MESSAGE FROM COACH ANSON
Great job at Regions and all season!! I'm proud to coach all of you!
State races are this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. On Tuesday and Wednesday after school there will be a bus from West to Kincaid for those who would like to join us for a ski. The coaches will be working with the State group, but everyone is more than welcome to come out and enjoy the wonderful trails and have a fun ski with your teammates. (This is completely optional for those not competing at State).
The following skiers will be representing West at State. Come out and cheer them on!
(Races are at noon Thurs & Fri, 11 AM Saturday)
Alejandra Legate, Aubrey LeClair, Elizabeth Mans, Ivy Eski, Maggie York, & Molly Gellert. Alternates: Ellie Mitchell & Gretta Pickett
Everett Cason, Luke Jager, Noah Ravens, Ryan Bickford, Sam York, & Tristan Wiese. Alternates: Kelly Martin & Brian Britt
Uniform and Ski Gear Return
Thanks to everyone that returned their uniforms and gear last Saturday. The next (and FINAL) return date is Tuesday, March 21st (after Spring Break) at 2 PM in the West ski room. Uniforms must be returned WASHED (please line dry them!). This day will also be the last day to remove all personal gear from the ski room.
If there is a special case for a skier to keep their gear after March 21st, the skier will need to give Coach Anson a written note advising what they are holding onto and when it will be returned. Fines slips will be going out for any uniforms and loaner skis not returned by March 21st without a written note. Last year, we were chasing skiers to return gear until late April – this is an unproductive use of volunteer hours.
Please note that we will not be accepting any uniform or ski returns at the end of season dinner on Tuesday the 28th, since this year’s dinner is at the Kincaid Chalet.
Tour of Anchorage - West Aid Station
The Tour will be Sunday, March 5th. The high school ski teams each have an aid station along the course. This is a fund raiser for the team but it also helps out the Nordic Skiing Association of Anchorage which does SO much to support the high school ski teams and local nordic skiing.
West’s station is at Westchester Lagoon. We are looking for parents and skiers to volunteer at the aid station. We will have 2 shifts: 8:45 AM - 11:15 AM and 11:00 AM - 1:30 PM. Please contact Frank Mitchell at Frank.Mitchell@bp.com if you can help
END OF SEASON POTLUCK & AUCTION!
When: Tuesday, February 28th, 6-9 PM (come early if you can help set up)
Where: Kincaid Chalet
Who: All skiers & parents
What to Bring: Bring your favorite potluck dish to share. Plates and utensils will be provided and Bear Tooth will be supplying some pizza.
This evening is a night for the kids to celebrate their successes and to make some money for the team! The income from this fundraiser is truly a "boost" to our team--allowing us to pay for things like extra coaches, equipment, and buses. There will be lots of silent auction items and also special adventures or parties, such as Tres Amigos Spring Feast, Moroccan Dinner Party, Wine and Cheese Party, and more! Cash donations will also be accepted. If you have items to donate for the silent auction, please contact Jen Gordon at 907-240-0206 or email@example.com.
