A busy weekend of races. Saturday was the ERSA Final dry slope event, Sunday the ERSA Finals Snow event. This weekend also saw the BARSC Indoor Champs at Manchester. On Monday, at the Snow Centre, BISS held their Indoor Championships. In all these events Hemel had members taking part.
On Saturday the ERSA Finals event was held at Welwyn. A different format was tried, 4 runs with the best of Runs 1 & 2 added together with the best of Runs 3 & 4 to find the award winners for the day. Also the Club Team events were held and the “Super 7”, an event with 7 racers from each club, any age or gender, racing as a parallel relay. The ERSA AGM was also held between the morning and afternoon events. All in all a busy day but still finished by 1530 after a 0900 start.

Max FAIRFUL, getting a bit of practice before the Monday race finished 7th in the U12 Boys event.
