Welwyn slope update - ERSA Champs

We have been in regular communication with Gosling centre regarding the re-opening of the slope and the readiness for the ERSA Champs on the 27th September. As of Wednesday evening they have confirmed that they expect to be allowed to re-open by the close of play this Friday.

We will confirm Friday if everything is still on track. If not and there continue to be problems we will move the race. So please be patient with us until the weekend.

Hemel Club update

As you know HEM have had the policy for a number of years that if registered with one of the HNGBs you had to change your fist club to HEM if wishing to join us for training on the snow. HSRC had a bit of a monopoly, apart from the academies, of snow training at Hemel.  At a recent committee meeting the request was made that we relax this rule and allow “other” club members to attend if they so wish.

This was duly passed so from the 14th September 2015 HSRC will accept trainees who are registered but do not wish to amend their first club.
