Morning everyone
It is white outside again this morning while I type this weeks very limited news so lets hope for a little more snow and the World Championships are starting today :-) so get tuned in and watch some racing!!
Last week the wild weather put pay to the tigers sessions. I hope we managed to catch most people via facebook, email and text messages.
This week will be the last coached Tigers session (with a new coaching app to try out) until 28th February as all coaches are out of the country (sorry it is that time of year). However you can still pop to the slope for a recreational ski to keep things going. I know some members are planning to do that so feel free to go for it.
10th March 2013 - Next session is filling up fast so get your names down ( I have about 13 names so far....keep them coming we can put more coaches on and the last session although busy was very rewarding for all those participants.
28th April 2013
Some members have mentioned a Scotland trip. My diary is very full until beginning of April, however we can send another coach. If anyone wants to organise a date....feel free. I will attempt to organise some coaching or you could just go for a ski as a group of like minded people. Anyone want to organise a date??
