It's not uncommon for parents new to ski racing to find the race day routine somewhat perplexing. You can learn much from posts to this site and by talking to other parents. Even so, the best plans are subject to change. It's tough for coaches to communicate with 50+ kids and their parents in real time. So, some parents have suggested using Twitter as an informal, on-hill, real-time communication channel.
For quite some time, the team has used the #bssef hashtag to redistribute posts made to this blog via Twitter. Parents and coaches can tag their messages with #bssef in order to distribute and receive team-related tweets (e.g. via your smart phone). Although on-hill cell phone coverage can be pretty spotty across the Northern Division, it's getting better.
Consider this an informal, unofficial, and supplemental experiment. It's not intended to replace structured communications from the coaches. However, Twitter does offer the prospect of getting the word out quickly regarding team meetings, video study, etc. The tool offers the prospect of making the lives of coaches and parents easier. So, it's worth a try.
