U12 and U10 Weekend of 2/10 and 2/11

Hello U12 and U10 Families,
Great weekend of SL last weekend!  Hope everyone had fun at the camp and/or race at Quechee!  We had some great results!!  Congrats to the following U12s for bringing home a medal:
Girls: Abby Kelleher 1st, Bridget Waters 5th, Samantha Mecane 7th, Ella Breitenbach 10th (note that the 4th place finisher according to the reults Clare Willard was from out of Council, so per MVC rules she got a duplicate award and awards were given as if she wasn’t there….hence going to 11th place for the 10th place medal)
Boys: Tad D’Andrea 4th, Logan Marra 6th, Carter Robinson 8th
We have a busy weekend coming up, so please read carefully!

U10 Skills and Dual Panel SL at Pico on Saturday:
Be sure to pre-register and pay for your child at this link by Friday at noon! https://adminskiracing.com/node/122250
Registration is 7:30 am in the upstairs of the Andrea Mead Lawrence Lodge, which is in between the Pico Ski Club and The Ski Shop/Main Lodge.  Have your athlete register themselves please!  Athletes pick up bibs and lift ticket at registration.  Please remind athletes to put their bibs on immediately and do not lose them!  We leave our bags and get ready downstairs in the Main Base Lodge (park on the right hand side of the main parking lot and go straight through the condos – base lodge is on the right), not in the Andrea Mead Lawrence Lodge.
 
We will have an athlete meeting at 8:45 am in front of ski club which is at the at the base of the B-slope lift/bottom of the race trail (go out of the base lodge and go left if you are facing the mountain) and then athletes will go with their assigned groups for the Skills portion of the day.  Skills will go from 9-10:30 am, break from 10:30-11:15 and athletes will meet their groups again at 11:20 pm in front of the ski club. The Dual SL will start at 12:15 pm and athletes will run once on each course.   Awards about 30 minutes after the completion of the dual.  The awards are only for the dual and are based on the best team (team being the group that the athletes trained with in the morning).  The skills portion is not scored.
U12 Second Year Super G Camp at Okemo on Sunday:
Be sure to pre-register and pay for your child at this link by Thursday at 11:59 pm! https://adminskiracing.com/node/121493

Athletes should wear their GS suits like a race day (but have warm clothing over it – pants and jacket!) and be on their GS skis for this event.  Registration is from 7:30-8:30 am in the upstairs of the Okemo Competition Center.   Athletes will get their bibs (they have bibs even though it isn’t a race) and then meet in the basement of the Summit Lodge for the camp meeting at 9 am sharp – be early. They will be with the camp all morning, have lunch from about 11:45-12:30 (they should plan to eat in the Summit Lodge because we will meet back there at 12:30 pm for the afternoon) and then be back with the camp until 3 pm.  Much easier logistically than a typical race day.

That’s all for now!
Thanks,
Mariel
