Subaru Race and Ace Announces Two New Events for 2006Bend, OR - October 29, 2005
Organizers of the Subaru Race and Ace announced today they are expanding to a total of three northwest events for the 2006 season. In addition to Central Oregon, North America's premier golf and ski competition will host events in both Washington and Idaho.
Race and Ace attracts competitors from across the country as they ski or snowboard a giant slalom course in the morning and golf 18 holes in the afternoon. The one-day event includes three divisions of competition: elite individual, two-person teams, and four-person teams.
The Subaru Race and Ace has been hugely popular since its 2003 inaugural season, with the field of competitors more than quadrupling in just three years. Race and Ace Founder and President Doug Fish has received inquiries from several ski and golf resorts interested in hosting an event. "It's been exciting, but we really want to focus on strategic growth and that means building quality partnerships with the top resorts in a market. Fortunately, we have been able to accomplish this in both Washington and Idaho."
The Washington event will take place on Saturday, April 1st. Snoqualmie Summit Ski Resort, located just 30 miles east of Seattle, will host the ski portion. Competitors will then head to Newcastle Golf Club - Coal Creek Course near Bellevue for 18 holes at Seattle's highest rated public golf course.
On Saturday, May 6th, Race and Ace will return to Central Oregon, where competitors will compete in a dual giant slalom at the northwest's largest mountain, Mt. Bachelor. Participants will then golf 18 holes on Sunriver Resort's John Fought-designed Meadows course.Idaho's Tamarack Resort will host the third and final Race and Ace event on Saturday, May 20th. Tamarack Resort, the first all-season resort to be permitted in the U.S. in more than 23 years, has received national attention for having not one, but three spectacular crown jewels: a world-class ski mountain, a Robert Trent Jones II signature golf course and beautiful Lake Cascade.
This year, The Race and Ace TV show will consist of three half hour segments, one for each northwest event. In addition to local coverage, the shows will air on Fox Sports Northwest in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Alaska to over 4 million households.
The deadline for entry in the Subaru Race and Ace is two weeks prior to the each event. The early registration fee of $229 per person ends one month prior to each event and includes skiing and golf, a Friday evening pre-event registration and cocktail reception, participant gift bag, and an awards dinner following the competition.
