Before winning the prize Lou had already paid a deposit for a set of skikes and poles and she has decided to still go ahead with that purchase to enable family and friends to join her skiking. Lou is a member of University Ski Club which has a number of members who are skikers and their enthusiasm for skiking convinced Lou to join Skike Force. Why not come along yourself to a beginner session and have a try of skikes. We have sessions on most weekends and Wednesday mornings. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Len at 03 9467 8039 and we will let you know times. Bookings are nessesary.
Where to go and what to bring: Westerfolds Park Templestowe – 1st car park off the Porter St entrance. Bring a helmet and gloves. Also wear socks that come up to your calves or pants that come down to them. Also bring (if you have them) a water bottle in a water bottle holder and knee and elbow protectors.
