Inner Course

I think I'm addicted to the Inner Course. Four passes in a row yesterday @32 off.

If only it counted in tournament's......

    @2valve Mini buoys DO count in Class C tournaments as of last year. The rules/specifics are in the tournament guide.

    Class C, or just collegiate tournaments?

    You're too young for inner course!
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    Class C tournaments too @Zman. Each inner buoy is worth 1/2 buoy (no partial buoys scored). For scoring purposes the half buoys only count on the first pass.

    13.04 Mini Course:
    At the option of the LOC in Class C tournaments and below, skiers may choose to ski mini course buoys:
    A. Mini course buoys, preferably green in color, are to be placed by the LOC at approximately 8.5 meters from center-line of the slalom course. However, there is NO required measurement or specified tolerance. NOTE: The slalom course for the disabled is 6.4m from center-line.
    B. Each mini course buoy is scored as 1/2 point. To get credit, the skier must go through the entry gates, around the mini course buoy and then cross the boat guide line closest to the buoy. No partial credit is awarded for mini course buoys.
    C. A mixture of mini course buoys and full course buoys can be used to attain a score. The mixture must be of consecutive buoys. Once a buoy is missed (either mini and/or regular) no more buoys are counted in the scoring of that pass.
    D. Mini course scoring will only be used on the first pass in Class C.
    E. A skier must make 6 full buoys to get a second pass in Class C.

    Never too old for the Inner Course. My motto anyway. :)

    The only thing that changes is how soon you are ready for it again.
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

    @gt2003 Just keep the spelling "Inner...." and nobody can accuse you of anything immoral. :)
