Next weekend the final two Club Nationals in ERSA will be taking place at Norfolk, Saturday 16th, and Ipswich, Sunday 17th. Both venues are always popular and a good day is always had by those taking part. The Norfolk CN will start at 9.30am and the Ipswich will be starting at the normal 8.30am. We are doing this so that people traveling a distance to Norfolk do not need to have an overnight stay on Friday. This worked very well at the recent Welwyn race.
Attached is a document which has been put together by BSS (Dr Jenny Shute and Paddy Mortimer) about possible changes in the future. It is a discussion document and feedback is welcome. Andrea Grant, email@example.com, is collating feedback for SSE or alternatively if you would prefer send it to myself at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward it on. Feedback is required by the end of May.
In previous years both the Hemel and Milton Keynes summer league races have been extremely well supported and thank you for that. As many of you know we are very constrained on time we have the indoor slopes in comparison to the outdoor slopes. While the races run very efficiently and we generally keep to time we are also aware that with increased numbers taking part in the region we will again have a lot of people looking to take part in both races. Last year we had 218 racers enter the Hemel summer league and this was a challenge.
Tonight Jasmin Taylor from Ipswich, featured on the BBC Look East programme talking about her Telemark skiing over the past winter. She trains over at Hemel where there is now a club. Watch the video here.
The first club national in ERSA takes place tomorrow at Milton Keynes and there is a full entry taking part.

7 am, Sunday 22nd April at Gosling Sports Centre, some dedicated diehards were already hard at work erecting gazebos and setting up the BBQ. The sky was blue, no rainclouds in sight – it was going to be a good day.
