As we are approaching the beginning of another ski season, there are a couple things of note with sales as well as with skis.
First, there are Sales happening at some of the major ski shops.  Gear West is having their annual Pig Out Sale that is on Sep 13-16 in which they have 20-70% off store wide.
Pioneer Midwest is having their Fall Sale on Sep 14-16 and they will have 10-75% off everything in the store.
Finn Sisu will be having their Blue Awning Sale and Ski Swap on Sep 21-23 (Blue Awning Sale)

Finally, for those of you that may be needing skis, look to get skis sooner than closer to the start of the season so you are not fighting the crowds when the snow flies.  To go with that, if you are not needing skis, you should still consider bringing your skis in to get them resized, especially your classic skis.  If you are planning to just get your skis checked, definitely do this now (maybe not during the sales), so you are not fighting the crowds when we are even closer to the start of the season.  Both Pioneer Midwest and Gear West will do this for you, just make sure the skis are cleaned of any wax. 

If there are any questions on any of this, please let me or Coach Nelson know.

Booster Club

Attention all Nordic Parents! We are coming to a transition period with our booster club and we need to seriously look at the changes to our board that are going to happen due to graduation.  Currently we have asked the same group of parents to do our President, Secretary, Fund Raiser Lead, and Finance for the last 3 plus years, which is greatly appreciated, but is also something that we were never wanting to make one person do for such a long period of time.  These positions are supposed to be 1-2 year positions, and then someone else/new is to come in.  Two of these positions will for sure need to be filled after this year, with the other two shortly after.  However, the positions become much easier to do when we have the former board member still a part of the booster club and their child on the team so if there are questions it becomes an easier transition.
With this, we really want to encourage more people to be present at the meeting tonight, Monday, 7:00 at the City Center (City Hall).  We can only ask our current members to do so much, and no, you don't have to be an expert on skiing or have any knowledge on the sport.  The booster club is to help with finances for the team, so you don't have to worry if you have ever been on ski's before or not!! lol!

If you have any questions, bring them tonight and we will do what we can to get you involved!
