So Close!

Uncategorized Comments Off

It was wonderful to see all of you at the info meeting on Monday!  Wow – what a great and exciting group we will have this year.  That you for your patience with Coach K’s voice – she is recovering quickly and is greatly looking forward to Monday!!

Just a few reminders to lead you into the weekend:

  • Forms and fees need to be turned into the office before you are allowed to practice with the team.  You can pick up forms at the high school and drop them off to the main office or turn them into your school and they’ll send them through inter-school mail to us.  If you have any questions – please don’t hesitate to contact Coach K, her number is on the “general info” packet you received at the meeting or can be downloaded here.
  • The first big ski swap is on Saturday at Pioneer Midwest in Osseo.  It will run from 8am to 4pm.  Best selection will be early and you never know what will be available.  Make sure that you have anything that you are looking to purchase fit properly – this is an investment that you are making, don’t rush it.
  • Team night at Pioneer Midwest will be on Friday the 18th at around 5:30.  They’ll have pizza and beverages for the team and will put on a wax demo so you can be refreshed with (or learn) how to wax your skis.  (You’ll need to wax them often during the season.)  It is also a great time to look at options for equipment and they’ll have extra sales people on staff if you need anything.  There is no push to purchase anything though!
  • Practice starts Monday!!  You’ll need tennis shoes, outdoor clothing for cold weather, a sunny disposition and all your forms turned in for the season.  :-)   We’ll get you a locker right off the bat and get started on prepping some great nordic skiers!

Looking forward to seeing you all on Monday!  Enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend!!
