Jay Peak Patroller's Husband wins "First Tracks" Contest

Kudos to a fellow NVT Ski Patroller! This link below pertains to Anne Conner, a member of the Jay Peak Ski Patrol, who won an all expense paid trip withher family to go to Utah to meet with the USA Olympic Ski Team. Anne's husband Ian, entered the "First Tracks" contest and they won the contest to go to Utah to meet with the USA Ski Team. The link tells the story. In it, they also mentioned she patrols at Jay Peak, so there is a bit of "advertisment potental" there. In addition, Anne is looking for any donations people may wish to make to the USA Ski Team, that she could present to them when they go. Unfortuantely, time is short (they are going Nov 4-5), so if you want to donate funds to Team USA, conact Anne at: anne.mcc1@gmail.com

Here is the link to Team USA and First Tracks contest announcement: http://www.usskiteam.com/alpine/news?storyId=3870
