I know I have heard all the reasons but it doesn't matter. Mid October sucks to have the US Championships. I can tell you I know of many riders, especially kids, who are not getting to be on the water like they should.
1. This year is really an exception but Oct. is usually too cold to ride.
2. It gets dark too early after school and work
3. Kids have too many school activities that interfere with training.

The US Championships should be when everyone is peeking. I can tell you of several kids that have ridden just a couple of times the 30 days prior to tournament. True, there will be riders and skiers who have stayed on top of their game and will kill it. But most people are not riding like they were at the end of the season. Interview the kids out there this year and ask them how much time they are riding compared to summer.

Come on, figure out a way to have it no later than mid September. Even August would be ok and I know all about the states trying to finish up and get the paper work in.

Take a poll- who wants to move the date to be before October? Please respond only if you ride INT and would actually go if you qualified.

PS- INT is still number one and everyone will have a blast as always. INT rocks- it would just rock better in September.
