Maccabi SnowSports Championship 2013

Posted: 22-Aug-2013 by Maccabi VIC

Despite the conditions, the 4th annual Michael Coppel Presents Maccabi Jewish SnowSports Carnival was a resounding success. Mt Buller turned on the weather which certainly didn’t dampen our spirits although our gloves were a little soggy!

98 Jewish competitors fought it out for snowboard and skiing bragging rights across 6 skiing divisions and 3 snowboard divisions. Most impressive were the 25 primary students from Division 4 and 5, our future champions in the making.

The student social function saw snow man making, rock climbing, trampolining and “just chilling” out for some after the long trip to the snow. AJAX as always hosted a superb buffet for the adults, enabling the competitors, their parents and teachers to mix in a relaxed environment.

There was great buzz of anticipation at the after race function as winners were cheered and competitors presented with participation medals (thanks Safety Dave). Friends were made, race times were set and we hope to see everyone at Mt Buller on August 9th and 10th 2014 to see old friends, make new ones, and most importantly beat their personal best.
