Thank you everyone for your support and letters to nominate me for Coach of the Year. Award or no award, it is an honour to be a coach everyday. I love it and you guys- so thank you for your support in turn!

Great job on the team relay today!!! Thank you ALL for permitting me to teach the junior team about poor sportsmanship- it was a good lesson and they were all shocked that they could learn from my bad behaviour today!! I'll recap at practice on Tuesday for the rest of you! :D Great day of laughing and glamour!! See Wapiti Nordic FB Page for pics! Thank you Lori for posting those.

This month is flying by and there's still some house-keeping stuff to do… so pay attention to the blog!!!

  • Next week or the week following we will be doing the annual swimsuit edition- (although Fernandois pulled it off well today!!:) ) and the annual bring a friend to skiing (March 23). Bring a friend will be on a Thursday and swimsuit will be weather permitting- dates will be posted for this!!!
  • Year end party is set for April 7, 2017. It's a sleepover- more to come at a later date.
  • Team bonding day- March 19 after practice. We will be having a potluck lunch (I'll be bringing a large pot of Annie's noodles) veggies, drinks, snacks would be welcome. Glue, scissors, glitter, stickers, anything else crafty is welcome to bring to this- it's "make new posters and play games afternoon". If you can come and stay, great, leave early is fine, show for a bit- super awesome. Come out and participate. BRING PICTURES OF THE PAST 3 SEASONS!
  • Team photo day! Thursday 16th- wear your wapiti jacket. If you don't have one, wear a race suit top. 5:45 in the stadium.
  • Downhill Dash- this Sunday- the last of the 6PAC race series for this season! 

Tuesday- Classic. It may be our last one for a long time. :(

Thursday- Skate. PHOTO DAY!!! See notes above. We will practice the downhill dash course!!! :D

Saturday- Cancelled

Sunday-  12:00- potluck and posters. Posters to be finished after race. See note above. 
Downhill Dash- 2PM start at the top of Big Dipper (so show earlier than normal). Registration is 1-1:30 in the lodge- $5/racer. Hand timers will need to be used… I've asked Grant/Crawford to work on setting that course and will need help with a few v-boards to ensure no one gets lost on their dash!
