Nordic racers are saying that the past season occurred during the snowless “winter of weird.” Despite everyone’s disappointment, it’s time to look ahead to the 2012-2013 season.

The general session of NYSSRA-Nordic’s Spring Meeting will be a teleconference (audio call-in commencing at 12:30 p.m.) on Sunday, April 1. The “electronic” meeting format is designed as a no travel + save time and gasoline meeting. See agenda below.

Competition committees will be meeting before April 1 to draft race schedules for next season, discuss policy/rules, plan summer events and camps, etc. They will post their draft schedule and reports on this website so they can be referenced during the general session on April 1.

To participate in the April 1 audio call-in meeting, please email the NYSSRA-Nordic president at by March 24. You will receive a confirming email with a dial-in telephone number with passcode to use and directions.

If you are not able to participate in the meeting, your comments can be sent by: 1) email to your club representative (see club list), or 2) email to your sport committee chair or the NYSSRA president (, or 3) a posting on the NYSSRA Forum page, or 4) the “leave a comment” at the bottom of the agenda below.
