Tuesday February 12th is our final race “The Little Brown Jug”. This is the battle of the Bay against Petoskey and is a dual event format. The athletes will be racing two runs of slalom on the Race Arena, and two runs of GS on Birch Run. The athletes will be dismissed from school at 1:30 with the race beginning at 3:00. Girls will start in slalom, boys in GS. There will be time in between disciplines for the athletes to change gear and slip and inspect courses.
After the race there will be awards, cake and refreshments in the cafeteria. There will be trophies awarded to the top 3 in each discipline and medals awarded from 4th to 10th place in each discipline. The little Brown Jug will be awarded to the winning 7th and 8th grade teams (one for boys and one for girls), and the Little Brown Mugs will be awarded to the winning 6th grade teams.
This race is being co-hosted by Harbor Springs and Petoskey, so if you want to help out please sign up to volunteer. For spectators, you can easily see both courses from the finish coral at bottom of the hills.
Ski Team Banquet was originally on the calendar for Monday the 18th Tenatively. We would bring in pizza and assign families to bring salad, desert, drinks, etc. I hope this new date works with everyone.
All for now. As always, please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
