Qualification: Advancement to Regionals is based on the Ranking List. All skiers ranked Level 6 in any event or overall as of January 8th, 2018 qualify for Regionals.
At the Cut Off Date the Ranking List Average of the last ranked skier in each division in slalom, tricks, jump and overall will be established as the Cut Off Average (COA) for that division.

Last Chance Qualification: After the Cut Off Date any skiers not qualified via the Ranking List may still qualify for Regionals through 3 last chance qualifying methods (LCQs):
1. Increases your average equal to or above the COA any time after the Cut Off Date.
2. Record a score equal to or above the COA at any tournament class (C) or above after the Cut Off Date.
3. Place in the top 3 at your State Tournament.

*Subject to change based on entries


Based on the new cutoff date change for regionals, our web programmer has made the midwest regional qualifications live, he was not able to go retro active back to Aug 14, 2017 so he made the cutoff date today. So skiers can go and see if they are qualified now, just select the midwest regional in the tournament qualification filter and the far right column of rankings will show qualified or not.
To refresh our memories on the new entry deadline, the regional entry deadline is July 1st, after July 1st its a $25 late fee until July 23rd at which point the late fee is $25 plus $10 per day. The only except to all that is for skier who qualify after July 1st, they are only subject to the $10 per day after July 23rd. We will need good word of mouth on this new late fee and deadline structure.

and you can click on the link in that column to see further details, I will get an email out soon to congrat all those qualified.
