Championships were amazing!! Thank you everyone for all of your assistance to have such a successful weekend!
Team Wapiti is amazing and has always been! As a coach, it's a great feeling when I have other coaches coming up to me all weekend to ask about our team, or compliment you athletes on how great you guys are not just in speed but in support of each other… so thank you! Thank you for being a great group this year and motivational across the province. :D It doesn't go unnoticed and I don't say it often enough- you're all super awesome!
A huge congrats to Zoe who got a gold in the North American SnowShoeing Championships on the plains of Abraham in Quebec this past weekend as well!! We look forward to hearing about your trip when you get back!
This week- most of the team are post season and there's a few who will be still ramping things up for nationals- so we're all going to support those who are going to Nationals AND prepare for the the remaining 6 PAC races- team relay's & downhill dash.
Team Relays- are this Sunday (March 12) in the lodge. Come dressed up in your team outfit! Teams are: 1 boy& 1 girl. Relays will be run like they were in Canmore- First person starts, second person goes, first person goes, second person goes, first person goes and second person finishes. CLASSIC RACE Start at 2pm. Registration is 1-1:30 in the lodge ($5/racer). Distances: 9 and under candy cane lane; 10-15 Sun puppy and Candy Cane lane; 16+ Sun Puppy and Clawridge. Ages are guesses and you can choose which distance you would like! I will need a few people to help with setting up the course- it's short and can be walked. :)
Downhill Dash- is next Sunday (March 19) 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 will ask 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!
Tuesday- Classic- we have enough snow finally, so we may as well work on some classic technique! :D
Thursday- Classic- we haven't done enough!!!
Saturday- Skate- we will be doing some hill work- bring a snack.
