with Matthew Ingle in 2nd place shortly followed by Jim Gibb in 3rd. In the
ladies, Carrie Walsh was in 1st place with Sarah Campbell-Woodward in 2nd.

On Sunday, Alex again showed what he was made of and was in 1st place in
the masters with Jim Gibb in 2nd and Stuart Gillies in 3rd. Carrie Walsh
was also crown the masters ladies champion.

Well done to all who took part! The full results can be found here:

please let us know if you are planning to come.

Lastly, we have now received confirmation from Kandahar that the British
FIS Masters races will be taking place in Chatel from 16-18 March 2018.
This is a fantastic event to attend if you have never done alpine racing
before, particularly as all the commentary is in English and we usually get
a large amount of members out to this event. We will keep you posted closer
to the time with regards to training and accommodation but in the meantime,
don't forget to renew your FIS Licence before the end of the month if you
want to be included on the next seed list.

Think that's all for now. As ever, if you attend any further events over
the summer and would like to share photos etc then please feel free to send
them through and I'll add them to our website and facebook page.

Take care and hope to see you soon!
