U12 and U10 Training for 2/6-2/8

Hello U12 and U10 Families,
First of all, congrats to the U12s for winning back the Boot on Saturday at Pico!  All U12s skied very well and made the coaches proud!   We also hope those who attended the SG camp really enjoyed the day – we saw a lot of smiles and improvement!
We are heading into another busy weekend!  Please read this email carefully!
OMS Valentine Camp is now closed for registration – if you have signed your athlete up you will receive detailed info later this week on what to expect next week.  If you still owe paperwork or payment, please return that ASAP.
Friday 2/6: U12 and U10 Quechee SL camp – for those of you whose athletes are signed up to attend the Quechee SL camp (NO more openings).  The basics of the day are registration for the camp (which will proceed similarly to registration for a race) is in the downstairs of the base lodge from 7:30 – 8:15 AM. Entry is $30 and includes a lift ticket. The athletes should be ready to ski and meet outside of the base lodge at 8:40 am.  Mike, Dale, Christie, Al, and I will be there, but they will likely be skiing with other coaches from other mountains. They will be with the camp for the remainder of the day. They need to bring a lunch or buy one from the cafeteria.  See driving directions below.

This weekend’s race info —
Details for U10 and U12s Stubby SL at Quechee:
U10s race SATURDAY; U12s race SUNDAY
Registration is in the basement of the Quechee base lodge from 7:30-8:30 am. The entry fee for the race is $30. Your athlete will get his or her lift ticket and bib here – keep the reminders coming about not losing bibs! Parent tickets are $22 and sibling tickets are $17 and available at the ticket booth at the bottom of the chair.  You do not need to ski to be able to view the race.
For both days, coaches will meet the athletes at 8:25 am at the base of the lift to go for free runs and inspection.
U10s: The first run starts at 9:30 am and the second run will start about 5 minutes after the completion of the first. Same order for both runs for U10s.  This is a small venue and the race trail is visible from the lodge so planning to be at the top for first and second run should be easier for the kids – still give them some guidance though! Awards by best single run time about one hour after the completion of the race.
U12s: The first run starts at 9:30 am and the second run will start about an hour after the first run ends.  Keep in mind that the athletes will meet their coaches again for second run inspection.  Athletes should listen to coaches and announcements for a time for second run inspection and start times.  Second run is in reverse order within gender and awards are combined time about one hour after the completion of the race.
Take 100 North (the right hand turn before Jackson Gore). In Plymouth, take a right onto 100A. When this dead ends at Rt 4, take a right. This will go through Bridgewater and Woodstock – watch for cops in both towns! The speed limit goes down to 25 twice – obey the speed limit. Continue through Woodstock and after a few miles as you come to the town of Taftsville (don’t blink) you will see a big red covered bridge with a green roof on the left.  Take a left to get to the bridge.  Go across it and head straight up the hill.  Follow this road for a mile or two until you see Quechee on your left.  You can either park before the white building (base lodge) or after it.   It takes about 50 minutes to get to Quechee.
Have a great week!
