Hello U12 and U10 Families,

Saturday 3/28: Looks to be the day for the great Parent-Athlete Race, the end of season awards, and potentially an on-snow race demo!! Stay tuned for more details.
 
I will get out a separate communication later this week regarding the post-season events for the U12s and other March open race opportunities for U12 and U10s.
 
Details for the U12 Stubby SL on Sunday, March 1 at Suicide Six:
Registration is in the Ski Runner’s Building (to the right of the lift) from 7:30 -8:30 am.  We must use the regular base lodge for getting ready and storing items. Entry is $30 – cash or check only (made payable to WSR) or you can pre-pay at adminskiracing.com (direct link found on this page: http://www.vara.org/race/mvc-u12-stubby-slalom/582/).  Please have your athlete register him or herself.   I believe parent tickets are available, but you do not need to ski to view the whole race.
 
Coaches will meet athletes at 8:10 am outside of the base lodge/at the base of the lift – it is a small place.
The first run will start at 9:30 am.  The second run will be one hour after the completion of the first.  Remember that the course will be re-set for the U12s and we will do a second run inspection prior to the start of the second run.  Athletes should stay tuned to coaches instructions in case of changes in timing.  Second run is in reverse bib order within gender.
 
Directions to Suicide Six: From Ludlow, head towards Jackson Gore, but just before it turn right onto RT 100 N. When you enter Plymouth, turn right onto Rt. 100A. When this dead ends at RT 4, take a right. Watch for cops when the speed limit drops in Bridgewater! Continue until you enter Woodstock. Just past the green, take a left onto RT 12. You will go over a little bridge and then bear right. After a mile or so, you will come to a fork in the road. Go right at the fork. (there are signs for Suicide Six at this point) Go another few miles and you will come to Suicide Six on the left hand side. OBEY SPEED LIMITS EVERYWHERE – the cops are bad along this whole route, esp. in and around Woodstock.  It takes about 45 -50 minutes to get to Suicide Six.
See you all this weekend!!
Best,
Mariel
