AUSXC Cocktail Night, Melbourne, Friday October 16

On Friday October 16 the Ski & Snowboard Australia Cross Country Ski Team is putting on an end-of-season Cocktail Night in Melbourne. The occasion is a great opportunity for athletes, coaches, officials, parents and general ski enthusiasts to discuss and celebrate the year together without wearing lycra, hats or glasses, and also doubles as a major fundraiser for the XC Towards 2018 project.

Hosted by the Montgomery/Milne family, the evening kicks off at 7:00pm with drinks and finger-food and features a silent auction running in the background throughout the night. Athletes are currently working on a video/photo presentation to show what 2015 was all about, and a few short speeches will also include an overview of the plans for the 2015/2016 international season. All funds raised from the evening go towards athlete international expenses, including for World Cup, the 2016 World Junior/U23 Championship in Romania, the 2016 Winter Youth Olympic Games in Norway and the inaugural World Cup Tour of Canada. In the past two years XC Towards 2018 has raised over $25K/year for athlete expenses, with the two major contributions coming from this Cocktail event and the Sundeck Cup at Perisher.

Skiers past and present are all welcome. If you can’t make it on the night, tax deductible donations are also possible via the Australian Sports Foundation XC Towards 2018 project page.

When: Friday, October 16, 7:00pm
Where: 28 Glassford St, Armadale, 3143
