Welcome to
US Speedskating Masters News

Masters Only LT Camps

To all USS registered Masters (who opted to remain on the list),

As it is the start of a new season, please remember to renew your USS membership sooner rather than later. Since membership is on a fixed calendar date (your membership expired June 30th), it doesn’t gain you anything to wait until later to renew. Renewing sooner will allow me to get a more current mailing list and any changes to email addresses. Please do spread the word to your fellow Masters to make sure they are aware of this newsletter and to update their contact information with USS. You may also forward this email to them and they can add themselves to the list once they have access to the email.

For those who do not wish to receive these mails, you may still opt out on your own by following the links at the bottom. We will continue do our best to make sure you do not receive more mails if you have been removed. If for some reason you continue to receive even after “removing” yourself, please send an email to me via my personal email address below.

There will be one MASTERS-only LT Speedskating camp which I have organized in SLC for this season. Details have been finalized and a link will be posted on the USS calender which will simply provide a link to the Olyparks website.

This will be the 3rd Masters Camp run by Olympic champion Derek Parra in SLC at the Olympic Oval. This year it is early due to the fact that it is an Olympic season with many competitions taking place in SLC. September 18-22, so mark your calendars and make your plans! Registration will be closed effective September 1st, so don’t delay! Derek’s camp will be run and hosted by the Oval. On-line registration is up on the UtahOlympicLegacy website. But if you desire, you may go to the following link, download, print the PDF registration form and mail it in.

Derek has some new instructional methods which are just being implemented. Be the first of the masters to gain this new knowledge and ideas.The website gives an outline of the schedule with more details available on the PDF registration form.Last year we had a nice group dinner at a BBQ place organized by the nice folks (Eric and Kimberly Kraan) at the SkateNow (http://www.theskatenowshop.com/) shop. We are working on details which will be available at the camp for those who wish to participate. Other benefits may also be forthcoming.

There is no “host” hotel for this event. The Hampton Inn located in West Jordan is the closest hotel and has nice rooms, decent rates, with a shopping mall with plenty of food choices (restaurants) as well as supermarkets nearby. This hotel also features a breakfast included in the lobby area.
