Second, Plans! We have them!
The coaching team met this week to figure out the schedule for the rest of the year. Our general approach is we ski until we can't. That means that the end of the year is always weather dependent. Here are the plans:
Feb 17 (tomorrow)
Normal session. A focus on skills and then some fun on the hill.
Jackrabbit Olympics! We are planning some races and fun competition including another time trial to see how we have improved. More info to come (and we may need some parent help!)
Feb 27 (TUESDAY) Dash for Cash
This is a fun night of racing with other jackrabbits. Downtown Nordic and Assiniboine Park Jackrabbits host at Windsor park. This is geared to younger skiers with little or no racing experience. All the kids get something (chocolate dollars usually). And race winners at the various age levels get medals. We'll keep you posted about registering and attending. We had a good contingent last year and won a few races!
Games and skiing fun followed by hot chocolate (generously supplied by Tim Horton's) and Cookies (generously supplied by you - thanks!)
Jackrabbit Jamboree. This annual event brings together all the Jackrabbits in the city. We will be moving our base to Windsor Park Nordic Centre to attend. Separate registration is required and space is somewhat limited.
After the 10th it will be regular sessions until (theoretically) we run out of snow.
Tomorrow is looking nice, but not really warm. As always, layers are important, and don't underestimate the windchill!
Remember that if you are skiing with the family, the kids can earn Snow Goal stickers! (there are some details of that here http://skiwildwood.blogspot.ca/2017/11/saturday-november-18-and-notes-for-year.html)
If you are taking in Festival this weekend, have a great time! HE HO!
