What a great weekend! Congratulations to everyone who participated in the second world cup!! Everyone did an absolutely fantastic job! We did take video of the racers and you can find them on Sprongo. I apologize in advance for the second run video as Harriet did not realize there was a “draw” button on the video camera, which she hit by accident, so there are scribbles on the video. Please find the videos at this link: https://sprongo.com/playlists/157962/68183/t
For those of you that were here this past weekend, you saw that Zander is back and has been cleared to ski for the rest of the season! Unfortunately, this weekend Adria took a fall and will be out for the rest of the season. Please send good vibes her way so she can heal quickly!
Next weekend, (March 3) we will have a race called the Heinz Paul. It is a fundraiser to raise money to buy equipment for our program. The U8s will be participating. I believe the race will take place on suntanner on March 3rd. Parents are welcome to register and race as well. As soon as I know more details I will post where and how you can register your racer.
The following weekend, Saturday March 9th we will have our tubing party in sun bowl after skiing. I am going to talk with families this weekend to make sure that this is a good weekend so our attendance is high. As soon as I speak with a majority of the families I will let you know when it is okay to buy your tubing ticket.
Ps- this week's secret code for reading the blog is the word under gate.
