Uniform Order Update

Hi Parents,

Uniforms have been ordered. Bills are going to the accounting department today and checks will be cashed within a week. If you gave me a check for your uniform, you will be getting a receipt when the check is cashed. If you asked to put the charge on your account, the office will charge your card on file or send you an invoice hopefully within a week.

If you applied for a scholarship and purchased a uniform, the cost of the race, suit, warm up jacket, and pant (if ordered) was included in your total program fee on the scholarship form. No equipment or other gear items could be included. You will still receive a bill for the uniform even if it was included in your scholarship packet, but your award will reflect the uniform cost.

Here is an example scholarship scenario:

Aspen Devo Team Program Fee: $975
Uniform cost: $320 if you purchased the whole package (silver race suit, warm up jacket, warm up pant)
Total on scholarship form: $1295
Scholarship award: $600 to put towards your program fees and uniform bill which are issued separately

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions. I did order some extra uniforms, so if you were behind on ordering a uniform check with me to see if I have your size.  Race suits should be here by late November.

There will be another suit and jacket order happening on November 28th when the Base Camp order forms are due. Anything ordered at the November 28th date will not be here until January.

 

Best,

Maria

 

 

Fit Night Drawing Winners:

Congratulations to Alexander Crete and Kawak Miranda!

Alexander (Base Camp) and Kawak’s (Devo Team) families registered new AVSC Nordic participants at our Ski Swap and fit night on Sept 22nd.  Alexander won a 2014-2015 Base Camp jacket and Kawak is the proud owner of the whole AVSC Team kit.  Thanks to everyone who participated.  We are looking forward to an outstanding winter.

Rentals, Uniforms, and Gear for Nordic

Hi Parents,

I hope you all were able to attend the Fit night last night and are set for gear!  If you still have any needs, you can bring an order form to Ute Mountaineer before Sept 30th to take advantage of the outstanding prices they provide to us.  Make sure you ask for Paul and be kind to whoever you speak with….the Ute’s Nordic staff will not be around until closer to winter.

Thank you to those of you who participated in the Ski Swap.  There were some awesome deals this year.  We were able to set up many new families and young kids on gear for very affordable prices.  In order for this to work, we need everyone to bring their out grown gear back to the swap every year!  You can use your swap money to update your fleet.

We had uniforms for kids to try on at Fit Night.  I have the samples at the clubhouse until Friday.  Come in and try things on if you are worried about sizing.

Best,

Maria
