Home after pizza.  We will text or call when we get close to home.  Probably around 8PM

Things to remember:  Come dressed to ski.  The weather looks good. Lets sport our flames!  Bring healthy snacks and drinks, No Soda before the meet.  Bring your classic gear, hats gloves, warm jacket. Pillow and blanket and things to do on the bus. Comfy clothes for the ride home.  We will have the possibility to stop and get a snack like before. 5$ max for snacks if you want.   Buses will be divided boys and girls.

Beaver Creek Nordic Ski Area is located South of Lander on Highway 28 at mile post 51.5. Where the highway crosses Beaver Creek.  22 miles from the town of Lander. Look for a bunch of school buses!

Parents and fans: the start of the race is about 1/2 mile hike/ski/snowshoe from the parking lot.   If you are planning on attending this race come prepared to hike it in.  Snow boots, winter clothes etc. It is interesting to get in but worth it.

 Food for the trip.
We will take 2 buses and eat breakfast on the bus.  
So far this is what is being donated: Bagels for one bus, fruit for one bus, Yogurt sticks enough for one bus.  A huge box of cliff bars!

We could use: bagels and cream cheese for 30, Cream cheese for 30,  fruit for 30, juice or drinks (no soda) for all.

Remember if you plan n driving your child to or from the meet I need a special form signed.  They are in the team notebook that I usually leave on the bus! 

Go Scouts!

PS We have a new coach.  Introducing Coach Carlson.  He is a teacher at LJHS and now spends his afternoons hanging with the coolest team at LJHS.

Really this is all I have for  now!
