5th IFD FAKRO Skiing World Championships

UK roofers at 5th IFD FAKRO Skiing World Championships

This will be the fifth time the event has taken place in the Beskid S?decki mountain range under the patronage of the IFD, the International Federation for the Roofing Trade. 

The IFD will also be holding its conference for roofers, providing a forum for the contractor community to exchange experiences and opinions.

Winter sports competitions will take place in three disciplines:

  • tobogganing – 6th February followed by
  • downhill skiing – 7th February in the morning
  • snowboarding – 7th February in the afternoon

Toboggans will be supplied free while equipment for skiing and snowboarding can be rented to save the inconvenience and cost of transportation.

National teams of roofers will give a truly international flavour to the occasion, an international website having been set up to provide the necessary information for those looking to attend.

70 roofers take part including 8 NFRC contractors

Other countries represented included Belgium, Netherlands, Romania, Germany, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary and Poland.

In addition to the usual time-linked element to competitions, they will also be scored on an age-linked handicap system.

FAKRO Marketing Manager Andrew Cross: “The venue is spectacular and has something for everyone, not least because it is not a resort promoted in the UK. The competitions are wide open by virtue of the scoring system but will otherwise be judged according to sports regulations of the Polish Skiing Association. Individual competitions will be taking place for men and women as well as teams of up to five people.”

Non-competing visitors will have the opportunity to take a leisurely approach using ski-doos and snowmobiles as well as make use of the hotel spa facilities.
