Year End Banquet and final race results

What a fantastic winter and racing season!  Thank you to everyone who came out to compete or volunteer as part of our races.

Now, we want to celebrate!  Our year end Ski Banquet is Friday, April 17th, 6pm, at the Denfeld High School Cafeteria.

All skiers, snowboarders & their families are invited to attend our annual ski banquet, featuring spaghetti, bread sticks, tossed salad & desserts. Awards will be given to all racers, regardless of how they placed this season. Cost is $7/each, with children 5 & under free. The family rate is $25 if paid by Friday, April 10, at 5:00 PM. After that, it will be $8/each & $30/family until the Tuesday, April 15, 5:00 PM deadline.  Reservations must be paid for in advance, as we will be charged for the number of people we tell the food service staff are attending.

The registration form to fill out is here.  You can print it out to mail in or drop off in person (at ski returns!) along with a check.

At the banquet, we will recognize every child who raced this year (even if they only raced once), and every child will go home with something!  We also will have trophies for the top three children in each category.  These results were based on the top 4 times from the 6 races, and children must have raced in at least four of the six races to be eligible.

You can find the year end race results for skiers here.  Results for snowboarders are here.  Any racer with a listing of “DSQ” did not meet the four race minimum to be considered for year end awards.  Qualifying racers are then listed in order of finish.  For each race, the winner gets a score of 10, second place 9, etc.  If there are 10 or more racers everyone at 10th place and below gets a 1.  We add  up the top four races for each racer to get a score for the end of the season, with the highest score being the winner.

We hope to see everyone at the year end banquet- with an anti-climactic early end to the season, it will be wonderful to bring our community back together to celebrate.

Thank you,

Thom, Dave, and Sam

Ski Returns 3/30, 3/31, and 4/1

Now that the ski season is over, we have the task of collecting over 850 sets of skis, boots, poles & helmets that were rented.

Here is our collection schedule.

 

Monday, March 30, 5:30-7:30

Last names beginning with A-J

 

Tuesday, March 31, 5:30-7:30

Last name beginning with K-Q

 

Wednesday, April 1, 5:30-7:30

Last names beginning with R-Z

 

Please do the following-

1.  Wipe off all equipment

2.  Buckle ski boots

3.  Put a rubber band around ski poles

 

If you can not come on your assigned night, come on any night.

PLEASE make every effort to bring back your skis during the ski return nights.     It makes a tremendous amount of extra work for the staff to call all the families that do not return their skis on time & set up individual appointments for them.

 

We still need 5 volunteers to help collect skis on Wednesday April 1, from 5:15-7:45.  If you can help us out, please email your name & phone # to:

chesterbowlpark@gmail.com

 

Thanks for supporting your park!

Chester Bowl Mini-Master Plan Meeting 9/30

Chester Park has been going through a Mini-Master Planning process. This plan outlines the types of changes that could be made in the park without going through the full future public approval process.  The final meeting is Tuesday, 9/30, at 6pm at Myers-Wilkins Elementary School (1027 N 8th Ave E).  You can come in person or make comments online.  Please participate in this process so that your voice is heard!  Full details on the plan and the process are at http://www.duluthmn.gov/parks/.
A letter from Parks and Recreation Manager Kathleen Bergen is below:
September 22, 2014

Dear Neighbor of Chester Park,

You are invited to attend a public meeting to review and comment on the final draft of the Mini-Master Plan for Chester Park before it goes to the Parks Commission and City Council.  The proposed Plan, developed by SAS + Associates in coordination with City staff, the Chester Bowl Improvement Club, stakeholder group representatives, and the public, will be presented during the meeting, followed by a question and answer session.

This meeting will be on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 from 6 to 7:30 pm at the Myers- Wilkins Elementary School Media Center. The address is 1027 N 8th Ave E, Duluth, MN 55805.

In addition to sending this letter to Chester Park neighbors, we are issuing our standard press release to invite the general public to attend. We want to hear your comments and feedback. The draft Plan is available for review at the Parks and Recreation website: http://www.duluthmn.gov/parks/

If you are unable to attend the public meeting or would prefer to send written comments, the comment form on our website will be available through Friday, October 3, 2014.

Other Important Dates: After revising the draft Plan based on comments shared online and at the final public meeting on September 30, our goal is to present the Chester Park Mini-Master Plan to the Parks Commission on Wednesday, October 8 at 5 pm at the Central Hillside Center (12 E 4th St). If the Plan is approved at that meeting, the final step will be to present the Plan to the City Council on October 13.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Kathleen Bergen

Manager, Parks and Recreation
