News from the Club5 Plenary Meeting in Zurich

Soldeu (AND) joins Club5 family and the members agree on giving new verve to the association that gathers the “Classic” races of the white circuit

On Thursday, September 28th, the Club5 Plenary Meeting took place in Zurich, on occasion of the FIS Autumn Technical Committee Meetings.
Club5 president, Mr. Srecko Medven, welcomed the members in the room La Place of the Hilton Zurich Airport to deal with some important topics regarding the next World Cup season and the future of the Association.

The members spent a couple of hours together, discussing some huge news that will involve all the members in the upcoming months. Great importance was given by the plenary to the topics concerning the season which is just around the corner – as in less than a month the 2023-2024 World Cup season will start with the opening in Sölden (AUT). Among the topics, the decision of FIS to introduce the fluor ban control at the finish areas of the tracks, the requests raised by the SRS, and the necessity of Club5 to find a renovated form and to refresh the spirit of the association: to be mentioned, for example, the decision to proceed with organizing a new Club5 workshops in the future months, to honour the will of the members to learn and innovate by gathering and discussing on important matters, as it happened in 2022 in Crans Montana.

But no less importance is to be given to the admission of a new affiliated member. Soldeu Grandvalira, responsible of the organization of the races in Soldeu in Andorra – which hosted the 2023 World Cup finals and which will host two women tech races on February 10th and 11th, 2024 – has received unanimous approval by the members, after the positive report given by Mr. Rainer Senoner, Club5 Vice President, who last Autumn had been entrusted by the Assembly to visit the resort on occasion of the finals.

The meeting also had the pleasure to host some representatives of the FIS staff to bring the voices of the FIS race directors and to confirm once again, the good relationship that binds the FIS officials and the organizers, united not only by esteem and passion, but also by the desire to work together for the good of our sport.
