Roller skiers in LRNSC's 1 hour race

LRNSC Update - July

Hello Alan

Will East London host Britain's biggest ski slope in 2015?  Mayor Boris Johnson thinks so, and will there be room for Nordic skiing?   Hopefully but in the meantime let's enjoy roller skiing!  Here's a update on Club activities, plus news from Snowsport England and others you may be interested in.

Roller ski practice Sunday 4 August

Come to the next session at Hillingdon Cycle Circuit from 1300-1630 - it's a good opportunity to train and catch up with others in the Club house afterwards.  There's a small charge towards the track hire and you get free tea/coffee.  Read more

Kayakers Olly Hicks & Patrick Winterton

Kayaks on the Shetland bus

It's always good to hear what cross country skiers get up to when they're not on snow or rollers, particularly when it's a 'first' like kayaking from Scotland to Norway! 

Patrick Winterton, well known in the Nordic skiing world as a Eurosport commentator and Senior SSE Tutor, has just succeeded in doing this with adventurer Olly Hicks.  They're raising money for charity - read more about their difficult crossing,

Outdoor gear sale

Enjoy other outdoor pursuits?  There's a sale of equipment that belonged to the late Pete Linskey, a former Club member, and proceeds go to a Scout training fund in his memory to cover first aid, climbing and kayaking. 

 Our Membership Secretary is selling this gear for Abbots Langley Scouts - the sale includes climbing, water-based and general camping equipment, quite a lot in child sizes but there are other useful general items.  They are all listed on the document on the Scouts' website and in this article on our site.  Any questions please contact Pauline using this link.
