U12 and U10 Weekend of 3/23 and 3/24 - slight change to plans

Hello U12 and U10 Families,

The snow we are getting today is impacting the FIS race schedule for the races we are hosting this weekend, which impacts some of the plans for us this weekend.  Due to the weather the BBQ has been cancelled and see below for some location updates in BOLD!

Saturday 3/23:  U10/12 Olympics plus End of the Season Awards with Parent vs Athlete Race - NO BBQ

Here is the schedule for U12 and U10 athletes (please note: if you have athletes in other age groups, their schedule or plans for the morning may differ):

8:30 am: Meet at the usual meeting spot - top of AB

8:30-approx 10:30 am: U12/10 Olympics - an old tradition of a fun assortment of contests like moguls, big air, and ski ballet :)!  Any skis are fine.

Approx 10:30 am - 12:30 pm: Parent vs Athlete Race - after the Olympics wrap up athletes will head over to BULL RUN (NASTAR) to run the dual panel SL set there.  Plan to meet your athlete there and challenge them if you dare!

1:00 pm: Awards will start at about 1 pm and be presented at the NASTAR START BUILDING.

Sunday 3/24: On-snow race demo in the Bull Run/Nastar area (demo tents will be set up above the NASTAR start with some small training courses on NASTAR for testing)

This is an amazing opportunity for our athletes to test next year's skis and make a determination on what they want to order by actually seeing how the skis ski!  Most programs don't have this opportunity available to them right at their own mountain!! Most major brands will be represented.  The demo will start at 8:30 am and continue until about 12 pm, at which time the reps will be packing up. Please have your athlete arrive by 10:30/11 am at the latest in order to get some testing in before the demo ends.  We will not have a formal meeting time for U10/12s, nor will there be formal training groups skiing together, but coaches will be on hand to help your athletes select appropriate skis to test.  I'll be in touch with any further details if need be.
