A huge thank you to all that helped at the run yesterday.  We had 60 people participate in our inaugural event – a great start for future events!  We’ll have totals for the skiers fundraising early next week for each skier – congrats for putting on a great show!  We had a challenging course, decent weather, great people and a great start to an excellent day.

Hopefully you were all able to rest up today and recover from all of your eating, mmm – leftovers!  Tomorrow we’ll meet up at 7:00am for core body, it looks like it will be beautiful tomorrow afternoon so that would be a great time to add in a roller-ski also.

Enjoy the rest of your Friday!

Woodland Trails has some sections that need some work and some of the trail crew is getting together on Sunday to do that. Below is the note from Dave Anderson along with a map of where they will be on Sunday. If you are looking for something to that day – let them know!

Wayne is planning an after Thanksgiving chainsaw and log toss party for us. See the attached map for the trail enhancement planned for Scouring Rush. We will be adding a little more up and an improved downhill run. We are going to meet at 8 in the morning on Sunday, November 29th on the Watson cul-de-sac. We will load up into one truck and drive part way back.

Let me know if you can help. If we get one more saw and a couple of log tossers, we should be able to finish by noon.

It will be fun!

Wow! We’ve got to start with a congrats to the team for this morning’s practice. 39! (counting 2 returning graduates!) Great numbers, great work, and hopefully a GREAT breakfast afterward. Well done group!

The Wild Turkey Wattle is tomorrow so make sure that your people have registered and are ready to go. We are unsure of the numbers that are coming – skinnyski did post a link so we may have a few more people coming through that. Workers – we’ll need you there at 7:15 to help us get set up and positioned, you’ll be out of there by 9:30 (or earlier if need be) Thanks in advance! Also, if people are able, could we have a few of you bring a dozen or so cookies/bars/treats or a jug of apple juice/cider for after the race? Nothing fancy and this is short notice so if you are able…call or drop Coach K an e-mail.

What else?? We’ll find out as we go…fun – fun – fun! See you bright and early again tomorrow (dress warm, should be a great day!). Oh – enjoy your Turkey Day and eat up!

We apologize to the parents tonight – we were running late after “losing” a few kids into the woods – all are accounted for and are home safe, but it took a few extra minutes (or so). We’ll be sure to have them back on time tomorrow and in the next trips! Thanks for your understanding!

Great workout today team!!

That is one of the words that comes to mind when describing yesterday. Beautiful, exciting, challenging, fun, interesting, fast, sunny, … We could continue but we digress. 21 teams participated in the Ride ‘n Tie, our largest showing yet. After 12 miles of racing, over an hour out on the course, sweaty, tired, acomplished – and – only 18 seconds seperated first and second place. Elk River was well represented this year but we were unable to bring the trophy back – next year we’ll be there. Results are posted online, contgrats to all who participated and thanks to the parents that came along and cheered!
