Start of the Season and August 18-23

Time Trials will be at the High School Track Monday Night.  Start showing up around 7:30pm.  Plan on doing this for your Family Night and bring the whole family.  We will introduce the coaches, captains, and team, have a parent meeting while the kids are warming up, and the races will be run under the lights.  The parent meeting will be at about 8:00pm.  Everyone bring a treat to share for after the race (fruit and healthier treats are also good to bring).
Parents, we also have new parent shirts with our new logo that you can purchase for $10.  We still have a few Stampede shirts left that we will be selling for $6 after that.  We will have the shirts at the Time Trials.  You can purchase them there with cash or check while supplies last.  
If you are interested in a parent sweatshirt for this year they can be viewed on the mock up with the shirt HERE.  We will be taking orders for those this week if you would like to purchase one.

Spike Night at RUN GR8 will be on the Wednesday the 20th, the night before our first meet.  If you are new or need new spikes this would be a great time to get spikes for the season.  There will be discounts on trainers as well.

Thanks to Jorgensens for hosting our end of summer BBQ on Saturday!

Athletes need to finish eligibility so they can race at Highland on Thursday, so get it in all together ASAP if you haven't yet.  After you pay for your uniform you need to get Coach Barnes your size.   Check out the last post for more info.  YOU CANNOT COMPETE UNTIL EVERYTHING IS TURNED IN!

Last Week of Summer Practice August 11-16

First of all BIG THANKS to all the parents who helped with the Stampede on Saturday!  That might have bean the best parent support we have ever had.   You were awesome!  Good job to the athletes that went out and got good prizes for the race and for all those who helped out.  The race went smoothly and everyone seemed to have a good time.  Thanks to our SBOs and LDS Missionaries for their help too.  Results are up on the Stampede Page.

Eligibility is due Friday.  Check out the Eligibility Page for instructions and please get it done.  Don't forget the team Disclosure HERE.

Spirit Packs are ready to order.  HERE is the mock up to give you a little idea.  More info is on the Eligibility Page.  These need to be paid for in the main office.  They are $150 and additional items are extra.  Sizes need to be given to Coach Barnes with your receipt.  The gear is way nice this year, even better than past years and the best swag to date.  We would like everyone to have a spirit pack and you will want one too.  We will not order extra or do additional orders.

Uniforms need to be paid for in the main office as well.  They are $45 this year and sizes need to be given to Coach Barnes with your receipt. Use the office pay form on the Eligibility Page when you go into the office if you can.

If you have gotten a sponsor and have turned the money into the main office then you can talk to Coach Barnes about using it toward Fees, Spirit Pack, Uniforms, etc..  You can still get sponsors at anytime, but we cannot reimburse you for any past purchases after the fact.

Team BBQ this weekend at Jorgensens. If you did not sign up to bring something then bring $2.

Spike Night at RUN GR8 will be on the 20th the night before the first meet.  If you are new or need new spikes this would be a great time to get spikes for the season.

Stampede Details

We are still in need of a few parents to help out at the race, if you are available we can use you somewhere.  

Last push for prizes today!  Also tell your friends, family, and acquaintances to come run.

All athletes need to be at the race to run and help tomorrow.  If you have gotten your 5 prizes and/or 5 people to run you will be given a race shirt and entered into the drawing.  If you haven't then you will need to pay for the race like everyone else in order to get a shirt and be in the drawing.  We have a list of who needs to do what, but you all know where you stand anyway.  Everyone needs to run the race regardless of whether you got your stuff done or paid.  Athletes HAVE to get a number to run, so make sure you get one at Run Gr8 today from 4:00pm-7:00pm or first thing in the morning at packet pickup.

Athletes should be at the school by 6:00am to help set up registration and anything else that needs to get done.

Stampede and August 4-9

Parents, please look at the Eligibility Page on the blog.  Things have changed a bit and everything will be coming due starting next week.  Uniforms and Spirit Packs need to be paid for and sizes need to be given to Coach Barnes ASAP.

We need to get out this week and ask businesses for prizes, sponsors, and if we can advertise our race with them.  Not too many have been out yet, but those that have have done quite a bit.  We need to hit every business in the area.  Everyone should be involved and help with this race if you are going to be on this team!  We will meet in groups on Monday and cover the area and more.  Plan on helping with this sometime Monday late morning if you can.  We also need to follow up with those who have asked you to come back and not keep going to the same places over and over. 
Sponsor Logos for those giving $200 or more in money or prizes need to be in by Monday.  Email those to Coach Barnes or Coach McKissick.
Everyone is supposed to get 5 prizes and try to bring 5 people to the race.  The boy and girl who get the largest amount of prizes will get a free pair of spikes.

Get out with the team, advertise, and get prizes!

We need some parents who are not running on Saturday to volunteer to help us out with the race. We will need help with registration, water stops, the chute and the finish line, breakfast, and prizes and awards after.  If you are willing to help us out please let Coach Barnes or Coach Haag know ASAP.  Thanks!

Stampede Forms are HERE.  Athletes do not need to register, but need to plan on running and bringing people to run.  You will be registered and will get a shirt and be put in the drawing for prizes when you get at least 5 prizes for the race turned in.  Fundraising forms are on the fundraising page.

Those going to Aggie Camp tomorrow need to get your own ride or carpool with teammates.  Some have requested that you meet for rides at Monarch Meadows tomorrow at 11:00am.
The rest of the team will have practice daily.

Those who would still like to go to Aggie Camp can still come.  If you have just decided to go or haven't sent your money in yet, just bring it with your permission slip to Utah State tomorrow. HERE is the info for Aggie Camp.   We have enough going from the team to get the discounted price.

You only have 1 and 1/2 weeks to get prizes for the Mustang Stampede on August 9th.  We would like everyone to bring people to the race and get at least 5 prizes we can give away in the drawing.  If you have a sponsor of at least $200 that wants their name or logo on the back of the race shirt you only have 1 week.  Talk to Coach McKissick about the fundraising if you have questions.  As you get your prizes give them to Coach McKissick. 

Stampede Forms are HERE.  Athletes do not need to register, but need to plan on running and bringing people to run.  You will be registered and will get a shirt and be put in the drawing for prizes when you get at least 5 prizes for the race turned in.

Check out the last post and give your opinion.

Aggie Camp is next week on July 28-30 or 31.  This is a great camp that Coach Barnes, and Coach Line from Bear River, put on with Utah State University.  Camps are a great experience and a lot of fun.  They give you a chance to learn skills to be better and be able to bond with your teammates and other runners from other schools.  HERE is the info for Aggie Camp.  We strongly encourage everyone to try to go to a camp this summer!   We have enough going from the team to get the discounted price.

I have reattached a google calendar at the bottom of the blog.  I have had a recent request to have this option by a parent of an athlete on the team.  However, I have some reservations about a google calendar because it is extra work to put events on it as well as the posts and pages.  I also want everyone paying attention to the the posts and pages on a regular basis not just the schedule of when and where practices are.  If you or your parents would like me to have a calendar as well I will be willing to accommodate this request.  If not many of you really care then I will leave this option off, because it is an extra thing to worry about.   If you would like to have the calendar on the blog then leave a comment on this post and I will base it off of your responses.
