November 29, 2016 - Service Ski NEWS


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.

Saturday post race

Spaghetti feed is at the Brubaker house – details to come. Time 6:30-9:30pm. There will be a grade designated to bring a dessert.

Parent party is at the Schumacher house – details to come. Time 7pm-9pm appetizer & dessert potluck style / BYOB. Booster fund provides for NA beverages and some food. There is only one parent party but there is a spaghetti feed on the evenings of the Saturday races.

Thank you!

Daily Practice Routine

1. Be dressed out and ready for practice BEFORE our daily meeting at 2:20
2. Check the white board outside the ski room for daily workout
3. Meet with your coach in the area they specify. IF YOU DO NOT SKI WITH YOUR COACH, YOU DO NOT GET CREDIT FOR THAT DAY (unless you ski with another coach for just that day and that coach confirms it is okay. Keep in touch for your safety.
4. New to the hillside trails? Print out a map and take it with you during practices.
5. Enjoy the ride!

Waxing Skis

Skiers - you are responsible for waxing your own skis however, the whole team waxes the day before each race. Don't forget, we have a wax clinic in November that is mandatory - this is a great place to learn to wax your skis!
