This week Wax Room
Jan 222015

We have a JV race that just popped into existence on Jan 9th – Maple Grove is hosting and there are quite a few teams responding attendance (we had the space reserved as a backup). Practice will continue into February.  The additional JV race is at Elm Creek on Feb 9th.  Girls at 4:00pm and boys at 4:30pm. We will not have to leave school early! :)

JV Conference will be held on Monday Jan 26th at Theodore Wirth. The date and time is the same but this is a change in location!  Skiers will choose to either ski the 5k classic or the 5k skate.  The bus will leave from Elk River High school at 1:15pm.  The wax room will be open around 1pm.  All conference skiers are required to attend as practice.


  • 3:30pm Boys skate
  • 3:35pm Girls classic
  • 4:05pm Boys classic
  • 4:20pm Girls skate

All of the skiers who are not racing at Conference will race at JV conference.  Alternates will race JV conference but will be let out of school on Wednesday to attend conference (being ready in case they are able to ski).

For those attending Varsity Conference, we will be having a parent waxing night.  Parents we NEED YOUR HELP! We need volunteers to help wax the conference skis for their athletes.  Skiers will go to a pasta dinner at the Hohlen house and adults will meet at the Hickman household at 3:30pm on Tuesday Jan 27th to wax skis. This should last until after dinner – the Hickmans will provide dinner for the volunteers.  It is important to have helpers early in the night but if you can’t come until after work that is fine too.  Do not worry if you have little or no knowledge about waxing, that’s why the coaches are there too – we will show/teach you!  Waxing is a very important component of skiing and this is one way you can help them out with their season.  Even if your athlete is not skiing conference, this is an excellent opportunity to come and learn how to wax!

We will have another waxing night on Wenesday Feb 4th for the Varsity Sections skiers.  I will add details later.  The Hickmans have offered to host this night as well, thank you from all of us!
