Hi everyone!

We've added a bit of logistical information to the website and are getting really excited about the week!

Something that isn't on the page because it isn't settled is that we expect to have at least one if not two National Ranking Event days as part of the SWSW.

NREs! Now you've got my interest :)

No urban sprint races?

Nothing's set in stone yet. Maybe the sprint day should include a trial of the new WOC sprint tournament format?

What might the formats for the 24-25 weekend be? Any chance those will be classic/long distance point-to-point and/or NRE(s)?

The 25th is now a confirmed NRE day. I believe the 24th will be a local event with training and a sprint.

The plan for Monday the 19th is to have a mass-start handicapped race a la Ontario Cup.

Tuesday and Friday will have regular courses with cut-off options and training options (manipulated maps)

I talked to Ron Birks from GPHXO today. Saturday 2/24 will be Needle Vista sprints during the day and then a Night-O in the same area.

Tucson has applied for a free NRE day for the February 18th classic events at Box Canyon. We'll let you know the final status as soon we know!
