MAST Update #6
Monday, October 17, 2022
Dear MAST Athletes, Parents, Coaches, Friends:
We had a beautiful weather for our annual equipment swap. Thank you to Cyrus Vahhaji for all of your work collecting and posting swap equipment on our website. This effort (which is still ongoing) requires attention to detail and takes a lot of time. Thank you Cyrus. You do us all a great service. Thank you to all the coaches and parents who helped with set up, sales and clean up. And we got to see our new tent in action. It looked beautiful and was very functional.
If you did not find what you need, there is still equipment available on our website: Equipment Swap Inventory. If you brought equipment to the swap and you did not pick it up afterwards, you can do so Wednesday and Thursday this week. Just give me a call and arrange a time. I also have money for those who did not pick up their sales receipts. Team Gilboa will be holding its annual swap at Hyland on Friday, Oct 28 from 4-8PM and Saturday Oct 29 from 10AM-5PM. This might be your last opportunity to find used equipment locally. You can also look for equipment on Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, and Sideline Swap.
Winter Sports Registration With MPS Is Now Open!
Please register online. Note that you will need to click on two separate links. One to register for Alpine with MPS and a second to pay the $75 MPS Activity Fee online and directly to MPS this year. MPS WINTER SPORTS REGISTRATION. If you know you are racing, sign up this week. The high school athletic directors need to CLEAR every athlete for participation. No clearance, no participation. So, if you delay registering with MPS and wait to sign up when everyone else is signing up (AT THE LAST MINUTE), the ADs will be swamped and may not have time to CLEAR your participation before the season starts. And be sure to check on the status of your Physical Clearance Examination Form with your AD. Is it still valid or has it expired?
Registration With MAST --Closing Soon!
And if you are a returning MAST athlete and have not yet registered with MAST, please do so this week if possible. Registration will close for EVERYONE on November 1. The coaches and I need to know our roster numbers before we can put the finishing touches on our training and racing schedule before our season opens on November 14th. Here is a link to complete the registration process with MAST: MAST Registration.
