First week reminders Trip to Giants Ridge Update
Nov 172017

Hello athletes and parents,

Practice has been going well so far, we have lots of good and motivated new skiers. Hopefully we get some snow before long!

The Wild Turkey Wattle, our biggest fundraiser is coming up. It is a 5k run/walk Thanksgiving morning at Otsego Park. The race starts at 8am and clean up will be done around 10am so you have time to get to Thanksgiving dinner with your family. If you are in town, your athletes are expected to help out. We got 400+ people last year, which is great, but we need all the kids helping with set up, clean up, registration, etc… to make it a success. If you have not yet signed up, or are a parent looking to help, let me know, or sign up at practice. Also, everyone needs to bring a treat, (cookies, muffins, bread, etc..) for the runners after. If you will be out of town, drop off your treat with a friend or at practice with the coaches so we can bring it.

Practice next week will be like a regular week even though there isn’t school. Be there dressed and ready to go at 2:45 at ER High School, Monday, Tuesday, and Wedsnsday. Thursday is the Wild Turkey Wattle, Friday will be 2:45 at Elk River High School, and Saturday, 8am at Elk River High School. If you will be out of town at all, let us know.

We are moving the Thanksgiving Trip up to Giants Ridge to the following weekend due to snow conditions. We have room for maybe 12-14 kids based on years of experience first.

This weekends practice has been posted under the practice schedule tab, but I’ve been getting questions. We will do core at 8am at ER High School, in the weight room, followed by driving to Elm Creek to do a long rollerski. Everyone who can come is welcome. If you aren’t sure if you can handle the volume of a long rollerski, talk to one of the coaches at practice. We encourage everyone to be at the core if possible.
