“Fast Rabbits Thursday 3″, 8 January 2015 [Change of Venue and Indoors!]

Hello Jackrabbit Managers,

Tomorrow’s (2015-01-08) scheduled session of “Fast Rabbits Thursday 3″ will indeed run:

  • Just not at Windsor Park Nordic Centre.
  • Nor will it be outdoors.

Latest weather forecast sees Mother Nature giving us a -21 degree Celsius air temperature with a -33 degree windchill at what would be skiing time (https://spotwx.com/products/grib_index.php?model=meteocode&zone=r1.15&tz=-6&title=FPWG11&lat=49.89975&lon=-97.13749).

So, the revised plan is that Coach Ihor’s older kids group and Coach Rob’s not quite as old kids group will meet at 18:30 inside (not outside!) the likely-to-be-deserted Assiniboine Park Duck Pond Shelter ready to:

  • Exercise indoors (need long pants and top that can be removed when kids get warm).
  • Stretch indoors (need to put long pants and top back on).
  • Ski wax each kid’s skis (Coach Ihor supplies everything except skis).

Besides leading the exercising and stretching session, Coach Ihor indicates:  “We are going to wax like crazy.  It will be the best waxing sticker that has ever been generated.   No fewer than 3 irons will be running, I hope we don’t pop a breaker! We will even do a klister ski!”.

Session to be finished about 19:45.

    What if we have waxless skis?

    Thanks,

    • A classic technique cross country ski has two wax zones: A grip wax zone (wax-of-the-day) underneath the foot; and a glide wax zone in front of the foot to the tip of the ski, and another glide wax zone behind the foot to the tail of the ski. We will be waxing both zones on “waxable” skis. On “waxless” skis we will be waxing just the glide wax zone. So, bring your “waxless” skis!
