14-26 FEBRUARY 2014

Avon Ski Club will be going to Borovets at half term for race training/timed runs etc. Due to the costs and the logistics we will be leaving on Friday 14th February, and returning on Weds 26th February. This does involve taking a few days of school, but we will be running evening study sessions with Peter Kennel, to cover any work/revision that needs to be done, and he is happy to liaise with any schools as to anything they require, as we are aware of exams coming up.

The cost will be approx £800 for 11 days on snow. We are going from Heathrow with BA, flight prices are likely to increase so making a decision sooner rather than later is a good idea. If anyone wishes to pay the extra and come back early that's not a problem. We will (local circumstances being taken in to account) training/timing but also following the new ethos of BSS and SSE doing as much 'all mountain/terrain' skiing as well. Usually the courses are taken down around lunchtime due to numbers on the slopes. This is a training trip so it will be early starts, and we will ski hard.

As its 11 days on the snow we may well take a day off in the middle if it looks like people (Peter and Fraser) are getting a bit tired!! There's always the dark side to try!!

If you are interested please let Fraser know ASAP.
