A very important announcement from our Booster Club:

The CRHS Nordic Ski Team: 2022-2023 Fundraising
The 2022-23 CRHS Nordic Ski season is almost here! Each year, the CRHS Nordic Ski
Booster Club supports the CRHS Nordic Ski team in a variety of ways.
Examples include:
Providing equipment for new skiers
Providing ski wax and waxing equipment
Providing snacks and meals and select meets and winter camp
Trail passes for practices or winter camp
Lodging for select meets

The booster club needs skiers to fundraise in order to achieve the items listed above,
we can’t do it without parent support.

This year we are asking the skiers to participate in THREE fundraisers:
1. door-to-door fundraising (more details below),
2. bagging groceries at Cub Foods and
3. selling Heggie’s pizzas

More details to be provided on #2 and #3 at the parent meeting on November 14, 2022

1. First up! Nordic Afternoon Fundraiser:

Fundraising is really important! The Boosters use the fundraised money to buy equipment (wax, skis, poles, etc. trying to make sure first year skiers have skis to use), hotel rooms for ski camp, etc.
