Dear Wildwater Racers and Friends:

The NRC Glacier Breaker Race is next weekend (February 23-24). The slalom race is on Saturday and the Wildwater Classic Race on Sunday. I'm sure that there will be several wildwater racers practicing on Saturday. The first article in this E-zine includes some general information about the race and a link to the schedule and registration form. This is one more opportunity to hone your skills in a competitive environment in preparation for the USA Senior and Eastern Junior Team Trials.

Race Director Seth Eisner has been working hard on the organization for the USA Senior and Eastern Junior Team Trials. The second article in this E-zine has all of the details about this event - including the preliminary schedule, registration details and the selection criteria for the 2008 USA Senior and Junior Wildwater Teams.

The athletes who qualify for the 2008 US Junior Wildwater Team will have the opportunity to compete at the International Junior Wildwater Race in Buochs Switzerland this summer. See the article for more about this event.

We also bring you news about the 2008 Wausau Junior Olympics (JO) Festival. This event provides one more opportunity for national competition for our Junior wildwater athletes. Learn how you can qualify to participate in the Junior Olympics.

While you are at it, please review the Wildwater calendar for this year ( and let me know if I should add any races and/or training camps that I may have missed.
