Greetings Eastern Region skiers/officials: The annual Winter Meeting will be held remotely on January 8, 2022, starting at 9:00a.m. A link to the meeting will be posted at a later time. If you are qualified and interested in being an official at the 2022 Regionals or Nationals, please email me easternevp.@gmail.com
Additionally, to ALL skiers over 18 years old, wishing to participate in sanctioned events in the 2022 season, you MUST complete the SafeSport training. Below is the link located on the USA-WSWS webpage.
Note: please forgive any omissions as the minutes were recreated from memory. If you recall something noteworthy, please make those additions in the comment section.
This change will permit the most flexibility moving forward for the Council to determine State representation, and removes the necessity of involving the USA-WSWS Board of Directors if we ever need to address representation in the future. NOTE: changes to the Policy & Procedures will be an action item for the Winter Meeting.
Congratulations to Karen L. Melnik for being elected EVP.
New contact list and minutes will be posted soon.
Here are the brackets:
1) Dan Warner 110.75 (2.75@39)
8) Zach Carpenter 93.5 (3.5@35)
2) Becky Bartlett 84 (6@28)
7) Justin Campfield 95.25 (5.25@35)
3) Dana Hinman 103 (1@39)

Each skier is skiing against their own handicap, with the skier in each bracket that does the best against their handicap advancing. For example, if Becky Bartlett were to score 2@32 (+2 above her handicap), while Justin Campfield scored 5@35 (.25 below his handicap), Becky would advance.
Adults will be competing for a cash-prize purse of nearly $1,000, while juniors will be competing for trophies.
Our juniors had a great showing at the 2021 Eastern Regional Championships in Avon, CT. There were 59 junior competitors. The Avon Old Farms Skiers put on a fantastic junior’s party onsite at the Pond, with treats and activities including pizza, snow cones, popcorn, water mats, trampoline, movie night, and lots of fun for everyone. The raffle raised close to $800 for the Eastern Region Junior Development Program.
