Mesabi Invite

Here is the roster for this upcoming weekends Mesabi Invite at Giants Ridge as well as the basic info.  We will have a few openings for a few extra skiers to come along and watch and help out as well. We would like to have those decisions made by Wednesday.
Any questions, please let me know,

Mesabi East Invitational
Sat. Jan 5, 2019

The Mesabi East Invitational is upon us again and it is time for our skiers to participate in the largest high school ski meet in the country.  We will be leaving at 12:00pm on Friday, Jan. 4 from in front of the school.   We will be going to Pine Valley Trails in Cloquet to get in some skiing, then heading to Camp Chicagami.

We have for a number of years stayed at Camp Chicagami (218 744-4683 if you need to get a hold of us), south of Eveleth, which is bunk style sleeping.  So, besides the usual overnight items that we all bring, toiletries and clothes, the skiers will need to bring up a sleeping bag, pillow, and towel for showering.  One suggestion that we do make though, is that the amount of food brought with is limited.  We will have dinner and breakfast at Camp Chicagmi and the Booster Club has purchased lunch for Saturday for the skiers.  The cost for the night of stay and two meals is $35 and needs to be paid before we leave. 

Here is the time schedule for Saturday:
11:00 5K Classic Varsity/Boys & Girls 
11:37 5K Classic JV/Boys & Girls 
1:00 5K Freestyle Varsity/Boys & Girls 
1:37 5K Freestyle JV/Boys & Girls

On the trip home, (we hope to leave from Giants Ridge around 4:30pm) we will make a brief stop in Forest Lake to make phone calls to let you know when we will be back. 

How we will do the Mesabi Invite this year, is that the top 10 boys and the top 10 girls will all race in a Varsity or JV race, either Classic style or Freestyle.  The rest of the team will not be racing, but are invited to come along to help out at the meet, to learn about waxing, for cheering, and to get an opportunity to ski on some World Class trails and continue to improve.  But, we are limited to a total number of 40 people, including coaches, bus driver (Snes) and our manager. We will need to know as soon as possible if your child is able to or unable to attend.  This is not a mandatory event for those that are not racing.

Also, once the start lists are posted, I will be sending out the start list so you are able to know when your child will be skiing if they are racing. The first race is at 10:00 and the clock will continue running until the last skier has finished.  The last skier of the day to start is usually around 3:30, just to let you know how spread out the day is.  The start list will also help you better plan your day if you are going to be attending.
