Wanted: Masters 45 and over birthdates

Post by Judi Oyama » Mon Sep 26, 2005 2:51 pm

Starting today I will be helping Hans with his slalom rankings for the US masters category to start in 2006. I need real names and complete birth dates. It's never too late to start. Who knows maybe one day we will even have a grand masters category. At the rate we are all still skating you never know.

You can either post them here on the Wanted: Masters section or email me direct. There are many younger skaters birth dates missing as well so if you see your birth date missing on the rankings please send them in.

Thanks,

Judi Oyama

Hi Judy,

Well done again on a storming performance at Morro...You pushed Lynn to her best skating, my money is on you next time!

On the age front, my DOB is 5th May 1960 (does that make me the oldest skater to podium at the Worlds?), making me 45.

Take care,

Masters

Post by Judi Oyama » Tue Sep 27, 2005 8:51 pm

I don't think being in the masters will change Pro or Open...I think it would be cool if the top 4 men and women...can run off for a Masters title. I'm collecting dates and names for the World Ranking system.

Martin you did great by the way. Thanks for the nice words. It's nice to know that at almost 46 I can still give Lynn a run for her money. Your final runs were amazing under pressure. Hello to Trish I'm looking forward to meeting her in the future at races. We need more women.

Jack congrats on the Radikal job.

Steve you would of been so proud of Mike's racing.

I know I forwarded it you Judy but since everyoe started posting, here goes.

46, Dec 30, 1958

Steve I agree 100%. It's great to be able to sk8 eith the best.

I've been pushing for a Masters since 2002. This past year I had 3 practice days outside of competition venues. Pain had seemingly gone away in July at Colorado then came back in Stockholm.

Not being able to practice takes the sharpness and accuracy away therefore the cones are killers. Practice makes perfect but perfect practice is the key.

I would almost like to show up at events and focus on Coaching those that need help more. Although for next year I'm going after all of you.

Your still my Slalom hero of All Time.
Many Happy Pumps!

Only issue for Masters ranking is that for a PRO/AM event only AM results count for the Masters ranking automatically. I.e. if you compete in a pro discipline and is over 45 your results does not count towards the masters ranking. This can be resolved by having a special Masters division class on the side where all 45 and over can compete weather they are in the pro, am or women class.

Or is there any other way to deal with this PRO/AM "Masters" issue?

Ideally everybody in Master category is treated as one group. How that actually is achieved is harder to tell.

...until the Master start to compete all in one class I guess we have to have a Master Pro and a Master Am class. And a Masters Women. That's not too bad, and probably not too hard to calculate & program.

Well that is not a bad idea having a PRO and an AM class for men 45+ also.

OPEN classes will depend of racers status as PRO or AM just like it works right now.

Ok, back to the code and some more programming.

I had hoped to be able to treat the Men Master Class as one single class but dividing them will solve my problems.

I hope Schwippy didn't get to you too bad at The Worlds !! ;-)

I know the old clock is ticking, my bones are gettin' stiffer too, but don't Sandbag it until you're 46 or so. C'mon, you gotta look at guys like Cliff Coleman, or Claude for inspiration here! Beside, dude, you're still pretty buff (not no CMC, but, not Italian,either). It's a mind game, one your brain plays on your body as it trys to recall what happened 20 minutes ago. Go Skate! Your body will inform the rest of you that things are fine, and your butt still looks fast when riding a board! :-)

BTW, i'll join the 'old farts' league, at least in time spent orbiting the sun, in a mere 3 years. Whatever. Give me a hill, a board, and get outa my way... :-D
I'm going down Fightin' !

There are very few riders registered in the "Legend" category so far. Here's the current standings as of May 2007:


===================
PRO (2006-2007):
===================

1 Keith Hollien, USA
2 Claude Regnier, CAN
3 Jani Söderhäll, SWE


===================
AM (2006-2007):
===================
1 Glenn Chapman, USA
2 Bruce Bjortvedt, USA
2 Judi Oyama, USA
4 Jack Smith, USA (should be moved up to Pro)
5 Martin Drayton, TRI
6 Marty Schaub, USA
7 Shane Anderson, USA
8 Pat Chewning, USA
9 Steve Collins, USA


If you are 45+, please send your date of birth (at least year) to Corky.
Corky will review this result for the next update of the ranking, so it would be good to add in a few more of the Grand Masters.

"Smells like Old People...."

Post by Martin Drayton » Fri Jun 01, 2007 9:36 am

Hi PSR,
No your boy didn't get to me too bad...I beat him didn't I! Didn't that get to him if I remember rightly? ;)
Anyway, I'm just asking to be included in that points list AS WELL AS the normal Pro ranking. I will be racing in the normal Pro events and would like my points put in both (I think that is how it works). I also turned 47 last month, so I was a Master when I won Worlds!
I am looking forward to the next few years of racing and I figure on carrying on for a while at the upper level as my knowledge and skills are at their highest and I'm fitter than most people half my age. I feel strong and fast.
I figure I have nothing to lose as I will be the underdog, just the same as when I heard everyone writing me off as I walked back up the hill after that first run against Schwipp when I was 1.5 or so down...
So as you guys like to say...."BRING IT!"

Oh, Jani, I thought you were younger, damn! I guess when they do have a Maters category at Worlds in afew years, it'll be some wicked racing!

I recently realized I now qualify in the Master category. I turned 45 on March 20:th!


I hope more people can have their birthdates/years updated and that Corky will do his work on this ranking category as well. Right now it's not really correct and he's not going back so much in time (2006-2007 only). He told me he never really spent much time making sure it was correct, but he'll have a look at it when updating the ranking next time.
And, rest assured Martin, he noted your request on a little piece of paper. You may soon become a Pro!

This is the advanced formula used for deciding what age you have in the World Ranking

Age = Current year – Birth year

Ex: 44 = 2007 - 1963. Damn!

So by the looks of it, it will be 6 more months before I will have it all up and running. Unless any other motivation strucks me before. ;-)

Or... if I get some help collecting event results and keeping the ranking event calendar up to date. That could work too.

I like the master idea, but did somebody think about the very close time schedule for a race on a weekend ? For example in Hannover,........they stopped the Am parallel competition after the cut to 16 because there was no time left ! I saw other races with also very narrow time schedule.
There are a lot of old farts out there, therefore I would like to see one Master Class.
Pro, AM,women, in one class.
If there is one class it would probably fit in a race weekend ?!
I think at that part of the life its not about beeing the fastest, its about fun with racers at the same age. :-)......before they race with wheelchairs or play golf ! :-)
