Weekly Update - 9/15/2019

Congrats to those who competed at the Bozeman Invite yesterday. The delay was both good and bad, but at least the temps dropped a little for our races. Both teams (boys and girls) placed first in the field of 12 teams. Great job! It was quite the sight to see such a big team of great kids at the start line. Each person on the team is important to the whole group and everyone runs better with more teammates around them.

Please register by Thursday at 8:00 pm. If you can do it earlier, it helps a lot to keep from last minute juggling. Remember, when filling out the form you must finish checking out by clicking the shopping cart and completing the transaction. If you don’t have an email confirmation, your registration wasn’t finished and I won’t get it! If you have any issues, please contact me at chad@bozemantrackclub.org.

Mountain West Classic on 9/28/2019

The MW Classic is perhaps the largest meet we compete at. It draws teams from all over, therefore registration is due earlier than normal. Registration needs to be done by Tuesday, September 24th at 10:00 pm. Late registrations are not allowed.

Volunteer Signup

The Signup Genius for volunteering will be sent out each week. With parents willing to step in, the coaches can coach without logistics interruptions. There are still open spots to help at Dillon, so please take a moment to sign up!

Parent Page

Don’t forget to stop by the parent page. There is a lot of great info available there!
