This will be our opportunity to recognize our racers for their achievements through out the Year and provide LVRC swagg. LVRC will provide Food and Soda for those in attendance. Additionally for the swagg, I need Jacket sizes for all of the Racers ASAP! Please email LVRaceclub@gmail.com with your Racer's Jacket size size ASAP!


in preparation for the up and coming banquet, we are requesting your help. Every Year we recognize our racer's accomplishments. Every Year we miss something. We would greatly appreciate it if you could reply back to this email with the outstanding accomplishments your racer has achieved. 1st place in the Magno race, 2nd place in the Dew Vertical Challenge, Ski Meister, 9th in HS states, etc...

Earlier I said outstanding, I meant outstanding for your child and not necessarily a high finish.

The Banquet is coming up fast, so please let us know as soon as you can.

24th Annual Magno-Packard Race

Saturday, March 2nd. Registration at 8:00-9:30am, Race 10am...or Register online! http://lostvalleyskiresort.menusinyourtown.com/lost-valley-… http://lostvalleyskiresort.menusinyourtown.com/lost-valley…/

ABOUT THE MAGNO-PACKARD RACE

REGISTER NOW

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. The $25 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 LostValley. Come join the Fun!!!

Register online at http://lostvalleyskiresort.menusinyourtown.com/lost-valley-… http://lostvalleyskiresort.menusinyourtown.com/lost-valley…/ , Walk in registrations day of 8am-9:30, racing starts at 10a

Due to the rain tonight's training has been canceled. We will add one more day after the school break to make up for it.

Thanks and good luck to all this weekend.

LVRC not be meeting at its regular times during vacation next week. We are offering the Ski camp instead. See Below.

February Break Ski Camp:

3- day training at Lost Valley, February 20, 21 and 22. It will be 4 hour sessions, tentatively scheduled for 9am to 1pm. Please let us know ASAP if your racer would like to attend. Deadline for sign up is this Saturday, 2/16. We need a minimum of 7 racers to make it happen. Our expected fee for this camp will be $100 for the 3 days. It is possible to do 2 or 1 day of the camp and the fee would be $36. Those that paid the all inclusive registration, access to the camp is included. Please let us know as soon as you can if you would like to attend!!

The Monday after vacation, 2/25/19, is the last day of the regular season. LVRC will continue to have training sessions, but Lost Valley's March's hours of operations will determine what days. More to come on the schedule after the 25th. After Monday it will be pay as you go for those that didn't purchase the all inclusive or punch passes. We are currently working on the attendance and will let everyone know what they have for a balance on the punch pass.

Again, we will make a post in the near future to fill in the blanks.

From the Snowbowl:

We're very excited to invite you to come race at this year's Seacoast Classic Kombi!

LVRC's Third big mountain trip is Saturday December 15th!

I need to have a list of members joining us at Sunday River on Saturday December 15th. We need a minimum of 15 to attend. Please reply to this email as soon as you can if you are planning to join us. I need to know how many adults and how Racers will be in the group. We will make a determination by Friday Morning, 12/14/2018, whether or not its still on. Also, let us know if you'd be willing to give another racer a ride.

Same deal as always, Family members are invited to join us to take advantage of the reduced ticket rate.

Ticket price for all will be $40; however, those with Sunday River passes, it will be $10 fee for the racer to help cover the Coaches.

We will be meeting at the South Ridge Lodge at 8 AM to mosey on down and get the tickets. Your racers should be suited up and ready to go at 8 AM. The lifts open at 8 AM and we want to be on the fresh snow as soon as we can. I recommend arriving at the Lodge at 7:30 AM to give yourself enough time to get ready and go with the pack to get the tix. We usually change up and stash our stuff on the 2nd floor of South Ridge, so if you are the first to arrive head on up and snag us a table. the location is right across from the Foggy Goggle. If you are running a bit late just try and hook up with us by 8 AM so that we can get your discounted ticket. If you are going to be later than 8, try and call somebody to let us know you are on your way. Please have cash or check with your racer to pay for the ticket. We prefer cash, but will take a check. If you do write a check, make it out to: Lost Valley Racing Club.

Unfortunately, not enough racers have signed up for this Saturday's big mountain trip, 12/8/18; consequently, we have decided to cancel it. For those of you that expressed interest in going, I hope that you get out on your own and ski fast! our next LVRC event will be on Saturday 15 December.

Again, Saturday December 8th’s big mountain trip is cancelled.

LVRC Big Mountain Trip - Suday River 12/1/2018

It that's time of year again, Skiing and Racing! LVRC's first big mountain trip is Saturday December 1st! We hope you can join us!


I need to have a list of members joining us at Sunday River on Saturday December 1st. We need a minimum of 15 to attend. Please reply to this email as soon as you can if you are planning to join us. I need to know how many adults and how Racers will be in your group. We will make a determination by Friday Morning, 11/30/2018, whether or not its still on. Also, let us know if you'd be willing to give another racer a ride.


We have not confirmed the group rates yet, but last Year's cost for the trip is $37 for Racers and $47 for adults. Looks like a standard tick price for that weekend is $63 and the group rate will save you at least $16 a person. For those with Sunday River passes, it will be $10 fee for the racer to help cover the Coaches.


We will be meeting at the Barker Lodge at 8 AM to mosey on down and get the tickets. Your racers should be suited up and ready to go at 8 AM. The lifts open at 8 AM and we want to be on the fresh snow as soon as we can. I recommend arriving at the Lodge at 7:30 AM to give yourself enough time to get ready and go with the pack to get the tix. We usually change up and stash our stuff on the top floor of Barker, so if you are the first to arrive head on up and snag us a table. If you are running a bit late just try and hook up with us by 8 AM so that we can get your discounted ticket. If you are going to be later than 8, you can try and call me, but I can't guarantee I'll get the call. Please have cash or check with your racer to pay for the ticket. We prefer cash, but will take a check. If you do write a check, make it out to: Lost Valley Racing Club.
