REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN for the 12th Annual Giants Ridge Camp, January 2-5, 2018. These camps provide athletes with a terrific opportunity to improve, build friendships, and enjoy the beauty of Northern Minnesota. Please know, however, that this is a training camp. We work hard AND have a lot of fun in the process. To learn more about the Giants Ridge Camp and for a link to GR Camp Registration, please click here: Giants Ridge Camp. Please note the registration deadline of December 15th.
We do plan to hold training from 6:30-8:45PM at Hyland from January 2-4th for those athletes who cannot attend the Giants Ridge Camp.
The coaches will start videotaping your training runs on Friday. All new athletes should look for an invitation from Sprongo to become a member of the MAST Sprongo account. Please accept the invitation. BE SURE TO USE YOUR (the athlete's) FIRST AND LAST NAME WHEN REGISTERING. This will allow you, the coaches and your teammates to easily “tag” the video to you. Do not use nicknames to create an account.
MAST Apparel is FOR SALE through the end of the day on December 1, 2017-- just over a week away. The captains have put together another wonderful selection of MAST “stuff” this year…. hats, caps, pajamas, under-layers, pullovers, t-shirts, jackets, warm ups and more. You can see a picture of every item and make your purchase online here: MAST Apparel Sale.

Finally, I want to say GREAT WORK to all the athletes who have been attending dryland. We worked you pretty hard and you met the challenge. Thank you to the coaches as well. It sure was fun to finally get the season started. Tune your skis. Get rested up. Organize your gear. We are skiing bright and early (8:45AM) on Friday.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration.
