<p>
	&nbsp;</p>
<p>
	Tim Nelson is the U12 Athlete of the Month for February.&nbsp; When he's not skiing, Tim can be found listening to music and practicing his drumming. In the off season Tim plays a lot of baseball and enjoys mountain biking on Mt Fromme, when he's not taking a nap on the trampoline.</p>
<p>
	Tim absolutely hates the end of ski season.&nbsp; His favorite thing in the world is Oreo ice cream. This is closely followed by sharing regular training tips from coach Titouan and the adventures they have as a team. "It's really fun!"</p>
<p>
	A little known fact about Tim: he's the youngest person to captain a boat across the finish line of the annual Shark Spit Regatta sailboat race that takes place every summer off of the Discovery Islands in the Salish Sea.</p>
<p>
	Tim wants to say thanks to everyone at Tyee who has helped him out along the way including his U10 coaches Mathieu and Andrew, who gave him his nickname: Timbit.</p>
<p>
	Congratulations Timbit on a great season and on being named Athlete of the Month</p>

	<img data-cke-saved-src="/images/image/u8u10grouseRace.jpg" alt="" src="/images/image/u8u10grouseRace.jpg" style="width: 400px; height: 300px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></p>
<p>
	&nbsp;</p>
<p>
	We’re nearing the end of the racing season but it always wraps up with a storm of events.&nbsp; It’s March Madness, no less frenetic than the college basketball version.&nbsp; The mania kicked off with the U8/U10 event held this year on Grouse Mountain and hosted by the Tyee Ski Club.&nbsp; This is the first time we’ve had this race on Grouse this decade.&nbsp; 240 NGSL racers competed in 2 runs of Glalom, set up on Centennial, under a blue bird sky.&nbsp; There was also a combi course and a jump at the bottom of Expo. It was a perfect day for skiing and a great introduction to how fantastically fun racing can be for our young athletes and families alike. &nbsp;</p>
<p>
	This may be the busiest season in history for the Tyee ski club and its army of volunteers.&nbsp; The NGSL race followed right on the heels of the FIS race and the Tyee Cup.&nbsp; To activate that many volunteers to sacrifice their weekends working for a free lunch and a beer ticket is incredible.&nbsp; Yes the bagel sandwiches are very good and the beer goes down easy at the end of the day but these races wouldn’t happen without the efforts of Chantel Rackley and Ashley Gold coordinating and coercing. &nbsp;&nbsp;On the technical side Nesho Plavsic put together a perfect plan to make everything run like a Swiss watch.</p>
<p>
	The madness continued the following weekend with the U14 Provincials in Prince George and the U12 Janyk Cup in Whistler.&nbsp; The U14s produced some impressive results for the Tyee Ski Club.&nbsp; In the female slalom Cordelia Hultman finished 8<sup>th</sup> and Brooke Irish 9<sup>th</sup>.&nbsp; The top Tyee on the male side was an 11<sup>th</sup> place finish for Noah Fischer.&nbsp; In GS first year U14 Maeve Pretty finished 19<sup>th</sup> while Graeme Eder cracked the top 10 with a 7<sup>th</sup> place result.&nbsp;</p>
<p>
	The weekend at Purden Mountain wrapped up with a wild day of team dual slalom.&nbsp; The squad of Alexa Brownlie from Whistler, former Tyee Alec Waldrum, Reed Kelly from Revelstoke and Addyson Kuss and Tessa Wang from Grouse Mountain took home Gold beating the team anchored by Tyee Noah Fischer.&nbsp; Noah Smith was on the Bronze medal winning team.</p>
<p>
	On a warm weekend in Whistler the GS and Glalom courses on Ptarmigan held up surprisingly well for the Janyk Cup.&nbsp; Grouse Tyee skiers competed incredibly well.&nbsp; In the first race the overall winner was Ben Gold. Indigo Liu finished 5<sup>th</sup>, Ben Nelson 7<sup>th</sup>, Borna Awaii 9<sup>th</sup> and Callum Elburn 10<sup>th</sup>.&nbsp; For Females, Lilia Rose finished 3<sup>rd</sup>, Nina Jacobs 5<sup>th</sup> and Ruby Gee 9<sup>th</sup>.</p>
<p>
	The Second race was also peppered with Tyee skiers.&nbsp; Nina Jacobs finished 6<sup>th</sup>, Lilia Rose 8<sup>th</sup> and 1<sup>st</sup> year U12 Emily Warman finished 9<sup>th</sup> overall.&nbsp; On the male side Borna Awaii came in 5<sup>th</sup>, Smith Irish 7<sup>th</sup> and Tim Nelson 8<sup>th</sup>.</p>
<p>
	The Sun Peaks Festival is taking place March 22<sup>nd</sup> and 23<sup>rd</sup> while the U16s are competing at Apex.&nbsp; Early results from day one at Apex are promising for Grouse athletes.&nbsp; In Female GS Katarina Kaludjercic finished 9<sup>th</sup> while Mila Plavsic finished just outside the top 10 in 11<sup>th</sup>.&nbsp; The boys raced Slalom on day 1 with Dylan Stevens finishing 5<sup>th</sup> and Taylor Nellis 7<sup>th</sup>.</p>
<p>
	Enjoy the rest of your season and thanks to all Tyee families for putting in the volunteer time to make our club so successful both on and off the race course.</p>

	It’s always a tough couple weekends on Grouse Mountain, and at the Tyee Cabin, in February when our club comes together to put on a FIS race followed by the Tyee Cup.&nbsp; Hundred of prep and volunteer hours go into making these events run so smoothly, which they always inevitably do.</p>
<p>
	About 200 ski racers put their polls over the wand and ripped down Expo during the two day Tyee Cup.&nbsp; It wrapped up under the sun with absolutely perfect snow conditions Sunday.&nbsp; &nbsp;</p>
<p>
	If you haven’t had a chance to check out the pictures of The Tyee Cup taken by Tyee parent &amp; photographer extraordinaire,&nbsp;<strong>Jirka Vanourek</strong>&nbsp;of&nbsp;<strong>Blue Rabbit Photography </strong>here’s the link:&nbsp;<a data-saferedirecturl="https://www.google.com/url?q=https://flic.kr/s/aHskP843kP?fbclid%3DIwAR2KuyQhqL5fqr9czm4hgc5SfIcuQ4g53ig5QBq_fyf57rFZyVQs7z5YtMo&amp;source=gmail&amp;ust=1551756732754000&amp;usg=AFQjCNG6ryA5OwTUwoQoNKabtIYp9olxBA" href="https://flic.kr/s/aHskP843kP?fbclid=IwAR2KuyQhqL5fqr9czm4hgc5SfIcuQ4g53ig5QBq_fyf57rFZyVQs7z5YtMo" target="_blank">https://flic.kr/s/aHskP843kP?<wbr />fbclid=<wbr />IwAR2KuyQhqL5fqr9czm4hgc5SfIcu<wbr />Q4g53ig5QBq_<wbr />fyf57rFZyVQs7z5YtMo</a></p>
