CANCELLED – Open / Masters – HSC Race – 300 Yard Range
January 10, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Are you a gambler?
I’m playing the odds with cancelling the race on January 10. Here are my thoughts:
– It looks like we will not be able to ski on this Sunday January 10.
– Ed Sawyer is very generous in letting us use his range for our races. He is very willing to also make the range available on off-schedule weekends. But we don’t want to over stay our welcome.
– Let’s say we raced on the 10th on dirt. Then we get snow and can race on the 17th. And we also have a race scheduled for the 30th. This would mean asking the 300 yard range group to let us use their range during prime time for 3 weekends in a row. Plus what kind of turnout will we get if we have 3 races in 3 weeks?
– So I am betting that along the way we will be able to schedule an impromptu race this month, and I’ll want to be able to ask for the range without being a burden.
– To hedge our bets we will be sure to hold a race on Saturday January 30, regardless of conditions, so we are sure of one race in January.
– So you may ask, why don’t we hold a race on the 10th on the 65 yard range? My thoughts go back to “what if we end up with 3 races in 3 weeks”? Of course, if a group wants to they can set up on the 65 yard range and have a practice (just remember that we don’t have the 65 yard range reserved, so get there early).
– I plan to take the same approach in February.
– This is all a gamble, but it can’t hurt for you to do your snow dance so we can get to race on snow!
