got it a-rolling now!

It may be time to drag the fields, but SKIJOR USA
isn't dragging their feet. . . 

Our By-Laws
have been posted on the Skijor USA website.
To show races just how dedicated we are to delivering on our word,
we spelled out Member Race Benefits in our by-laws.
While Qualifying Races have the most benefits,
Associate Races also gain significant advantages!

We encourage both races who have already committed and those that are in the process of finalizing their plans for 2019 to take a look!

Our Rules & Regs
will be posted as soon as our Advisory Committee meets
and votes on some outstanding issues.  
(Last week's meeting was postponed due to scheduling conflicts.)

Our Team
continues to speak with new SJUSA race venues in the
Northwest, the Southwest and the Midwest.
Our Championship Finals is also still to be announced.
Once we get the green light from organizers and have set dates
we will share these races with the community.

Our Sponsorship Packet
is continuing to strengthen with input from top marketing executives.  
We will not be releasing this to the public, but will keep you all informed as to our progress in obtaining Regional and National Sponsors.

Our Championship Trophy
is taking shape!
We are working with designers at Tiffany & Company
to create a base for the vintage crystal horse head
pictured above which was made by Tiffany & Company in Italy.

Thank you for your patience in waiting for this truly outstanding trophy to be unveiled.  The search has taken three years, and perhaps it is fitting that it did not begin to emerge until now that Skijor USA has been created and a
2019 Championship Final will be held based on Regional Qualifiers! 

You will see in our By-Laws that we are also using the term
~ Triple Cross ~
to describe our SJUSA skijoring events.
We hope that the community with be open-minded to this term.

We chose it because Triple Cross connotes an equine event, Triple Crown,
and it also connotes racing events such as ski cross and motocross.

We also thought it appropriate since. . . 
Our teams are made up of three members: Horse, Rider & Skier
Our courses require three challenges: Jumps, Gates & Rings

So watch as the "Triple Cross Pro Skijoring" trophy takes shape
and equine skijoring joins the many, many other sports represented by
the unparalleled work of an iconic American jeweler.

Here is a brief history of trophies created by Tiffany & Company!

The great legacy began in 1860 with a horse racing trophy and expanded to include the oldest of the Triple Crown events, the Belmont Stakes.
Then in 1888, Tiffany & Co was commissioned to create the first world championship baseball trophy which led to the World Series Trophy.
In 1909, Tiffany's created the auto-racing trophy awarded to the driver of the Indianapolis 500.  Today Tiffany's furnishes the NASCAR trophy.
In 1959, Tiffany's entered the world of college football and then came to create the famous Vince Lombardi Super Bowl Trophy in 1967.
In 1978, Tiffany's created a trophy for basketball's NBA Championship.
In 1984, Tiffany's created the New York Marathon Trophy.
Other notable trophies created by Tiffany and Company include:
US Open Tennis Championship
Defender's Trophy
(the race that precedes the America's Cup)
Major League Soccer Cup Champion
Triple Crown of Polo Championship
Yachting, Rowing & Horse Racing Trophies
continue to grace the halls and cases of many clubs around the world.
