Ok Folks this is a vey busy time of year lots to think about and act on. Below you will find information on race sign up, 

you must accomplish all of this this. 

Race Organization

There is a simple 3-step process for you to do.  Do everything on this list within the next 5 days.  EASY!  

Yes, this weekend you HAVE TO DO THIS!

Step 1 - Three Important Forms: (Note - Keep them handy for your reference)

  1. CHELSEA NORDIQ - RACE PROGRAM GUIDELINES - 2017 - 2018 (Attachment 1; also on Google Docs) 
  2. Code of Conduct (Every athlete and at least one parent MUST sign this document before October 3rd on Google Docs
  3. Acknowledgement of Responsibility Form - Every athlete and at least one parent MUST sign this document before October 3rd on Google Forms

Step 2 - Race Calendar and Commitment:

  1. You must sign up by October 3rd to indicate which races you are committing to.  Find the race calendar here 

Step 3 - Post-Dated Cheque Requirements:

You must pay via post-dated cheques by October 3rd.  Details in the Race Program Guideline which explain what dates to put on the 

post-dated cheques.

Submit checks on or before Tuesday, October 3rd by giving them to either Carolyn (Casey and SIenna's mum) or Corry (Lucie's mum).

Uniform sizing is going to be Oct 5th at the Relais Plien Air you will be able to try on and order your 

clothing online.

Rossignol Club night is Oct 5th at the Relais Plien Air. You will be able to come out and try out new

 equipment. You will be able to purchase equipment at 25% off of retail pricing. You will have 1 week to 

purchase after this date. 

I know that a lot of people wait for the ski swap to purchase equipment. If you are looking for a quality pair

of skis that fit you the ski swap is a tricky place to do this. 

If you purchase new then you get the right size, weight and you will be able to sell the skis/gear for 50% 

of what you purchased it for. In the end it equals about the same price as the ski swap and you get quality

gear that fits. 

Ski Testing

For those that need to have skis tested for flex pattern and pocket. I am offering a one time ski pick up, 

Sunday Oct 1st and Tuesday Oct 3rd to bring skis to Wayne Johansen to get them tested in Wakefield. 

A proper pair of skis is the best thing that you can do for your self and your athlete. 

In order to have them tested you will need to have your name and weight on your skis, and $10 per pair 

of skis . Your skis need to be clean no kick wax or glide wax. 

These skis will be returned to you on Thursday Oct 5th so that you can make good decisions on ski 

purchasing of this year.  You can also bring your skis to Wayne your self. 

Here are the links to the different training plans. We will be discussing these in 

practice over the next week.
