Hard to believe that it’s already time to start looking forward to Snow Day. I will be sending along the official snow day schedule in the next couple of days, which is particularly important for those of you at Cranmore as there are so many schools and kids to accommodate. In the meantime please start preparing your Snow Day List of students, of all the lists this is probably the most important for the kids. I’ve attached an example or template for you to follow; the information I need includes Last & First Name, School, Grade, Gender, Discipline (A=alpine, S=snowboard, X=Nordic), Color, and Location.
The color is the color in which students started the season. The exception is if you have any blue alpine who move to purple, they can race with purple.
Location is mainly for the schools at King Pine, typically your young yellows and even whites stay at King Pine for the day, so if you can just specify who is going where that is helpful. All purple alpine go to Cranmore and all Nordic go to Whitaker Woods; more details will be in the schedules I send.
I have to assign unique bib numbers for all the students, which means it’s really important that I have accurate information in the format requested.
Volunteer Awards: Each year I ask for nominations for our volunteer awards; the two awards are the Phoebe Lowe for the most outstanding volunteer and the Zaven Vorperian Award for the most dedicated to working with beginners. Please send me nominations – include more than just their name so the junior program committee can make a selection based on your nomination. Awards are presented at Volunteer Appreciation Night, which will take place on Thursday, March 20th at the Red Parka Pub, usually starting around 6:30pm. (In the past this event was the Tuesday after Snow Day but it conflicted with a school concert so note the new date)
For now that is it, hope you have a good day, stay warm.
