Enthusiastic racer sends registration to MACC after hearing that Vet E1 is the most competitive class in the world, and, even better, they get to go before the E1 men. Unfortunately, he was under the 40-year age limit for a vet class so it didn't work out. That didn't stop Mick from pointing out that when he ran the program, you could race in a vet class with no problem if you were 35 or over.
MACC 2014 — Results from Weekend #4
Feb 24: It was almost Deja Vu on Saturday, with 12" in the past 24 hrs. But this time, there was a solid surface, and we had some experience. We ran two courses (4 & 1 starting at 11, 3 &2 starting about 1:45). Lots and lots of "vertical slipping" gave us two courses that were in pretty good shape. (Much better than race 1.) No one got hurt due to conditions!
Here are the results.
BW is getting bigger and bigger due to upgrades (we're talking to you, Debi and Stephanie!). Not to be outdone, Katelyn goes to E2W.
You might have heard we had some injuries. Here are reports from Scott and Debi.

MACC Racing: Who We Are
The Michigan Alpine Competition Council (MACC) is a non-profit organization made of amateur ski racers who work as volunteers to run the main Alpine ski racing program for adults in the Michigan region.
Our race series covers 12 races over five weekends each year at Boyne Mountain and at Marquette. It's open to virtually all adult recreational racers and also 14, 15, 16, and 17-year old racers with MACC parents.
You race in a class based on ability and gender. Ability groups with lots of racers are further divided by age. Most races are FIS slalom and giant slalom. However, we also have a genuine super-G and a super-combined fun race at the end of the season.
