And We’re Off!!! Team Night Tomorrow!
Nov 162011

We fought through the wind today – boy was it out there!  The past two days we’ve had some great work on roller skis.  We’ve been working on technique work (and some balance drills also).  Those roller skis can be a little tricky!  The skiers are looking great though and we’ve seen improvement from just yesterday to today.  Most of the athletes have been wearing hats and gloves but we still have a few out there that are forgetting them.  Remind your kids to make sure they have everything when they head out the door in the morning, including a water bottle!  We have a few more points to highlight below:

  • We still have several skiers that haven’t turned in their forms.  You will not be able to practice unless you have all your forms turned in.  Please take care of that immediately tomorrow morning!
  • Pioneer Midwest is hosting our Team Night on Friday.  They’ll have pizza and the Swix Wax rep on hand along with extra staff and stocks on hand.  Things will get started there around 5:30 with the wax rep starting at 6:00pm.  If you can’t make it until a little later, they’ll still have people on hand and the wax rep should be around for a bit to answer questions.  The store will be open until 8:00pm and you can always show up early.  There is no pressure to purchase anything, they will answer any question you may have and coaches will be on hand to help with anything.
  • The ski swap is on Saturday at Dunwoody College in Minneapolis.  If you plan to go – we suggest arriving early.  Friday would be a great chance to price things out and then have a better idea of what you are looking at on Saturday.  Make sure that you have things fit properly for your skiers size/weight.
  • A former skier is selling a pair of RCS Fischer Skate skis.  The skis are fit for around 100lbs but we can do a final fit on sizing at school if you are interested.  The skis have been well cared for and are fast skis.  He is asking $175 for them.  Talk to Coach K if you are interested.
  • Remember that we have the Thanksgiving Wild Turkey Wattle next Thursday (on Thanksgiving).  We’ll need help with trail marking and set-up, along with timing, arranging treats and having some hot cider and water on hand for the run/walkers.  Coaches will be talking to the team Thursday and Friday this week about who can help with different things.  This is a great fundraiser for the team and the money goes directly back to the athletes and their team expenses with the winter trip or other events.  Registration form are available from coaches or can be available online through the link at right.

Thanks for some great first few days!  We’ll see you tomorrow.
