RE SnowBoarding Team

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I am currently in 1RSME doing the B+SF course. I have been interested in getting into SnowBoarding as a hobby and heard there is a RE Team... does anyone know if you have to be semi-pro to get on the team, or are there ways the team train you to ride?

    any information will be great
     
  2. normally anyone can pay to go on a "snow queen" ski camp, as it used to be called, & if they pick up that you are any good then you may be asked to attend a ski camp for selection.
     
  3. There should be a list of sports officers for 1 RSME. Speak to the OIC snowboarding and he/she should be able to point you in the right direction.
     
  4. Some regiments have teams which participate in the snowboarding camps/competitions in Stubai alongside the RE Alpine Ski Camp. I am not sure if there is a Corps team, if there were it'd most likely be located in Germany at 28, to hazard a guess.
     
  5. And if it is anything like 35 Regt in the 80's, when selected you'll spend 5 months of the year away, and your job will be covered by some other poor sod - on arrival back, tanned up and totally shag happy, you can ask for (and get) all the courses and cadres you missed - and the same poor sod will cover for you again and so on and so on.
    It's a wonderful life if you can get it! Yes - you Snow Queens know who you are....!

    thanks
