Tri-Region Race - Welwyn, 18th October

  Updated 13th Aug

The bulletin for the Tri-Regional event being held at Welwyn on Saturday 18th October 2014 is now available. Please contact Sue Vale if you wish to compete in the event for LSERSA region, including the racer's name, gender, club, year of birth and age category by Thursday 4th September.

Teams will be selected after that date based on fastest LSERSA racers as in previous years in consultation with the LSERSA Regional Coach. In previous years we have had trophy winners in all categories and all age ranges so everyone has an equal chance in the competition so it would be great to see as many of you as possible competing. To enter a full set of teams we will require 40 racers and some reserves, so we look forward to hearing from you.

The last LSERSA Regional race is being held on Sunday 19th October at Welwyn so why not enter and make a weekend of racing the last races of the 2014 season.

Change of venue - 19th October

IMPORTANT CHANGE OF VENUE - BROMLEY RACE - 19th OCTOBER

LSERSA have unfortunately had to move the venue of our last race of the season on Sunday 19th October 2014. The race was scheduled to be held at Bromley but has now been moved to Welwyn.

This is the day after the tri-regional race, which is also being held at Welwyn, so hopefully will not cause too much inconvenience and may even enable you to make a weekend of ski racing in one place.

Important Notice to ALL Racers
Due to the quantity of unsportsmanlike behaviour at dry slope races following gate faults, ranging from carrying on to cross the Finish Line, swearing, and pole abuse, all TDs & Race Organisers have been reminded that sanctions are to be applied if behaviour contravenes competition rules. Please be aware that this could ultimately lead to the sanction of 'suspension from events' (ICR 223.3.2).

If you know of any LSERSA skier who has done well anywhere, or have any other news that is suitable for publication here, please email Dom Wakeling.


Skiing

It's ecstasy, anguish, joy and despair.
It's part of our history.
It's part of our country and will be part of our future.
It's theatre, art, war and love.
It should be predictable, but never is.
It's a feeling that can't be explained but we spend our lives explaining it.
It's our religion. We do not deny it, we do not apologise for it.
 
We know how you feel about it because we feel the same.
