So, we are still waiting to hear the final decision by Three Rivers Parks on whether or not we are able to race on Friday or not. Once we find out, I will send out the details.
But, the good news is that we are going to do a race in Winona at St. Mary's University on Saturday!! The bus is leaving at 7:00am with the first race at 10:30. Originally we were hoping to do a classic race, but we will be doing a skate race, with the Varsity skiers doing a 2 person sprint relay, with each doing a 1K 3 times. The boys will be first with the girls to follow at 11:30. The JV and 1st years will do a multiple wave mass start 2 lap course that will be about 2.5K, with the girls starting around 12:30 and the boys at 1:10. The last wave of boys will go out around 1:30.
We suggest that the skiers bring a lunch or money to buy food at the University Book Store on campus. We will probably also do a bit of a pole hike after the races to do a little extra hill work but also check out the bluffs on campus. The hope is to leave around 3:00 so we are back by 5:30ish for those that are in the Holiday Concerts that evening.
