2017-2018 Season Pricing, Jackets and Suits

posted Aug 10, 2017, 7:16 PM by LV RC

To All,

Registration:
LVRC has new pricing and registration form for the up and coming season. Remember, this year we have modified our pricing structure with the hopes to simplify the process and save you money. We are accepting registrations and payments now. You are more than welcome to make incremental payments starting now, if that makes it easier for you as well. We just ask that it be paid in full prior to the start of the regular season. 
Also, Lost Valley has generously offered to extend the now closed pre-season pricing to LVRC members, if you buy before Labor Day, 9/4/17. This is $199 for ages 12 and under, and $299 for ages 13 and up. To get this price the pass needs to be paid in full at the time of purchase. You can also opt to use the current lay-a-way offer which is $299 12 and under, $399 13 and up. Half down and pay off the balance by 10/15/17. So if you want a pass, please reach out to them. You will need to verify LVRC membership prior to Pass Pick up.

LVRC Jackets:
This, year we are offering the LVRC jackets again. It will be pay up front and we'll need a minimum of 12 jackets to place an order. Last year's prices ranged from $79 to $210, depending on the model selected. If you are interested in signing up for a jacket this Year, let us know so we can get an initial head count. See attached Picture of the jacket. We will send out an email later on with more details on the jackets. LVRC does not make a profit on the jackets, they are available to you at cost.


LVRC Race Suits (New):
Additionally, we would like to offer up, again at cost, a race suit for your racers. Below is the rough pricing for the Suits. We have not ironed a design yet or lined up any sponsors so we are unsure what it will look like at this time. We need a minimum of 5 suits to make this happen, let us know if you are interested and we can get an initial head count.

Padded, non-FIS, Youth $279.00 ea.
Padded, non-FIS, Adult $319.00 ea.
Non-padded, non-FIS, Youth $249.00 ea.
Non-padded, non-FIS, Adult $289.00 ea.

LVRC pricing for next season (2017-2018)

posted Jul 6, 2017, 6:24 PM by LV RC

Hello LVRC Members,

 

We are writing today to inform you of some new developments with LVRC pricing for next season (2017-2018). We felt it necessary to inform everyone in advance so that you can budget accordingly and take advantage of an awesome opportunity.  It is the Board's and the Coach's goal to constantly improve the experience and training opportunities for our racers at the best possible value to the parent.  

 

To achieve that goal, we have decided to modify our pricing structure.  Next season, LVRC will no longer incorporate lift tickets into its coaching fees.  Access to the mountain will be responsibility of the racer.  The racer will either purchase a Season’s pass or buy a ticket for each night of training.  Lost Valley has generously offered to extend the now closed pre-season pricing to LVRC members, if you buy before Labor Day, 9/4/17. This is $199 for ages 12 and under, and $299 for ages 13 and up. To get this price the pass needs to be paid in full at the time of purchase. You can also opt to use the current lay-a-way offer which is $299 12 and under, $399 13 and up. Half down and pay off the balance by 10/15/17.  The third option is to buy tickets each night, last Year’s rates were $25 for a ticket.  If you multiply this by the number of training nights, it makes sense to buy the pass. Plus, the benefit of the pass is your kid can ski any time at Lost Valley. More, skiing, better racer.

 

Why are we doing this?

Over the years LVRC has operated under the same training relationship with Lost Valley as other race clubs and teams (AMS, ELHS, Bates, Jimmy Myrick, etc.). That is, each training night the club pays Lost Valley a fixed price to set gates on the hill (lane fee) and lift ticket for each racer regardless if the racer already has a season pass. This works well for other clubs because most of their members do not have season passes.  Most LVRC members do have season passes, so there was not any added value to the racer and it will remove the duplication in payment.  Additionally, this will give the club and coaches greater flexibility in setting the schedule, adding additional sessions and reduce the amount of effort required by the volunteer staff. 

 

This savings will be passed on the racer by a reduction in the LVRC membership fee. We cannot say, at this time, what that the reduction will be; however, the membership fee will only be what is needed to pay our coaches, nightly lane fees and operational requirements of the club.  Additionally, Coach Lobozzo and Coach Eretzian have been with the club for two full seasons now and have been doing an excellent job. The coaches have presented a new training program that they and the Board feel will help take our club and training offered to our racers to a new level. This new program will provide more training days as well as the opportunity to have more "big mountain" training. We are currently working on the details and the pricing for this new program. The club does plan to continue the same "traditional" training program as we had this year. More details on the specifics and exact pricing we follow as soon as we have it all worked out.  Everyone is more than welcome to Join us for our next Board meeting, 6/6/17, where we will discuss these plans.  

 

I hope this all makes sense. Please do not hesitate to reply with any questions. Thanks, and think snow!

Final LVRC Board Meeting, Tuesday 4/11/17

posted Apr 5, 2017, 3:45 PM by LV RC

To All,

We need to hold one more Board meeting to close out this season and schedule the start of the the next.   It would be awesome to get everyone's feedback on the season we just had; therefore, you are all invited to attend!  We are an group-centric organization and we need to know what everyone thinks, positive and negative. Evolution of any organization is acceptance of the failures and fostering its successes, so we want your input.  I have invited the coaches to this meeting so we can gather some feedback from their perspective as well.

The meeting is scheduled for 6 PM, April 11th at Lost Valley.  Please save the date and join us for this event.  

Don't let your kids slow you down, bring them along.  The meeting location can support a pack of kids doing what they do best. 

Hint: LV is closed and everything is shut down.  That means you won't be able to get cola or anything else.  If you want a beverage/s while we meet, please bee prepared to bring your own.

March Events

posted Mar 6, 2017, 5:43 PM by LV RC

To All,


Below are some save the dates for up and coming LVRC events.  We hope that you all can join us to celebrate the our successful year!

15 March, LVRC Race Night!
Jodd bowels has graciously agreed to help us set up timing for our racers.  That means we will be able to have our racers run the gates with no pressure to place but they get to see their times.  If we can make it happen, we will set 2 courses so the kids can go head to head.   It should be a fun event where all can race each other and showcase how far they have come. Maybe they have grudge matches to settle or they just want to race their friends.  In effort to make this happen for the kids, we need help setting up the timing and the corral if needed.There will be a group showing up at 4:30 PM to get everything ready.  We need volunteers, if you can swing it, we would appreciate the help.  If you can't make 4:30, don't let that stop you from showing up since we will need help taking the course down as well.  

20 March, LVRC Banquet
This will be our final LVRC night.  If the trails are still open, LVRC will meet as usual at 5:30 PM and ski for an hour.  After that hour, everyone will convene in the lodge for an awards banquet for food and fun.  This event will bring closure to the awesome year we've had and give us a chance to recognize everyone's achievements and efforts.If Lost Valley is not open, we will start the Banquet at 5:30 PM and with the extra time we will roast the the coaches.

Magno Packard Memorial Race

posted Feb 28, 2017, 6:39 PM by LV RC   [ updated Feb 28, 2017, 6:42 PM ]

Tom Magno was captain of the state championship 1967 Edward Little Ski Team at a time when combined scoring in four events – downhill, slalom, cross country and jumping – determined the winning team. He won the state Nordic combined and jumping championships which earned him a place on the US Junior National team. Unfortunately, financial considerations ended his pursuit of the sport after high school. Tom passed away January 15, 1995 at the age of 47.

Bob Packard was a 1980 graduate of Lewiston High School. He was a member of the Auburn Ski Association and the consummate volunteer, always available to help with the course or in anyway needed to hold a successful event for the ‘kids.’ Without the dedication of volunteers like Bob, a generation of new racers would not have the opportunity to experience the joy of racing and the friendships formed in the skiing community. Bob passed away June 10, 2015 at the age of 53.

Categories for the race are in both Alpine and Snowboard for ages from 3 to 73! Register the morning of the event from 8:00 - 9:30 am. A Small entry fee includes a lift ticket. Race begins by 10:00 am. Gold, silver and bronze medals are given in each category, as well as special awards/prizes in ‘fun’ categories. This event is known for an emphasis on family participation. The kids love racing with Dad, Mom, Grandma and Granddad! One of the highlights of this race is the 'shootout', when the top finishers in chosen categories go head to head in dual pro-format, racing with differential timing in order to determine the King (or Queen) of Lost valley. Come join the Fun!!!
