It finally stopped snowing (...at least the daily accumulation change from feet to inches :P ) in Colorado, just in time for five days of racing!

Thanks to the PNSA, Intermountain, Midwest, and South Carolina Racers that joined us!

The Midwest and Rocky divisions held the first official Shin-Tuck Showdown. This year's scoring over-weighted the speed events a little more than they should have, but we had a great time didn't we! The scoring method will be reviewed for next year!
