Hi everyone !
We are heading to Kilternan to show off what we learnt in Val D’Isere on the 8th of March. As always we are getting the bus from The Quad at 4, this brings us to directly to Kilternan were we get all the gear needed. Then after we get the bus back to Galway and of course have the banter on the way back with a few refreshments. Everything will only cost 30€. There are limited places so sign up fast not be be disappointed.
There is a slight difference this time, this time it will be on a Friday because we are heading up for Freestyle Friday ! This means there will be kickers and rails out, which is unreal craic. There will be no lessons but if ye come along surely a member of the committee will be glad to help you improve your downhill or freestyle skill.
Sign up at the socs box quick! We are only bringing a 25 seater so places will sell out.
It will be a great way to brush up before the IV’s, which are only a month later !
