And “we” are off! The Road to the OCUP finals presented by Pizza Pizza has begun and Devyn (Social media guru) and Marc (Activation guru..he has the medals so he’s important) just left AOA headquarters here at 39A Stewart Rd… Our moving office will cover over 2000km’s during the next 10 days with Searchmont and Camp Fortune being the host clubs for our season ending OCUP finals events in both U14 and U16. I will be joining the motley duo tomorrow evening after the Cadillac Fairview, Oxford, Dream FIS OCUP at Osler Bluff Ski Club wraps up!

The folks up at Searchmont have already offered one of their hill side cabins for our steady ship to be anchored during the nights which is fantastic! The weather is looking like it will cooperate nicely with seasonal temperatures returning for the week and I know ROC chair Mike Schikofsky, aka, “Shicker” is keen to get the racing underway with tomorrow’s OCUP Final Super G!

We look forward to bringing you all the action from the bog events including daily video’s, pictures, and stories from our athletes, volunteers and alumni!

Lastly, thank you to our amazing sponsors who are making both this trip possible but also allow AOA to provide all the many services to our membership and funding to our athletes!
