Hello Service Skiers & Boosters:
Details will become finalized this week but the plan will be for the Service Snowball race to be held at Kincaid on the manmade snow loop. Service still provides concessions – though the location has not been communicated to us yet as to where they want us to be. We need some helpers at the stand, set up helpers, and someone to return the Kaladi Brothers carafes to Brayton Drive Kaladi.
We also still need race volunteers. The jobs are not difficult. The NSAA needs personnel in addition to their usual “Green Grunts” to put on each race, so the “host team” provides parent volunteers. You may use Sign Up Genius to select an area to volunteer or a food to bring.

Secret Ski Buddies
The ski team chooses to do something called “Secret Ski Buddies”
On race days skiers give their designated ski buddy a gift. It should not be expensive, fancy, or anything complicated. Some kids make things, some draw things, some give candy, bandanas, lip balm, useful inexpensive ski items….nothing crazy. The captains set up a list and will tell each skier who the buddy is that they are assigned to give a gift to for each race. The fun is in trying to get the gift to their person without them finding out for the entire season. This should be driven by the kids, but it’s helpful if the parents are aware of this to help keep it on your skier’s radar. While it’s never 100% that every skier actually remembers to give their buddy a gift – or that their buddy shows up for every race….it’s a fun team building aspect that the kids like to do.
