Mid Season Meeting u14/16/19 Meeting
A lot of time has been put into our programing, so it is important to take advantage of when we schedule rest and when we do not have rest scheduled. It is easy to want to modify based on emotions (that is why we schedule in the fall). We feel we have a laid our a very good schedule.
Please note: Qualifying standards has changed from previous years.
Pinnacle does not provide speed skis for all club members. We have a limited number of speed skis to share with members. If you are borrowing a pair of club skis, remember this is a benefit. It is expected that all club speed skis are tuned at the Ski Company and skis should be tuned at the Ski Company prior to returning to the club.
It is truly special what our club offers in training. Consider the acreage given to our club to train, snow quality, and also the early morning sessions. This all can be taken away very quickly! We need to make sure we represent our club well in the lodge and all places we travel. Resort staff is watching very close.
Early Morning Guidelines:
Selection rankings will be posted below
For the 2018-2019 season, the Central Division will hold 1 qualifying series for R1,2,3,4, for selections to the Rocky/Central Junior Championships, over a 3 day weekend. The series will consist of 3 GS and 3 SL USSS non-scored races. Athletes will be selected for the R/C Junior Championships by using the combined rankings from the best three of six total races, where no more than 2 races can come from the same discipline (example: 2GS AND 1SL or 2SL AND 1 GS). Rankings per race will be determined by using a modified World Cup Points (top 45) in each race run.
If a race or day is cancelled, best efforts to complete 2 GS and 2 SL race runs will take priority.
Using the single best result will break ties. If a tie still exists, the next best result would be used, and this process will continue until the tie is broken. If a tie is still not broken, race points will be used in the same process. All eligible qualifying races will be considered for tie-breaking purposes.
Seeding for the Qualifying races will run as:
Flip of Race 1
Inside-Out of Race 2
Flip of Race 3
Flip of Race 5

Official requests will be due 24 hours after the completion of the qualifying series. The Central Development Committee will rule on those ASAP following the 24hr deadline and report those decisions to the Central Division Manager. If there are no requests, then the 2 discretion spots will move down the list to the next ranked athletes.
