STS Tooling Competition Saturday 8th October

The winners!
Dennis on his way to being the only person to complete Kev Shield's tough finals route.
Marianne on her way to winning the ladies competition - a strong performance which would have given her joint 2nd place in the mens!
Louise making the big moves on the first half of the finals route.

We always look forward to the Scottish Tooling Series round here at the Ice Factor. This time we had a full house of 60 competitors which gave a good buzz to the event without feeling crowded. Everyone tackled the 15 qualifying problems set around the building by Kev Shields and Karen McIntyre plus our own staff, and as usual there was a great supportive atmosphere.
Full results can be found at the STS Website
A righteous celebration followed up in the bar, with local band The Shine keeping us entertained. On balance, we think it's probably a good thing that our bar manager wouldn't let some of the competitors ski down the stairs!
We look forward to seeing folk again at the next round in a couple of weeks at Glenmore Lodge, and out on the hill as soon as the season begins.
