The MBRC Legacy of Alistair Guss

Alistair Guss - MBRC President June 2010 - June 2014 - A journey full of passion, commitment and joy!
When I came back to Mt Buller Race Club in June 2010 as a program director, MBRC had 13 coaches and 86 athletes in the program, which meant the program had no long-term sustainability. Under the 3-year leadership and presidency of Alistair Guss, MBRC adjusted programs, strategy and most importantly our club culture. In the 2013 season we had a record number of over 200 program members (including 30 Masters members) and 26 coaches. Read more...

We are grateful that senior coaches like Annie McCormack, Mane Blomeier, Chris McKnight, Steve Brown, Palo Razus and Ant Hill joined us all the way through until this season.

Under Al ́s leadership, the club had some stand-out achievements:

  • Revived the MBRC club culture to an inclusive, pro-active and sustainable club
  • MBRC Sponsorship Program (Gold, Silver, Bronze Sponsors)
  • Strong membership base to keep MBRC membership fees low


A huge THANK YOU goes as well to Al ́s wife Jules and his children Yssy and Angus, who supported Al ́s committement to MBRC over all these years. Especially the MBRC core staff (Sue, Stoffl, Mane and Chris) would like to thank Al for his passion and committement to the Club and it ́s athletes. Al will further support the club with his passion and committement as a MBRC Committee member and MBRC Silver Sponsor (MAC Engineering Solutions).
Thanks Al!

Stoffl Maier (MBRC Program Director)
