II. JV RACE: JANUARY 4, 2019
The first Hyland JV race is scheduled for Friday, January 4th at 4:30PM. MAST is responsible for supplying one gate judge station. It would be great if we could get TWO volunteers to share this duty. Please email DANIEL and MARK if you are willing to help. firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com. You will need to be on the hill for a gate judges meeting at 4PM on Friday. Overdress for warmth—it will likely be cold.
Listed below are the athletes who have submitted their intention TO RACE next Friday in the Hyland JV Race. If you would like to race and your name is not listed, you need to STATE YOUR INTENTIONS NO LATER THAN NOON ON SUNDAY (DEC 30). Daniel and I need to submit a run order for the race Sunday evening. We will not be able to do this later in the week since we will be at Giants Ridge all week. Here is a link to STATE YOUR INTENTIONS.

III. Future Races
We have a fairly busy race schedule coming up. Some races are for Varsity racers only and others are for JV racers only. And some are for both Varsity and JV racers. If you are unsure whether you are Varsity or JV, or are floating between the levels, state your race intentions for all the races. No harm done by doing so. Also, please do not state your intention to race unless you are certain you are able to race. Check with your teachers, parents, neighbors, dog… anyone who has a claim on your time and life. Make sure you are really available before stating that you are available.
Some notes on the races:
IV. Giants Ridge Parent Lift Tickets and Race Workers
Giants Ridge is offering a group rate of $33/day for an adult lift ticket if purchased through MAST. If you are planning on joining us on the iron range during any or all of the four days of camp, you can order lift tickets ahead of time. Here is a link to order tickets:
Giants Ridge Lift Ticket Order Form.
On Thursday, our athletes are racing in the Hibbing Invitational. We need to provide some gate judges. If you are attending the race and are willing to gate judge, MAST will buy your lift ticket that day. Please email MARK at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be willing to gate judge on Thursday at Giants Ridge. You will need to attend a gate judges meeting at 9AM in the timing building.
V. Great Harvest Baker of the Day Fundraiser
Our BIG Fundraiser is just around the corner. Please get cracking on selling the wonderful products from Great Harvest. It is the PRE SALE ORDERS that YOU collect that makes this a great fundraiser. Here is a link to information about the fundraiser, forms, and the volunteer sign up: January 13, 2019 Great Harvest Fundraiser.
VI. Ski Area Release of Liability Waivers: Giants Ridge and Welch Village
If you are attending the Giants Ridge Camp, please remember to complete the attached waiver and turn it into MARK at practice or give it to MARK at the bus on Monday morning. Do not forget or you won’t be skiing.
Also, if you plan to race or train at Welch in January, you need to have a parent complete and sign TWO on line waivers for Welch Village. Please get this done as well.
