The weather for Friday AM should not be much of a problem, maybe 1-2 " of snow forecast. My schedule in the morning may prevent me from being at practice, if I can get away I will likely be late. For any who can make it I suggest bringing skate skis and skiing the man made section at the Visitor Center. It is a very short stretch but not bad to start the ski year. Try a few up and backs without poles then w/poles and try the different skate techniques, especially V-2 and V-2 alt. I will be at practice Monday and Tuesday next week and will send out a plan for Monday on Sunday.
Best wishes for a Happy Holiday to you all and your families. Think snow!
P.S. If we get more snow than predicted, you may be able to ski on the trails.

This week your skier was given a ski team discount card to L.L. Bean. This card is active until the end of February and entitles the card holder to a 20% discount on ski gear, apparel and wax. Feel free to use their card if you are purchasing something on their behalf. Also, the cardholder gets 2 free hotbox treatments at L.L. Bean, to be used at any time during the season. When you shop at L.L. Bean, please thank them for their generosity.
Merriconeag nordic ski ties are available for purchase at both the high school and the grade school offices. Cost is $5 for one and $8 for a pair. Please see Lisa or Susan.
