Catamount Interclub Fun Race 3/10

Hi all!

Looking forward to tomorrow’s race and end of year party! Please try to arrive at mountain by 830 so we can have an accurate list of participants.

All racers should meet their coaches at the Catamount chair as usual at 9 sharp to ski and then inspect when course is ready.

We will plan on starting the race at 10. There will be 2 timed runs (run without a lunch break)

At the end of the second run, we hope that some parents and coaches will give the course a try- and will have all the racers gathered at the bottom of the course to cheer!! Maybe we can get a group photo then.

After the race, we will meet in the taconic lodge for a pizza and pot luck party/end of year interclub party with awards for all and trophies for race winners. Feel free to bring a dish, beverage, utensils, cups, or napkins to contribute to the pot luck.

We could use help tomorrow with race and party. Please check when you arrive as to how you can help.

Thanks !!
