Update for MNCup #3

This morning we groomed the race loops at the Nisswa range. Really worked up better than I expected. We will touch them up on Saturday am also.

There are a few windblown areas with some grass showing and the windy days brought down some pine needles on the camel humps..but otherwise should be great skiing! These courses will reward quick technique transitions, and good cornering skills. The snow will be cold with some ice mixed in—so really fast. Temps are forecast in the low 20’s.

I will send out a start list on Saturday for the Sprint. It will be randomly selected; while the following Pursuit format at 10 sec start intervals will be in the order of finish from the Sprint. Eleven athletes so far are planning on starting.

Mt Itasca not good for tomorrow (Saturday, November 17)

Hi All,
The groomer at Mt Itasca had a boiler issue at his house yesterday and today, and did not get the snow pushed and groomed. Possibly tomorrow night. I will let you know. So the practice we had hoped for tomorrow there is off. Anyone looking to shoot is welcome to come here [no snow—just some ice on the roads] and shoot at 10:00 tomorrow.
Sorry ‘bout that!!
