Good Afternoon MAST Athletes, Coaches and Parents:
Big race tomorrow at Afton AND training at Hyland.
I. We will only hold one practice session tomorrow (Wednesday).
Please train at 5PM if you are not racing at Afton.
II. A few more details and reminders regarding the Afton race.
A. There are several changes to the run orders for Wednesday. Attached is an updated list of the athletes/teams. Please let me know if I have errored in any way. We have a few skiers out sick, so I moved a few people around and added others. It is entirely possible (but highly unlikely?) that I made a mistake and left someone off the list who had previously been on it.
B. I do not have a way of tracking who has completed the Afton/Vail Waiver, so please be sure you do this. Here is a link if you still need to complete the waiver:Afton/Vail Waiver Link
C. Most of you have paid for your Afton lift ticket. Thank you. If you still need to pay, here is a link: Afton Metro East Race Lift Ticket
D. I need to know if you are not riding the bus tomorrow. Here who I know is riding with a parent so far:
Eva and Mila Voyakin
E. I am guessing there are other athletes riding with parents as well. PLEASE SEND ME AN EMAIL IF YOU ARE RIDING TO AFTON WITH A PARENT. Reminder, no athletes should be driving solo to Afton.
F. f you are riding the bus, you can drop off your skis and boots before school tomorrow. The buses do not have trailers and skis are not allowed on the bus. Joel and I will carry skis and poles.
Joel: will be at Pershing Park from 7:30am-8:15am.
Mark: will have the trailer at 4800 Harriet (across from Fuller Park) from 7:30am-8:30am.
G. Storing your boots and race clothing/gear at Washburn and Southwest.
Washburn: Bring you gear to the storage room by the main gym (012) by water fountain. Go to the Athletic Office and Mr. Giovan Jenkins will open and close the door for you. Ms. Lilly and Mr. Jenkins will be there when you need to retrieve your gear before heading out to the bus.
Southwest: meet Mr. Mark Robinson at the equipment room outside of the west gym between 7:45am and 8:15am. Meet him there again at 2PM to pick up your equipment.
H. Other Instructions.
III. On Thursday, I will announce teams for the Metro East Race at Welch on January 11 and provide a link to purchase a Welch Lift Ticket.
IV. Tonight and Thursday: Meet on South Chair for 5PM and 6:30PM training sessions. Go directly to North Chair for 5PM practice on Wednesday.
