Woodland Loppet!! Diggins and Randall take GOLD!!
Feb 182013

A huge thank you to all involved for such a wonderful season!  This has been a very special year and the coaching staff has enjoyed working with each of you.  Just because the season is over though – that doesn’t mean that skiing is done for the year.  Woodland still has some fantastic snow and beautiful conditions – keep skiing, there are also some other excellent trails around including Lake Maria State Park in Monticello ( 26 km of skating and classical trails) or you could check out some classic only trails at Sand Dunes State Forest in Zimmerman.  There are many other trails around the state to explore and ski so take some time while we have snow and explore a new space.  Also – if you see the groomers out – make sure you thank then for all their hard work and time, and to the new parent-groomers – thank you!  Have fun and thank you for your time and work on the trails!

Some housekeeping things for the team –

  • The banquet will be on March 17th at 4:30(mingle and set-up time at 4:00) in the cafeteria at Elk River High School.  You will be getting more information this week about it.  We do the banquet pot-luck style so each group of students will be responsible for bringing a dish/drink of some sort.
  • Wax Room Clean-Up/Equipment and Uniform Turn-in/Awards Voting/Storage Wax Application – All of that will be taking place on Thursday after school.  We need everyone’s help with this to make it go quickly and get things cleaned up in and cleared out of the room.  Come down after school and we’ll get started around 2:25.  If you have checked out a pair of skis from the school, we’ll get them returned and apply storage wax to get them ready for the summer.  If you would like to keep skiing on them – that is wonderful – but you’ll need to talk to coach K that day so we can get that marked down and then arrange a time later for storage wax and return of the equipment.  Also, make sure to bring your uniform (washed!!) to return.  Once everything is done we’ll be voting for team awards to be given out.
  • March – March can be a great time to get out skiing!  After talking to many people at the race on Saturday, there is HUGE interest to have one more race at Woodlands in March (if we have snow).  Keep your ears open – and your eyes on the weather.  We are tentatively planning for March 16th but we will know more the first couple weeks of March.  We’ll need lots of help again – thank you to all that showed up on Saturday to put on a great event!  Last year we were able to squeeze in a race with three days notice when the snow finally came…we’ll see what the weather brings this year.  With what we earned at the last race – it looks like we’ll be able to purchase about 4 pairs of skis for the team – that is awesome!!

We’ll see you on Thursday – have a wonderful free day and get out skiing if you have the chance, it is beautiful!
