Midgets: First year midgets will be headed to Midget Champs at Sovereign. Second year midgets will be joining the Juveniles + for the skate skiing Enduro event. See details below.
Juveniles+: Skate skiing. We will be doing an Enduro event (there will be 3 downhill segments that you will be timed on. The uphill segments of the course will not be timed). Use older skis/poles. Meet in the chalet at 10am to sign in and get your timing stick. You must ski all 3 segments to get a result. You may ski any of the segments multiple times if you want to (your reward for the effort of skiing back up to the top!) and only your best time on each segment will count toward your final time. Cookies for all finishers and prizes for fastest Midget, Juvenile, Junior and Devo boy and girl. Remember that this is for fun so ski within your ability and do not hurt yourself. I can attest to the fact that the snow is soft to land in!
Devo: We will be joining the midgets and juveniles doing the Enduro (see juvenile comments above). If some prefer to join a Jackrabbit group for the session let Phil know at practice this week. I would recommend skating for the enduro. If you do classic I will have wax if you wear it off on the downhills. Use older skis and poles if you have them.
Western Canadian Championships plus OK Cup (Saturday) at Telemark in Kelowna. Jonathan has sent out registration details.
Friday - skate sprints (Midget and older)
Saturday - classic mass starts (Atoms and older)
