MAST Update Week 1: Season Pass Pick Up Night, Fundraising Orders Due, Sprongo, Dryland Training Begins, Waivers, Team Roster
Sunday, November 14, 2021
Dear MAST Athletes, Coaches and Parents:
Finally, we begin. Hyland is making snow. Temps are getting colder. And we start training together this week. But first....
Season Pass Pick Up: Monday, November 15 from 6-7PM.
All MAST athletes should come pick up your Hyland Season Pass between 6 and 7PM tomorrow. You do not need to arrive promptly at 6. Just be sure to be there before... 6:45...
A bit more about the evening.
We will be taking care of many administrative details tomorrow night. Attached is a SEASON PASS NIGHT CHECKLIST. Print the checklist and bring it with you. We will have copies as well in case you forget it. The point of the checklist is to guide you through the many stations we will have set up. By moving through the stations, we will be able to check off a lot of administrative tasks in one quick hour. And this won’t even take up an hour of your time.
If you are selling coffee and salsa in the MAST Individual Fundraiser, bring your sales order forms and payments. The sale ends tomorrow and all forms need to be submitted tomorrow.
REMEMBER TO BRING:
MN Ski Areas Association Liability Release
All new MAST athletes should have received an invitation to join the Mpls Alpine Ski Team Sprongo site. I sent the invitation to your MPS email account. If you did not receive an invitation, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to give me your correct email address. You will need to create a MAST Sprongo Account User-Name and Password. I suggest using your personal email account as your username rather than your MPS email account. And use a password that you are willing to share with your parents so they can watch your progress through the season and over the years. This will make them happy so no arguing about it.
I also sent invitations to the following returning MAST skiers who do not have a Sprongo account set up. I know you have a lot of video clips from last year sitting as orphans in the many playlists from last season. Unclaimed. Unloved. Unnamed even. Looking to return home. Just like E.T. Show your clips some love. Get yourself set up with a Sprongo account.
Some Other Do’s:
Some Do Nots:
MAST Strength and Conditioning begins Tuesday, Nov 16 at 4:30PM at Washburn Stadium. Please be on time. I know it might be hard for some of our middle school athletes to make it by 4:30 due to a later school release time. Do your best. Remember:
MAST Athlete-Family Roster and Car Pooling
Finally, I am ready to send out a roster of MAST Athletes and Families. However, I am sensitive to sending out a roster to the team with your contact information on it without first giving everyone a chance to OPT OUT of sending this information. The roster will include the following information:
Athlete Name- Gender- Grade- School- Address and Zip
Parent/Guardian Names-Cell Phone-Email.
Parents would have this information for the purpose of forming carpools or seeking advice about the team, or racing, or tuning, or just for reaching out to that really nice parent you met at a race. Please do not use this information for any nefarious reasons.
IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO HAVE ANY OF THE ABOVE LISTED INFORMATION ABOUT YOU OR YOUR FAMILY LISTED IN THE ROSTER, PLEASE EMAIL ME DIRECTLY AT MARKROBERTCONWAY58@GMAIL.COM AND I WILL REMOVE YOUR INFORMATION FROM THE ROSTER. PLEASE EMAIL ME BY WEDNESDAY EVENING. I WOULD LIKE TO SEND OUT THE ROSTER ON THURSDAY SO FAMILIES HAVE TIME TO FORM CARPOOLS BEFORE HYLAND OPENS.
See you tomorrow evening.
