NORBA Changes Schedule (Again)

NORBA announced another set of schedule changes yesterday, ADDING A NORCAL RACE! Unfortunately, this appears to be the already scheduled Cougar Mountain Classic, but it still is good news. They also moved the dates and venue for the season opener back to the original May 5 - 7, 2006 weekend. Now the opener will be held in Fontana, west of Los Angles, instead of San Dimas (which was closer to San Diego). The new schedule (with competition types) is as follows:
NMBS#1 May 5-7: Southridge Park - Fontana, Calif. (XC, ST, DH, MX, SD)
NMBS#2 June 10-11: Sugar Mountain Resort - Banner Elk, N.C. (XC, ST, DH, DS, SD)
NMBS#3 June 17-18: Mount Snow Resort - West Dover, Vt. (XC, ST, DH, DS, MX, SD)
NMBS#4 July 8-9: Deer Valley Resort - Park City, Utah (MA, XC, ST, DH, DS, SD)
NMBS#5 July 15-16: Infineon Raceway – Sonoma, Calif. (XC, DH, MX)
NMBS#6 August 5-6: Brian Head Resort - Brian Head, Utah (MA, XC, ST, DH, DS, SD)
NMBS#7 August 12-13: Snowmass Resort - Aspen, Colo. (XC, ST, DH, DS, SD)
NORBA uses the following event key: XC (Cross Country), ST (Short Track), DH (Downhill), MX (usually MTNX for Mountain Cross), DS (Dual Slalom), SD (Super D), MA (Marathon).

I'm sure we'll see a few more changes before the season starts, but this appears to be some progress after last season's much criticized schedule.
