INFORMATION FOR THE 2&3 DAY PROGRAM:
|Location:||Oak Hill – COLD AND WINDY! Dress appropriately! Buffs, toe warmers, layers!|
|Wax Recommendation:||V30/blue – two or three thin layers corked into the kick zone of the ski. You can do this tonight with your child and then send your skier with a cork and some wax in a baggie in his/her pocket in case s/he needs more. For an 8 min video on what to do, go here. Forward to minute 5:38 to get to the part on actually applying the kick wax, but the whole thing is pretty good if you have the time. Coaches will help those with questions tomorrow.|
|Upcoming Event/Race:||Mansfield Duathlon at Craftsbury, Sunday 1-24-16. To register, https://www.nensa.net/calendar/index.php?id=1758|
Last week was a challenging week for xc logistics. Thanks to all our coaches for making our indoor days fun and productive and to parents and skiers for their flexibility and positive attitudes. You can go to our “photos” link to see some shots of what we did inside at MCS.
At the end of Thursday’s practice, we will have our second snacks of the season. It’s a fun time for kids and parents to socialize after practice. Our first one was a great success – lots of food & smiles. We will have a table set-up and provide drinks (cocoa, lemonade) and we have reusable cups for the kids.
We are asking families to please bring something to share (homemade or store-bought). Anything snackable is welcome – cookies, chips, fruit. You may drop-off your contribution at 3:30pm or bring it to the party at around 4:20 – please come find us by the hut at the far end of the parking lot.
