Hi everyone

A great turnout last week with some excellent skiing going on.

Following a short meeting with the slope manager last week, I have been informed that the slope staff have had several meetings relating to the quality of service they provide. Therefore if you are unhappy with any part of the service (not relating to Tigers) then please either inform the slope duty manager, manager or fill in a customer comments form available in the ski centre. Obviously any problem with Tigers then please let us know.

Coming up:
Castleford session - Sunday 25th March. Still taking names for this.

Rossendale Summer League:
Briefly a series of 5 races over the summer months. It is a team event for Tigers however the coaches emphasis is bringing out the best in each child. Improvement is always dramatic at this event as each participant has 2 slalom runs then races head to head (on identical courses) against 3 other competitors who have had a similar time over the slalom runs in the morning. An excellent way to improve. It has been used as training by the likes of David Ryding (current British team) in his early years.

The dates are:
13th May
10th June
8th July
12th August
9th September.

Don't quote me on the cost I think it is about 10 pounds ish. It is a great day if not long (about 8am at Rossendale till around 5 ish)
We are looking to put a team or teams in. I hope Lee Maitland is coordinating (let me know) and we will endeavour to get a coach at each date to help you all.

Club Nationals

You can register with Snowsport England through our website but you do not have too to try out these events. These races are run around the country (none in the NE this year). The format is 3 runs of slalom with the best out of the fist 2 runs and the last run too count towards a combined time. Again good fun but not as much skiing as the summer league above.

You can check out whats coming up on the race callender on or again through our website. Races up soon are:

14th April Club National,          Manchester                    Telford Ski Club
15th April Club National,          Manchester                    Chill Factor Ski Club
28-Apr Club National                Pendle                          Pendle Ski Club 
29-Apr Club National                Pendle                          Peak Performance Snowsport Club

Entries close for all races about 2 weeks before the date. Again we will endeavor if enough people participate to get a coach there.

Ok hope that helps everyone's understanding but please let me know if you have any questions.

See you all tomorrow.
