The best downhill racer

A special movie event was hosted at the historic Gayety Theatre in Collingwood on November 30th. From host and sponsor Nick Hamilton, Investment Advisor, RBC Dominion Securities: “The Best Downhill Racer – The Re-Match appealed to fans of skiing and ski racing in our community. The event was a tremendous success and a whole lot of fun.With everyone’s generous support, over $6000 was raised for Parachute Canada. There was some terrific first-hand commentary from Steve Podborski, Todd Brooker and Bill Johnston, the film’s director. Most of us know and understand the dangers that come with downhill ski racing. Parachute was a very suitable charity to support this year in light of their dedication to preventing injuries and saving lives. A very special thank you to Bill Johnston & Summerhill Entertainment for permission to use the film and bring it back to life. Thanks also to Todd Brooker and Steve Podborski for reliving some fun (and terrifying) stories from the world cup circuit for everyone to enjoy. What a night! See you next year!” Photos/Story: Dave West Photography.
