Dear Masters,


Please see attached the Invitation for the FMC Events that will take place in Cortina D'Ampézzo (ITA) 9th to 11th February, 2018.

As they expect to receive a large number of participants, the OC was kind enough to anticipate the preparation of two separate courses also for SG and GS according to the Safety Recommendation approved by the Sub-Committee for Masters Racing in its last meeting in Zuerich during the October FIS Fall Meetings.
