Folks, the weather is not working with us. All of our potential sites will not have enough terrain open this weekend to host an event. We will push back to March 19th and try again.
Due to the recent rains and high winds, the local areas will freeze up hard before the weekend. They don’t think they will be able to groom most of their trails by the weekend so we will postpone until the next weekend or the next after that if possible. Pray for snow.
