So now I've had time to catch up on the hours of sleep I've missed, here's the first of many blog posts getting you all up to speed on all the deets of what went down.
These events wouldn't happen without you guys, the riders, being involved and dedicated, but to lay on events for you we need a ton of volunteers:
First, a huuuge thankyou to the campsite volunteers: we got our deposit back for the hut so you guys have done an amazing job on the tidying front: especially
Sabina, Lizzie, Alfie, Ed, Ben
But also all those others who mucked in. This is the first time in YEARS we've got it back, so a very sincere thank you!
Secondly thankyou to the sign up desk crew: Hannah, Louise for their work all weekend, Richie and Lana for their Saturday shift. Louise and Hannah don't even skate, so we're really lucky they put up with us and lend a hand.
Third, for all the regular volunteers: Brianne Collective (Tom, Ry, Cam, Robbie) for helping out all over, Tiarna, Dan, Louis, Andy driving the slalom ramp van, Dan ravenhall and Vince for being there just in case, and Luca for doing finish line duty with Lana.
Finally, Harry Phelps, Jamie Tharp, Jorge Higgins for being most vocally judgemental for all style based stuff and for starting racers, and of course Mmedo, Louis, the absent Sam and the fantastic Rob Ashby for the slalom organising
