Cross week 8-19

Thanks for coming out to our scrimmage yesterday at Gainey. We now have our first “real” meet at Benzie High School on Saturday. Here are details for that day:
 – Bus leaves from high school at 6:15AM
– Bus stops at Post Dr exit on 131 to pick up north side kids
– Girls varsity race at 10:15
– Boys varsity race at 10:45
– Girls JV race at 11:15
– Boys JV race at 12:00
– Awards at 12:45
– Bus leaves for beach at Frankfort approx. 1:45.
– Bus leaves for home at 5:30
– Bus arrives back at school approx 8:30 – ( We will drop off at Post Drive too.) 
Because we go to Frankfort for a few hours, be sure to pack money for lunch, a swim suit and towel, and a change of cloths. If the weather is rainy, we will alter the schedule. 
As mentioned in the parent meeting yesterday, we can always use help at meets we host. The two biggest are the CFE meet on September 21 and the County Meet on Oct 12. If you’d like to be added to our help list, just let me know. We try very hard to not have you work if your child is racing. 
In addition, our team would love your sponsorship of either or both meets. The cost is $250 to sponsor one meet, or $400 to sponsor both. Our team gets to keep 100% of the money raised through these meets. Please contact me soon to be added. Thanks for considering. 
Our after school practices usually last 3:00 to 5:15. We meet in the AC gym lobby, where kids sign in each day. There are locker rooms right there reserved for cross country only. Please make sure valuables are locked up. 
That’s it for this week. As always, please keep the team and coaches in your prayers. I hope to see you Saturday in Benzie, Doug
