletes!

To sign up email Rich Brown at wforich@aol.com  or 513-886-2062 and tell him the days you can help, full address and phone numbers, expert or intermediate skier, do you have previous experience as a ski partner. Or specify Course Worker for Monday or Tuesday.
