Barrett & Co Solicitors LLP were among the sponsors of the 3rd Berkshire Race Squad School Ski Race which took place on Saturday 2nd March 2019 at the John Nike Bracknell Ski Slope.
The event was attended by 65 school age children from across Berkshire and the surrounding area and was designed to introduce ski racing to racers with limited racing experience. Many of those taking part were competing in their very first competition.
Berkshire Race Squad, which organised the event, train at the Bracknell Ski Slope every Friday throughout the year and have members racing at both a regional and a national level. The older racers are encouraged to get involved in assisting the coaches at training sessions and some have gone on to take their ski instructor qualifications. The Club has also seen many former members racing at University level. It is now hoped that the 2019 event will encourage the next generation of ski racers to join the Club and continue racing after the event.
Barrett & Co Solicitors sponsored the second and third place trophies in the Primary and Secondary age groups and well as the Barrett & Co Solicitors Effort Awards, which were given to a primary and secondary school team which had not finished in the top 3 of the team event. The Effort Awards were given to teams who had shown good sportsmanship and a positive attitude to the event. The winners were Pyrford Church of England School in the Primary category, and Maiden Erlegh School in the Secondary category. Dispute Resolution Solicitor Chris Miller, who is also Vice Chair of Berkshire Race Squad, was on hand to present the awards on behalf of the firm.
Barrett & Co Solicitors were proud to play a role in this exciting event and would like to offer their congratulations to all the prize winners for their success and all the participants for playing a role in such an exciting event.
