For many parents, tail-gunning is the first exposure to volunteering with FAST.
With one kid through the FAST program, one still actively racing, and a fondness for the Fernie lifestyle, volunteering with the club was a natural fit for Adam. For the past six years, you may have seen him in a variety of roles from timing, start hut, course maintenance, official “missed gate flag up guy” capacity, and just as importantly, cheering/consoling.
“I support FAST because it makes my kids better skiers and more importantly, better people,” says Adam. “If you haven’t volunteered with the club before, I’d encourage you to give it a shot and unlike hockey parents, we all genuinely like each other."
