FOUR BSA TRAINEES MAKE THE 2018 WINTER OLYMPIC TEAM
Congratulations to Dave Ryding, Charlie Guest, Laurie Taylor and Alex Tilley, who have been selected for the GB Alpine ski team to the PyeongChang Games. The British Ski Academy played a major part in the development of Charlie, Alex and Laurie. Less so with Dave but we're proud to have given him a leg up onto the national team. These heroes and heroines of GB Alpine will receive an equal share of one third of the auction fundraiser. Looks like that should breach £2000 for each of the athletes. MANY THANKS to everyone who has contributed with donations and auction bids.
Bidding closes tomorrow night on any lots that have already been staked out by keen-eyed well-wishers of the BSA and of our GB Alpine Team. The fundraiser will stay open to facilitate donations and there are some auction lots not yet snapped up... Take another look. The BSA uniform is offered at less than cost. And there's a video of the Chel-ski set up for the Mollie King lot .
Ask4events are hosting our online fundraiser, we have some cracking auction lots, direct link to the auction site and information on lots here. We are raising money for the BSA and for some of our top Alpine competitors. The auction is now live and closes the day after the night slalom in Schladming. Support your local ski racers.
The ASC will
be held in Pila/Crevacol Italy with three days of racing for bairns (U10/U12) and
four days for U14/16. Bairns will have a stubby slalom, combi and giant slalom.Race entry is now open
For those teams and families coming into the valley we recommend putting up in Aosta.It is most likely the races will be held in Pila, with lift access from
the town, andCrevacol is an unhurried, 30 minute drive.
