Cameron Ski Club
We were going to the ski jumps at my Grandpa’s house in Coleraine. There are lots of ski jumps there. There were a couple days to practice. I got my suit on, helmet and boots. I was ready to go ski jumping.
I put my skis on and went to the poma. I was skiing on the 10 meter with jumping skis. There was a guy to help me get on the poma. I went up slowly. My mom had to run to the top to help me get off. There was a small line so I had to wait. When it was my turn my mom had to drop me in the track and I went really fast. When it was done I went like 5 or 6 times. I went one more time so my mom dropped me in the tracks. I went so fast my ski slipped out of the track. I got to the bottom and I face planted in the snow. The snow was in my suit. We figured out I had a black eye. It really hurt. I said, “I will never ski jump again.’ ’But when my friend Layla came I said, “I got a black eye because I fell.” Then Layla said, “You can still do this’’. Then I kept going because I needed to practice. I skied a few more times. I was happy I did it again.
At the end of the day Addy invited me for a sleepover. After that my mom drove me to Addy’s house. Layla was staying there too. When we got there Addy showed us around her house. The parents called us for supper. We had pizza. Then we went to bed. Before we went to bed Addy kissed my eye and said, “it will be ok.” Then Layla, Addy and I went to bed.
In the morning I woke up Addy and Layla and I told them it was the tournament. Then we got dressed. We went to the ski jumps to get started. I got on the poma. I started going up and by the time I was up I could get off by myself. I got a couple practice jumps. I thought I was going to fall again. I took 5 to 6 jumps. After it was the tournament. We got our bibs. A little later it was my turn. Everyone was cheering and the flag waved. I went down. It was scary. After a while they handed out medals. I got 5th place. I hope I can do it again some time.
