TrailCam – work in progress

Update:  Sun Mar. 20 2016

The coaches after church:

 

Looks like 4-6″ new snow

 

Still a work in progress, but we are becoming cognizant of cellular glitches and loopholes.  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.

Hopefully, we will have the kinks worked out soon, so that you will be able to see sequential photos of the conditions at Beaver Creek.  The camera is installed and functioning, but the links to transferring the photos in an automated fashion are slow to function properly.  Above is todays latest photo, note that the date and temp are time stamped on the bottom of the photo.

 

OCR Results – revised

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

Old Coaches Race will be at Golf Course!

Due to the forecast for harsh cold at Beaver Creek on Dec. 26th, the race WILL instead happen at the Golf Course at noon.  Register there by 11:45.  Skiathon, classic or skate tech’s acceptable.    Email forthcoming with more details.  Spread the word – plus you can pop into the clubhouse to buy some hot chocolate etc.

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.

Timing by the ValleyGirls Timing Consortium (or somebody)
