leadership and energy. It takes many years, dedication, money and focus to get to this level. Hearty congratulations from your Nordic BOE. National Front After 20 years as a Nordic Demo Team member, and 12 years as the Nordic Team coach, Craig Panarisi has decided to retire. He has been the pulse, drive and energy of the team since Tony Forrest left 18 years ago. Craig and the teams have produced a lot of educational materials and have traveled the world. His fun personal approach to life makes it easy to be coached and directed by him. The Eastern Staff would like to thank and congratulate all the years of service that Craig has provided. Currently, the PSIA National Demo Teams coach and the PSIA office are sifting through resumes to put a coach in place by Sept 1. Finally, we would like to thank all members who participated in clinics this season and we look forward to serving you once again with a diverse event schedule and fun times. Enjoy some pictures of events from the season. Stay or get in shape, and we should be on snow in 140 days - if not sooner. ■
