Cross week of Nov 2

Parents: What a great day for GR Christian at Allendale!  Both teams win their regional and advance to the state finals Saturday at Michigan International Speedway. Although the rain and soft course slowed the times, we still ran great. As we tell the kids ” place is more important than time.” Here are details for this coming week. Our state team and alternates will practice all week like normal. Anyone else on the team may also run but it is not mandatory. Anyone in our top 12 in either yesterday’s meet or the conference final should plan on practicing. For the final, everyone on the team should plan on attending and cheering on those 7 who will represent our team and school. Here are details for Saturday: Bus for state team, alternates, and coaches – 8:15 AMBus for JV runners – 9:15 AMGirls run at 1:30 PMBoys run at 2:30 PM If you plan on watching the final, plan on at least 30 minutes to walk into the stadium from your car. Tickets are $7.00 per person. If any of you parents wish to ride the 9:15 bus, I’d appreciate it. It’s good to get an adult presence plus you will get into the meet free. Please let me know if you can ride this bus. A couple reminder notes:- Uniform and sweats must be turned in either Tuesday or Wednesday, November 10 or 11 from 2:45 – 3:15. Please wash, empty pockets, and remove safety pins.  Please make this a priority. Each year I have to chase uniforms down. – Team banquet is Thursday, November 19 from 7-9 in the all city gym. Pizza, drinks, and place settings provided. Please bring a dessert or salad to share.  Thanks for your support! We really appreciate all the fans we get, even on nasty weather days like Saturday. We also really appreciate your prayers for the team and coaches.  Hope to see you Saturday at MIS!!  Doug
