Rossendale Summer League Information - Please contact Lee to take part

Hi Everyone,

Tigers Trip away anyone?

I have finally received the forms for the Rossendale Summer League and I've attached the basic information sheet for you all to see what it is about.

The form for the next race, Sunday 8th July, is due this weekend, but I've arranged to send it on Monday, as it was only sent to me this morning! I've also been asked to provide a "Squad List" of all those who will want to take part at some point over the Summer, even it is just one race.

If you are intending to take part in any of the Race League races please can you send me your Name and Date of Birth as soon as possible?

This is an ideal opportunity for parents to ski with their children, in fact it is positively encouraged! There are age groups from Under 8 to Over 50 so I can offer no-one any excuses!

I think it will be easier for all concerned if we deal with each month seperately. SO I'm just going to concentrate on July's race for now.

I have the following Tigers Racers down for July 8th:

Martha Bradley
Lauren Stephenson
James Stephenson
Amy Stokoe
David Stokoe

As teams are to be made up of 6 it would be really helpful if at least one more person would take part! However, obviously the more the merrier and each person is competing in their individual category as well as the team competition. We can enter as many teams as we want.

I have made arrangements to stay at the Holiday Inn Express at Burnley the night before. Obviously this isn't compulsory, but I thought it would be a good "Tigers Trip Away" and a nice get together over the Summer. If you would like to just come along and not actually Ski then that is fine, just please let me know as soon as possible. Cost is around £70 per room (which sleeps 2 adults and 2 children) Bed and Breakfast. 

So far the Stokoes and Bradley/Maitlands are booked in for Saturday 7th July. 

If you aren't going to be away please consider giving Rossendale a go. It's great fun. As you will see on the Information Sheet the emphasis is on fun and the atmosphere is relaxed. My aim is to take a team to each race, represent Tigers Ski Club and put the emphasis on "Club" and the social aspect. 

I will be at Tigers on Thursday Night to collect the payments for those going, but in the meantime I need names and dates of birth please for July!

Entry fee for each racer is £12.50 per race day. This does not include equipment hire, but this can be arranged for £3 per day.

Any questions please give me a ring or drop me an email. I need to get this form to Rossendale by Monday please!

Kind Regards,

Lesley Maitland
