    Have any dates been determined yet for the Midwest and Eastern Opens in 2011? I sure hope Nastar will hold them again, the Midwest Open was a blast.

    The dates for Nationals are already set, but I don't see any info on the Opens for next season.

    I don't know if this year will be like last, but they didn't announce the dates for the Opens until late November, IIRC. Yeah, I too, hope they do it again. I really want to do it again. Can't wait...

    I'd be interested in hearing of possible locations.

    Ditto. I'm thinking I may only be interested in going to Nationals every other year, but if they have another Midwest Open, I'm there.

    I think getting this type of information out late leads to poor attendance. People like me, and many others, plan way ahead. I think most women do frankly. Many people are planning winter vacations now.

    Sure hope there are Opens this season! I would like another all day clinic with AJ Kitt and the Crystal Mountain ski school guys in addition to the racing.

    Last year, I was told that Crystal has a 2 year agreement with Nastar to hold the open. Not sure if that is true. You may want to contact Crystal Mountain's Winter Sports Director, he may be able to confirm if it is going to be at Crystal. Even if he cannot give you a definate answer, he may also know of the most likely weekend. Just keep in mind that although they do return calls, they are not there full time in the summer.

    Hope this helps :smile:

    I too hope they announce soon. the OVSC Race Chair was thinking of making the open an OVSC weekend ski trip which could add at least 30 racers, (30% bump over last year) plus more skiers from the Perfect North Youth Program ..........but without dates, hard to do........and if schedules come out and there are conflicts like last year, we will only get 6 or so up there like last year.........

    Thanks for the heads up Glenna. Here's the link to the NASTAR Facebook page.

    One of the folks commenting there put together and nice map showing distribution of qualifiers for last year's nationals. Interestingly 49 of the 50 states were represented. Only South Dakota failed to produce a single qualifier.

    Windham in New York did a great job last year. A few more days like today (see below) and I can't wait for the return of winter.
