Below is a note from Paul Van Slyke regarding the FALL FIS TD UPDATES.  VARA AO updates, dates and times will be posted shortly as well as emailed out to coaches and clubs.


Dear FIS TD’s & Alpine Colleagues,

Alpine FIS TD Updates for North America are being held October 17-19 in Vancouver and October 24-26 in Albany, NY.  I am aware that you may have received an invitation from us  via constant contact for each event so please excuse us if this is viewed as a duplication.

As usual, Ted & I  invite you to attend and encourage you to extend the invitation to those in your areas that will benefit from learning the first hand information as provided by the FIS & North American FIS TD Working Group.  World Cup, Nor AM and NC organizers are highly encouraged to attend.

We thank you in advance for setting aside your valuable time to attend at your own expense. We would urge you to help us by registering with us and the hotels as early as possible. 

The 2014-15 season is fast approaching and as always we depend on you to be fully up to date on these important changes and to keep safety and fairness as the top priorities while doing so.  There is much to do and we count on you all to provide wisdom, content and support for what we do in North America.

Please reach us with any questions, again please make arrangements and reservations early, and accept our thanks for your extraordinary contributions to our sport.

To register,  you may go to where you will find links to information regarding the events and how to register.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you all this October!
