It's been a busy week...

At the end of my previous entry, the girls were headed to Okemo for 3 FIS Devo races - 1 GS and 2 SL's.  For some of the girls, it was their first chance to break into the higher level FIS races.  For the U18 athletes, it was their first set of qualifiers for U18 Nationals with the SL's counting as qualifiers.  The first race was the GS followed by the 2 SL's.

After the Eastern Cup's, we took a large group down to Killington for a VT Cup GS.  This may have been the longest race I have ever been to...we didn't load the van to drive home until 4:40pm!  They started late, had some timing issues, a power outage, and then took their time getting awards out.  The awards however, were sweet, literally.  They handed out Slopeside Syrup to the top 3 in each age group, sending up home with plenty of syrup...
