II.      Petition from Eaglebrook School

Dear ISSCA Competition Committee,

Because of a recent change of date (our notification 9/26) of the Class B championship to Saturday, February 21 from the original date set at our Spring meeting of Wednesday, February 11, Eaglebrook is requesting to be allowed to participate in the Class A or Class C championship for this year only.† A prior school commitment conflicts with the Saturday, February 21 date.† The school has made plans to participate on the original date.

Our school took in good faith; the date set at the Spring meeting and certainly would have supported the Saturday date if it was announced then.† We support not missing classes, but because of our school's commitment on Saturday, February 21, we are asking the Competition Committee to allow Eaglebrook to participate in another class on the Wednesday, February 11 date.

Sincerely, Christopher Loftus

Athletic Director

Jack Shea

Director of Snowsports
