Snow could not have timed it better.....40 to 50cm dump over the weekend and our race Week followed. Most of the week we had fantastic conditions, although the weather did deteriant towards week’s end. Nonetheless we all had a great week with many interesting stories to tell, certainly more interesting then my fall out of the start gate in the GS.

This was another one of those great days....Rained all day!!!
Warm weather created soft snow and anyone who had a bib number beyond 30 was skiing in 60cm deep ruts. There were more falls in this race than I have ever seen, not to mention that six of our team hit the deck.
This caused a few concerns heading to the Presentation as we had no idea about how many of the other teams had fallen in the really tough conditions. I am not too sure whether SASC won or the other teams lost, but we were winners by 5 points nonetheless.
SASC has a great team of youth and mature racers and congratulations to all for a fantastic effort on such an horrific day of racing.
Stand outs were:
Jenny Owens – fastest female
Craig Branch & Scott Kneller 2nd & 3rd respectively
Charlotte Murphy 3rd fastest female
SASC fastest team of 5 – Craig Branch; Scott Kneller; Jenny Owens; Matt Coffey; AJ Jones
