2014 Race Schedule
The 2014 Race Schedule is beginning to take shape. Region II is currently working to have a season opening event on February 15 & 16 at Havasu (Nautical Inn). This would be followed by Parker March 8 & 9 and the Havasu Boat Show weekend on April 12 & 13. San Diego on May 3 & 4 along with Lake Perris on June 7 & 8 are moving forward as well. Complete schedule will be available soon.
Mandatory Motor Vehicle Review (MVR) for Drivers
As previously communicated, USAWS is requiring all boat drivers to pass a MVR Review, prior to participation. This MUST be completed by all NWSRA drivers as well. Reviews are valid for 2 years. These take several days and up to a week or so to complete, so please submit sooner rather than later. Follow the instructions below. These links also provide additional details on the review and process.
The screening agency will only notify the applicant if they fail the review.
Online Merchandise Sales
The NWSRA will now offer a service for race teams to sell their team shirts online via the NWSRA web site. If interested, please use the "Contact Us" to request details. Please note that this service is being offered to current NWSRA members only and is for ski race team shirts only. Business shirts, or non-ski race related shirts will not be allowed.
To Brett Kennedy and Dawn Wallace who have been named NWSRA Athlete's of the Year. Each will be recognized at the USAWS Annual Winter Meeting in Florida in January.
