I hope each of you are enjoying spring activities and getting some vitamin D on the sunny days as they come.
I promised last week I would update you with National Events/Dates.
Here we go:
– They will be in Craftsbury, VT.
– Lodging at the outdoor center is full. Highland Lodge may be a good option about 15 minutes away. (Morrisville is 30 minutes and Stowe is 45 minutes.)
– For flying, Boston is 4 hours and Montreal is 2 hours away. Burlington may look like the logical option, but my personal experience tells me if you are flying with a team and large amounts of luggage getting you, your team and your luggage in and out may be dicey.
– Wax Cabins should be reserved by Sept. 1
– Website is www.craftsburynationals.com
1/3 10/15 CL
1/4 CL SP
1/6 5/10/20/30 FS MS

Trip leaders will be on top of full specifics for GLD and MW Teams and will announce logistics info in timely manners.
– 2019 JNs will be in Anchorage, AK at Kincaid Park March 9-17.

Mar 9 – 5/10k Ind. CL
Mar. 10 – FS SP
Mar. 12 – Mass Start FS
Mar. 13 – CL Relay
Note: these dates may be subject to change slightly based upon direction from the US Ski and Snowboard Junior Committee.
SUPER TOUR FINALS
– They will be in Presque Isle, ME Mar 28-April 2, 2019.
I have not been to Presque Isle before. I hear it is similar to the UP of Michigan. Why, I’m not sure. I hear that once you get there the venue is a great place to race.
I believe they have private wax cabins on site. They may be free of charge.
Sorry, I don’t have more to update you on. If you need more info, you may want to ask a friend in Biathalon, as I think USBA gets there more often.
2020 AND BEYOND (SITES TBD)
– 2020 US Nats have Central up in the rotation
– 2020 Spring Nationals (SuperTour Finals will be re-branded and each race will be a National Championship event): West or Alaska
– 2021 JNs will be in Central
– 2023 World University Games will be in Lake Placid, NY
That’s a lot of info for you. Catch you next time!
