Avon Club Championships 2012

Wed 30 May 2012

2012 Club Championship announced.

The Weston Counties Ski Club have invited Avon Ski Club to join in their annual Dry Ski championships on Saturday, 7th July at the Gloucester Ski Centre.
The idea is to hold a combined event in which both clubs can race together, overall results will be produced, and each club will award its own trophies. This way it will be both a friendly inter-club event as well as 2 separate club events.
The format of the day is expected to be a Slalom followed by a Giant Slalom with the best 2 of 3 runs to count in each event. A Combined event will be calculated from those racers who successfully complete at least 2 timed runs in both the Slalom and the GS so there will effectively be 3 competitions to go for.

The provisional schedule is:

  • 09:30 Racer registration and bid allocation
  • 10:00 Slalom Course Inspection (no skiing through the course allowed)
  • 10:30 Start Slalom; 3 runs, best 2 to count
  • 12:00 Giant Slalom Course Inspection (no skiing through the course allowed)
  • 12:30 Start Giant Slalom; 3 runs, best 2 to count
  • 14:00 Prize Giving (possibly followed a BBQ)
The cost will be £15 per racer.
Weston Counties would also be very grateful for any willing volunteers to undertake some of the race officials' roles. To give you an idea these roles include Start Referee, Finish Referee, Chief Gate Marshall, Timekeeper, Announcer, Official Photographer, Official Camcorder Operator, etc.
If you would like to volunteer as a race official please speak to one of the committee.
