SASA Winter League 2 - RESULTS

posted 8 Dec 2014, 12:49 by Matt Williams   [ updated 9 Dec 2014, 12:19 ]

Results from Sunday 7th December's race are now available on the Winter League 2014 - 2015 page.

Message from Lesley below:

"Well done today to all racers and parents. With gremlins in the electronics and unsympathetic weather against us your patience was appreciated. A particular thanks to the racers who came to let us know that the circumstances hadn't affected their enjoyment; much appreciated.

While the extra warm up time might not have been planned, it helped a few of our newer races and possibly even some of the others, to achieve times in our 3 runs.


On run 3 we have an electronic time for every racer.

On run 1 and 2 we have given each racer the best time recorded by our team with the stopwatches. (and a big thank you to that team for helping)

Those times are consistent enough with the electronic time, for every racer, that we are confident we have given you the fairest outcome possible today.

I hope you enjoyed the mince pies

Have a good Christmas and see you all at the next one."

SASA Winter League 2014 Race 1 - START LIST

posted 14 Nov 2014, 12:14 by Matt Williams   [ updated 14 Nov 2014, 12:54 ]

The START LIST for Sunday's Winter League event is now available.

We now have 54 starters, which I think is a record, so thank you to everyone for your support.  The start list shows up to six runs, but with 54 starters I suspect we will probably be looking at four runs as our target; we will do what we can in the time.

More info on the Winter League 2014 - 2015 page.  Fingers crossed for good weather and don't forget the CAKES.

SASA Winter League Update

The first race of this season's Winter League series is on Sunday 16th November at Southampton Alpine Centre, from 0900 to 1100.

Entries are still open but we will be preparing the Start List on Friday evening (14/11/2014) so please endeavour to get any entries in by then.

The current acceptance list can be found on the Winter League 2014 - 2015 page, as can the rules of entry.

For those of you who are new to the event, the slope will be open for a short practice session from 0900 and we will endeavour to get the timed runs underway by around 0930 with aim of getting as many runs as we can in before 1100.  Bib collection / registration will be from 0830.  Directions to the slope are on the How to Find Us page.

We will be running the traditional and ever-popular SASA CAKE SALE during the event.  Any cake donations for this would be much appreciated; all proceeds will go to club funds

Volunteers to help run the race are always welcome.  If you are able to assist in any way please make yourself known on the day.
