Important Practice Changes and Race Schedule
This week will be a little different. Due to some other ASD events our buses on Tuesday and Wednesday were canceled and we have a bus to Kincaid on Monday.
Monday we will skate ski at Kincaid.
Tuesday we will take a team photo at West. Please wear West team gear. For those who can drive to Kincaid we will meet out there after the team photo. Other option is a ski from West. Coaches will be at both locations
Wednesday will be another either ski from West or drive to Kincaid. Coaches will be at both locations.
Thursday will be our waxing day in preparation for Regions.
Friday skiers will be excused from school (time TBD) for Regions races
Saturday races are starting at 12:30 instead of 11 to accommodate ACT testing

Race Volunteers Needed
Volunteers are needed to bring snacks and fill drink containers for Friday and Saturday's races!! (have you seen the weather forecast? Not a bad time to volunteer at a race!)
