This weekend was very busy for Alpine, as well as the two race events there was also the “Coaches Conference” held at Manchester. Six ESSKiA qualifying races took place on Saturday and Sunday up and down the country. Many Hemel members took part in the events held at Welwyn, Southampton and Gloucester. The closest to us, Welwyn, saw a turn out of +30 members representing their their local schools. Some good performances. The results for these events will be published on http://esskia.co.uk in due course. The event was a team event with winning teams progressing to the finals being held at Norfolk in October.
The other event this weekend was the inaugural Lowland Indoor Snow Ski Championships held at Snow Valley in Belgium. Entries were invited from Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg and the UK. GB entered just under 30 racers. All the results can be found on http://britski.org. Notable results from the Saturday event were Anna HENDERSON, 11th overall and 5th in the U18 girls and Robert POTH 4th overall, 2nd U18 boys.
