There are advantages to making the trip to Port Alice.

_We are looking at one or two more DH races as this calendar is not yet final. _

If this would involve Mt. Prevost I would thank you for ever.

It would be nice to support beginners, youth, and senior citizens like yourself, but at the same time too many categories can be cumbersome and not always well attended.

Not fair to have 20 in a category one race and the next race have double or triple that many.

We will look at our previous years to see what would work best.
