Final Week: Trail Maintenance – A Message from Coach Kallemeyn and the team
Feb 202012

Snow is falling…finally! A little late for us this season though but if there is enough, I’m sure we’ll see each other out skiing. If you haven’t turned in your equipment and uniform, get that in to Coach K immediately! There are some other things going on also so don’t forget…

  • From Mary Elmquist:  “Please turn in your contribution for senior gifts and coaches gifts as soon as possible.  If you have questions contact a captain.  You can turn in your contribution ($5-$10) to Mary, another captain, or through school mail to Coach K (Kirstin Anderson) at the high school in an envelope addressed to ‘Mary Elmquist: Nordic Captain’ and make sure to include your name.”
  • Photos:  If you have any photos or video from the ski season – we’d love to have access to them for the end of season video.  If you can get them on a disk and drop them off to Coach K this week that would be great.  Captains will be putting the video together this year and will be getting started this weekend.
  • Senior Parents: We need a couple things from you.  Coach K will be sending out an e-mail Tuesday or Wednesday of this week detailing those things so look for that.
  • Trail Maintenance:  There is some work that needs to be done at Woodland Trails and the hands that do the work…yep – those are our hands!  We’ve got some time to put in on the trails if you are available.  Wednesday – 3:00pm – 5:00pm, dress in work clothes (not workout clothes), bring work gloves, tools will be provided.  We weren’t able to put much time in skiing on the trails but time we put in now will allow us to have an even better experience in the future.  (Also – this would give you one of the first chances to see the new trail system)  How much has changed, you ask?  Umm, well, in short – you won’t recognize it at first, come put in some hours to help, and get a sneak peek of what is to come next season!  Meet at the parking lot and we’ll diverge from there!
  • Banquet:  We are still waiting to hear from Community Ed. about our banquet date.  Yes, still.  But, once that is finalized we’ll pass it along immediately.  Captain Laura Crepeau is organizing skiers for food to bring.  For all of you new families – our banquet is family style pot luck, usually in the high school cafeteria.  We try to keep expenses to a minimum but still have a classy, nice event so we dress up and eat with silverware and use napkins…yep, silverware and even napkins!  All kidding aside, it is are really nice night to celebrate the skiers and all the hard work, time, and effort they have put in during the season.  Everyone is invited (parents, siblings, others).  Once we know the date and we get you the final info, we’d love an idea of how many people you are bringing, we’ll have you do a quick RSVP.  Thank you!
  • Thank you for an absolutely-fantastic season!!
