Welcome to the 2019/20 season of racing and going to be a good one if the snow continues like Thursday in Collingwood!
Master’s Competitor Card:
A reminder to register online at https://registration.alpineontario.ca/default.aspx for the upcoming season by selecting the Master’s National Card (select the ‘AOA 2019/20 Season Registration Masters’ program) or the Master’s FIS Card (select the ‘AOA 2018/20 Season Registration (FIS)’ program). The Master’s National or FIS card is the best option if you intend racing in more than one event – refer to http://www.alpineontario.ca/online-program-registration/alpine-ontario-fees/ for the fee schedule and reasons for paying ACA, AOA and division fees. A Master’s competitor card is required for sanctioned events only e.g. Ontario or National Championships.
Note: If the card is purchased during December or prior, then every Friday your card is activated by AOA, but from January onwards it is activated on demand; check for activation on the new website http://alpinepoints.ca/racerProfile/
Master’s FIS Card vs Master’s National Card:
The Masters’ National Committee recommends you purchase a Master’s FIS card for a variety of reasons:
- The Canadian Alpine Masters receive $10 for every Master’s FIS card purchased and $5 for every Master’s National card purchased, for a total of $15 received from ACA. Obviously, it helps the Canadian Alpine Masters if you purchase the Master’s FIS card vs the Master’s National card.
- At the upcoming World Winter Masters’ Games (WWMG), being held from 10-19 January 2020, in Austria, racers holding a Master’s FIS card will start each race in their age category before racers without this card.
- The purchase of a Master’s FIS card includes a type of liability insurance coverage deemed acceptable by the WWMG organization for all their races.
- At the four FIS Masters’ Cup (FMC) races being held from 19-23 February 2020, in Stoneham QC, racers holding a Master’s FIS card will also start in each FIS race in their age category before racers holding a weekend or national card.
- Ages 18 to 30: You must be 30 years or older on 31 December 2019 in order to obtain a Master’s FIS card but only 18 to obtain a Master’s regional or national card.
Note: Racers who wish to participate in any Masters’ FIS races outside of Canada require a Master’s FIS card.
