Joe McGowan Fund Grant

Today Anne and Kevin McGowan presented a $1,000 unrestricted check to LNSA from the Joe McGowan Fund.    Joe was an avid skier, artist, and as close to perfect as a person could be.   We are deeply grateful to have had an association with Joe, and to receive this gift.

Joe had a saying  “Let’s go do some stuff”  which seems a fine mantra to follow.  Thanks Joe.

Old Coaches Race Results

About 30 competitors ranging from young(less than 10yrs) to not-so-young (greater than 70 yrs.) competed.  Everybody won their category, and some won some other categories.  Here are the results, but each person is responsible for their own story or excuse.

Also, 5 km was really 5.5km, the 10k was 11, while the 15k was 16.5k.  Didn’t want the participants to know ahead of time.

Updated Dec 31, 2016

And last March’s photo

FYI: the camera takes a picture every hour.  Every 2 hrs it is supposed to transmit the photo via Union Cellular to a server in Canada.  The server was unable to relay the photo back to my Union Cellular phone, but can send it to a Google Voice phone #, which then forwards it to my Union phone.  While at Google, we are trying to collate and upload the photos to a public WordPress account.  Wordpress lacked the necessary collation codes, so now the head geek (who we will call Matt) is developing another site that we can all link to.  Meanwhile, above is a manual upload of a recent photo.

OCR Results – revised

Good show everybody.  Results are OCR Results 12-26-15 – Sheet 1 revision1

Corrections?

Citizens Race Saturday Dec 26th

xcskiworld mass photo

Start and Finish at the Yurt.

No Charge to Lander Nordic Members or guests/pledges (sort of like a fraternity we are)  Non-members may also race, but we will glare at you until you commit (and the officials may add time/distance to your effort).

NOON – LVHS Time Trial & Old Coaches Race Start. You can choose your technique and your distance; 5km, 10km or 15km options. This is open and free to everyone. Mass start is self-seeded waves of approximately 20 people.

This is supposed to be a fun intro to citizen racing, or it can be as serious as you desire.  Lycra to wool knickers are appropriate.  Youngest and oldest entrants will receive appropriate commendations.
