Mesabi East Invite Update - Waxing Policy
We have had a couple inquiries about waxing. So here is the notes from the Coaches Meeting this year on waxing:
For the 2017-2018, we propose the following:
- Complete ban of pure, 100% Fluorinated powder wax from any MSHSL sanctioned race.
- Restrict the use of pure, 100% Fluorinated block and liquid wax to Post Season, Section and State Championships only. Any use of these waxes must follow manufactures recommendations for application, i.e. Wearing of respiratory masks, and well-ventilated air space. No heating of this wax is allowed. And no student athletes are allowed in areas where pure fluorinated wax is being applied.
- Eliminate the use of LF and HF wax at regular season conference level races.
