Weekly update 2/21.

More snow has fallen this week here at the Mnt, and we expect more throughout the weekend. All of this new snow has made for some great conditions on the Mnt, but may make for some changes to the schedule this weekend so stay tuned and keep your eye on the FB page or the USASA website for changes.

    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.

    In addition we will begin to sell 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.

See you all soon.
