Here are the results for last weekend’s rollerski races. The normal championships was run on Saturday, with a couple of extra events on Sunday for fun.
Despite a very wet start Huntly managed to produce fine weather for Saturday’s racing. The turn out was good with a crop of new faces from the Kids club and also some new visitors from the Army.
The races were split into Senior/Veterans (10 laps), Under 18/U16 (7 laps), Under 14 /U12 5 laps and Novice 3 laps of the outer loop.
Ben Wooley took the top position in the Seniors Race, with Hector Cowie narrowly pipping Sandy Wishart into Second Place.

U14 saw Brodie Murray coming out on top of an impressive field containing, Jack Nicholls, Oliver Newmand and Fergus Newman. Calumn Cooper took the U12 Male title.
In the Novice Race David Massie posted the fastest boys time and Cairngorms Katy Matthew took the girls’ title.

Hytti, the new hut for the Clash is finished. This was carried out as part of the EU Leader initiative, the design came from Finland where Huntly has partnership with the town of Juankoski. A group of Finns came over last month to share their experience in constructing these huts.
Thanks to everbody who contributed there time in the construction, and especially Hilary for her trip to Finland which started it all off.
We couldn’t pass over the chance to make a special mention of thanks to Steve Young and Dave Whitehead for donating their professional skills in construction of the new building.
