No Fun Day Sunday:-(

We are sad to say:  Due to the limited snow, and forecasted rain on Sunday our BBSEF fun day is not looking very fun.  Regrettably we are canceling Sunday’s  fun day.  We are keeping our fingers crossed that the weather will turn cold and snow so we can finish the season with a great powder day!

Last weekend was officially the end of training for our Home Teams. There will NOT be any more training on Saturday or Sunday for Mitey Mites/D-Team/Team Shred Home.

We do have the McCall Winter Games March 27th & 28th.  Entry fees are $15 for Age Class Racers. Entry is payable online at: http://mccallwintersportsclub.org/winter_games. BBSEF will be sending coaches.  After you register online please RSVP and let us know you are going so we know how many coaches to send. Attached is the race announcement with all of the details.

We hope to see everyone at the Annual BBSEF banquet and meeting.  The banquet/meeting will be Friday, May 1st, at Westys Bowling Center (by the fairgrounds) in Garden City, from 5:30-8:00 pm.

Schedule of events:

  • 5:30 Annual Meeting
  • 6:00 Awards
  • 6:30-8:00 Pizza & Bowling

The cost is $15.00 for ages 8 & older, children ages 7 and under are $5.00. This includes: bowling, shoe rental, pizza, salad and soda.

 

Roses!

BBSEF Friends and Families:

BBSEF’s 28th annual Rose Sale is under way.  The Rose Sale is a terrific fund-raiser that provides a unique and fun way to help us maintain quality programs. The cost is only $15.00 per dozen. These roses are beautiful and it is fun to see the smiles when people receive their roses. Roses may be picked up on Wednesday, March 11th and Thursday March 12th between 9:00 am to 5:30 pm. Money raised will benefit all of our BBSEF teams, by way of upgraded equipment and other necessary improvements. These gorgeous roses are guaranteed and available in multitude of beautiful colors.

 Need to allow time for cleanup and calculating of scores.
 Awards in front of the Jason Harper Race Training center.
SICK BIRD: award provided to the best, most impressive run, of the competition.
Additional awards and prizes provided as well.
SCORING:
Plan for each skier to get at least two judged runs (May be able to do 2 rounds on Saturday time and weather permitting).
 The final score will be the cumulative score from Saturday’s best score (if there are two) and Sunday’s one score.
o If a second run takes place on Saturday, we’ll take the best score of the two rounds for that day’s score
CHANGES:
As everyone knows, this is all weather and time dependent and plans can change as necessary. We’ll do everything possible to adhere to the schedule but it’s not written in stone. We will make necessary changes when required to do so based on conditions and time.
Skiers judged in 5 categories:
1. Line Choice:
a. Line is determined by the head judge and that score is used by all the judges for further criteria.
i. Line score is based on the difficulty of the terrain skied as well as any obstacles (jumps, drops, etc) that the skier/rider may use to get to the bottom.
2. Control:
a. The first category judged following the line value determination. It’s at the top of the list as it’s considered most important. A fall is the ultimate loss of control and will most likely have an impact on the remaining 3 categories to be judged.
3. Fluidity:
a. Constant direction toward the goal.
i. Keeping your body moving down the fall line of the mountain.
ii. Keeping continuity and pace with smooth transitions for obstacles or jumps.
iii. Doesn’t have to be rapid fast as this isn’t a timed event.
4. Technique:
a. Style, technical ability, etc. Taking air, doing tricks in the air, is accounted for in this category.
i. Not only jumps or tricks are judged here though…proper skiing form and technique is huge here.
ii. All the stuff that coaches preach day in and day out…pole plants, hands staying forward, keeping the eyes and focus down the hill, proper angulation to help stay under control, etc.
5. Style and Energy:
a. The energy one skis with.
b. The pace.
c. Aggression mixed with imagination…
a. The path taken,
b. Jumps or drops taken
c. Anything unique to a run.
All judges will independently score categories 2-5 on a scale of 1-10. The line score is also scaled 1-10.
 The line score will determine limits of scores in the other categories.
o Once the head judge determines the line score, the judges will not be able to score more than 3 points above the line value that’s chosen for each respective category.
 Example. If a skier skis a line valued at 5.2, then the highest score that skier can get in the other categories 8.2 points in each category.
All judges’ scores will be averaged for each run. Highest average score in each division is the winner.
Some things to remember:
1. We have a panel of judges who are all very experienced skiers. Most have judged this event for several years. These judges are independent of BBSEF. They are not coaches or parents of any athletes who might be competing.
2. Judge’s location will be marked at time of inspection. It’s the skier’s responsibility to know where the judges will be and to make sure they’re skiing where they can be seen.
3. This is a competition about quality skiing. Although Guts, air, tricks and style are factored in, we want to encourage the best skiing as explained in the 5 categories above.
4. This is not a race to the bottom. More aggressive skiing (if handled with control and without a fall) is good. However the runs are timed only to assure that each skier makes it down in the allowable timeframe for their division.
5. This isn’t just about taking the highest point line, or getting the biggest air, etc. While those are good if handled well, a fall or loss of control because someone’s skiing beyond their ability level, will most likely result in a much lower score.
6. Skiers will have a time limit. We’ll establish an acceptable timeframe that all skiers should be able to finish within. Obviously some of the younger age groups will have longer allowable times than the older groups.
a. If a skier is not able to finish in the allotted amount of time, then they’ll be scored on the run up until the point where they ran out of time, but will be penalized for not finishing.
7. This is about FUN! This is a way for skiers to challenge themselves in an arena they’re not used to. Inappropriate behavior or sportsmanship will be handled with disqualification…let’s not go there!
8. Bring your helmet…helmets are required!!!
9. Inverts…Inverted tricks are not allowed and anyone attempting inverted tricks will be disqualified from the event.
