Here’s to a weird but great 2020 XC running season at East!
We are looking forward to our Virtual Banquet this Sunday, 11/8 at 3:00! We are limited to 100 people, so we ask that when possible, families use one device to connect to the Virtual Banquet. Here is the link: http://meet.google.com/nun-umxb-xjj
Prior to the banquet, we do have a few items for Runners to grab: socially distant running awards, 4 year running awards, sub club awards and a delicious cookie for all!
Drive by East, we’ll be stationed in front of the “E” and we’ll hand out these items.
We’ll be there from 1pm to 2:30, Saturday 11/7. See you there!
If unable to come by, we’ll work on having these items to you via running club or track practice.
Pre-race picnic: Friday, Nov 6 at 5:30 pm. It will be dark, so bring a flashlight or head lamp, your picnic, something to sit on and wear your mask. Be sure to social distance at all times during the picnic.

Remember to bring your uniform for check-in on Thursday. Same time, same place.
Cohorts 1 and 2: Please return your uniform on Thursday, 10/29 anytime between 3:45pm and 4:30pm to Abby and Kai’s moms. Return will be on the sidewalk between the north side of East HS and the baseball field. Wear your mask and maintain social distancing.
