Salut à tous les participants de ce forum ,

Premièrement, offrez-moi l'occasion de vous montrer ma gratitude pour chacune des très pertinentes connaissances que j'ai rencontrées sur cet impressionnant forum de discussions .

Je ne suis pas certaine d'être au meilleur section mais je n'en ai pas vu de meilleure .

Je proviens de Orleans, canada . J'ai 38 années et j'éduque cinq super enfants qui sont tous âgés entre 11 et 12 ans (1 est adopté). J'aime beaucoup les animaux et je fais de mon mieux de leur offrir les accessoires pour animaux qui leur rendent l'existance plus confortable.

Merci dès aujourd'hui pour toutes les excellentes débats à venir et je vous remercie surtout de votre compréhension pour mon français moins que parfait: ma langue de naissance est le mandarin et j'essaie d'éviter les erreurs mais c'est très compliqué !

Au plaisir!

Arthru

Your event has been awarded Major status, the only one in North America 2011. The European Major this year will be the European Championships, recently awarded to Grenoble. The ISSA World Ranking allows racers to earn Major points in only two disciplines per year, so participation in one of these two events are important to gain a good position in the World Ranking.

Not sure why but everytime i go back to that thread i need to ask for my user name and password?

If anyone is interested, world records should be set with 'clean runs', criddling makes it not the same coarse as the next run unless you hit the same cones, how could that ever be right?

Low participation in rule voting
On 12/19/2007 Pat Chewning wrote in from United States  (24.22.nnn.nnn)

PSR wrote: "However, I hope it dosen't continue like this, where one 'group' putting on events, states a 'rule', and it becomes sanctioned as LAW with less than 50% of elligible RACERS voting."

The 'group' is the members of the ISSA. The rules (LAW) only apply to ISSA events. 50% voting??? I only WISH it were anywhere near that high a percentage...

Do you have experience with any national or international sports organization or other volunteer group where you can get more than 50% of the eligible people to vote? Do you know how that is achieved? In my experience it is always just a few, interested, energetic people who vote or otherwise participate. That's just the way things are.

You can't really expect the interested, energetic, involved people in the ISSA to wait until there is over 50% of the RACERS to become involved before we move forward with the rule-making and other business of the ISSA? If we wait for this, NOTHING will get done.

The wheel-thing could have easily gone either way with a bit more participation. We opened the door, invited everyone, begged for participation -- did you vote?

Thanks, and Aloha
On 12/18/2007 PSR wrote in from United States  (75.68.nnn.nnn)

Pat, thanks {yet again} for your endless work in helping put together good, clear rules for the racers to go by.

I'm still ticked with 6-wheelers (or 8 wheelers, for that matter) being considred to be 'not' skateboards. The voting seemed very much like being in Florida's 4th Ward in '00... Disenfrachised dosen't even describe the inability to participate, but it's done. I'll still race in local NON ISSA races, and coach for tose who want to be at ISSA races. However, I hope it dosen't continue like this, where one 'group' putting on events, states a 'rule', and it becomes sanctioned as LAW with less than 50% of elligible RACERS voting. Especially if TRADITION or INNOVATION is tossed on it's ear to please a few. If these factors are ignored, we'll soon have NO CHANGE, and contests that have NO ROOTS. I've seen what that attitude has done to Snowboard Racing, I've fought that battle, too... And other than a few riders I've coached, I've LOST THE WAR. It's evident, too, just by how RACING is portrayed in SNOWBOARDING. Trust me, don't even go there, it's UGLY.
Good luck with the effort nonetheless, I hope it works out for the better, somehow.

And to all whom I've raced with, or met while Racing, THANK YOU!! + Merry Christmas!! You're all awesome, especially for JUST, ONLY, being the skaters you are!! Ride Fast, take Chances. :-D

ISSA SLALOM racing Rules Available
On 12/18/2007 Pat Chewning wrote in from United States  (24.22.nnn.nnn)

The ISSA Rules are now published. They are available at:

Click here for link

Click here for link


The best way to print these rules is by using your printer driver to make a booklet (2 pages per sheet, landscape paper, fold in middle). This will print all 16 pages on 4 sheets of paper, 1/2 sheet per page, so it can be folded in a booklet form.

If your printer cannot handle printing in booklet form, then you can conventionally print the rules on either 8 sheets (duplex -- one page on each side), or 16 sheets (simplex -- one page per sheet of paper).

Contest organizers and racers are encouraged to become familiar with these rules, as ISSA sanctioned events will be run using these rules. (Minor exceptions as indicated on the contest sanction application are allowed.)

ISSA Rules -- voting complete
On 11/30/2007 Pat Chewning wrote in from United States  (24.22.nnn.nnn)

I want to thank everyone who participated in the rules update process -- those who voted, those who made proposals for changes, those who pointed out inconsistencies and problems, those who made arguments for/against various options.

The results can be viewed at www.slalomskateboarder.com -- in the "Members Voting" area.

The next step will be to incorporate the will of the members (the outcome of the voting) into the rules. The ISSA Board of Directors will then review the final rule book to make sure it matches the voting results, and then it will be published.

Again, Thank you for participating.

-- Pat

Banked Slalom
On 6/18/2007 Pat Chewning wrote in from United States  (15.252.nnn.nnn)

The ISSA does not recognize the banked slalom as a separate discipline.

A banked slalom race could be tight, hybrid (special), GS, Super-GS It all depends on the steepness, length, and cone spacing.

Ditch or "banked" slalom racing
On 1/8/2007 Pat Chewning wrote in from United States  (67.189.nnn.nnn)

I received a question from a race organizer in New Mexico where they like to race in ditches (banked concrete) rather than on roads or sidewalks.

If he applies for an ISSA sanction for his event (GS race on banked ditch), should it be considered just as though it were held on a street?

My personal opinion is YES, because the similarities outweigh the differences:
Cones, cone penalties, downhill incline, turns, speed, starting line, finish line, timing, long race course (compared to tight slalom) .... all of these are indistinguishable from a "normal" GS race.

But I'd like to hear other opinions on this.

Would it make a difference if he were applying for a higher status (MAJOR, MAIN), rather than a lower status (PRIME, BASIC, PLAIN) ??

What do we say, do events held on a ditch count?

In 2007, ISSA contest sanction applications in North America will be handled by the 3-person Contest Coordiantion team of: Chris Barker, Eddy Martinez, Pat Chewning. A similar body is being organized for Europe.


After considering the information in the application for status, the contest coordinators will assign a status to the race (Major, Main, Prime, Basic ... these determine the World Ranking points possible for each race).

Please apply early enough to attain the status you are seeking: Major -- 4 months Main -- 3 Months Prime -- 2 Months Basic--none

Obtain the sanction application here and send to Pat Chewning, Chris Barker, or Eddy Martinez:

Leo, some junior hacker deleted some forums and caused some other trouble, so I needed to restore the latest backup, merge it with the current data and at the same time update the forum software to the latest version.

As you've most certainly seen, it's up again since some time.
