Good Evening MAST Athletes, Parents, Coaches and Friends:
On Monday, May 8th, we have an opportunity to raise $3000 for MAST. Yup, shoveling you-know-what out of the horse barn stalls. Last year, this took about three hours to complete with 40 of you working. This year we would like to get 50 to 60 of you to sign up to lighten the burden a bit. We have not yet committed to take on this sensory overloading experience, but will need to say 'Yes' or 'No' on Monday morning. We need to have a commitment from 40 people to say YES. This gives us three days to see if we have enough willing shovelers in our group to accept the challenge.
Now you may ask yourself, "how will we use this money?" I have a good answer. We need to buy a new Brower Timing System if we want to continue to hold races at Hyland next year and into the future. A couple of weeks ago I was informed by Hyland's management that the ski area will no longer provide timing services for races. The timing building will still be available for teams to hold races, but teams will need to provide their own timing equipment and timing personnel. We have two systems, but one is over twelve years old and is unreliable. The other one is much newer and is very reliable. So we need to buy a second "newer" one if we want to continue to race other teams at Hyland. Here are the details on the fundraiser.
What? State Fair Horse Barn Cleaning Fundraiser.
When? Monday, May 8, 6PM-9PM (based on last year's experience).
