Amateur Inter-Club Championships 2018

The AICC is a fabulous and  relatively recent annual event which was founded in 2008 by Cleeves Palmer of the Kandahar Ski Club.
In 2017 eighteen DHO members raced in the AICC races in Alpbach, (Austria). Some of us, wishing to improve our racing technique, had been to a racing camp in Kuhtal in the hope of getting better at this racing lark!  Welcomed by absolutely dreadful weather and constant snow and poor visibility, we slogged up and down the course set for us and some of us were near to despair because of the seemingly endless poor conditions. The teaching was excellent and gave us sufficient encouragement to persevere! The mist finally cleared and we suddenly thought we were stars!
There were no DHO women’s teams because of a lack of numbers and so two of us from theMoore family skied in the men’s teams to make up the required numbers! It worked out but it will be much better next year if we can have at least one women’s team in each category! Please apply all you female DHO members! It is such fun and next year the event is in the hands of the Meribel Ski Club. Meribel is a great resort. We are already planning our week which will be from 3rd or 4th March until 10th/11th March with a few days training before the racing on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th March.
Ladies please don’t be shy! If you ski reasonably well and love to be outside withlike-minded members, you will find you can race! Talk to Donna and Pete Gandy Wright who are recent converts!!
Please get in touch with me if you would like to be part of this really wonderful week of skiing and racing. We will be meeting in London sometime in the next few months and have a pre-seasonparty as we did last year in early December.
In 2019 the AICC will be hosted by the Kandahar in Murren, 2020 will be hosted by theLadies ski club in Flaine and then in 2021 DHO is hosting in Wengen. We need to get ourteams gathered together for next year and the years to come in order to rebuild our past excellent racing reputation.
I look forward to hearing from you all!!
