Battle Creek Announcements 2/23/20
We will meet again at Battle Creek at 2:00 today. Please get there in plenty of time to get your skis on and be ready to ski at 2:00. With the group skiing further and faster, its hard for us to find the groups that have already left.
Level 1 skiers -- Today is a very exciting day. Poles!!!! Please bring your poles. If your skier was not given poles with their rental equipment, there will be some for your skier to use. You can take them home with you and return them in March.
This weekend was the Birkie, Korte and Prince Haaken races in Wisconsin. We had may coaches complete the full Birkie. WOW! Because of this, we might be low on some coaches if people do not make it back in time for club. If you are able to jump in and ski along with a group (perhaps you just finished the Endurance United Classes?) please do so!
We have quite a few openings for snack the next couple of weeks. We definitely have enough cheese sticks, but we are in need of other snacks. Please sign up to bring snack here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dlq9YlDDCqOAvhiP8-EfWqWrysvTDUTAHGeu4k2lUrw/edit?usp=sharing
One last announcement: Did you hear that one of our level 3 coaches is the MN State Champion? Coach Henry won the state meet. Henry learned to ski at Battle Creek SkiSparks, participated in Skiwerx (MYSL's learn to train program), and still does most of his training at Battle Creek with Endurance United and his High School team, MPA. Level 3 skiers, maybe you can do some double poling today and see how far Henry can go with each double pole!
