London Region Classic

Hello Dominic

After the success of the Club's London Region Classic race, we've got lots more good events coming up this autumn:

Next roller ski races

There's an LRSNC members' handicap race tomorrow Sunday 9/10, the Wessex sprints are on 16/10 and our 4 hour event finishes the month's roller skiing on Saturday 29 October - race entry will close one week before on 22 October.  Enter online now.

Ice skating at Somerset House - last 3 tickets available

If you'd like to join the Club group for an ice skating session in the stunning surroundings of Somerset House on Saturday 17 December from 3-4pm contact Jeremy now.  Deadline to reserve and pay for these tickets is tomorrow.

Weekend workout walks

If you fancy a change from roller skiing or you're not a roller skier, put 22 and 23 October in your diary.
On Saturday there's a Club walk around Ampthill, and on Sunday a nordic walking for cross country skiers afternoon around Burnham Beeches.
Take your pick or even better go for both.

Annual dinner & guest speaker

On Saturday 12 November our annual dinner will take place at the Brasserie Blanc, Southbank.  To mark the Club's 35th anniversary we'll be joined by guest speaker Juha Viljamaa the current President of the Worldloppet organisation and President of Lahti Ski Club, organisers of the Finlandia Worldloppet. 

This promises to be a memorable evening for LRNSC members so make your menu choices and book your place[s] now - numbers are limited so it will be first come first served.

The deadline for bookings and payment is 31st October unless we reach capacity before then.

A spin on the fastest Velodrome track in the world?

We're investigating the idea of a group party session at the Olympic Velodrome on a Friday evening in spring 2017, bikes & helmets are included, and you get an hour's training followed by 20 minutes of timed laps using the big screens and timing equipment.  It would cost £50 per person so we need to know if enough people would like to go.

Join in and make the most of these events!
All the best
