Peter Miller of Miller’s Pharmacy, Yass was named the fastest pharmacist and winner of the Medici Capital Pharmacy Ski Cup at this year’s Snow Business conference, with a time of 17.54 seconds down the course.
The annual Medici Capital Pharmacy Ski Race was held at Thredbo last week as part of the Pharmacy Snow Business Conference. The race saw the fastest pharmacists on snow go head-to-head on a challenging NASTAR race course at Thredbo.
Basil Macreadie of Priceline Pharmacy Tewantin finished second, with Peter Clinch of Clinch Long Woodbridge rounding out the men’s podium.
This year’s ski race was hotly contested with less than 0.03 seconds separating Peter and Basil and 0.13 seconds separating the top three men.
The Women’s Division was won by Renata Gielis from NSW with pharmacists Cecile Atkins (NSW) and Renee Hall (ACT) coming in second and third respectively.
The ski race was great fun for all involved with Thredbo providing plenty of snow and a great course for competitors, says Medici.
Frank Sirianni, managing director of Medici Capital, says that, “While many of the competitors were eager to meet the challenge and win the race, the ultimate race is addressing the new frontier of pharmacy management.
“The Medici Capital Snow Business Conference addressed many issues for business management and improvement in the light of the many challenges now facing business owners and managers.”
The Ski Race is held each year as part of the Medici Capital Pharmacy Snow Business Conference.
This year’s conference included a wide variety of presentations on pharmacy business issues with guest presenters and pharmacists from throughout Australia and has been labeled by delegates and organisers as the most successful Pharmacy Snow Business conference to date.
