Phoenix Racers receive donation

The Heritage Credit Union donated towards some new equipment.

Submitted by the Phoenix Racers

The Phoenix All Mountain Ski Racers graciously accepted a cheque of $1,470 from the Heritage Credit Union in Greenwood this week.

The Race Club, who will be hosting their registration date on Dec. 30 at Phoenix Mountain, are excited and thrilled at this contribution as it will allow for the purchase of some “much needed race equipment”.

The All Mountain Racers will be purchasing new stubbie gates, or for those unfamiliar with racing, the red and blue poles that skiers race past down the slope.

The equipment will be utilized throughout the 2018 training season, and will be put to use when the Phoenix Racers host the Dual Slalom, Nancy Greene race in February. This is a race that will see teams from Whitewater, Red Mountain and Salmo at the local hill.

“The Heritage Credit Union contribution will allow the Phoenix Race Club to ensure our kids are receiving quality training,” said Colby Mullis, All Mountain Racers coordinator. “As well, it frees the club up to look at where and what can be improved next — its really an amazing contribution.”
