Announcements & Schedule: Week of January 22, 2018

posted Jan 21, 2018, 10:22 AM by Sid Voss   [ updated Jan 21, 2018, 10:45 AM ]

Read each day carefully; there are some complications for Monday and Tuesday.  Also, come to practice Monday ready to ski or for an indoor workout.

Monday, January 22
We will go to French Regional Park to ski, or have an indoor workout at school, depending on the weather.  After practice we have a Pasta Party at North Junior High cafeteria.

Here are the "ifs"
—If the predicted snow comes and French Park is able to groom their trails, we will bus to French, leaving HHS at 3:10 and return to HHS at around 5:00, and then go to the Pasta Party at North.
If the predicted snow does not come, or if the road conditions are extremely poor, we will have an indoor work out at HHS, followed by the Pasta Party.
—Watch for Remind messages during the day, in case the weather is bad and after school activities are canceled by the district.

On Monday, Varsity skiers must take a  couple of minutes to clean the klister off their kick zones.  Your glide wax is good for Tuesday's possible classic race at Baker.

Tuesday, January 23
If you thought Monday was complicated, check out the "ifs" for Tuesday:
If we get the predicted snow, Varsity will have a Classic Race at Baker.
If we do not get the snow, Varsity, JV1 and JV2 will bus to Wirth for practice, leaving HHS at 3:10
If the Varsity race does happen, we might be able to get a bus for JV1 and JV2 to go to either French or Wirth—we will let you know. 

Wednesday, January 24
No complications for this day:  Bus to Wirth, leaves at 3:10.  (JV 2 can come too!)

Thursday, January 25
JV 1 and JV 2 Champs Race at Elm Creek.  This is the last JV1/JV2 race of the season.  Details and signup will be posted on Tuesday. 

Friday, January 26 and Saturday, January 27
