  One 3000m exhibition will be run mid-session Saturday directly after a resurface. This will be run as a relay if enough coaches sign up!  We hope that the format will encourage all coaches to show the kids how to have a good time whether you are in great shape or need a push to get moving.  ALL questions about this exhibition should be sent to CRS coach Pezz at zepol.wube+CRS@gmail.com 

Land of Lincoln Format:  Both novice class B & class A skaters will race throughout Saturday and Sunday.  Racing will follow the “all points” format.  The longest distance will serve as a tiebreaker.  Heats and finals will be run for all skaters.  The class A super finals for the longest race are based on points awarded in the prior races.  The Meet Director may choose to combine groups, omit your group, or completely run the meet as an ability meet based on the breakdown and separation of skaters and groups. This includes moving you to a novice group or to an A group. 

Heartland Racing Series (HRS) Format:This series will be run in conjunction with Land of Lincoln. In order to qualify to skate in the HRS, a skater must be age 12 or older as of 7/1/19, and have achieved a 1000m seed time, within the last year, of 1:48 for men, 1:58 for ladies. Other regulations governing HRS participation are contained on the last pages of this registration form and the HRS Facebook page.Please note that the HRS is open to any qualified skater nationwide or from other countries who wish to participate in this series.

Awards (Land of Lincoln and HRS):  Skaters must race all distances to qualify for an overall award or Fastest 500 award unless injured or ill.  There will be trophies for 1st through 3rd places overall within each age division including HRS.  Ribbons will also be given for individual races 1st through 6th places for all Class B and Class A Pee Wee through Junior D categories.   Additionally, the fastest 500-meter time will receive the Chile Blair Award for the women and the Bill Markland Award for the men.   

Fun and Relay Races: Time permitting;there may be a 2000m fun race for Midget and Pony.  Again, time permitting, there may be an additional 333 and a 3000m relay race for Juvenile and older divisions.  Relay teams will include four skaters, and all are encouraged to join a team.
