Greetings Nordic Folk!
Here’s some Nordic news to get March off to a great start!
Team Scream – Saturday, March 4th
Get your costumes ready!  Revelstoke Nordic’s very own Team Scream race is this Saturday.
You can race solo and complete the skiathalon course (one classic lap, one skate lap), or you can make a team and race one lap each as a “Dynamic Duo”.  Here are the details:
  • The race consists of two laps of Mickey Olsen (3.75km) and can be done in teams of two as a relay OR as a single skier (skiathlon).
  • There will be prizes for best costume*, tough cookie and random draw prizes.
  • *The costume theme is “Dynamic Duos“.  E.g. Sonny and Cher, salt and pepper, Batman and Robin, Sugar and Spice, Day and Night….
  • Main race starts at 11:00 a.m.
  • Bunnies start time is 10:15 a.m. (warm-up at 10:00 a.m.) Bunnies can choose to ski Titan or laps around the Stadium.
  • Free Chilli lunch!
Please register online BEFORE March 4th if you can!  It really helps the volunteers who are organizing the event.

Last minute registrations will be taken the morning of the race between 9:30-10:00 a.m. in the lodge.  Contact Eleanor Wilson (revyeleanor@gmail.com) or Sarah Newton (sarahnewton33@gmail.com) for details about this fun race.
 
Wondering about Wax?
There is now a white board on the wax room door on the lower level of the lodge.  It’s a place to share information about what wax worked well for the present conditions.  So if your wax was great for your ski, please share with other skiers who might need some advice about how to wax.  Sharing is caring!
