Finally, I appologize for the delay! After some back and forth the banquet date is set for March 19th in the Elk River High School commons/cafeteria area from 5:30pm to about 7pm. This will be a potluck for all families. To divide up the food so that people don’t bring all desserts…
- Middle School – Bring plastic cups/plates/utensils
- Freshman – Bring beverages or salads
- Sophomore – Bring appetizers
- Juniors – Main meal type foods
- Seniors – Bring desserts or main meal foods
We look forward to seeing you there! If you still have rollerskis from last summer – you need to bring them to the banquet. Even if you plan on renting a pair again and want to just keep them at home… Bring them in!! Also, if you missed the equipment check in please arrive 15min early to check in your equipment before the banquet.
Our very own Dan Janasz is athlete of the week! Check out this news article: CLICK HERE.
