      Sorry you feel that way Jack. It’s not that they are not being acknowledged, it’s simply that the Beginner Women is a 12 race class, acknowledging the top 5 in the Women’s beginner. Women’s Beginner is scored 9-12 as it has been historically over the past 9 seasons, along with majority of the classes (Clydes, Single Speed, Kids, Juniors, …and the list goes on). Nothing has changed.

      Here’s some backstory to help you understand our rules: Last season, when we concepted the idea of a 1/2 series it was based on the sheer volume of beginner men and needing a gap bridger from Beg Men to Sport Men. (Truth be told, men have been, historically, too apt to underestimate their ability or over-compete for a “beginner” trophy. so we (a team of 1 woman and 2 men) created the “1/2 series”. We have always had a 12 race series for women, because it has never been necessary to shorten the women’s series nor made sense to shove women up into sport mid-season.

      We do apologize for any lack of clarity, it may have been confusing, as we’ve mentioned “Beginner and Intermediate” awards without the “Men” qualifier along the way in a few social and digital mentions. That will be clarified going forward.

      It’s a bummer to hear your disappointment, we’d prefer to help people understand with civil direct conversations, and more than happy to engage any concerns. I can assure you, with a wife and 3 girls of my own, and John having a identical female to male ratio in his family, we would be ill-served to live a chauvinist story in our lives.

      The women’s classes are doing well and very well-matched in the competition this year; we’re excited to be able to award the top 5 podiums at the end of the 12 race series.

      Have a great weekend Jack. You’re more than welcome to contact us through phone, email, or any other method available on the website, as we’re happy to answer and serve our racing family.
