Cross Week of 10-11

    It was a great day in Portage, highlighted by both the varsity & JV boys winning!
    Our meet next Saturday is back at Gainey. As it is another large invite, we have the need of lots of help to pull this off. Many of you signed up to help at this meet at the parents meeting back in late August. If you are one, we are planning on you. If you don’t recall, just email back and I’ll let you know. Helpers please arrive by 7:30 and proceed to the concession area for your job. Thanks!!!
    ADMISSION FEES – This year’s Kent-Ottawa Invitational will be using the GoFan app for ticket sales and redemption. There will be no cash/paper ticket sales at school or at the gate.  However, as long as tickets are available you can purchase them up until race time. 

For some instructions on how to operate GoFan, you can check out these two videos.  

Tickets for the Kent-Ottawa invitational tickets are $5 each, and GoFan charges an additional service charge of $1 so they will be $6.00 each.  

Here’s the link to purchase tickets for the Kent-Ottawa Invitational.  Or if you have the app, you can search Grand Rapids Christian and purchase the tickets there.

    There is no bus transportation to this meet. Please have your child arrive 90 minutes before their race and go directly to our tent for their bib number and timing chip. Here are race times:
Girls varsity ( 10 ) @ 10:30
Boys varsity ( 10 ) @ 11:00
Girls JV @ 11:30
Boys JV @ 12:10
Awards @ 12:45
    A couple more notes -1)  Remember, our final league jamboree on October 20, has been moved to South Christian. 2) Our practice schedule during the school break October 21 and 22 will be the same time, 3:00PM. But, because our school hosts the convention, we will be meeting and running from Gainey. We will have no team organized practice on Saturday, October 23, but the kids will be giving the schedule run for them to complete. 
As always, we thank you for your great support, and of course your prayers! Hope to see you at the races!
