Fall 2 Round Tournament Update

Staring time is 9:00 am and we will be running both rounds on Saturday.  We will start with slalom and then start tricks and run it in conjunction with slalom.  There is no particular running order for trick.  Jump will be when slalom and tricks are complete.  Please be on the slalom starting dock ready to ski when it is your turn so we can get this done on Saturday, the warmer of the 2 days.  BRING WARM CLOTHES.
