Hopefuls First Race Day 1/10/15

We had some great training days over the holiday week, including some challenging conditions. The kids skied great, enjoyed some new friendships and worked on numerous drills. This Saturday will be our first race. The race will take place on the NASTAR course on Bull Run. We will meet with our teams in front of the Sugar House at 9 am and proceed to the race arena to inspect the courses. The race will start at 9:45. The race is run in a dual format and all athletes will take two runs, one on each course. Parents should plan to pick their kids up at the finish area at the end of the race, we will not be returning to the Sugar House at 11 am. The Hopeful races always have a great spectator turnout so please be sure to come on out and cheer on all of our athletes.

The afternoon session will begin, as usual, at noon and we’ll ski with our teams until 2 pm. At 2 pm we’ll have a brief awards ceremony in front of the Sugar House and will post race results on the OMARA website later Saturday afternoon.

Weather temps look to be pretty chilly for Saturday so please dress your children appropriately. The race dates for this season are as follows: 1/10, 1/24, 2/17, 3/7 and 3/21. See you all on Saturday.
