DASH News Aug 29 – Saturday High School Meet + National Meet

Hello DASH Homeschool families,

The next high school meet is this Saturday at Minooka Park in Waukesha. Map The parking is tough at this meet. You have to enter the park off of E. Sunset Dr. The entrance fee is $5.00 per car. There is some parking outside the park off Sunset. You would have to walk in then, but it is free.  If you have any questions, I will try to help. We have run this meet before, and we will meet under the trees south of the start like last year. The girls race is at 9:45, boys at 10:30.  Please arrive by 9:00 to scout the course.

Maura Heiss has Boston Store coupons for anyone interested. You sell them for $5. Inside they have a $10 off coupon, plus other coupons good only on November 13th. We recommend at least $2 of the $5 go to the DASH team to help meet our expenses. It is not too hard to sell a few. My kids went around the neighborhood and sold 15 in one day. That’s $75, just enough for my DASH donation. People like to buy them; it is a good deal.

In trying to see if I could use Google to find the DASH Blog, I came across the The National Christian HomeSchool Cross County Championships in Springfield, MO on October 30th, http://www.homeschoolnationals.com/cross-country. Our high school season ends earlier than the other teams we race because we do not have a conference meet at the end of the season. This may be just what I was looking for. Of course, trying to get people there and back is a hurdle, but I may pursue it if there is enough interest. This is for high school and middle school. We would be very competitive by looking at last year’s results. My wife wants to go because it is near Branson. End of the year vacation, anyone? If not this year, then some year.

I am having practices on Tuesday and Thursday this week at Greenfield Park, 6:15 PM. At my practices, the dedicated athletes have really been running fast. We would love for you to join us. Parents are always encouraged to bring their running shoes, although the barefoot running craze has some parents and kids running without. So if you forget your running shoes, you can still run! Maybe I should just say bring your running clothes.

I have a new Email Subscription widget on the DASH Blog. You can sign up and get all of the posts on the blog. I do send the posts out in email already, so use it if you wish.

Pam Lawrence has been very sick this last week, so no Racine practices until further notice. Keep Pam in your prayers.

Take care,
Jim Caspers
