Weekly update for 3/1

We have reached another weekend.

Tomorrow we will once again offer a full day of training for all full time weekend riders. All groups will meet at the Club at 8am. We hope to set gates for SL in the afternoon.

Saturday all groups will meet at 8am and ride to 3pm. We will be setting GS gates on Exhibition hill under the gondi in the am. to prepare for Sunday's race.

A small group of riders will also be competing out of series HP at Mt. Snow. If your rider needs points to qualify for nationals through nationalranking this is a great chance to get the experience.  Riders will be leaving tomorrow to train in the HP and will compete on Saturday. Please contact me asap if your rider will be attending. Saturday registration is 7am-8am 9:00 event at the Carinthia base lodge. Entrance fee is $60.

Sunday Mar 3rd....NVT GS #3 and Slalom #3 @ Stowe

Registration is from 8-9am at the Midway Lodge. Anticipated 10am start. Event fee is $60 for the day.

Just a reminder we are selling our MMSC hoodies and hats to raise funds to offset the cost of nationals. All of us know how expensive nationals can be for everyone, so in order for us to keep our coaching costs down as low as we can, we need to offset the cost of Nationals with these extra funds. Please help us sell our hoodies and in return help all of those going to nationals. We have hoodies available for men and woman in sizes S,M,and L. All hoodies will cost $75 and hats cost $20 please make any checks out to Scott Adam. See Scott, Jamal. or Nick to pick them out.

Also in order to begin to book our nationals reservations, we will need to once again take deposits for the trip on last years rate of $700 per kid. Our 2013 cost may be slightly higher or lower depending on the reservations we can find and the number of riders going. We will look for 50% of the projected total which equals $350 from all riders going to Nationals asap. The cost covers, coaches travel fee's, coaches transportation, coaches lodging, tuning supplies, daily coaches per-diem, and pay-rates. I will be collecting all of the funds and making the reservations with my own account so please make any checks out to Scott Adam. Once we have booked our reservations and the rest of the costs are added we will announce a final price, the balance will be due 10 days before the start of Nationals. The longer it takes to book the trip the high our prices are so please get your deposit for nationals in asap, so we can lock in a fare price.
