Good Noon Day MAST Athletes, Parents, Coaches:
Attached are TWO very important spreadsheets. PLEASE take five minutes to review each. I am trying to avoid any last minute hiccups on Friday. I want to make sure my information is accurate. You can help.
Afton Invite Spreadsheet
Open the first tab and confirm you are listed and that the information is accurate, except for the waiver column. THE WAIVER COLUMN IS NOT ACCURATE BECAUSE I CANNOT ACCESS THE WAIVERS AND AFTON HAS NOT TOLD ME WHO HAS OR HAS NOT COMPLETED A WAIVER. If there is a Y in the waiver column next to your name it only means that you attended our first race at Afton back on Jan 5 and that I am assuming you completed the waiver then. If you did, you do not need to sign it a second time. Here is link to complete the AFTON VAIL WAIVER. NOTE: Athletes must be over 19 years of age to complete the waiver without a parent or guardian. So, that means all waivers need to be completed by a parent.
Also, I have tried to input two additional pieces of information for Friday.
1. Who needs MAST to purchase a ticket and who will be using an EPIC pass to secure a lift ticket. Please make sure my information is correct. If you have an EPIC pass, please use it to secure an actual lift ticket. I don't think you can just ski onto the lift with your EPIC pass without activating a ticket... but I could be wrong. Also, if you have an EPIC pass, don't take a lift ticket from a coach.
2. Who is riding to/from Afton with a parent. Please make sure my information is correct. Some of you are taking the bus TO Afton but riding home with a parent. If you are doing this, please let me know this as well:
If there are any inaccuracies listed in the Logistics tab, please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The second tab lists the athletes and teams entered in the Invite. We have two alternates for the boys (Braeden and Freddy) and no alternates for the girls. If there is a girl out there who would suddenly like to attend the Afton Invite as an alternate, please let me know. Happy to bring you.
End Of Season Race Intentions and Supplemental Training Sign Ups
The second spreadsheet lists everyone who has stated their race intentions for the FEB 3 RACE AT WELCH AND THE FEB 11 RACE AT HYLAND. Plus, I have listed everyone who has registered to date for our last two supplemental training sessions at Wild Mt Jan 29 and Feb 5.
If you need to STATE YOUR RACE INTENTIONS, DO SO HERE.
If you want to sign up yet for supplemental training, DO SO HERE.
WE ARE ON LANES B AND C ALL NIGHT TONIGHT.
I am really proud of our team. Last night was so cold that over half the teams that train at Hyland canceled practice, including Gilboa. Not MAST. Our 7th and 8th graders were taking countless runs last night until 8:30 on lanes 6 and 7 using the rope tow. Lucy H, Chloe, Josie and several others were skiing without a JACKET, claiming they were plenty warm. Everyone got plenty of training runs in, making nice improvements. Seeing you working so hard in temps that make most teams quit fills me with gratitude for the awesome athletes we have on MAST. And I have to say thank you to the coaches who come out in the cold to give you the best training around. They are not staying warm by using the rope tow, I can promise you that.
Because we are on the chair tonight, PLEASE WEAR A JACKET WITH PLENTY OF LAYERS UNDERNEATH.
See you soon.
