Smile US Open Inline 2011

We are planning on holding the US Open Inline on the West Coast in 2011. No time has been set yet, but we would like to avoid being too close to Regionals and other events for both ice and rollers. We also wanted to avoid conflicts with the Paris Open and Denora.

We haven't formulated requirements yet and are looking for ideas and locations. It would be good to pin everything down by the end of September including Sanctions application. We can hold it outdoors, which was our original plan, if the venue meets USARS sanctions requirements, which is basically a safe skating surface, i.e. no cracks, oil spills, slippery spots, etc. Hockey rink size would be ideal. We may or may not add more events or may coordinate with other groups to make a bigger fun event.

The following year it will be in the East.

An RFP should be ready for responses by the middle of Summer for rinks and clubs to respond to. If you want to get involved in the planning or contribute ideas just send an email to usfifs.org at the info email address. You don't need to belong to any organization to help out.
