Need to get the word out on this. Contact me if you have questions. Starting Tuesday 29 August. Think of places where we can put the poster.
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.
Erika was interviewed by The Union yesterday and they published the story behind the Triathlon late this evening.
For those of you who have not yet signed up to compete or volunteer – get moving.
If you want to train with the team over the summer this is the ideal way to get your sports clearance out of the way for next year. All proceeds go to the Athletic Department.
I have done some updates on the original video post. As the weather gets warmer there is lots of video to watch before next season.
2017 registration Form for the Great Ski Race. I will be driving up Friday afternoon or Saturday morning to pick up the bibs, so am happy to take completed entries with me. Make sure you specify T-shirt size and have the correct entry fee attached.
The final results from Friday have been posted. Note that the first 6 places are determined by the finish order in the final heat and all the other places are based on the time in the qualification time trial. The results also contain the Team Scores.
The season standings now have two races in them and are also posted. At present they are set up to be best 4 out of 5 races. As it is unlikely that we will have five league races this season the scoring series will be adjusted later. Also, the points per place is currently set to start at 100 points for first place and then decreasing by one for each place further back. This is done for my convenience and will also be adjusted later in the season. As we only have 50+ athletes in each gender this high number of points gives too much weight to just showing up. We will eventually change it to be equal to the maximum number of athletes in any of our races. Talk to me if you have questions about this.
Decker and Junet wore my GoPro during their qualification time trial runs on Friday. I have posted the two videos on youtube.
The 2016-17 World Cup Cross Country Skiing season is well under way. Many of the videos are appearing on youtube courtesy of “Skiing Vinnie” who uploads them. I will try and keep this index post updated as the season goes on.
