    Bump.

    We have 3 potential people interested who are not posters for the last spot for Monday's Pats team.

    I still would like an active member to join our team. Then we can start working on a 2nd team. Scott, Ga2ski,Charlie, Roark, Treeskier and myself are again coming back for the Monday night avtivities. Chile has moved on, but I think he will make a visit or two.

    Monday night is the slowest night. The least amount of racing suits and most relaxed attitude. We usaually meet between 5 and 5.30 grab a few runs till about 6.15 and sign up. Kind of a Chinese fire drill, but not that bad.

    Then we grab a few more runs and check the coarse out. We get our two runs in fairly quick and some grab a couple more runs. We usually have 1 or 2 people that grab a table at the lounge.



    About 9ish the race results are posted. All the runs are video taped and played on the TV in the Lounge. That may be the most enjoyable part. Especially if you beat Treeskier on you run or if you have a nice view of yourself getting draggged out of the Woods.

    The whole race coarse is set up quite easy so any intermediate skier can navigate it easily. We usually are all home in Bed by 11 and I live an hour away from Pats. So it does not kill you come Tuesday. Actually feels like a 3 day weekend all winter.

    Thaller1, Whaller and Terry have got a team going at Shawnee peak. Props to T and her company for getting that going. If you don't want to race at least come out and watch us and join us for a laugh and a lie in the lounge afterwords. Beats riding the exercise bike.

    If all goes well with my mother-in-law watching my son on Mondays and Tuesdays (trying to save two days a week at day care) then my wive will be racing unless we find someone else. We will confirm in after a few weeks of spending one night a week with my mother-in-law.

    The space is taken. Mrs took pictures and came out and supported us.
    A female member is a good idea for ballance. and she deserves props for putting up with you.

    Lets start on the 2nd team. Ga2ski ask your co-worker again if you please. Roark you had made mention of a co-worker as well.

    Nice work Ga2ski.

    Any others have interest.

    Well she isn't a definite yet, but more like a probable. Like I said it is contigent on me being able to survive Monday night each with my mother-in-law.

    I will check with my co-worker to see if he is still interested.

    I'm interested but have a couple questions. About how much does it cost? What is included in the cost? Do you get some practice runs and/or freeskiing in? What time do you need to show up by? I'll be graduating in December and I have no idea where I'll be working by the time race season comes around, therefore I don't know what time I'll be able to get out of work and how far the drive will be, if I even find a job by then.

    I can only comment on Pats. Race starts at 7. Coarse gets set around 6.15. You can ski from 3pm on. Lifts close at 9pm. Runs 9 weeks straight from 1st week in Jan, but I bet we start on the 8th cause we race on Monday's and the 1st Monday in Jan is is New years day.

    All that is not settled until captains meeting on Dec.
    Cost it was $650 per team last year. We all paid around $110 and got shirts with the left over money. Won't be much different this year. I will again pay the fee in advance for the 1st Pats team. I was paid back quite quickly last year. Getting on a team in Dec might be a bit harder, but not impossible. They usaually have room for folks to join in other teams. Pats does help with placement. Pats program has races mon-Thurs. Monday being the most Mellow thurs being the most busy and many good teams.
