I have attached primary dates for each club - PROTECTED DATES (click here)/ PROPOSED EVENT SCHEDULE (click here). Please look this over and let me know if your club plans to use this date and what type of event you would like to have. Also anyone interested in hosting States, the Jr. clinic and/or Team Slalom please let me know. Anyone that would like a second event give me those date as well, same if you would like a third. If there are any conflicts we will try to hash those out before the meeting, if we are unable to do so we will hold the lottery on the meeting date. I would like to have the schedule mostly
finished prior to the meeting so that we can simply vote to approve. This will allow us time for discussing other issues the association needs to address in
regards to building membership, promoting State supported events, Promotional boat use, etc.
Plans are to have a judge's, scorer's, and driver's clinics that day as well so we will need time for these. Please let anyone who may need these credits know and have them email me in advance so I can be prepared for crowd size.
