July Meteor Slalom Challenge @ 6th Aug 2018

Along with the stunning weather during the month there were some stunning slalom results.
A total of 10 members took part in the July slalom challenge.

Most of us have to continually practice and work hard at trying to conquer the 6 buoy course, but for some it seems all they have to do is turn up!
Jason dropped in for a couple of skis and set a superb score of 4@16m, while Robert, welcome back, clocked up 4@52 on his first outing.

Lizzy continues to scare the buoys/boys (a play on words - honestly). Robby has made steady progress each month and scored 2@55.

For some the opportunity of shortening the rope is tantalisingly close. Colin scored a season's best to date of 4@55, while Des, for the second consecutive month achieved 6@55. But for Jonathan it is his normal rope length and every score was at 16m, but still working on a plan as to how and get past the snag at buoy 4.

Two members scored on the 14m line. Ivan, a slow burner this year, scored 1@14m-55 while Barry, who wins the consistency prize for the month scored 2@14m-55 - every time, 7 times in all!

Rory started off the month with a score of 6@55 but seemed to be stuck on this until the 27th of the month when he advanced to 3@58. Not content with this he went out on the last day of the month and set a cracking score of 3@16m58.

So the Meteor Slalom Supremo for the month of July is Rory Rankin, well done and well done to all.

The slalom challenge is open to all members no matter what standard, so have a go and post your scores on the sheet in the clubhouse.
