Comments: I widened a portion of the moose , but with lots of tiller pressure. If it is a little soft the snow should set up over night , the Dog Run and the Beaver look great for both classic and skate skiing , Anthony

The first message is from Travis, our Head Coach and Chief of Race:
 
Well folks.  The Moose Marathon is upon us on Feb 24th!  (Race Notice is here.)  All kids in the Rabbits program will be once again registered.  Race distances are 1.5, 5, 10, 15 or 30 km’s.  Pretty relaxed format.  Mass start for everyone at the same time, unless you are doing 30 km’s.

They will be set up in the stadium area in front of the lodge.  Everyone welcome to come and experience French culture and fun in the snow.  There will be food concession in the lodge.

Meanwhile, the ski trails are in great shape and ready for cross-country skiers!  The club's regular trail fees and rental fees apply.  The Winter Carnival participants will not be using the trail system.

Thanks to the volunteers for stepping into these extra weekend shifts!  (Bring them chocolate....)

Picked up in parking lot on Jan. 24:  a jack knife/utility tool.  Contact Cathy (635-7397) to describe it and claim it.

Also, someone left a partially used booklet of day pass tickets behind a few weeks ago.  Waiting for someone to claim them too.

Hey everyone, for some reason the lit trails are not lit right now, something happened last night, and we are getting an electrician out there to take a look.  Make sure you have a headlamp if you are going skiing when it's dark.

Early Bird draw #1 has been completed.  All club members who have sent in their memberships on or before Nov. 18 were included in the draw, 141 members in total.  Winners:  Carl Johansen won a free membership for next year's ski season, and Travis Carter won a handwoven wool blanket.  Congratulations to both of you!  The next draw is Dec. 2, and will include all registrations received by mail or online on or before Dec. 1.

Grooming update (since I can't get into the groomers' report at the moment): 

From Dean today at noon:  So the lot/road are cleared and BJ is trackpacking with the Bearcat and Dean is trackpacking with the Snowkitty...lots of beautiful snow out here....they are plowing the logging road also so be careful....

From Liz this evening:  Update.  Parking lot and drive way are plowed.  Jim has dug out the lodge and environs.  I got my first lesson track packing with Dean.  BJ drove the snowcat.  Stadium, Beaver, snowbound and Moose are packed, Dean will set tracks tomorrow morning.  Strongly advise an evening ski tomorrow

 

Hello everyone!  Hope you enjoyed your May Long Weekend!  We have one last work party to put the trails to bed, coming up on Saturday, May 27 starting at 10 am.  We need 2 or 3 people with high-clearance vehicles to cruise the trails doing a sign inventory.  Cupboards and tables in the lodge need to be cleaned, we need to get the concrete blocks into place on the Troll trail. and we need to paint the deck.  This shouldn't take very long if we have enough people, and we always have fun!  So please, come on out and pitch in for as long as you can.  Bring the kids, some wieners and marshmallows and it'll be a great day! (Soup and bread will be provided.)
See you there!      --Liz Thorne (Past Prez. - SVNSC)
