Thanks, Biff, for letting me know about this.
I am going.

How does the race work? Can any old chump like me enter?
I have never raced before, but have always thought it would be wicked fun. (I'm not seriously considering entering this time, but curious for the future.)

Zeke,

The race is a simple nastar style gate race opened to all abilities. There should be some good prizes.

You could use Google Chrome. It opens in a new tab for me when I open the first link provided in the email notification.

Hmm... that is my browser. When I click the above link, it stays in the sam tab. No big deal, just thought it might be a single setting related to the forum.

So if anyone is going to this telefest from Portland, I'd love to carpool. Please let me know.

Do folks here know what type of gear will be for sale or what skis will be available for demo?

Nice job racing Comoteledude. 8th place is not bad for someone that never raced before.
