TISC Envoy Tim Touches Down in Antarctica

Plane landing on Antarctic soil

TISC envoy Tim Scidmore arrived in Antarctica this morning in a landmark moment for TISC-WINTERFEST relations. His arrival was greeted with great fanfare and excitement from the locals and the WINTERFEST organisers pulled out all the stops when welcoming their TISC brother to their part of the world.

A red carpet was laid out at the airport in King George Island and a band was commissioned to play some familiar TISC classics to make Tim feel at home.

Tim was interviewed by local reporters upon arrival and he had the following to say:

It is a huge honour to finally put feet on Antarctic snow and to meet all of our WINTERFEST brothers. Everyone has been so lovely and they have put in a huge effort to make me feel welcome and feel at home. Disembarking the plane, there was a loud roar from the locals and despite the cold temperatures, it warmed my heart. You don’t know how special it was to be able to come off the plane after what seemed like an eternity of traveling and to hear “Sninga” being sung by the band as I arrived. It made me feel right at home and immediately got me buzzing. I feel so honoured and privileged to be here.

I can’t wait to see what treats lie in store at WINTERFEST and to hear some wonderful music and meet some great people during my stay here in Antarctica.

L’esercito del Selfie

Although understandably shattered from his 25-hour trip, which featured a short stop on Fernando de Noronha, Tim took time to get to know some of the locals and take some nice selfies…. No doubt moments he will cherish and remember for the rest of his life. He then retired to the White Desert Hotel where he will reside for the duration of his visit to Antarctica. Quite exhausted from the trip, Tim treated himself to a refreshing beverage.

Tomorrow marks the beginning of Tim’s comprehensive sightseeing tour, which will culminate on Thursday with a scheduled visit to the South Pole.

WINTERFEST kicks off this Friday with the Opening Ceremony, to be followed by the Grand Final on Saturday 21st April. It will be the sixth and final staging of WINTERFEST with Antarctica very much vowing to get back onboard with TISC .
