2nd Meeting...

Our second Ski Team meeting of the year will be this Thursday under the stairs in the Commons (on the couch outside the Clearwater room, 1st floor) at 8 pm. Here we will be collecting dues (if you've got them), Canada trip money, USCSA forms (see below) and there will be USSA form help if you need it. There may be some little general announcements, too.






For those interested in racing, both of these are required. Returning racers have until 10/15 to avoid paying a late fee on the USSA paperwork.

First Meeting

Okay, it's now been set: the first Ski Team meeting of the year is at 8:00 pm on 9/11/08. Location hasn't been nailed down quite yet, but you'll hear about it when it is. We're going to talk about things like going to Canada for a men's World Cup race, traveling around the NW for our 4 competitions, and our January ski camp.

Secondly, dryland training is kicking off this next week on Tuesday. Workouts will meet at the east entrance of the Kibbie dome at 5:30 pm Monday-Thursday.

Mountain bike rides on Moscow Mountain will resume next Sunday at 11:00 am. Meet at Mountain View Park and we'll carpool from there up to the hill.

October 12 we are booked to help out with some trail maintenance on Moscow Mountain. This is a way for us to give a little back to our community and a good reason to hang out and eat at the barbeque we'll have afterwords. This is an event with WSU's ski team, too. More information will come out as the day draws near.
