Happy November. Happy Dark Season. Welcome to Racing.
As we have in the past, NYSSRA-Nordic is starting the club racing season with a points-series MEMBERSHIP RACE. This is your chance to sign up for a winter racing license and pledge your loyalty to one of the sanctioned NYSSRA clubs. All season long you will score points for your club and help them on their quest for the club championship banner. The Membership Race starts November 1st and ends December 1st. Results for this first “Race” will be posted here and you can see which club will jump out to the early points lead. Will HURT Nordic once again top the charts in their quest to keep their winning streak alive? Will RNR or NYSEF juniors sign in droves in preparation for Junior Nationals in Placid? Perhaps Peru will raise and sign the skiing-dead. Or Maybe newly formed super-group GHN-ADK Vauhti will make a surprise run. Don’t count out Shenendehowa, Cayuga, The Polar Bears, Wolverines or Saratoga Biathlon Club. Each season is a new chance to spread the word, grow your club and share your love of nordic racing.
Maybe you want to start a new club with your friends?! It is easy to do. Start a Club.
If you sign up for the NYSSRA membership season prior to November 20th, you can head down to Saratoga on November 19th for the Hudson United Racing Teams NYS Rollerski Championship. While this race is not part of the NYSSRA winter points series it is a great tune-up before the season opener and a fun way to take advantage of all your off-season training.
