HVRC had a big day on Saturday

Eleven racers competed at 7Springs.  Congratulations to M. Hessinger (J5) as he finishes both his runs in his 1st USSA race.  R. Bigatel (J4) won her 1st run so that will help her with her quest to go to a State Derby.  Her brothers, Clark (J5) and Justin (J6) stood on the podium with 1st and 2nd place finishes respectively.  B. Hunter (J1) took 2nd place and J. Jupena (J2) raced to a 3rd place finish.  Finally, it’s been expected for a while so congratulations to N. Blasey (J3) as he takes home his first USSA trophy with a 2nd place finish!  This was probably one of our best showings so a day to remember.   

We have a busy weekend coming up with another regional race on Saturday, and a practice and Open Cup #2 on Sunday.  Practice is on Sunday from 9:00 AM – 12:00 AM.  This will be a fundamentals practice with no gates.  We will be using ski school instructors.  Meet outside old Glaciers at 9:00 AM booted up and ready to go. 

Our 2nd Open Cup is scheduled on Comet at 1:00 PM on Sunday, January 15th .   Please make sure you are available to help or have arranged for a substitute when you are scheduled to assist.  Set-up begins at 11:00 AM and teardown usually occurs about 3:00 PM.   

J1 – J6 racers competing in the OhioPrints Slalom at 7 Springs on Saturday, January 14th should be registered by now.  For those racers that have not competed in a USSA slalom race, please discuss with the coaches if you are interested in competing.  We normally recommend that racers have competed in a USSA GS event before trying slalom.  Please let the coaches know if you are planning to race so we can advise you on procedures.  

J1 – J2 racers planning to compete in the PA Cup Slalom#1 & #2 at 7 Springs on Saturday/Sunday, January 21st/22nd should be registering by January 13th.  Please let the coaches know if you are planning to race so we can advise you on procedures.   

J3 – J6 racers planning to compete in the Wisp Classic GS at Wisp on Sunday, January 22nd should be registering by January 13th.  Please let the coaches know if you are planning to race so we can advise you on procedures.  This race is a good opportunity for season passholders to take advantage of the exchange program between HV and Wisp.  You should also note that this race has become much more important for derby qualification due the cancellation of races last week. 

J1 – J6 racers planning to compete in the Critchfield GS at 7 Springs on Sunday, January 29th should be registering by January 24th.  We normally recommend that racers have competed in a USSA GS event before trying slalom so this is a good race for first-timers.  Please let the coaches know if you are planning to race so we can advise you on procedures.  

We have been advised that Special Olympics is scheduled for Monday/Tuesday, February 13th-14th.  If you are available to help with set-up and teardown, please advise either Ralph or Steve.
