Junior committee: Tom Carey, JR Wolff, Bill Morck, Fiona Lohman, Connie Fenton, Phil White. The primary discussion dealt with juniors paying club dues (in addition to $10.00 Grand Nordic membership) which would in turn cover a small part of the coaching expenses. All jr. club skiers in Colorado, and the rest of the U.S., pay dues to race in USSA events which qualify them for Junior Olympics. The lowest dues for J2 & older (14 & up) skiers in CO are $425 in Crested Butte, to over $1,000 in Aspen & Steamboat. This covers coaching, wax & travel. Phil is compiling a proposal to show why club dues are a necessary step in the growth of the jr. program, and what the skier gets for their dues.

There will be a club meeting for all junior skiers & their parents in early Oct., probably the week of the 8th, to be set very soon. Any jr. skier planning to race in RMD/USSA races needs to attend.
