We will hold our first HVRC practice this Sunday, December 11th from 10:00 AM – Noon. Racers should meet outside old Glaciers; booted up and ready to ski at 10:00 AM. Coach Steve and Coach Todd will meet you there. This will be a typical early season practice with reminders about fundamentals that are used in racing.
The HVRC board will be meeting via conference call this week. Look for updates next week regarding our early season parents meeting and practice schedule changes the weekend of the 17th/18th. The weather forecast looks good so we’re hoping to be in position to set gates that weekend. Christmas Week will be quite busy for us. Several practices are scheduled and the Vector Races on the 30th are an important day for J3’s. J1-J3 racers planning to compete in the Vector Races on Friday, December 30th should be registering by December 16th. I’m told the race is not yet listed on their website, but it should be soon. Remember that there are two races that day so remember to register for both races.
Have a closet filled with outgrown or no longer used ski apparel, boots, or equipment?The Hidden Valley Race Club is piloting a “Craig’s List” for skiers, in which race members can post items they’d like to sell, and browse for ski stuff they’d like to buy. We’re starting simple, so here’s all you have to do:
Send an email to Sandy Blasey (firstname.lastname@example.org). Include a short description of the item, including brand, size, color, men’s/women/s/youth, and the price you’d like to get. If price is flexible, say so. If you’d like to include a photo, simply add it as an attachment. Make sure to include an email address where potential buyers can contact you.
The item will be posted on the race website, but it will be up to the buyer to contact the seller directly. Questions? Contact Sandy
