Bowline CC - Skiing trip to Les Arcs

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Wednesday, 2nd October 2019 @ 11:58am

Hi Bowliners,

We are thinking of doing a club ski trip to Les Arcs this coming ski season if there is enough interest. The plan is for a week long ski trip staying in self-catered group accommodation. We haven't set a date for the trip, rather we are asking for those that are interested to let us know the dates you can make. We are delibrately avoiding the half-term weeks and the week of the club winter trip.

If you're interested, please reply to this email before Monday 7th October answering the following questions:

1. Which if the following dates could you make (please delete those that you can't make)?

  • Saturday 4th Jan -> Saturday 11th Jan
  • Saturday 11th Jan -> Saturday 18th Jan
  • Saturday 18th Jan -> Saturday 25th Jan
  • Saturday 29th Feb -> Saturday 7th March
  • Saturday 14th March -> Saturday 21st March
  • Sarturday 21st March -> Saturday 28th March

2. Would you prefer to book your own flights/transfers (i.e. the club just arranges the accommodation)?

Kind regards

Andy
