New Race Hut arrives. Nick Blasey podiums at Vector Races.

N. Blasey (U16) started his quest for a 4th consecutive derby invitation with 2nd place finishes in 3 of his 4 runs at the Vector Races this past weekend.  J. Jupena (U18) completed all four of his runs in the same races.  Racing conditions were less than ideal; a number of racers did not finish one or more of the runs.  

We will have practice on Saturday Jan. 5 starting at 9:00 AM.  This practice will be Slalom based and will be held on Imperial.  Those planning to practice should meet the coaches outside old Glaciers.  The practice will run until 11 AM.  If you are available to help set-up, meet Ralph outside Ski Patrol at 8:30 AM. 

There is also a practice on Sunday from 9 AM until 12 Noon for those who are not racing in the Center Ski Tools GS at 7 Springs.  This will be a fundamentals practice with no gates.   Those planning to practice should meet the coaches outside old Glaciers. 

The 2nd annual Critchfield Cup Race is scheduled for Saturday, January 5th on Imperial.  This race is open to the public so anyone can join in the fun.  Trophies are planned to be awarded to the top three finishers in each age category.  There are nine age categories including 21-35 and 36 and older for both male and female.  Many HVRC racers have not yet signed up for this race!  This race is not included in club membership and requires advance signup by January 1st to guarantee your racer receives a t-shirt.  The event fee is $20 per racer.  Racers may sign up at Customer Service beginning Saturday, December 22nd or by sending me an email.  If you are not a club member, please sign and include the attached release with your entry.  We also need to know the t-shirt size of each racer so please include that info.
