St. Charles, IL

Pit toilet and water from a well on site.

Please bring:
HELMET, roller skis, ski poles, boots, water bottle, lunch, warm clothes/extra clothes for all conditions, running shoes, gloves (roller ski, mtb etc…), knee/elbow pads if you like (better safe than sorry you may be trying new things). Camera, sunscreen.

Payment and waiver: Please bring a signed waiver and in a sealed envelope please place either a check made out to one of the athlete's or cash. We need the waiver outside the envelope so we can verify everyone has signed one the donation is sealed so we don't lose it and we don't have the forest preserve bothering us for using the park w/out a permit for an organized event. We roller ski there all the time and use various areas on the trail and roads so hopefully we don't draw a ton of attention. Suggested donations are $50 for one day $75 for two days $25 extra for video analysis. As I've mentioned before if you are short on funds come and give what you can and if life is treating you well please think about giving a bit more. A clinic like this is usually much more plus travel and lodging expenses. In this case they flew here to you.
