Race Schedule - Travelplan Ski Northern NSW & QLD Champs

Changes to the 2019 Northern NSW and Queensland Interschools Provisional Schedule.

Due to expected operational conditions for the coming event period, we have moved to change some of the event scheduling for next week’s Northern NSW and Queensland Event to be held at Perisher. Record event entries of over 3,000 in number from 228 schools has combined with the current snow-level challenges to open all available event terrain, and accordingly Interschools Snowsports has moved to develop a revised schedule in collaboration with the Perisher Resort.

The main changes involve: 

  • Commencing events from Monday afternoon, rather than Tuesday morning.
  • Night-time events to be held on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
  • Completing all events on Friday evening.

The schedule can be found here 

In developing this revised schedule, we have endeavoured to minimise the disruption for parents and competitors by moving some events into the evening before of the original scheduled date only, at this stage. As always the event schedule remains subject to change dependant upon operational conditions. 

We appreciate that this will create some readjustments and extra planning for schools, parents and competitors. We are actively working with the Resort to ensure that the night-time events are managed in an efficient and supportive environment, with suitable facilities and transport options available for all evenings to be in operation.

We look forward to welcoming all schools and competitors next week, and school coordinators should note that Bib-Collection will now commence from 9.30am on Monday from the Perisher Ski Tube Terminal Interschools Race-Office.

Course Officials Guidelines & Briefings

It is very important that Volunteers understand the various Course Officials positions undertaken at Interschools events before they volunteer. We recommend that all Volunteers read the Course Official Guidelines and/or attend a Course Official Briefing.

Interschools is holding a course officials briefing to go though how to perform the volunteer roles and an opportunity to ask any questions;

  • Monday July 8 - 3.30pm-4.30pm in the Interschools Race Office in the Perisher Skitube Terminal 

 

Volunteer Course Officials Lift Ticket Collection

Volunteers are entitled to a free of charge lift ticket on the day they are volunteering.  This lift ticket can only be used by the Course Official if they do not already have a lift pass or season pass.

Lift tickets are collected at the Interschools Race Office between 7.15am - 9.00am each day in the Perisher Skitube Terminal.

 

Course Official Check In

All Volunteers must check in at the Race Office before making their way to the top of the course for the course inspection time. The Interschools Race Office at Perisher is located in the Perisher Skitube Terminal. You must check into the Interschools Race Office between 7.15am - 9.00am each day.

When you check in you will be given a folder, officials vest and an option to take a bottle of water and snack pack. Please bring a backpack to put these in. After you have finished your volunteers duties on course you will need to make sure that the folder and vest is returned to Interschools. 

 

What Happens if I can no longer Volunteer?

In the event that you cannot fulfil your volunteer course official’s position please make an attempt to replace yourself with another person from your school. If you find a replacement, please make sure that they are either aware of what duties they are fulfilling as course official or that they have read the course official guidelines. If you are not able to find a replacement for yourself, please let Interschools know as soon as possible. 

 

Volunteer Tips

Please be prepared for all weather conditions when you are volunteering on our courses and make sure you have clothing options for all conditions!

Gate keepers can be the most exposed to the elements and will be standing or sitting down for the duration of the course. You will be required to write notes in this position so please bring either inner gloves or similar that you can write with.
