Congratulations MAST athletes, parents, friends and THANK YOU!!!
THANK YOU GAIL AND STEVE ARNOLD and the Great Harvest Bread Conpany for choosing MAST as your Baker of the Day partner in 2017. Thank you Christine Smalley and Kelly Bent for co-chairing this great fundraiser. Christine and Kelly are working on a summary letter with more detail, but all the reports I have received indicate that yesterday was a huge success. Thank you to all who made it so.
We have another busy week.
Our Week Nine schedule is updated on our website and appears at the end of this update. Please note that Tuesday’s practice runs from 4:30-7PM and the practice on Thursday is CANCELED to allow everyone time to tune skis before the Welch Invite on Friday. And to get to bed very early that evening. And to do homework.
Chipotle Fundraiser: Tuesday, January 10th
6801 York Ave. South
Parents: Do Not Cook Dinner Tuesday Night. Come to the Edina Chipotle as a family and support the last MAST fundraiser of the year. Practice runs from 4:30-7PM on Tuesday. This gives everyone time to get to Chipotle after practice. Be sure to bring the attached flyer and present it with your order. This is how Chipotle tracks the sales that are counted toward our fundraiser. MAST receives 50% from each sale. Please DO NOT distribute flyers to customers in the parking lot or in the store. Please send and give the flyers to everyone you know.
The Welch Invite is Friday. We have two buses chartered. Meet the buses at Washburn NO LATER THAN 6:30AM. We will depart as soon as we are loaded. We will not wait for you if you are late.
Attached is the schedule for the day and a list of the teams and athletes we have entered in the race. If you thought you were racing and your name is not listed, CALL me. If your name is listed and you are not racing, CALL me. If your name is listed and you want to race, email me and I will put you on a wait list. At this point I cannot add anymore racers.
Parents: I need parents to send me an email IF….
- A. you will be attending the race and driving your athlete home afterwards, and
- B. if you would be willing to serve as a race worker in some capacity (gate judge, course maintenance, scoreboard recorder).
Lunch: a wonderful group of parents is working on a lunch plan. I know they will be sending out an email requesting that people sign up to bring a food/beverage item to share. They will also need help setting up, serving and cleaning up afterwards. Look for food/beverage sign up.
Race Vs Hastings on January 17
Our second race at Welch is scheduled for Tuesday, January 17. The first run will start at 5PM. We are racing Hastings… one of our biggest competitors at the Section IV Championships. This will be a great test for our boys and girls. But you need to sign up if you want to race…Please SIGN UP FOR THE RACE VS HASTINGS NO LATER THAN SUNDAY AT 6PM. I will formulate the run order Sunday evening and sending it onto the Hastings coach that night. So please ACCEPT or DECLINE this invitation to race on January 17.
