New Doodle Poll for On-Campus Events

To coordinate the Fall Training sessions scheduled before school a new Doodle Poll has been set up.   The general pattern is that Nordic Track workouts take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays while Beginner Roller Skiing is on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.   If you plan to attend a session please sign up on Doodle by 10 pm the evening before.  If no one has signed up then there is very likely not going to be a coach!!   When you sign up on Doodle please remember to Save your changes.  It is always a good idea to go back and see if you really did sign up.   In previous years, athletes would swear they had signed up but because they had not saved the changes no one else knew!

All activities require that the athlete be cleared for school sports.  Get your paperwork in to the Student Store.   I generally get an updated list of cleared athletes about once a week, so if it has been less than a week since you got cleared please bring the the pink/purple sheet with you to your first session.  We also need a completed Consent to Treat form for Nordic Skiing.

Sessions start at 7:30 am and are generally done by 8:15 am so you can cool down and get to class.

Murphy’s Law

Most of you already know Murphy’s Law.  If anything can go wrong it will.   Sometimes I feel that this is too optimistic.   I was away all last week and the moment I was 100 miles away both the team web-server and the team mail server lost connection to the Internet.    Despite the best efforts of my neighbor we were unable to get things going till this after noon when I returned.

Sorry for any inconvenience.  I will  work on some more remote access tools so I can fix things without being here.
