From Peri Kinder, August 13, 2009:
Dear US Speedskating Members,
In partnership with the USOC, United Airlines is proud to provide a travel discount to US Speedskating athletes, members, staff and families. This discount is good for any USOC recognized event on the US Speedskating schedule, including short and long track U.S. Championships, American Cup Series, Junior Speedskating Events and more.
To receive the discount, call the United Olympic Desk to book domestic or international tickets at 800-841-0460 Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. (ET). The $25 booking fee will be waived for all members utilizing the Olympic Desk for USOC recognized events.
Members can also book domestic or Canadian tickets online at www.united.com/usoc and receive a 5% discount off the lowest applicable Internet fares. A link to this United Airlines site can be found on the US Speedskating website's sponsor page. By booking travel online, members will receive the lowest guaranteed United.com fares and will never pay a booking fee.
When booking a ticket, please provide the US Speedskating discount code 565MV to ensure the proper discount.
USS is excited about this partnership and hopes members utilize the travel discount to attend many speedskating events during the 2009-2010 season.
