We have heard on the grapevine that Alan Brown, our Club Secretary, has won the Ski Club of Great Britain "Rep of the Year" award. Alan reps for much of the season each year and although we say "lucky you" there is a lot more to the job than meets the eye. Even taking a group out for a happy day's skiing is not always easy! Well done Alan.
