I hope everyone that attended the 2016 Regional Championships at Lake Holly had a blast! I know I did!
The new fangled team event brought about some friendly ‘smack’ talk, great competition and brought in skiers that typically wouldn’t have skied in a particular event; or even come to regionals in the first place. The team event was a success!!!
We had some changing of the guards, with Pat Bryne stepping back into the EVP spot for 2017 and Gary Noll taking Pat’s AWSA Director spot. Bravo gentlemen.
Check out the following video address (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WblUI2janks) for some general highlights and our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/AWSA.East/) for pictures galore from the Regional Championships.
The video touches on: EVP change, 2017 regionals, $$, other.
Even though I’ve stepped down as EVP, I will be helping with some of the coordination for the 2017 regionals until December 31st of this year; so if you are interested in helping out contact me so I can get you on the list.
Shout out to TG Powel for a great Jr Development event! Netting just over $1000 in fundraising cash!!! Rock on!!!
Also, I attempted to identify and chat with the skiers that had never come to regionals before! Congrats! And I hope you enjoyed yourselves!

What a great Regionals!! I never imagined that I would trick at a regionals, let alone have fun doing it!
Tanya, you have left big shoes to fill. The last 2 years has created more positive change and resolution to outstanding issues for a sport that is badly in need of evolution. Thank you for the dedication to the sport and for the time and effort that you have sacrificed for all of us in the region.
