Hi everyone

Well apparently a fabulous turnout last week at Tigers. Must be because I was not there. I have to say though being a former athlete it was a special moment seeing the Olympic torch in Alnwick. A very inspiring evening!

We also had members at the Esskia training day on Sunday at Sunderland. Once again, they worked hard and did not let the team down!! Well done to you all.

There is also Esskia training on over at Rossendale this Sunday. I will be heading up the coaching there and I think there are spaces available if anyone wants to venture West. Times are from 12pm - 4pm. Give Lee Maitland an email to check on places

Dates for diaries.

Thursdays - Every week Club night 6.30pm Sunderland

The above are all Club National races which are open to 9 years and over (2004 born)

Speaking of racing, it might be worth having a presentation on ski racing in the UK so parents have a better understanding of it, and how it operates. Are you interested???? If so letme know and I will sort something out over the next month or so.
