You can help!!


The AWWF is embarking on a long term project to capture the history of our sport in the form of photos, teams, records etc etc. This will be a significant project relying on a lot of past skiers, memories, families etc . The past two  Hall of Fame events  have already  provided us with a look at the past with names like Max Kirwan, Fred Williams, Betty Leighton and Bev Bauman giving us a view of the old days. Two books released recently by Max and Fred have added to the history provided in the Bob Wing and the Thurlow family publications. The option of a book has been investigated however to keep it live and up to date  it will be web based in soft copy so it can grow as we go.

At the next AWWF Board meeting I will be asking all Divisions to nominate a “Historian” to assist us in gathering information.

To start the process we don’t want to go too hard too quick so in the first place we need to start with World Teams, names and photo’s. If you have any old photos or Team information we would love a copy (soft or scanned preferable).

If you can help contact Gary or Sue at the AWWF on 0260 212223 or e mail us at admin@awwf.com.au
