Eric, Hans, and the Volunteer Coaches
Hi All, Some last minute Details:
First, Huge thanks to Eric outstanding pour-it-on communications, I think everything has come together (if everyone shows up!). And huge thanks to you all--nothing could happen without you! Jobs and meeting times (places are below). Look forward to it!
Timing: Please show up on time by 9:30...haha....Hand timing with 4-5 (Jobs: timer, time recorder (1 or 2), order of finish recorder, runner and back up)
Course info Draft attached--please let me know of changes asap--will send it out this evening to coaches.
Format: Waves of 10--off registrations sheets, girls follow boys by 1 minute
Snow Conditions: well-transformed snow and about 30 degrees predicted (very stable temp at 30 over preceding 12 hours) --will likely be purple-range klister--perhaps covered with hard wax. We may get a trace of new snow. Kick Wax: we will wax from 9-10 at the race. Kid's kick zones should come scraped clean--or melt/cork in a thin Swix VG 35 binder (optional--for longer races). Glide wax: tips and tails-- CH 8 or equivalent-- scrape and brush well.
Weather Conditions: HIGH WIND ALERT!! Wind should pick up from the west and is predicted blow at 20 mph, gusting to 30-40 during race time. Though the temps will be mildish, they will drop through the afternoon and wind chill could be brutal. Workers should way overdress. Maybe we should consider a race loop direction change, so skiers get a tail -wind in the field? (.....or leave it how it is for maximum character building?) Any votes?
