Let it Snow!

This Thursday's nordic ski race will be at Twin Brook Recreation Area, on Tuttle Road in Cumberland. It's only ten minutes from school. The races will be skate-style, which makes things fast and exciting, and the fresh snow will make them work for it. Boys start first this week, with waves starting every 30 seconds beginning at 3:30. The girls start soon after the last boys. The fastest skiers will take about twelve minutes to finish.

Bring the kids and come cheer for Tristram, Sinéad, Violet, and Cecilia as they put forth their best effort for Portland Nordic. It would be especially interesting to see some fifth graders out in the crowd - they can join the team next year.
