_______schedule &
sound controls:

We have races scheduled already in Utah and New England, but we need to see your races here as well. Send us the info! Already had a race? Send us the results.

For those of you who want to do these races:
They are all very informal and laid-back (at least until the gun goes off). But it is always a good idea to contact the race organizer beforehand so they know how many people to plan for.

To qualify as a bona-fide IRS race, your event must include at least ONE of the following criteria:
1)At least five competitors
2)An entertaining race write-up
3)Julija Tchepalova

We are here to help you train better. Let us help you get a few skiers together for a friendly competition (friendly as long as you don't invite both Smith and Stange - we won't make that mistake again). We will be accepting races and results right up until the end of the 2001 season in October. Send us as many races as you want, but remember only your best three races will count for the title.

this is where it all starts. if you are already appalled, leave now. it only gets worse.
