Casper was hard and long but we endured! Skiing at over 8000 feet is an experience. Congrats to those who skied their first race ever!
THIS WEEK PRACTICE:
We skate every day if you have them. If not Classic. We improve technique and ski some distance. Be prepared to work no matter what. (Monday- Thursday)
Friday: Wax skis for Lander. Only those going to Lander need to be here. Others enjoy your day off.
We have had issues with skiers just not paying attention. Some have missed the bus to practice, some have wandered off at practice, some have come but not brought their skis. This seems to be a growing thing. Parents how do we help?
The LJHS Team will be providing all the staffing the Laramie Area Games!
We leave LJHS at Noon. Be home around 3:30 -4PM We are invited tot he victory dinner at Big Brothers/ Sisters at 5:30.
This is a volunteer thing. You will miss school. It will be excused and a Ski team function. You must let Coach Hamann know if you are going by Tuesday. You have to be on the excused from school list to go.

If you helped at Special Olympics we will fast wax your skis before the race.!
Again Coach Hamann needs an idea of who is going..
We have 2 new faces on our staff of Coaches!
Eric Dye and Ginger Shenefelt
They come from Red Lodge, MT to help out. They are great teachers and are already pushing our skiers to be better. Races are more organized as they truly get to work getting skiers on skis and to the tracks! Say hello and thanks when you see them!
Coach Hamann brought henna for the bus ride to Casper. It was a great way to keep my girls quiet and sitting down. It has to dry for about 30 minutes! No Mustaches!
