Freestyle Training Weekend Report

Freestyle Training Weekend Report

The weekend started out to be a closed-in wet and snowy affair, with not much hope of getting on the hill. After much expert debating and surmising, the team at the lodge decided we may get a window of opportunity for the event on the Sunday.

After a night of belittling the election hopefuls and destroying the dress sense of some of our prospective leaders, we arrived at a morning of fresh snow, cleared roads and keen athletes. The Sunday morning drive up the road was filled with fairy land pictures of fresh snow on the trees lining the road before the mountain opened up in all its glory. What we all viewed was akin to a free rider’s paradise; fresh snow everywhere.

Presidents Weekend – Diner en Blanc, Saturday 18 October Ohakune Lodge

Ohakune: Saturday, October 18 to Sunday, October 19, 2014

President’s Weekend is an open invitation to all adult members - no special invites are issued.  It’s a ‘kid free’ event combined with the senior club champs.  The weekend does have a theme, a fabulous dinner with wine, on Saturday night.  The ‘races’ are strictly amateur and the course is set to ensure that even a ‘first timer’ going through the gates doesn’t feel too daunted.  There are trophies up for grabs for both males & females in age groups as well as the overall club champions.
