Good morning Mast parents. As we approach the coming race season, we thought it would be fun to have a casual gathering of Mast parents for drinks and to get to know each other. In the past, we have had pre-season events at a home or other locations. Last year, due to Covid-19, we choose to not do anything. We as a board, have discussed making sure that we are connecting with parents, more often this year. Hopefully we will have some additional parent events to raise money, and get to know each other down the road. I believe there are 44 new athletes this year. That’s a lot of new parents to get to know. This initial event is very casual and is not a fundraiser. Everyone is on their own for drinks and they also have Heggies pizza to order if you like. They have a food truck, but unfortunately, they have yet to hire a chef. A sign of the times it would seem. Wild Mind is located at 6031 Pillsbury Ave, in Minneapolis. It is a brewery and they have a large outdoor area, with a tent. Hopefully they will have some fire pits going. There is also plenty of space inside, if you choose to be inside. The weather looks decent with temps in the high 30’s to low 40’s. The board will try to be wearing Mast gear and I believe we will have name tags. Hopefully, we will have a good showing. We did something similar after the high school soccer season, and people had fun. We look forward to seeing you next Thursday.
