Latest Ravens News

Hi Folks
Just a few dates for the diary coming up!
The last Winter Series Race is next Wednesday 4th April. We will get off to another prompt start and aim to get through 3 runs again like last month. The success of the race depends on the help and cooperation of the parents so please get there early and make yourself available to help out where possible.
The Ravens Summer BBQ and Winter Series Presentation is on Friday 24th June at Ramside Hall Golf Club. The evening will start from 7pm and will include BBQ, Disco and Presentation. Tickets are £7.50 per person and will be available to buy from Anil from next Wednesday. Based on how popular the Xmas Night was im sure it will ber a success so get tickets early!
We will be holding a parents evening on Wednesday 11th May in the Heritage room hosted by Marie Lee. Marie will be available to give parents a little more insight into the way in which the race scene works and how you and your child can get involved in racing. She will cover involvement in Club Nationals and the seed sytem for Gran Prix's as well as how to get registered for the forth coming Club National at Silksworth.
The Ravens Club National and Gran Prix weekend is fast approaching and is on Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th June. The coaches will be talking to both the skiers and the parents over the coming weeks and will where apporpriate be advising you whether you should consider entering. On the whole i think most of the skiers at Ravens are at a level where they should consider entering but if you want more information please speak to your relevant coach. Several of the coaches will be available on both days to give advice and help with course inspection and we are looking to get as many local skiers as possible to enter.
I think that covers the main things for now but feel free to get in touch!
