2019 Constitutional Changes – Ballot

The 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM) passed a series of special resolutions to amend the Club’s Constitution.  These amendments cover four separate sets of changes:

  • Remove transitional clauses that are no longer relevant
  • Change the minimum Youth Membership age to 18
  • Allow removal of Life Members whom the Club has been unable to contact
  • Remove the concept of “leave” for Committee meetings

Constitutional changes, after being approved at the AGM, must be confirmed by a postal ballot of members in order to take effect.  Ballot papers have been posted to all members eligible to vote.  Please follow the instructions on the ballot paper to participate.

Completed ballot papers must be received by 5pm, Friday April 19 2019, to be included in the count.

If you have not received a ballot paper, or have made an error on your ballot paper and would like a new one, you can print one yourself – the link is below.

Also below is a link to information on the background to these changes. This information has been posted to eligible members with ballot papers.

If you have any queries about the ballot process, or the changes being proposed, please contact Jenny McLeod (email

2017 Club Championships

Club Championships in XC, Alpine and Snowboard were held recently.

The XC Championships were held as part of the KAC Classic, from Perisher to Charlotte Pass, on Wednesday 9 August 2017. Unusually for the KAC, it was a beautiful day!

The Alpine and Snowboard Championships were held as part of the ACT Citizens Race, on Sunday 13 August 2017.

Results are on the Race Results page, with links to the full results for each race.

2017 Brumby Races results

The Brumby Races were held on Saturday 22nd July, on Upper Rollercoaster at Blue Cow.  Despite forecast wind, the day turned out to be really nice for weather.

The Brumby Races are held on a dual GS course.  Each racer had two timed runs – one on the red course, and one on the blue, racing next to another racer.

The timed runs are used to determine the winners of the Brumby Cup – but not directly.  A random draw of to match up the men and women was held at the Brumby Dinner on Saturday night, and results for that are given below the timed runs.

Racers also participated in the President’s Cup – a knockout, also using the dual GS course, held after the timed runs.  The winner of each pair progressed to the next round.

Results are on the Race Results page.

Balmain Cup 2016

The slalom discipline was cancelled due to snow conditions in this year’s Balmain Cup, which had a couple of flow on effects – the Snowboard was brought forward, and not all of our original competitors could make it in time; and a decision was made that the GS discipline results would be counted twice, to allow clubs to still drop their worst discipline from the results.  This resulted in a very close competition, with the top four teams being separated by less than five points (out of a possible 300).

CAC came fourth overall, with some good individual results – Jordan Thompson third and Alia Moore 5th in the GS, and Val and Ric Guseli picking up 4th and 7th respectively in the Snowboard.


Full results are available on the Snowsports ACT website at

And the photo?  No, that’s not from the 2016 Balmain Cup – it’s from the 1957 Balmain Cup, held at Mt Franklin, and won by Cabramurra!
