Slalom Posters

We are happy to publish a miniature on this page, linked to your bigger poster. The miniature will be small. Keep pictures and text big and bold!


Ken Trollope

Sadly, Ken Trollope has died.

The whole slalom community owes a massive debt to Ken - as parent, club organiser and coach, judge, committee secretary, yearbook compiler and a whole lot of other things, as well as creator of the SimplySlalom software that most race organisers now depend on. He was one of those people you can't replace.

Ken's funeral will be held on 8th June at 10.45 at Salisbury Crematorium, 1 Barrington Rd, Salisbury SP1 3JB. No flowers please, but we will be collecting for the RNLI.

Tim and Amanda would like to thank everyone for the lovely messages about him.
