Final Race Report for 2020 by Kevin Cleek

Team Chattanooga braved the horrific travel conditions to present at the Crescent race finals at Snowshoe.  And they (well most of us) didn't disappoint.  Kev, Bev, and Ben Cleek comprised the team and loaded down the car with awards for the trip home.  Ben was the star of the trip. In the slalom race, he recorded a 3rd and a 4th which was good enough for 3rd overall.   Beverly took 4th in the same flight.  In the Giant Slalom race, Ben took 1st and 2nd, which was good enough for 1st overall.  Beverly took 3rd overall.  In the overall combined results for the whole weekend, Ben took 1st and Beverly took 3rd.  When it came time for the awards to be given, Ben once again nabbed a radical pair of sunglasses and a toboggan for placing, to go along with a very nice travel bag he won for a door prize.  But the real prize of the weekend happened when Ben had accumulated enough points over the season to win the overall "Most Improved Racer" award which comes with a brand new pair of skis - compliments of Ski Country Sports, in Banner Elk, NC.  Alas, my own accomplishments ended at safely navigating the blizzard to get to the race.  If futility could be measured, I'd have a medal, as I managed to fall six times in four races and DQ once.  But wait 'til next season.
