If they want to be good at it then it is a whole other ball of wax. Tight slalom is a specialty and requires a lot of tight practice. Th...

We know the BOD is busy trying to get everything sorted but here is a question regarding this years races.

Is there going to be a revised sanction application or 2011? When can we expect it and can we create some specific areas for the 2011 season other then the calendar?
