Reminders! SNOW!! For the UP…
Nov 232013

We are going to need a lot of help this week with the Wild Turkey Wattle.  We have close to 300 people registered including the kids race, it will be a great event but a very crazy morning.  We are going to need all hands in for this.  Skiers with families that are heading out of town for family stuff – is there a chance you could bake a batch of cookies or bars ahead of time for the race.  We are going to need all the help with treats that we can get and that would be an easy way to contribute even if you can’t be there to help.  Those that will be in town – we had many of you sign up for jobs on Friday – if you didn’t get a chance to sign up – we’ll have the sheets available on Monday and we’ll be getting you assigned to various jobs.

With so many people pre-registered – we will need extra help with bib pick-up and registration.  We will also need quite a bit of help with timing for all of the runners participating.  And of course there is course marking, manning the water stop, setting up the treat tent for afterward, parking, hot water for cocoa, treats, fruit, diamond city bread, signs made, t-shirts and bibs assigned, … this list goes on.  We’ll be looking for extra help on Wednesday for pre-set up and then Thursday am starting around 6:30 for some folks – registration opens at 7:00am, the race starts at 8:00am and we should be cleaned up by 10:00am if everyone can help.

Thank you in advance for all the help you all give for this – it will be a pretty awesome event!

Practice for this week is a little weird because of the holiday.  Monday and Tuesday will have practice as normal.  Wednesday practice will be an early am core practice at the high school.  Dress for indoor practice on Wednesday – practice will start at 6:00am.  The team usually heads for breakfast after these early morning practices as a way for some good food and team bonding.  Thursday will be the Wattle and family time.  We’ll talk about weekend options this week.  Check the weekly practice page for details.  We’ll see you Monday – dress warm, looks a little chilly for the weather.

One more item: Team Night at Pioneer Midwest!! Right after practice on Monday. They will provide a pizza dinner and a waxing demo along with having extra people on hand if you have questions about anything. Coaches will also be available if you have questions for them.
