Time Change and Weather Delays… JV Conference Championships and Picture Day!
Feb 072014

What a week and week ahead!

The Section Meet was yesterday, JV/Jr. High Championships are tomorrow, JV Conference Championships will be Monday, the State Coaches Relay is Wednesday and then the State Meet is on Thursday. Wow! Yes – the season sure wraps up with a bang!

A huge congrats to the section’s teams! (All 5 of them!) Ally (our Zimmerman girl’s team!) scored points to represent Zimmerman! Rogers boys and Rogers girls earned points as full teams for the first time ever! Both the boy’s and the girl’s Roger’s teams placed 9th! Elk River boys were 3rd and the girls were 4th with tough competition on both sides! Well done to all the skiers! A special congrats go to Joey Martin, Breck Hickman, Brittney Dorn and Reece Hickman for qualifying for the State Meet which will be next Thursday!

Tomorrow will be the JV/Jr. High Championships in Lakeville. Just a reminder that the bus loads at 7:00am. The school will be open at 6:45am along with the locker rooms and ski room. The first race goes out at 9:00am and then the rest of the races follow after that. The time schedule is linked here. We’ll be stopping at Olive Garden on the way home to celebrate the season so bring some money with for that. We are hoping to be home by 3:30.

On a separate topic – we want to say a huge thank you again to all the parents this past week!. The help you gave with waxing and the support at the meet was huge! We waxed 60 pairs of skis on Wednesday night for the 30 skiers and alternates that we took to sections. That was our biggest group yet at sections and yet we were able to get done in great time. It was amazing to see all of you working so hard in getting our racers skis ready. Thank you for jumping in, thank you for making the time to wax and to learn how to do something new, thanks for being patient when we needed time to find you a job since there were so many of you! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Thank you again to the Hickman’s for hosting and for providing dinner for all the workers – it was fantastic!! Thank you to all the supporters on Thursday who braved the cold weather to cheer on your skiers at the race and for helping with capes, food, clothing, brushing skis, feeding kids, reserving rooms, arranging food, running for bibs, … it truly takes a village! Thank you all!

As things are wrapping up in the coming days, we are fitting a few more things on the schedule – Team Pictures will be on Monday. We’ve been waiting for a warm day and we just haven’t found one so we’ll have to go with Monday. Racers – you’ll have your suit for the race, non-racers, start in your suit so we can do the team picture first and then you can change if you want.

Happy Friday!
