Assiniboine Park Jackrabbits: This Week In Skiing (10-16 March 2014)

Hello Jackrabbit Managers,

Just a reminder that we have added a dozen more sessions to the official 2013-2014 schedule (https://assiniboineparkjackrabbits.wordpress.com/assiniboine-park-jackrabbits-2013-2014-schedule) and that other clubs have also rescheduled their seasons, too. So, for this week of 10-16 March 2014:

  1. Tuesday, 11 March 2014: The annual for-young-kids-only “Dash for Cash” is hosted by Seine River Ski Club at the Windsor Park Nordic Centre. Head-to-head classic sprint of either 50 or 100 metres depending on school grade. “Loser” gets a chocolate loonie. “Winner” gets a metal loonie. Most kids seem to want the chocolate. Register in person between 17:30 and 18:45. Everything is done by 20:00. Must see details at http://www.ccsam.ca/event/seine-river-ski-club-dash-cash before going. Latest weather forecast predicting a -14 degree Celsius air temperature with a -20 windchill at race time.
  2. Wednesday, 12 March 2014: “Wednesday Night Race #13 Skiathlon” sees the first half of the race being skied using the Classic techniques, followed by a transition to Free technique (skate) for the last half of the race (http://www.ccsam.ca/wednesday-night-race-formats) and is hosted by Red River Nordic and Biathlon Club at the Windsor Park Nordic Centre. Must register no later than 21:00 on Tuesday. Latest weather forecast predicting a -4 degree Celsius air temperature with a -12 windchill at race time.
  3. Thursday, 13 February 2014: “Fast Rabbits Thursday 12”. Technique to be announced. Coach Ihor’s group of older or more experienced skiers meet at 18:30 and go longer distances. Coach Rob’s group of younger or newer skiers will meet in the clubhouse fifteen minutes later, at 18:45, and go for shorter distances. We currently have Lauren, Chloe, and Teagan interested. While we haven’t seen much of any of our skiers this winter, Coach Ihor and I think that Laura, Kate, Nika, Kevin, Liam, Hayes, and Don-Han, may want to participate in Coach Rob’s group. If I didn’t mention your skier that is simply because of an oversight on our part. Please reply back to robert.mcmahon@mts.net if you think your child might be interested in skiing on Thursday evenings, and even if they (or you) are not interested. Latest weather forecast predicting a +2 degrees Celsius air temperature (with no windchill!) at ski time.
  4. Sunday, 16 March 2014: “Sunday Session (17)” at Assiniboine Park. Latest forecast predicting -8 degree Celsius air temperature with a -14 windchill.

The weather is now suitable for mere mortals to ski! Come on out!

Thanks,

Coach Rob
