Hi everyone

Great turnout last week after recent sessions were clearly rain affected. Kids and adults groups are both doing well and improving week on week.

Once again this week it will be Andrew and myself coaching. Fiona has some potential ligament damage although we are not sure of anything until she has a scan. We obviously wish her a speedy recovery.

Big things coming up. Tigers / Esskia fun race for all. Check out the dates below but lets have everyone supporting our attempt to help promote local skiing and racing. The race is 20th May. We want entries but also some helpers. Nothing to taxing so contact the race organiser on the attached entry form (Lee Maitland) if you can help. Jobs include starter, start/finish marshals, timers, gatekeepers. Please show your support!!
