Racer Upgrades for 2003
Each weekend, racers whose average handicaps have dropped out of the minimum for their class are listed here. They are upgraded, after official approval at the following MACC meeting. The list here shows the handicap (HC), the minimum HC for the old class, and the new class for the racer. Congratulations!
Separate handicaps are calculated for slalom and giant slalom. Your class is determined by the lowest of the two. The handicap limits for each class are shown below the lists of upgrades.

For the first time ever, there are no end-of-season upgrades. Everyone who was going to upgrade this year has already done it. Congratulations to all who have improved!

A handicap system is used to place MACC racers in appropriate ability classes, and to determine when racers should upgrade or downgrade to different classes.
The handicaps are determined largely by past histories of most of the racers competing on a course. Pacesetters provide quality control, and influence the handicaps of racers who are much faster or much slower than the average racer for the course.
Calculating and Reporting Handicaps
Handicaps are computed for all race times. However, the handicaps shown in the results on a race day are subject to adjusment and are not considered "final" until after the first MACC meeting that follows the race.
Handicaps are calculated using different equations for the first and second run, in order to compensate for differing course conditions. Therefore, identical times on the first and second runs can result in different handicaps.
