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!!
Bill Meyer, Coach
