LRNSC 1hr FT roller ski race

Hello Dominic

After a great 1 hour race [see the results and photos] here's a reminder of our upcoming activities, starting with a Club walk from Henley on Saturday 15/7 ...

Sunday 23 July - AGM, training/practice, classic handicap race

At Hillingdon Cycle Circuit the morning will kick off with a training group session [or practice on your own if you prefer], the final session of the beginners' course and finish with a Club classic handicap race.

Our Annual General  Meeting for LRNSC members follows at 1330 in the Clubhouse and you can see the Agenda here. All members are invited and it's your opportunity to hear about and contribute to how the Club is run.

6/8 Club kayak tour on the Thames

This kayak tour will explore the iconic sights of west London from the Thames starting at Kew Bridge.  It will include coaching and is suitable for beginners and those with previous kayaking experience.- read more details.

If you're interested but didn't register for this last month, please contact the organiser, Jeremy Price to check availability.

LRNSC 2018 cross country ski trips - sign up now

It may be warm and sunny outside [or not!] but it's definitely time to plan your next ski trip.  There are a range of Club ski trips being planned and organisers need to know if you're interested now.
Don't miss out - our Club trips are usually oversubscribed. Members who register their interest early have priority when the time comes to confirm participation.  [And you do need to be a LRNSC member].

There's still time to register your interest and you can do this via links from the respective web pages.

28/1-4/2 Exploring the Aosta Valley 
A chalet-based, small group led by Glennis Dore, who knows the area really well, will explore the different cross country skiing areas of this scenic Italian region.

28/1-5/2 Obertilliach + Dobbiaco-Cortina ski race
We're teaming up with Alan Eason of Totally Nordic to offer a top level coaching week for all levels of skier with optional Dobbiaco-Cortina ski races.  The 50km classic is a Visma Ski Classic race and there's a 30km skate race too.  It's the chance to take your skiing to another level and race if you wish.

11-19/2 Dobbiaco + Gsiesertal Lauf  
A hotel-based holiday organised by Paddy and Hilary Field who have led many successful Club trips.  You'll have the opportunity to discover the lovely trails around Dobbiaco and participate in the nearby Gsiesertal Lauf.

In addition there are two recreational trips to Finland based on Inghams packages where early booking is recommended:

25/2-4/3 Levi
Levi is the largest ski resort in Finland with 230km of cross country trails plus winter walking routes and downhill pistes. This half-board hotel-based holiday will be led by Debbie Carpenter.  Tuition is available at the local ski school.

11-18/3 Akaslompolo
This centre [aka Yllas] has an extensive network of trails through the rolling Lapland terrain.  You can choose your type of accommodation and travel route on this trip organised by Gerard Ollier who has led many trips to the area.

Enjoy the summer, come to the AGM, plan your snow skiing and enter our next race - our organisers really appreciate your early responses.

Thanks for your support.
