February 5-20, 2018.

Hello Everyone,

Please check your emails for important information regarding games etc that I've added. I emailed out the notes from our team sit-down chat on Jan 25. If you have any questions please just email them to me and I'll get to them as I'm able.

A HUGE congratulations to those who raced with biathlon in Canmore and to Makena for her two silver medal finishes at Easterns in Quebec! Very proud of you all for your hard work and love seeing you all succeed. Remember to always have fun and that fun isn't measured in medal counts- but in how much you tried, the effort you put in and what you get out of it. Enjoy the games experience and take it all in!! See you when I get back. :)

Important: Alberta Cup 7/Cookie Race- registration will close on Feb 21, which is two days after I return and the day following our wax evening. Please register (separate events) on zone4 for these events. The Alberta Cup 7 is not including Peewee's this year, I have registered Mika up a category as she is going to be racing that category next season anyhow. Also, please email me to indicate whether your athlete(s) will or will not be joining us so that I can plan appropriately. Thank you!

Alberta Winter Games info: Will be emailed out by Jim in the coming week. Please pay close attention to the early departure of the buses on the morning of Friday and the late return on Monday. If skis can be waxed with CH6 in Ft Mac, this would help greatly with packing up on Tuesday to go to the Alberta Cup/Cookie Race.
