The Alan Rossi Award is presented annually to the skier/official who best exemplifies the Real Deal spirit of Alan Rossi with a love of our sport, dedication to tournament skiing, a willingness to help others, and a true friend. Last year the award went posthumously to Russ Cole from Mass. who passed suddenly in 2012. Russ was a hard working great family man and friend to everyone he met and he volunteered much of his time to our sport. Past winners are posted on our website. Donations go to Eastern Region Junior Development in Alan’s name and to fund GMWS clinics like the one last year with Jamie Beauchesne. Please consider nominating anyone who you feel is worthy of this award. Having such a prestigious award that recognizes individuals who give unselfishly of themselves to others and our sport has great meaning to recipients and family. Also, please consider donating by check or PayPal to the Green Mountain Water Skiers for the Alan Rossi Award. It’s a great cause. Thank You!
