Ever since the Bass races in Landgraaf began Hemel have won the Best overall ski club trophy .
The Landgraaf BASS races are in Holland on the 4th and 5th May . Snowworld is a huge indoor facility with FIS quality race courses , a 6 man chair lift and an alpine bar on the actual slope . The Landgraaf hotel is attached to the slope and facilities include a fitness suite , outside
toboggan run and a go ape type climbing area .
This set of races are subject to BASS points – BASS pointsd are points gained during alpine races . For anyone moving into the Under 14 age category this is an ideal race to attend to prevent you from starting at the back of the pack during the alpine season .
The Landgraaf races are suitable for all age groups and accomodate from the under 10 age group up to the masters .
With an increasing number of Hemel members venturing to races further afield we are
considering a few options with regards to the 2014 BASS races but would like feedback on who would be interested . Once we have established interest we will then look into hiring larger vehicles to get everyone over there .
The aim would be to leave early saturday morning with collection points at Hemel , possibly south Mimms services and then one other stop nearer to the tunnel . We would then train
Saturday afternoon for 2 hours , have a feedback session , and then race for Sunday and Monday . Once the races are completed on Monday we would travel back .
As an approximate guideline we estimate the cost would be from £275.00 to £360.00 depending on numbers .
If you are interested could you please email me by Friday 28th Feb on firstname.lastname@example.org
The details I would need to know are as follows :
Number of people in your party total
Number of racers
Would you use your own transport or hop on the Hemel Bus
Would you be staying in the hotel or would you prefer to find your own accomodation
If anyone wants to have a chat about the races please feel free to come and find me at ski
