A draft technical package for the NCD series has been posted - look for it under the NCD Race Series. Or click here to link to the page.
All NCD race series organizers should take a look at the package. We have made two significant changes...the race categories and the expectation that these be low fluoro events (unless affiliated with a higher level race - i.e. Easterns)
The fees associated with the race series go towards the athlete awards and keeping our equipment maintained and up to date - it is a very small fee that helps ensure that we recognize our local athletes and have good equipment to use by all clubs in the region (both Quebec and Ontario).
We are now into fall and the events calendar continues to become clearer and clearer. We now have the confirmed and final National, Quebec Cup and Ontario Cup Calendars. Chelsea Nakkertok and Skinouk have confirmed their dates and we continue to refine and confirm the dates for our local events. Please visit the calendar page for updates. More updates to come. We are looking for someone to organize the Boxing Day burn off....
