said in the thread regarding another organization, ". . . instead of starting a new organization, if there is a good idea out there for a new league lets start it under AWSA and do our best to avoid all the rules, politics, that comes with AWSA or maybe thats not not possible b/c we would still need awsa insurance which means safety, drivers etc? But it's worth a try first.
Lets here some ideas for a new ski league, what would it have and not have, how would it work, run, where, etc."
This sounds like a reasonable idea to consider. I personally would be interested, and would love to see what others thought and what ideas they might have. And it seems like Jeff is interested too. How about we share some?
As for me, I would be interested in seeing more lower level comps with some sort of scoring, and possibly even something like alpine snow skiing has with "Wednesday "beer" league racing, and/or what alpine skiing has with NASTAR. @oldjeep
) knows something about that I think, and I have participated in both sorts of events. I just want to see more competition opportunities for the lesser skilled/advanced, and more ski opportunities in preparation, and would love to see investment of some kind toward that. We already have "grass roots" stuff, but I would like to see that expanded somehow. Not sure how. The fact is that for me, there is one event at the end of the season anywhere reasonably close. Now if I get over the WA, there are quite a few over the course of the summer. But very little intermountain. Would love to see that expanded. And also, some other sort of regular "comp" opportunity that might not even qualify to be grassroots, but would be a way to test one's self on a regular basis, NASTAR style, or Wed. Beer league style.
