Roller Ski News – 21st May 2007

Just a quick email this time round...

DORNEY COURSES

A reminder that we've a 1-day course at Dorney this Sunday, and another on 10th June. Both are suitable for beginners and intermediates, and this weekend's course will also be suitable for more advanced skiers, with Alan Eason leading.

Book at http://www.rollerski.co.uk/events3.html

I've also posted a couple of new dates in July and August (to fit in around Dorney's regatta calendar).

WEDNESDAY EVENINGS IN HYDE PARK

It's worth plugging our Wednesday evening class sessions in Hyde Park. Going on throughout the summer, these are a great opportunity to get out and keep going.

Feel free to come along and join in whenever suits. We meet at the usual Triangle Car Park in Hyde Park at 18.15. See http://www.rollerski.co.uk/class.html to book.

ROLLERSKI RACES

The next London rollerski races are on 22nd July - it's well worth putting the dates into your diary as these are great fun, and exciting to watch or take part in.

I've now posted the results of the first two rollerski races in London on the race calendar, http://rollerski.co.uk/ns024.html (click on 'Results' by the races). Congratulations to novices Kwasi Debrah, Jaana Koponnen and Michelle Marshall who took part.

Also coming up are races in Huntly, Scotland and Durham, which you can see on the race calendar.

Instructor Mary Wray has set up her own website with useful information and details of her nordic walking and rollerski instruction.

Well worth a look is a good story on how Mary came a surprise third in Sweden's Skate Vasaloppet this year -
