Evie Smalley (98-12 F) and Tim Squire (71-77 B) met on the ski slopes early in the New Year. Unbeknown to each other, they realised they both were pupils at West Buckland. Evie, who is currently studying osteopathy at Oxford Brooks University was skiing for the Oxford University OTC and Tim was skiing for the Scottish Transport Regiment. They both were competing in the slalom, giant slalom, super giant slalom and downhill events at the UK Regional and TA Divisional Ski Championships which was a 10 day long exercise in the French resort of Serre Chevalier. Coincidentally they both qualified to move onto the Army Championships, also in Serre Chevalier for ten day exercise.
