2013/2014 - the season of the Big Dig

More than 30 people showed up for the club’s annual general meeting at Kendal’s Brewery Arts Centre on Friday. President Richard Leafe reflected on last season which featured the most snow anyone has seen on Raise for at least the last 40 years, resulting in around 35 days of skiing.


Club treasurer Chris Chirnside and secretary John Burrows also presented brief reports before everyone headed to the bar and food for the evening’s main event – winter sports films, yakkin’ and chattin’.

Annual general meetings are often dry occasions, so to liven things up this year the Ski Club AGM will also be a social evening. The formalities are only expected to take about half an hour.

The rest of the evening will include a slide/film show to celebrate last season’s sliding plus the work behind the scenes; and a Q&A session about the club and its 78-year history – plus a free drink and nibbles.

Just the thing to get you in the mood for the forthcoming season now that everything is ready to go up on Raise.

Proceedings will start at 7.30 for 8pm at the Warehouse Cafe in the Brewery Arts Centre, 122A Highgate, Kendal, LA9 4HE. If you have any good pics or videos from last season please email them or a link for them to Mike Sweeney.
