This past weekend the snowboard team was very very busy. A group of 4 went up to Vermont Friday night and stayed with Coach Mike’s friend Becca (thanks!). They came bearing gifts in the form of a Brita pitcher. It was quite an adventure to get that Brita too. They had to sneak in the exit of the supermarket because apparently in Vermont everything closes at 9pm on a Friday night. Then they went to Okemo Saturday morning. Katie and Lester got their bibs and got stoked to compete in slopestyle. The course was SO well groomed and everything was marked with snow paint and flags. They took some practice runs and then trained until their runs. They arrived on the scene expecting practice runs. Unfortunately, the organizers decided to wipe the practice time and just have the riders throw down. Katie and Lester got a little nervous. However, they rocked it and in the end, they received medals. Then they drove home to Boston.
Sunday, everyone got up early in the morning and hopped on the bus. This week, unlike all the others before, the bus wasn’t filled to capacity (Gasp!). Its possible that everyone is gearing up for President’s Day. But, all in all, it was a good day.
Let us know if you can't come to Sunday's trip to Okemo by 6pm Saturday night.
Bus leaving at these times (i.e. arrive before this time): 5:15am Warren, 5:30am West, 5:45am Harvard Ave.
