How    We will be taking Team vans:  Vans will leave Lake Creek at 8:30am on Sat the 27th and from the Roberta McKercher RV pullout in Hailey at 9:00am.  We will drop off Sunday the 28th @ Roberta McKercher at 5:00 and Lake Creek at 5:30.  Please be on time or early for departures, it is never fun to have one kid holding up the whole group, and we have been known to leave without people…

* Skiers must have all SVSEF registration forms turned in to be able to travel with the team including a current USSA membership, forms can be downloaded from*

-A question has come up about whether or not parents are needed at Bruneau…-     

We see it as ….

As much as we appreciate and love parent involvement in SVSEF and on the cross country team; having parents along when we got to Bruneau can take away from some of the major goals we have for this trip like; coach-skier bonding, and general team bonding.  We have found kids are more willing to be part of the group when their parents are not there and we really feel this is a key part of the Bruneau experience.  
Thank you in advance for your help in this department.
