Congratulations to Dallas Erdahl and Ryan Trapp for winning the annual Ride ‘n Tie competition. It was a close race with both teams fighting hard but Elk River and the “Fighting Penguins” ended in the lead, well done! The traveling trophy will return to Elk River for the year. We had a small group today but the raced well in the chilly temps. Pictures are up now, check the photos page above.
We have a busy week coming up with the Wild Turkey Wattle. We’ll need help on Thursday morning to get things set up and the timing taken care of. We should have you on your way by 9:30am. That gives you plenty of time to get cleaned up and help your family with the turkey dinner. We’ll get you more details during the week. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Well, it seems fitting that the weather has changed drastically in the past few days – from almost 70 early in the week to the prediction of snow for tonight and into tomorrow/Sunday. While we are filled with anticipation for the potential snowfall, we are also trying to keep ourselves realistic with the fact that ski-able snow may be a little ways off yet. (That is depending on which meteorologist you are listening to…)
In the meantime, practice will be getting underway on Monday so make sure you have running shoes and clothes to be outside – for any weather condition. We will meet in room 234, Ms. Anderson’s room, at 2:30 to get lockers handed out and forms turned in. We will change and get ready for practice after that. Middle school skiers: we will meet you by door D (the athletic door) to get you lockers and then you will join the team for practice.
If you have questions, please contact one of the coaches – our numbers are on the general info packet you received at the meeting, you can also access that on the pre-season forms page above.
