STEVE AND DANYELLE TIE THE KNOT

Danyelle Jay

Both WORLD CUP Stars, Steve Critchley GBR and Danyelle Bennett USA are no strangers to Golden Falls. Both have been regular visitors to us over the years. Many will also remember the great Coaching Classes from Steve who is one of the most popular we have had.

Last weekend, Steve and Danyelle tied the know down in Louisianna. Dad Jay was there to give his daughter Danyelle away and Steve had a bunch of family and friends there from the UK to share in the celebrations.

We all wish Steve and Danyelle a long and happy life together – and hopefully we will see them back at Golden Falls again soon.

WELCOME HOME TO JAKE – AND ALSO TO STEVE AND DANYELLE

This was a happy week at Golden Falls. ‘Great to have Jake Bridges back with us once again and to see him fully recovered from his heel injury which knocked him out of competition for about a year. Jake got back to fitness for the Europe Africa U21 Championships and is now looking forward to getting back to jumping over 60m once again. Recovery takes time and he is making great progress. That Irish Jump Record will fall again soon – only a matter of time and the name will be JAKE BRIDGES.

It was also great to have Steve Critchley back with us once again. This time he brought Danyelle Bennett with him – straight from the World Championships in Dubna Russia – and both ran a very successful Coaching Course at Golden Falls over this past week.  It is always a pleasure to have some of the World’s top Skiers with us and you can be quite sure that our younger Golden Falls Skiers will remember this experience for years to come.

We still have this ongoing problem with very high water levels. It is causing dreadful damage to our Lake banks and also undermining the new foundations of our Stone Bridge fencing. We are in contact with the ESB and are still totally puzzled as to why they need such enormous volumes of water which is eroding the banks day by day. Lets hope we can get this resolved quickly.

THREE SPECIAL COURSES AT GOLDEN FALLS WSC

CLUB HOSTS TWO KIDZ CAMPS PLUS STEVE CRITCHLEY COURSE IN JULY & AUGUST

We all know that our Summers are just far too short. This means we have to make the most of every day on the water. The folks at Golden Falls in County Kildare are certainly not wasting any time on their 20C water right now ! With one Kidz Camp already completed plus the highly successful National Children’s Day last Sunday, three more special Courses have been organised for the coming weeks. That lake at Golden Falls will be a busy place !

For the week of August 8th, ranked in the top 20 in the World, Jumper Steve Critchley will return once again for some high level coaching. Ten more advanced lucky souls will spend each day on the water with Steve and all will be guaranteed a special learning experience. At this early stage, we hear that the Course is almost booked out already as Steve’s reputation is a major attraction. His 2010 Course at the Club was one of the best for some time and all are really looking forward to his return.

The Club also has TWO more Kidz Camps marked in for the weeks of July 25th and August 2nd. The first is a five day Course and the second a four day Course. Again, we hear that these are also almost booked out. The Club’s Coach Daryl Higgins, has had great success this Summer with the young stars in the making and we all hope that this will deliver some serious competitors a little down the road. However, having fun on the water is the real aim in the coming weeks and judging by the popularity of the June Kidz Camp, this looks like a certainty.

Well done to all the team at Golden Falls – photos and reports to follow soon.

If your Club has special activities planned for the coming weeks,  just send us the details and photos, and we will help to spread the good word !
