Here we Go! Season Begins Thursday!

Welcome back from Ski Week (or, as it was known in our house, “Sleep Week.” Hope you are rested and ready for a great season! Here we go:Jamba Orders Due Tomorrow!
Have your athlete bring Jamba Order sheet(s) and all cash/checks tomorrow and give them to Coach Moe. Cards will be distributed later in the week.Uniforms — Important Info!
All athletes must have a uniform in order to compete! This year we have changed to a green uniform top and black  or green bottoms (so all athletes will need a new one! — Exceptions – those who received a new uniform in Fall Cross Country)
To receive a uniform, all athletes must submit this Uniform Order Form  Please double check this LIST. If your athlete’s name is on it, they will receive a uniform this week (there are backorders on a few; we will let you know. There will be ‘loaner’ uniforms for the meet Thursday in this case).  If your athletes’ name does not appear on the list (and they don’t already have a Cross Country Uniform), then you need to complete the order form and get it in to Coach Moe ASAP! (Payment option info is on the sheet. If you prefer to pay with a credit card, keep in mind that we pay 2.75 percent fees. If you wouldn’t mind adding in that fee to your total, it would be great!. You may make a credit card payment using the MBAF website link and enter “MCHS Track & Field/uniforms” in the field after “Booster Club”)First Meet Thursday @ Warren HS, Downey, 2:45 pm
The Mustangs will start the season on the road this Thursday, as three bus-loads of athletes will head to Warren High School in Downey. The coaches will let the kids know who will be competing in this meet. If you plan to come and watch, the hot tip is to park in the back of the school near the track. It’s a little crazy in front at meet-start time, as school is just getting out (think salmon swimming upstream). Give yourself plenty of time!

We also need more photographers. Please reply to this email if you can shoot photos Thursday or Saturday (or both!)
