To answer your first question: practice will continue as planned. Equity is the buzz word for MPLS Public Schools. I don't see how excluding junior varsity athletes from practicing or competition advances the expressed goal of equity. I certainly have no intention of doing so. I see absolutely no evidence that COVID is spreading through our team from interactions on the ski hill. MPS may decided to cancel our buses to away races, in which case parents may need to pitch in. As far as I can tell, buses are still on order for our race on Monday at Wild Mt.
We have two races coming up immediately.
Attached is a spreadsheet listing the athletes who will be placed on the run order for our Lake Conference race tomorrow at Hyland and for our Metro East Conference race on Monday. Please look this over carefully.
Even though you attend SW or Washburn, you might find your name on the MAST run order. We cannot bring everyone who wanted to attend either race. If your name is on the run order for either race and you are no longer available to race, please email me immediately.

Once again, I would ask you to help MAST stay within its budget and purchase your lift ticket to Wild Mt for Monday's race. Here is a link:

Race Workers For Friday, Jan 14
Apparently I gave out a bad link to sign up to work the race tomorrow.
We already have one gate judge. We could use three more if possible. We always need course workers. We need bib collectors and bib distributors. Other teams are covering the other positions.

Race Workers For Monday, Jan 17
We need to provide four gate judges on Monday. We could also use some course workers. Please email me directly if you can help.
Also, these Metro East races are a little more loosely organized so please feel free to ask me if we need to fill any positions the day of the race.
Bus Chaperones for Monday
Parents, would anyone be willing to ride the bus to and from Wild on Monday. We need an adult on both buses. Because Monday is a work day for many, we are again short on coaches. Joel and I will be driving our trucks hauling gear.
Email me if you can ride the bus: firstname.lastname@example.org
Tow rope lanes tonight. Wear rope tow gloves.
Reminder: 5PM and 6:30 practices start on South Chair.
