Ski event and race announcements

We're quickly approaching Spring and our big kids ski day, the Barnelopet, followed by our final race of the season. Here's details:
            The 8th Annual Barnelopet cross country ski day for kids will be held on Sat., Mar. 6 at Skyway on Grand Mesa. This free day for kids ages 3-16 begins with registration from 10 to 11, free lessons at 11 and a fun race at Noon with distance based on ability. Kids must bring their own personal or rental ski equipment since none will be available on site. Info: call 434-9753, 249-1869. This event is brought to you by the Sons of Norway Vestafjell Lodge and the Grand Mesa Nordic Council.
PLEASE NOTE: if you have a spot to post a Barnelopet poster(s), let me know and I will get some to you. Also we need volunteers willing to take kids out for a short lesson/tour. No need to be a seasoned instructor, just patience and the ability to get them into their skis, give them pointers on how to move foward, how to negotiate hills and help them get up from falls. I'm looking for help from 10 until about 12:30 or any increments of that span. Give me a call, 434-9753. Thanks!
            The Mesa Meltdown cross country ski race will be held on Sat., March 13 at Skyway on Grand Mesa. This features 20K and 5K freestyle races starting simultaneously at 11 AM. Registration is on race day only, $10 for GMNC members, $15 for others. All ages and abilities are welcome. Info: call 434-9753.
