The SARA Spring Board meeting will be held on Thursday, June 24 at 7pm via Zoom.  Pursuant to the SARA Bylaws, the offices up for election are Vice President and Treasurer.  One nomination has been received for each position: Elizabeth Lam (Massanutten) for Vice President and Ryan Schwarz (Timberline) for Treasurer.

Thank you to the entire SARA community for your part in completing a full season of racing this past winter despite the disruptions and precautions caused by COVID-19 .  The SARA Board and member mountains worked hard to plan for the season using guidance from US Ski & Snowboard, host mountains and state and local authorities.  The season didn't look the same as past seasons, but with everyone's understanding, it was still SARA racing - fast skiing on southern mountains!
