Tom Bates, President

 

Kurt Wolf, Vice President

 

Paul Klasner, Director

 

Peter Thimm, Secretary

Peter grew up in Vermont and Upstate New York with his family’s ski-focus being mostly on Alpine ski racing.  But since there was usually snow out the back door in those days he dabbled in Nordic skiing as well (we’re talking wooden skis and knickers era).  While alpine ski racing remained the focus in college he sometimes was pressed into service as the “fourth man” when the Nordic squad was short a skier.  But his true interest in Nordic skiing didn’t really sharpen until moving to Idaho in the ‘00s.  A friend challenged him to ski the Boulder Mountain Tour in 2017 and then Peter got his family to ski the McCall Remastered race in 2019.  After that he was hooked.  Peter participates in the McCall Nordic adult biathlon program on Wednesdays and looks for any excuse to come to McCall during the winter.  He currently lives in Boise as he winds up his ~30 year career in the semiconductor industry.

 

Dave Reddick, Treasurer

David Reddick was raised in a small farm town in California’s central valley. He participated in a variety of sports before finishing high school, although found the most success in swimming. He graduated from the University of California at Berkeley and rowed for the varsity crew. David worked 21 years in mining explosives, most notably as Vice President of Operations for Mining Services International. While living in Labrador City, Canada his family hosted several U.S. Nordic skiers during early season training and became an avid, if not speedy, cross-country skier. His family moved to McCall in 1993 and his children Mariah and Andrew participated in the Nordic program. He served as treasurer for the program for several years at that time. He switched careers to teaching in 2002 and served the McCall-
Donnelly School District for 15 years before retiring in 2019.
