Next week is finals week. Your first priority is to study hard and finish the semester with top grades.
For this reason, I did not schedule any races next week while school is in session. On the calendar, you may have seen a race scheduled for Afton next Thursday when you are out of school. The AFTON race is cancelled. That is the bad news. Here is the good news.
MAST has been invited to send athletes to the Cloquet Invitational at Spirit Mtn on Thursday, January 25. YOU ARE NOT IN SCHOOL. We cannot take the entire team, but we can send varsity squads of boys and girls from Southwest and Washburn and MAST and possibly a small contingent of racers to race as JV entries. I do not have all the details about the day, but I do know it will be an early start (6AM bus departure from Washburn) and a late afternoon return (not sure exactly when). You will need to bring money to purchase meals for yourself on the way up and back. MAST will not be providing any meals.
If there is enough interest and if I can secure a coach bus for transportation, we may take a few extra skiers to enter as JV racers.
Parents: let me know if you would be interested in attending. I know that the Cloquet coach is looking for race workers. A free lift ticket is your reward. Please email me if you can join us. Please consider helping. We can help make it a great race. We also need parent chaperones.
So…. I need ALL MAST athletes to State Your Race Intentions for Thursday, January 25th here: https://www.mplsalpineski.org/cloquet-invitational-race.html
Do this TODAY PLEASE!!!
There will be practice at Hyland next week. Evenings Monday-Wednesday. Mornings Thursday-Saturday. There is also a Hyland JV race on Friday, January 26 for those who do not race at Spirit.
Finally, we are CANCELLING Welch Supplemental Training on Saturday, January 27. If you already registered, you will be issued an account credit.
There is still room to attend the Supplemental Training session at Wild Mt THIS Saturday, January 20. Sign up here: http://minneapolisalpineskiteam.siplay.com/site/
