We are just over a day away from camp and was wanting to remind everyone that the temps are going to be on the cold side in the Hayward area and everyone that is going needs to bring extra layers, gloves/mittens, hats, socks, and gators/buffs, as well a jacket to put on after practices as we travel back to the hotel or back to Coon Rapids. One of the biggest things to remember is that when it is colder like it will be, it's important to keep moving, and if you are still not staying warm to get to a place where you can warm up, which there will be places to do. To go with this, for those that ordered the team jackets, they are to be delivered tomorrow so we will have them on Thursday when we leave. If you have ordered one and have not paid yet, please either bring payment or set up a plan with me for making payments.
As for the weather itself, the high temps on Saturday are to be around -4 F, with lows being in the negative teens Friday into Saturday. We will be paying attention to this possibility of weather and will make any necessary changes, including starting later, reducing the amount of time outside/practice, to even the chance of just heading home early, which we have had to do in the past. If there are any changes, we will let everyone know and have the skiers there making contact with their parents as well to make sure everyone is aware of what we are planning to do.
Let me know if there are any questions. I'll be on my way back home tomorrow, getting back into the Twin Cities around 4:30pm, so if anything comes up, we will have time.
Last reminder, the bus leaves at 7:00am on Thursday, but we want everyone at the school at 6:30am. Everyone will need to check in with me at the ski room so they can see what they are in charge of for the teams equipment. We will have plenty of things to do, so no one will be able to just sit on the bus as the trailer is being filled and items are being brought up.
Thanks and see you all soon!
