Western Region Nordic TD/OC Training

November 8

“Attendance” at a seminar is required every 4 years to maintain status as a level 1 or 2 Nordic TD, but we hope the content, particularly the last day will be valuable for all Nordic TD’s. In addition the course is recommended for Nordic competition committee and organizing committee members, and we hope that several folks “attend” from each race venue. Please pass this announcement along to any interested parties.
Meeting Dates:  Tues 11/8 , Thur. 11/10, Tues 11/15, and Thur 11/17.
Meeting Times:  7:30pm – 10:00pm
All of the virtual seminars will be accessed through the registration link below. Once you have registered, you will receive a link to the meetings.
