Hello SKI FANS!
Things are happening in the (pre season) of ski season for the coaches, the ski booster club and at Giant's Ridge!
I KNOW things are happening for you skiers too, as the updates unfold on your school's social media pages & local newspapers- of who is doing what, where, when & how!
Keep those fall coaches happy, and always...
1) DO THE RIGHT THING. 2) DO YOUR BEST. 3) TRUST THE PROCESS. 4) HAVE FUN. 5) SMILE.
The results will surface at the right time, AND ... you'll be ready for the 2016/2017 ski season! :)
Those "things" that are front & center:
FALL MAGAZINE DRIVE!
Friday, Sept. 30th, 4-6 pm at the Village Inn Parking Lot. Volunteers are needed to unload. This is a super successful TEAM FUNDRAISER that helps our team with ski trips, apparel, wax & more.
Please call Sandy Tardiff at 229-2199 to sign up.
WEST YELLOWSTONE SKI TRIP!
No, the info isn't posted (yet), but like our team's FaceBook page for (soon) upcoming posts.
The date of this trip is Friday, Nov. 18 - Sat. Nov. 26, and open to skiers who have skied 2 full seasons on the team or a Varsity skier with one year on the team. (usually 9th grade & up)
Duluth East now charters 3 busses - that's how popular this trip is! We graciously jump on, with other skiers from other schools like: DE, Ely, Two Harbors, Grand Rapids, Bemidji, Brainerd, Duluth Denfeld, etc.
Last year's trip cost was: $605.00. The team booster club gives out $100.00 scholarships to each skier who attends the WY ski trip. This fee covers everything but 3 meals.
This trip fills up SUPER fast. First come basis. If you are interested, and / or have questions, call Coach or talk to the captains who have attended: Josh, Anna, Emma, Lynnette.
