MACC 2014 — What's New
April 21. What's New? A new section on this site named "What's New," that what. By popular demand, it starts with a written version of the introductory talk from our president, Scott Pyles, at the Marks banquette last month. An excerpt:
That first season of 2004, I flew back to New England to race on off-weekends. I told my friends in New England about MACC racing – “You can’t believe this, the competition is top quality, FIS style good courses. We race in our ability groups, not age. And we all work every job – the organization runs its own races. It’s awesome!”
Read the rest in the President's Corner.
March 25. Ski Racing magazine has an article about Midwest Masters that also shows a MACC racer getting instructions from Koz, and mentions MACC, Scott, and Cary.
March 9. We finished the season. Results are posted, including the Cantor Cup results including handicaps. (The handicaps for the race aren't used for averages; they're just for bragging rights.)
BTW, Women's' B was getting too crowded with all the upgrades, so Renee moved up to A with the season's final upgrade. Congratulations!
MACC Racing: Who We Are
The Michigan Alpine Competition Council (MACC) is a non-profit organization made of amateur ski racers who work as volunteers to run the main Alpine ski racing program for adults in the Michigan region.
Our race series covers 12 races over five weekends each year at Boyne Mountain and at Marquette. It's open to virtually all adult recreational racers and also 14, 15, 16, and 17-year old racers with MACC parents.
You race in a class based on ability and gender. Ability groups with lots of racers are further divided by age. Most races are FIS slalom and giant slalom. However, we also have a genuine super-G and a super-combined fun race at the end of the season.
