Only three years ago it seemed like it was a nigh on impossible dream that the UK would have a nordic skier who was skiing at world cup level. Well things have changed a lot recently with club member Alex Standen joining that elite group which now contains three club members.

I recently attended a course on child protection run by Aberdeenshire Council. One of the subjects which came up was codes of conduct for club members.
This was raised at a recent comittee meeting and proved to be a very conterversial subject. Some people thought it was a good idea, others saw it as part of the onslaught of bureaucracy that is engulfing society.
I’d be interested to hear comments from club members, should we have a code of conduct and if so what should it contain? Please use this posting to share your views….
