Sorry if anyone has been trying to get ahold of me this morning, but my phone died and is not charging.  But we are going to still have practice.  Please drive safe and if it is something you don't feel comfortable with, than don't feel like you have to be there.

Voting Update

Due to the fact that two of the leadership spots were so close (3-way tie for one of them) and that we did not get votes from most of the first years, we will be holding off until the end of practice on Monday to let the skiers know the leaders for this year. So, first years, let’s get and rock the vote!! 😁

Thursday and Friday Practices

We have made some changes for practice for the next two days, in which we discussed with the skiers.

For Thursday, we are going to have everyone meet after school as normal, but for those that have their own skis, we are going to have them head to Elm Creek at some point to get on snow. Our permits have been ordered but are not in yet, so they will have to pay for a pass.  For everyone else, we will be going in-depth with their technique for each skate and classics since the snow we received today eliminated a chance to be on wheels.  We will also be handing out skis after practice so we know if we need to pick any up at the ski swap on Saturday (more details on this tomorrow.)

For Friday, due to the early release from school for the football game and the number of team members heading to the game, we will not have practice. For those that want a workout for the day, we will give them ideas.

If there are any questions, please let me know.
