Hello Ski Fans,
Today is the registration deadline for the Nickel Plate Loppet. Go to here to register: https://zone4.ca/onlinereg.asp?id=4289&lan=1
It looks like just over a third of the entire program is currently registered including most TRs. I guess Headley has a concert on Friday… so the Ertel’s won’t be coming…
Anyhowsers, the temperature at Nickel Plate has been relatively warm so I recommend Toko Yellow or Swix LF8 for glide wax. There may be some wet snow so there is the potential that we will be using Klister; do not apply any base binder please. Grip zones should be clean and sanded. Skis need to be handed to the grip waxers by 9am at the latest.
Regular Practise will occur at Telemark Saturday 10:30am with skis waxed for JDs, Led by Gillian and Ross.
The BC Championships are approaching in Salmon Arm. The registration deadline is February 15th at 7pm. I would like a very good attendance to this event as we are compete for the club championship. Register for Saturday’s classic race here: https://zone4.ca/onlinereg.asp?id=4189
Sunday’s Skate Relay requires a second registration which is free here: https://zone4.ca/onlinereg.asp?id=4295&lan=1
All relay teams will be decided by me and be based on prior performance this season.
