March 27-April 7, 2017.


"They" say that as you get older each season/year passes more and more quickly… I don't think I can get much older, because this year just flew by!!! :(      Hold the dinosaur comments… please!

This is the last blog of the season… and will be edited as details get sorted for the windup party.

Tuesday- Skate

Thursday- Skate- this will be our last practice of the season.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR PARENTS: If you are intending your athlete(s) to be on the team for the 2017/18 season, there will be a MANDATORY parent meeting April 7 upon drop-off of the athletes 5:45-6:45. This is an important meeting to discuss what direction the team is going in for next year etc. Please come with paper and pen in hand.

April 7/8 = year end windup party for the team. It is a sleepover party, we were thinking of showing "Fantastic Beasts and where to find them" (someone needs to bring a projector) (and a few kids need to make sure that they can watch it- it's PG13).
Wind-up party start- 5:30pm

Hotdog supper- we will need 2 doz buns, there are lots of hotdogs
Veggies- a veggie tray would be great
Cake- Liam is bringing dessert
Snacks- popcorn, chips, pop, candy… everything that I say no to all year long are welcome to this windup

Followed by games, movie, sleep, bring your own breakfast, clean up and pickup by 10am Saturday as the AGM is starting at 11am. This is the gist of the evening- I believe headlamps are a must (or glow-sticks) and more details to come...

Have a great summer and play hard! I'll see you in the beginning of September- around the 7th.

March 20-26, 2017

Great job with the posters today crew and the downhill dash!! We still have a long way to catch up with Nathan… but that's ok- we can do it!! ;D

This week is making sure we jam in all the sessions we haven't done yet, just in case all the snow is gone by next week. My intention is to try and ski next week still… We shall see. :(

Tuesday- Swimsuit ski. Although next Tuesday looks way warmer than this Tuesday… there may not be any snow- so let's take our chances!! Photos at 5:45- ski until 7. Skate skiing- we said good bye to our classic skis last week. :( Please make sure you summer wax your skis- something warm and cheap should be put on them.

Thursday- Bring-a-friend to practice. We will be on skate skis- but have the fish scales for the newbies. And each needs to bring $10 as I've never realized that they need to pay their day-use membership. I'm sorry I've never thought of this in the past.

Saturday- Skate ski- bring rock skis and keep your fingers crossed that we can still ski by then.

Team Wind-up will be April 7- it's a sleepover in the lodge. Details still need to be worked out so come with ideas to Thursday's practice. 


Junior Race Team

Thursday- Swimsuit ski- bring your swim suits and goofy outfits and photos will be at 5:45! Skate skiing with Coach Caroline afterwards- with clothes on! :D This will be the last ski of the season for you guys. Parents, please remember that a layer of warm, cheap wax is recommended for the skis to have on them so that they don't sit and dry out all summer.

Sunday- 1-3pm Team Wind-up party. I'll need a volunteer to start the fire outside for us please. Hotdogs and buns will be provided by Mika. If condiments can be brought, a potato salad of sorts, a veggie platter and a dessert- that would be great. I'll send out an email with everyone's names on it, who will be attending the wind-up party and each person can place their name on an item- with a reply-all to the group, that may be the easiest. Thank you everyone for your help with this! And thank you for your participation in this successful season!
