Unpaid plug for AXCS

Why Should I Join AXCS? WIIFM*?


To help you train and race better:
You get a subscription to The Master Skier. And if you're a racer, you need a subscription to The Master Skier - it's that good. (Go to their web site and read a sample of their articles if you have any doubt).
You also get a subscription to the AXCS News. The last issue had articles about the National and World Masters Championships, cold supplements, summaries of recent sports science research ("...This study suggest you won't do additional damage by exercising sore muscles..."), ski tuning, group training ideas, and about rest and glycogen replenishment. You want this newsletter!

To keep you informed of racing opportunities:
AXCS chooses the site for the National Masters Championships (they choose Marquette, MI for the 2004 Masters!). They automatically send out applications for the championships, keeps you informed of rule changes (did you know there are four team categories?), and tells you how to get there and where to stay.
AXCS is also the USA representation to the World Masters Association and provides you with up to date World Master Championship information. 

Gives you a free car!
Ok, not really, but the AXCS VIP Partners Program will get you a great discount on a Suburu - up to $3,500 savings.

Helps your community and club/team:
With Suburu, AXCS provides matching grants for local grooming and educational projects.
AXCS is also developing group training materials for use by local clubs. These materials can help you get your club of team motivated!

Lets you ski in the summer!
