Labor Day has come and gone and our great West Coast late summer 
weather is starting to offer hints of fall. It'll be ski season again 
before too long, so it's not too soon to start planning for the coming 
race season!

Membership packages and the final 2012 season schedule will be out this 
month and we're starting to get information about preseason camps.

Coming up at the end of this month: a dryland training camp with US 
racing star Stacey Cook in Mammoth CA to get your fitness foundation in 
place for the racing season.

Membership - USSA, Far West Masters

The Far West masters membership packages and the Fall newsletter will 
be out this month - copies will be mailed to all recently active 
members and posted on the web site. The preliminary schedule is posted 
on the Season Schedule page (the final schedule will be posted as soon 
as we settle a few remaining details, but the basic event schedule is 
in place).


Don't forget to head over to http://ussa.org to sign up for your 
master's competition license for the coming season if you haven't 
already done so. You can register online or print and mail an 
application (be sure you sign up for the Masters's competitor license).

Preseason Camps

Information about preseason training camps will be posted as 
information is available. Coming up in just a few weeks is a fall 
dryland training camp with Olympic and national team racer Stacey Cook. 
This is a 3-day camp in Mammoth where you'll have a chance to learn 
training techniques and philosophies direct from one of our most 
successful American racers.


For a change of scene in your early season, the California Fire/Police 
Olympics organizers have put together a camp in Kaprun Austria Oct. 
22-Nov. 5. The package includes transportation, lodging, and up to 12 
days of skiing with coach Thomas Gardtman.


More information on training camps and preseason race events at area 
shops will be posted as available, including details on Mammoth's 
annual Masters Camp week Nov. 28-Dec. 1 before the opening races on 
Dec. 2-4.
