A little about the Cowboy Chase weekend:

     The money earned will help support UW Nordic Skiers and  High Plains Skiers going to Junior Nationals.  LJHS is assigned to donate bread.  Let me know if you can help with this. Get there early, when the food id gone it is gone.

Saturday 2-14-15
    Bus loads at 10AM from LJHS.  All team expected to be there!   3.5KM Freestyle Start time 12Noon,  Start location: Meadow. Spectators plan on skiing, snowshoeing or hiking about 1KM into the start. There is no warming hut so dress for the weather.  

There will be a concession stand with hot soup, chili and baked goods.  Again we are asking for donations of individually wrapped baked goods,  soup or chili.  There is a stove to warm things up.  The LJHS portion of the sales will go toward paying race officials.  Let Coach Hamann know if you can donate or just bring it up to the race.  I can take things up on Friday.

Parent Volunteers for the race are always appreciated:  Let me know which day. I will pass on your info to the race organizers. 

For those parents who want to race, there is a citizens option both Saturday and Sunday all info is at www.medicinebownordic.org  choose the racing information icon.

This is all I have for this week.  I will send out a separate blog for our last week and the Lander Ski Race.
