Pierre -- What kind of internet connection do you have? I'm not much of a MAC person so troubleshooting insight isn't a strong point for me. Have you looked at the FAQ section on Microsoft site? I'll try to help get to the bottom of the problem if I can . . . let me know. :smile:

Right on John G -- Scott Peer really deserves alot of credit for helping slalom grow through the WLAC racing series. From the first events we attended in 1999 (also to the credit of Roger Hickey and Perry Fizzer) to present -- slalom racing has grown by leaps and bounds. Our WLAC race days are alway...
