Mesabi East Invitational
Sat. Jan 6, 2018
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. 5 from in front of the school. We will be going to Pine Valley Trails in Cloquet to get in some skiing, waxing our skis, then spending the rest of the day in Cloquet.
This year we will be staying at the AmericInn Hotel in Cloquet. The usual overnight items that we all bring, toiletries and clothes, is all that is needed. One suggestion that we do make though, is that the amount of food brought with is limited. We will have dinner at Sammy’s in Cloquet, where they are catering pasta’s and salad for us; breakfast will be provided at the hotel for Saturday and the Booster Club has purchased lunch for Saturday for the skiers. The cost for the night of stay and two meals is $40 and needs to be paid before we leave.
We will be limited on the number of skiers we will bring this year due to the fact that we are staying in a hotel. In years past we have been able to bring more of the team with us, but we are limiting to the 10 boys and 10 girls that will be racing. For those that are not going, we ask that they ski on their own both Friday and Saturday.
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.
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. If you have any questions, please contact me, more info will also be out the week we leave.
