It was a beautiful night out under the smiling crescent moon, but it sure was windy... Mark Guthart came out to do the timing and we had 20 racers.
> 18:28 - Gardar Signrrosen (skate; 9:10/9:18)Super fast time from Garder, Brian Eppen turned in his usual blazing fast classic performance, and took the best finish line crash award for the second time in his career! The Barnes / Kolsrud pairing was the most competitive of the night, just 4 seconds seperating them at the finish. Kim Eppen again did her part to make sure that all classic ski race prizes wind up in the Eppen house, 2 nice 6 packs to go with their pile of trophies.

The donation box had a good night, too, with around $120 stuffed in there. Thanks for donating, that is all piling up towards a new grooming sled. Big thanks as always to all of you for racing, Mark Guthart for his steady and cheerful timing, Brett Griggs for the grooming, and 30th Century Bicycle for prizes.
With so much snow on the ground and the forecast looking favorable I am hopeful we can have another tt next week, and plans are being made for a season ending, daytime mass start event on Sunday Feb 28th. Day after the Birkie, 8 laps, 24 k, the Herkabeiner!
