XC Season Kick-off Party: The XC Season Kick-off Party is Going to be EPIC! The party will be Saturday, July 7th and it will be at the home of Harold and Elisa Kuphaldt. We will be doing a Potluck dinner and a Chili Cook-off by the Senior runners! There may even be a Live band (Former BV Distance standout and state meet qualifier Matt Coss has a band and may be performing … still working out details) a fabulous pool, fireworks and a great opportunity to have fun and bond as a team!

The Kuphaldt’s address is:

4416 Kenneth Ave
Fair Oaks, CA 95628

The Seniors should arrive at 4:00 PM with their Chili and to help set-up. The party starts at 5:00 pm. We will begin eating and sampling and voting for the best chili as soon as people begin arriving. Runners can swim, eat and socialize before the band begins playing. The band will be playing about 6:00 – 7:00 PM and 7:30-8:30 followed by Fireworks at about 9:00 PM.

  1. If you are a Senior Runner … Bring a large pot of your best Chili recipe with enough for everyone to try a small sample. No labels … it must be anonymous!
