Important XC dates

Posted: August 19, 2018 in Uncategorized

Runners & Superfans,

The next two weeks are going to be very busy for the cross country team and we will need some awesome parent help to get both of these events completed successfully.

AUGUST 24th – Cross Country night at the football concession stand.  We will need around 10 parents and students to help man the concession stand at the home football game on Friday August 24th.  All the work is super easy and there will be booster club officers there to help us get started.  Parents will need to be at the concession stand by 5:30 p.m. and will need to bring a baseball cap or wear a hair net.  Please let me know if you are willing to help.  duanef@straffordschools.net

The booster club has been very supportive and generous with the cross country team and we need to show them our appreciation by helping staff the concession stand.

AUGUST 30th – Parents meeting and dinner at Fellows Lake pavilion 6 p.m.   You and your family are invited to Fellows Lake on August 30th for pasta, fellowship, and prepping for the home invitational meet on Saturday September 1st.  We are looking for some amazing parents to help volunteer at our meet on Saturday and we will be signing up for the different jobs at this dinner.  All of the jobs at the meet are super easy and super fun and some of them put you right in the middle of the action.  We will need help with registration, parking, course direction, and finish line.  Strafford is known for hosting an amazing meet and that’s due to all the amazing parents who help.  Hope to see you on August 30th. (Yes, I’m bribing you with food to get you to volunteer.  The good spots go early)

September 1st – Fellows Lake 5000 cross country invitational.  Runners will need to be at Fellows Lake by 7 a.m. along with parent volunteers.  All runners will need to check in with Coach Brown to get prepared for the meet.  Parent volunteers will need to check in at the pavilion to receive instructions and head to their posts.  We will have around 20-25 schools in attendance and need a great staff of volunteers to help pull this off.

Thanks for all you do as parents and for supporting your kids in their running.  Please let me know if you have any questions and I hope to see all of you at these events.

Thanks

Duane Fabro
