Start Info:

Tentative Friday Starts for the 2005 Team Trials are now available.

Starts are planned to begin at 2 PM on Friday, 10 AM on Saturday, and 9 AM on Sunday.

Day 1 Starts (all on one Sprint course, A-event)
Day 2 Starts (US Short Champs)
This is the US Short Champs, so USOF rules 13.1 & 13.2 are in full effect. Starts are to be designed by the US Short Champs event staff (not the US Team) and the plan is for it to be a random draw, with some separation of top-ranked competitors. There will be no segregation of US-WOC or US-Champs eligibles from others on the start list.
Day 3 Starts (Long, A)

Scoring List Potential Exceptions:

The following people are eligible as a potential exception to the Team Trials scoring list due to outstanding performance in the Rankings and the previous US Champs. (See the Rules for details.) Note that this is tentative, as the the rankings may change before the Team Trials.

The review panel that will consider exceptions will consist of Don Davis, Peggy Dickison, Vladimir Gusiatnikov, Joe Scarborough and Peter Gagarin.

If you would like to petition for an exception, please send your petition to Peter Gagarin, ESC Chair. ESC Member List
