I like the 3-year running average idea. I also like the idea of having trials mid-Winter. The only flaw I see here is, what if a resort's pacesetter leaves over the summer and they get a new pacesetter - what handicap does he/she use for the first half of the winter?
Is the result simply that I get some mental reinforcement of the fact that I need to work on my tight turns? Or am I missing a next step that gives me a consistent number from race to race?
