The snow fall we received this weekend means we again have a meet scheduled for this Wednesday (1/17). The details follow:
Monday, 1/8: Practice at Elm Creek
Wednesday, 1/10: Classic Race at Hyland
Change for next week's meet: The meet will now be held on Wednesday, 1/10, at Hyland.
Updates for the Thursday, Jan. 4, meet at Theo Wirth--Please read carefully:
Skate race for all skiers: Varsity, JV, and new skiers (developmental race)
The wax room at Cooper will be open beginning at 11:30 am for those who need to wax. Teal is still the wax of the day.
The bus leaves Cooper from the athletic area (normal spot) at 2 pm.
Race schedule is as follows (but subject to change once the meet starts):
3:45 pm - Girls Varsity
~4:00 pm - Boys Varsity
~4:15 pm - Girls JV
~4:30 pm - Boys JV
~4:45 pm - Girls Developmental (new skiers)
~4:50 pm - Boys Developmental (new skiers)
The bus will return to Cooper between 6-6:30 pm.
The specific course at Wirth is still TBD; however, the Varsity and JV races will be approximately 4.75-5K in length, and the developmental race should be shorter: 2-3k.
The current predicted high for Thursday is 2F above zero, but, by the end of the meet, the temp will likely drop to -1F or lower. Please dress warmly and in many layers!
Racing: Varsity wears spandex uniforms; all others race in the Cooper warmups you were issued for this year. If the warmup pants don't fit well, you may race in other black or blue pants, but be sure to race in your Cooper warmup jacket.
Remember that hats may only have one large logo or two small logos.
Given the weather for tomorrow, make sure you have at least the following:
Hat, gloves/mittens, scarf/buff/balaclava, multiple layers of clothes for top and bottom, 2 pairs of socks, dry clothes to change into after your race. Sunglasses are also recommended both to cut the glare as it will likely be sunny tomorrow and to protect your eyes from the cold.
Questions? Schoology message me.
See you tomorrow!
