ERSA News #1 2017

Happy New Year 

Happy New Year from the ERSA Committee.  For those lucky to be in Europe or further afield on the pistes, good luck with the races and have fun? Just a quick update:  www.GBSKI.com has now become the main race information website for all GBR, SSE, SSW, SSS and commercial company races.  Why not head over have a look.  ERSA will also post details of ERSA races on this site.  Summer Race Calendar – Version 8 is now available to download here.   Alpine Race Calendar for 2016/17 Season is now available to download here. ERSA will shortly be finalising and issuing the ERSA Summer League and Club National race dates.  As we find every year, we have to work hard with clubs and slopes to schedule ERSA race dates around clear weekends already allocated to GBR and Club Nationals. We have done our best to minimise clashes.  (A provisional copy of the ERSA Race Calendar can be viewed here). Historically we have struggled to increase the number of indoor races in the Region, unfortunately, 2017 is no different.  We are working closely with The Snow Centre, Hemel and Snozone MK and will keep you all posted.  At present, we have only been able to confirm an ERSA Outdoor Championships, but watch this space…(and cross your fingers) In an effort to keep your racing costs down, ERSA Summer League Outdoor race entry will be held at £10.00 (entry prices for other races will be as advertised). The Inter Regional (dry slope) is being held in 2017 at Gloucester and ERSA would like to enter a team or two.  However, this will require a volunteer to help co-ordinate and we would welcome your help and support.

Every year ERSA needs more and more people to help at races (either on a one-off basis or more regularly if you can help), so please contact me on chair@ersa.co.uk  ERSA also needs more volunteers to help with Safeguarding, with SSE running Time to List Courses in Milton Keynes and Norwich later this Month.   We would recommend that you sign up to the Snowsport England Newsletters to keep up to date with all the SSE News.

If you have any events to promote please email chair@ersa.co.uk. For Alpine, GBR, SSE, SSW, SSS and Other Races please click here. For ERSA Region Races please click here.
