Tonight was our mandatory Safety Meeting. It was great to see everyone out tonight – ok, almost everyone. Usually at the meeting, you will find the Net Monkeys sitting in the front row but tonight in the dark they were busy on the mountain buttoning up an A net like they have done for weeks. They are setting things up for the rest of the Sled Dogs to jump in to finish our safety installations tomorrow morning so that we can run test pilots tomorrow afternoon. Still lots of work to do but the track is looking awesome. Nice work all.
Awesome effort be EVERYONE working on Build Week. You have set the stage for the Mens Week crews joining us who will keep our momentum going. There will be many familiar faces showing up this weekend (hugs all around). If you meet a first timer – make them feel part of the Sled Dog family. If you are a first timer – let us know.
That was a ‘pleasant’ surprise brushing 15 cee-ems off your car this morning, wasn’t it? It was a good start to our day. I was pretty convinced that during breakfast that many of the team had one eye on the Environmental Orientation and had one eye on first tracks. It’s ok, if you missed some of the Orientation, it will be repeated tomorrow. It was probably the first time this year anyone had snow come up on their shins on the course while arcing a few turns and it was also the first time that Super Dave got to test out his Ambiance Tent Squeegee – SnowWhacker. It passed with flying colors.
We had another good day working on the course. Wednesday was declared ‘Hug a Net Monkey’ Day. Now I realize why they jumped on the lift so early this morning.
After a hearty breakfast, Brooks led the first ‘Yoga on the Kokanee Deck’ session of the year. Just as the sun was rising, he led the entire Build Week crew – chiefs and all in a great stretch before jumping on the lifts. Hannes even jumped into the session.
