Morning everyone
Well a good turnout last week on the snow covered hill at Sunderland. Some great work on edging on the nursery area and then some posture / balancing work on the man made jump. Everyone seemed to enjoy it!!
As I type it is beating it down with snow outside so who knows we might get another snow session on Thursday evening followed by one at Castleford on Sunday. Last day for names today!!!
Judging by soome of the facebook comments some of our members have skied locally on snow at Weardale, Cheviot and even Pegswood Heap. Wow great stuff!! There is also a nice little article on Amy Stokjoe in the journal. You can view this at
A few members have asked for new hoodies so i propose I do an order at the end of January. The order form is attached above. I am happy to get them printed on black or orange as a change please indicate which colour you would like.
27th January 2013 I have about 17 names Andrew and myself coaching so we can take a few more if you get your names in this week. Last day for names!!!
10th March 2013
