The AE Ski Championships took place this weekend. Saturday was the individual slalom event and Sunday the Club Team event. Congratulations and well done to all those taking part. Also the organisers thanked Andrea, start referee and Steve, timing and calcs for their valuable help. Hemel had a number of entries in the slalom and entered two teams into the Club event. A strong field of 164 including the U12 event started at Norfolk on early on the Saturday morning.
The first course including the stubbies for the U12 was set by Ali Morton from the BSA. He set 16 gates with 15 turns. The second course of 16 gates was set by Richard Lambden from GLO.
The U14 and older inspected the course first, the poles were then replaced with stubbies and the u12 inspected. The U12 then had there first run. Hemel had no entries in the U12 event. The stubbies were then replaced with full gates and the main event started with the female event. A misleading course that need a good course inspection especially as Norfolk had replaced the bottom third of the slope with new matting. This made the slope very grippy. Hemel had a number if members competing in the event. Our highest placed racer was Charlotte TAPSELL who finished 19 overall and 3rd in the U14 group. Eleanor SCRANAGE HARRISON was 6th in the same group. Unfortunately Nicole Shering, Issy Trew, Amy Peterson and Carys Boty all got caught and dnf. Hannah Cole after a decent first run was dsq Run2.
In the very tough male event Harry BOTY was36 overall and 6th in the U18. Toby CASE was 3rd in the U14, 39 overall. Byron APPLETON was just behind him in 7th in the U14. Tony Sharp dnf Run 1 as did Charlie Humphries.
Sunday saw the club event, our teams comprised of Chartlotte TAPSELL, Nicole SHERING, Byron APPLETON, Issy TREW, Harry BOTY, Carys BOTY, Toby CASE and Charlie HUMPHREYS. This event has some very strong teams entering and we wish all the best to our Hemel Teams. Results posted shortly.
