Attached is the race plan and run orders for tomorrow's race. Varsity and JV skiers will again be racing together. The first run starts at 4:30pm. Inspection opens at 3:45. We will race in our Pods again. First and second run order is the same. We have a full slate of race workers. Thank you MAST parents. JV parents: if you cannot make the earlier race time, just let me know via email. I certainly understand since we were originally holding the JV race later in the day.
Athletes, you need to TUNE YOUR SKIS TONIGHT. Tuning skis is more important than getting in one more training session. I have seen too many of you sliding your turns this week due to DULL edges. A fresh layer of wax would also be good for your skis and help them run more cleanly. So.... If you can't practice AND get your skis tuned AND do your homework AND put your head on the pillow at your normal bedtime AND give your parents a hug and kiss for all the support they have given you this season, then stay home to make sure you have time to get the last four things checked off your list.
Team photos: I always forget to organize a date for a team photo. BUT NOT THIS YEAR. I got it organized. I just forgot to announce it. Hey everyone, we are taking photos tomorrow. The first priority is to take photos of each training POD. We will also take school (team) photos by gender, with the exception of the MAST skiers who will take one group photo. And finally, we will take photos of the Section Championship teams. I ask for your cooperation tomorrow. Coaches will direct you when it is your time to have your picture snapped. You will stay masked and you will maintain some measure of social distancing for the photoshoot.
Speaking of Sections... Daniel will be announcing the Section IV Championship teams at practice today. I will send out a team announcement after practice tonight announcing those teams as well as all other details about the Section Champs at Wild Mt next Wednesday. Also, there will be a meeting for all section athletes and alternates at 5PM on Monday at Hyland. Please plan on attending, once you know who your are.
You get to hear from me twice today. Isn't it a great day!
