Hope you have all had a great Easter and those that have been away skiing have had a great break.

Its back to business at Gordon Skiers this week with various training opportunities and events coming up, details are as below.

Wednesday Nights
Wednesday night training starts this week, 19th April and will be running for 9 weeks from 7-9pm at Alford with training for the first hour followed by 3 timed runs with results then being accumulated to form a league. Cost is £12 for the session, payable on the night. For this Wednesday please email racing@gordonskiers.com to note your attendance.

Sunday Evenings
We have managed to secure Alford for 5 Sunday evening sessions running from this Sunday 23rd from 4.30-6.30pm. This is open to all members and will be a good block of training sessions prior to the Summer races but also to keep the ‘ski legs’ going over the summer.  We will send out a sign up form for the sessions shortly but the charge is £12 a session.

Training Trip to Braehead
On Sunday 30th April, the club are heading to Braehead for a 3hour training session in the afternoon with 2hours in gate training.  Plan will be to depart Westhill at 9am and arrive home about 9pm. Transport, lunch, training and lift ticket are all provided for the total cost of £40- the club is subsidising the transport and coaching costs. Non-skiing parents/siblings would be asked to pay £10. Please email racing@gordonskiers.com to book a place.
