Here are a couple of changes/additions for this weekend:
The practice for this Sunday is going to revolve around the "Race for those not going to Nationals" race. The race is being designated as a competitive race for many college type of skiers who did not attend the races in Anchorage this week. I will be working at the race and would love to see MCN participation. This will be our practice. If you're not going to race, watch. This will be a great chance to see some great skiers close to home. Pat Cote, the race director, has been real inclusive about having MCN participation.
Here are a couple of points:
* This is a time trial, it's not an Eastern Cup. This will be a very laid back affair.
*the distance is 10.4 k, two Gloucester Hill loops
*see all registration requirements at www.nensa.net and www.skireg.com/events/register.asp?EventID=2154
The race starts at 9:30, if you show up at the previously scheduled 9:00am time should be adequate.
Coastsal Nordic Moonlight Ski
There will be a full moon ski, for the whole family on Saturday night at Pineland. This sounds like a festive affair and the skiing should be great. This event is being put on by the Coastal Nordic Ski Club, parent organization of MCN. Jeff Walker has a thorough write-up of the event at www.coastalnordic.blogspot.com/2008/12/full-moon-ski-and-potluck.html
