Last Club Meeting, Dotty Clark Race, & Pizza Party

Pizza Party Survey

Parents: Please complete this survey so that we know how much pizza to order for the racers!

Remaining Club Meeting — WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 19

Since the Dotty Clark is this Friday, the last meeting is mandatory. If your racer is unable to attend, please let us know so that we can ensure that your racer receives the meeting information that will be covered. Parents are always welcome to join us! These racers qualified for the Dotty Clark: Rainey, MacKenzie, Kira, James, Easton, Asher, Kampbell, Ian, Bentley, Kade, Weston, Colbi, and Molly.

Everyone Meets at Galileo at 7:30 am

Even if the racer is riding in the parent's vehicle to Bogus Basin, we need the racer to be at Galileo by 7:30 am.

STMS Race Jerseys

Racers must wear their jerseys during the Dotty Clark races. Race Jerseys must be returned at the Pizza Party Banquet.

Numbered Race Bibs

When we take roll at Galileo, we will hand out the race bibs. These bibs indicate each racer's position on their race course for the Dotty Clark. The bibs are safety pinned onto the STMS Race Jersey.

Day Lift Tickets

If the racer is purchasing a discounted lift ticket for the day, it must be purchased at the Simplot Lodge (lower lodge). The ticket office at the Pioneer Lodge will not be open.

Racing Day Rules

  • Racers will race in numerical order based on their bib number. If they miss their spot, they must go to the end of the line. So, pay attention to the time!
  • If the racer goes to Bogus Basin and fails to race, his or her name will be given to the school administration for disciplinary action.
  • If the racer qualified for two events, he or she MUST race in both events. If they do not, they will be disqualified in both events and his or her name will be given to the school administration for disciplinary action.

Pizza Party Banquet

After the Dotty Clark, all ski club members will meet at Idaho Pizza Company (6724 N Glenwood Street, Garden City) for the end-of-the-season pizza party banquet. At the banquet, we will be passing out awards/prizes and eating pizza. We want to celebrate how well the racers have done this season!

Parents and family members are encouraged to attend the banquet to help celebrate the success of the racers and the team. So that we have a banquet room large enough to accommodate everyone, we need to know how many family members will also be attending. NOTE: The club is ordering pizza for your racer. For parents/family attending the party, we suggest that you order your parents/family pizza on Thursday night and indicate that you are with the STMS Ski Club party at 6:00 pm. Doing so provides Idaho Pizza Company plenty of time to prepare and have your pizza ready when you arrive.

Remind App

Calling, sending emails, and sending text messages works great, but it can be slow--especially when we need to warn parents about slick road conditions or cancelled races. So this year, we are adding a new method for communicating with parents and students: the Remind app. Our class code is @starmid.
  1. Click here to download and install the Remind app.
  2. Open the app and from the menu, select Join a class.
  3. For the class code, type starmid and click Join.

Welcome to the new website!

We are looking forward to a new snow year, and are organizing the team much earlier than last year. Take a look around our new website to find answers to most of your questions. Because the race program has earlier registration deadlines this year, be sure to visit these two pages right away: If you have questions, just let us know!

Thanks,
Eddie, Kieron, & Brigette
