L.E.R.T International Night Tobogganing Team

Posted on Updated on

Graham Marks, Ramsey Dawson, Mark Campbell and Mark Elm

While away on the annual L.E.R.T skiing trip 4 intrepid Long Eaton tablers decided to enter a 3Km night toboggan Run in Hochgurgl. They had heard it was a scary run, but after a few beers  in the Nederhutte they decided  nothing was too difficult for the mighty 461. They had no idea what was in store for them, it was the most frighting run of their lives but also the funniest. Ex President Mark Campbell careered into a wooden wall several times, Ramsey Dawson didnt make one corner at all and buried himself in a snow drift, Mark Elm couldnt turn the toboggan  for toffee and Graham “need for speed”  Marks was the only one who had any degree of control of the sled. The L.E.R.T International Night Tobogganing Team  are still adamant  that they won a trophy that night despite the other tablers  insisting we  simply borrowed an ornamant from the hotel reception, outrageous.
