Dear coach,
I would like to invite you to the 2009 U.S. Cross Country Coaches Education Conference from September 25-27 in downtown Minneapolis.  U.S. cross country skiing is in a new era.  We have seen a consistent rise in World Cup points, World Cup podiums and an overall swell of hard work and pride.  To give you an objective measure of our improvement as a ski nation, we have won the first, second, third, fourth and fifth World Cup medals after 23 years without more than a few top fifteen results.  We went from scoring an average of 40 World Cup points a year to scoring over 600 in each of the last three years.  You are a part of this rising momentum.  We have found some success and won medals at the highest level of the sport, but to truly succeed and to succeed consistently in the long term, we must continue to fight, continue to learn and work even harder together.  The 2009 conference is a great opportunity to come together to learn and to plan our attack on the next stage of developing the sport in the U.S.  We can keep this momentum building, we can give our next generation of skiers every opportunity they need to succeed, but it won't happen without you, it won't happen without effort.  We can win, we can win fairly, we can win ethically, and the only way we can do it is together.  I sincerely hope to see you in Minneapolis.
Saturday afternoon's curriculum during the U.S. Cross Country Coaches Education Conference will include an "Industry Hour." Twelve mini-expo tables will be available to the first registering companies for a one-hour product demonstration.  During the time, the microphone will be passed around to each company for a brief personal and product introduction.  Contact to reserve your table.  Cost is $200.
