Next Generation Race Day: January 20, 2014

How It Works:  Registered Next Generation racers are required to check in at Racer Registration on race day with a parent/guardian, where they will:
- receive their race bibs
- sign a legal release
- have their parent/guardian sign a legal release
- be given a designated race time 

Then, racers meet at thetop of the course at the designated race start time where;
- they will be given a 15-minute race seminar with Race Director Gwyn Howat, which involves learning the race rules and basics, reviewing the course as well as watching racers run the course
- each racer will be required to do a slip/practice run WITH a parent or an escort designated by their parent (1 adult for every 1 Next Gen'er)
- immediately after their practice run, Next Gen/Escort teams will all come immediately back to the top of the race course, then the Next Generation racers will take their official race runs!

Who Qualifies For LBS:  The top 3 Next Generation racers will qualify for the Legendary Banked Slalom on Feb. 7-8-9, 2014
