Where is the time going??? 10 days (or less by the time you guys read this) til Santa comes and 3 weeks until our Alberta Cup Race- which, in case you guys forgot are qualifiers for Alberta Winter Games and the Arctic Winter Games.
We will be having a parent/athlete meeting about Alberta Winter Games and Arctic Winter Games on Thursday, Dec 19. All details that we have currently will be given out that evening and will try to answer as many questions as possible. If you cannot make this meeting but your athlete is still planning on trying out for the games (which ever one), please let me know so that we can set up a different time to meet and the information can be passed on to you.
Tuesday: Skate- it'll be fast and furious out there so bring out the fast skis and we will be working hard! Don't forget that water bottle!!
Thursday: Skate from 5:45-6:15. 6:20-6:45 meet about the Arctics and Alberta Winter Games. 6:45-7:15 Christmas gift exchange. Please note that we will not be done at 7 and expect to stay a bit later than normal- it's Christmas!!
Saturday: I will not be here as I'm away working on part ? of ? part coaching course… the never ending saga… BUT I do recommend that you go for a nice LOOOONNNNGGG Steady ski- classic, dress warmly, bring a snack and water bottle. Midget and younger should ski the Burgess course in entirety without stopping. Juvies and older should ski the North Blue trail. Have fun and don't ski alone- find a buddy.
For the week of Christmas- go out and ski as much as you can!! There will be no practice on the 24th but there will be on the 26th- can we do it earlier? Say from 1-4:30? If you're interested post below before next week. Saturday the 28th will be from 10-12 and on the 31st we can also do an earlier practice time- say from 2-4 or 6:30am-8:30am works for me too!;) Let me know as I will plan to do it if the majority of the team will be there.
