You may also be aware that Kandahar have sadly stepped down from organising the British FMC races for the future, but we at the BMSC have stepped in and will be organising the event from next season onwards, so it is exciting times for us as a club and also Masters racing in general!

The dates have been scheduled for 1-3 Feb 2019 and we will keep you posted with details once they have all been finalised.

British Masters Champs; Chatel 16-18 March 2018

** FAO British Masters Racers re British Masters Champs:

I hope you are all well and those of you in the UK aren't having too much bother with the snow!

Just following on from my message yesterday, I know that a number of you have been having issues in contacting Kandahar to confirm your entries for the British Masters Ski Championships which are due to take place in Chatel from 16-18 March.

Therefore, if you are planning to go please could you email Judy Reid with what races you are planning to attend at (or send her a private message on Facebook) and she will compile a list and make sure that your entries are sent onto the Chief of Race Richard Ellis.

Training will also be available from the Tuesday before the races on the Race Piste and there will be a 50% discount on all lift passes for competitors on the training days before the event. For anyone aged 75 or over, lift passes are free. If you are planning to attend, then Judy will also make sure that your names are passed onto Richard Ellis so that you can obtain your discounted lift passes.

This will be the 30th anniversary event and although this years event will not be part of the FIS Masters Cup series, it is still looking to be a fantastic event with a Super-G on Fri 16 March, Slalom on Sat 17 March with a Masters Party/Prizegiving and GS on Sunday.

A full copy of the Programme can be found below. 

Kind regards,

BMSC Secretary
