It is highly recommended for ALL competitors to arrive Wednesday to park in your designated parking spots to be ready for Thursday. On Thursday we will allow racers to "practice" on the starting dock launch pad to dial in your setup. As parking is EXTREMELY Tight, we will have assigned parking spaces and a Parking Steward to guide you to your assigned spot.
IF YOU PARK SOMEWHERE OTHER THAN YOU ASSIGNED SPOT YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO MOVE.
Everyone "should" know by now, but in case you don't know what you signed up for...
Slalom Drags uses a floating dock system as a launch pad for the start of each side-by-side race. The height of your particular launch pad is fully adjustable so you can obtain the specific amount of resistance you prefer between the bottom of your ski and the surface of the bunks your ski is sitting on.
In addition, a drag-style light tree is mounted on the front of the Starting Dock and is the method by which we start the race.
On Thursday each competitor will have an opportunity to test both the Starting Dock Launch Pad and the Starting system.
THERE WILL BE NO OTHER OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOU TO TEST/PRACTICE THIS SYSTEM AS FRIDAY'S SCHEDULE IS FULL AND WE WILL GO STARIGHT INTO Q1 & Q2 TIMED QUALIFYING AT THE START OF THE PROGRAM.
