BBSEF Home Teams Event January 17th

All BBSEF Home Team Members:
This Saturday, January 17th, is our first event.  ALL of our Saturday and ALL of our Sunday teams are included in this Saturday’s events!  Which means on Saturday, all of the Saturday and Sunday teams will come up to compete and ski with coaches. Then on Sunday we will have training as usual for our Sunday groups.  (Our next event will be on a Sunday, February 8th, and all of the Saturday teams will be included in the Sunday event and Saturday teams will ski both days that weekend). 

We start earlier on event days (9:15) and it is very important you are on time! We will meet at 9:15 at the flags outside the Jason Harper training center (across from the upper lodge). The coaches will leave the training center and head to the course on the front side. We have a full schedule and once the teams leave for the events with their coaches, we won’t have anyone available to shuttle late arrivals. Please be on time, if you are late your child may miss their opportunity to inspect the course with their coach.
BBSEF Mitey Mite and Devo Teams:
This Saturday, January 17th: BBSEF will have a two run Giant Slalom (GS) race on the ridge (where we trained last weekend). All of our Mitey Mite and Devo Team members (Saturday and Sunday) are automatically entered in our Coaches Cup GS race.  Race lists will be emailed tomorrow.  ALL of our Saturday and ALL of our Sunday teams are included in this Saturday’s events!  We will have awards for 1st-5th place and participant ribbons for each of our participants.

BBSEF Home Teams starting weekend Dec 20th & 21st

Mitey Mite, Devo and Team Shred Home,

All programs are scheduled to start this weekend (December 20th and 21st), but mother nature is not providing enough snow yet. We are crossing our fingers that Bogus Basin opens this weekend with some limited skiing areas.  The mountain is working very hard and striving to have some of the front side open for skiing during Christmas break.

However, if Bogus does NOT open we will have dryland training both Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 am-11:30 am at Camel’s Back Park.

If Bogus does open we will be on snow as scheduled, including those planning on the additional Christmas camp days.  Because of limited terrain we are not sure if there will be access to the Jason Harper Training Center.  Once we get additional information from Bogus, another email with details will follow.  The morning session will go from 9:30 am until 12:00 pm. Lunch from 12:00 pm  to 1:00 pm and the afternoon session will be 1:00 pm  to 3:30 pm.

Christmas Camp – I know some of you have been waiting to see if Bogus is open to sign up for Christmas camp.  We need to plan for Christmas Camp and schedule coaches so if you would like to participate please complete and return the attached form by noon on Friday, December 19th.  If the mountain is not open we will not have camp.

 

Please STEP UP THE SNOW DANCES!

How the Ski Swap Works:

Simply bring your used equipment down to Idaho Expo and check it in. If it sells during the Swap, BBSEF will take a 25% commission and mail you a check for the remaining 75%. It’s that easy and it sure beats letting old equipment collect dust in the garage.

You may check in your equipment at Idaho Expo on:

  • Thursday, Oct. 30th , Noon—9:00 pm
  • Friday, Oct 31st , 11:00 am—9:00 pm
  • Saturday, Nov. 1st , 10:00 am—1:00 pm

Picking Up & Getting Paid:
Unsold equipment must be picked up on Sunday, Nov. 2nd  from 3:00 – 5:00 pm. We cannot keep equipment after 5:00 pm on Sunday. Do not assume your item has sold if you can’t find your item.  Check with a BBSEF representative at equipment checkout. BBSEF is not responsible for equipment left at Idaho Expo after 5pm on Sunday. 

For those who sold equipment, BBSEF will mail a check to your address by December 1st (just in time for Christmas shopping).

Sellers check online to see if your items have sold! http://www.dirvonas.com/swapweb/public

Sellers must pick up unsold equipment by 5 pm on Sunday, November 2nd at Expo Idaho 5610 Glenwood at the Fairgrounds in Boise.
