    RShea you make some real good points. It is a difficult system to categorize because there are so many different styles of racer that participate. Seems like being under a certain HC, which should be about 50% lower than where the age group platinum HC's start, might separate the professionals or true experts from those who just get lucky every once in a while.

    Right now, a Nastar racer with only three races this season has participated more than 75% of the overall field. This isn't about skill or performance potential. It is about having those who don't compete much being ranked against others who also don't have the opportunity to race often. As it stands, a racer doesn't even get a state or national ranking until he or she has participated in at least three races. At season's end, that will certainly leave out over half the Nastar field. Call it whatever you like, there should be a category for those of us who just can't get out that much. I'll be lucky if I get a chance to ski/race twice this season. Given that, I'm not going to bother because I'm a competitive guy and half the fun to me is seeing how I stack up against the other racers in the rankings. Give me a division where the other racers compete just a few times a year and it will be worth it to come back a time or two. I'm sure there are thousands of other racers across the country who feel the same way. OG
