Your skier has just received an email from Nicholas Werner and Emily Wagg about whether they would be interested in purchasing a Team Jacket. If you could ask them to reply this weekend if at all possible it would be really helpful. These jackets are 100% optional and are intended to build team unity and raise the team profile.
After talking to a number of companies and other teams, the jacket that they selected is the Feather Pack 800 (MEN and WOMEN) in Black from EMS. Because it is the 2017 model, the jacket is steeply discounted — but there are limited quantities. Normally $250+ without the team logo, with the discounts, an EMS Team Discount, and support from Ross, our jackets will cost between $100-$110 each depending on what LT’s Inc. tells us about the cost of customization.
As Ross mentioned in his previous email, we have a few important dates to add to your calendars:
- Monday, November 26, 2018 (immediately after the first practice): Wyatt Dumas, Head Coach, will have a Family/Team Meeting to provide an overview of the season.
- December Break: While there may be Captains’ Practice(s) during December break, these are not mandatory and the team will not have official practices, trips or overnights during the break. However, the Wednesday,1/2/19 race occurs the day before Waynflete classes resume (only held if there is sufficient snow).
- Sunday to Tuesday, February 17-19, 2019: The Class C State Championship Meet in Farmington at Titcomb Mountain. The team will be staying at the Comfort Inn & Suites in Wilton for the nights of Sunday 2/17 and Monday 2/18 for races on 2/18 and 2/19. These dates are the first few days of February vacation week so we wanted to get it in your calendars ASAP. Because the team is relatively small, most — if not all — skiers will be asked to attend and ski in the State Championship if possible.
Currently, our regular season race dates (mostly Wednesdays and Saturdays) are as follows:
