The initial calendar for our events this year has been pulled together and loaded to the main club site – a quick view of just the Ski section events can be seen by following the link below. Why not add it as a bookmark on the home screen of your phone so it is always to hand.
Happy New Year !
The latest version of the calendar for the coming year is now available here
Please always check back here for the latest version to check for any last minute changes and restrictions before heading to the lake !
A huge thanks to all those who pitched in to tackle the many jobs around the lake. Rumour has it Martin Ellis is still stuck in the Bungalow loft space threading the cable for the new patio floodlight !
The Committee, along with the help of members Andy Gilroy and Peter Worth, have also worked several weekends now on renovating the top end Slalom hut jetties. The job was far bigger than expected as it was not just the timber decking that had rotted through in places but also the scaffolding support structure underneath had rusted through after 30+ years in water ! We are still not finished but as you can see from the photos we are nearly there.
Thanks again for all the help provided, it saves £000’s of external contract costs which otherwise would have to be passed onto your Ski Section fees.
Hi All !
Those of you keen to get this year’s scrutineering and camping weekends sorted will be pleased to know the 2017 Ski Calendar is now available at the link below. This will be updated during the year as dates for any wakeboard and kneeboard coaching days become known as well as any additional events on the lake are arranged so check back regularly !
Payment can also be made by Paypal by clicking on the link below:
The club will be hosting bonfire night again this year with the Clubhouse bar open and the BBQ fired up (bring your own food)
This will obviously cause great damage to a boat if driven over not to mention serious injury to a skier so please keep away from the slalom course area until we get chance to fix this hopefully during the work party this coming weekend.
Most of you should have received the email below that was sent out by the Watersports Club Management advising of the triathlon taking place at the lake this weekend.
Can we still ski ?
You won’t be able to ski on Sunday morning until mid morning as swimmers will be in the ski area of the lake from 8am before cycling and then running. The car park and grass areas will also be a bit congested for a while so drive carefully and park considerately avoiding blocking any routes through to the changeover areas for competitors etc
Check with the Officer of the Day or local marshall before launching to confirm the water is now safe to use.
Be aware that the gates will be open and there will be public access on Saturday (organisers) and Sunday (competitors and public) so be sure to lock trailers and cars and don’t leave any valuable wetsuits and ski equipment out. If you use the bungalow and kitchen please shut the door behind you.
This is an important source of income for the Club (and keeps your membership fees down) as well as being great fun to watch on the day so thank you for your support.
