Notes:

  1. What a fabulous time we all had at the Mt Top Paintball Biathlon on Sunday! The skies were blue, the temps weren’t too low, and the wind left us in peace. It was beautiful. 43 skier-sharpshooters participated and smiles abounded. Congratulations to all of the skiers for whom this was a first time experience. We also appreciate the sportsmanship that participating in this type of race requires. Kids can’t control the paintball equipment and there are always glitches – it makes for an interesting and unpredictable race and teaches us to be flexible. Thanks to those kids who figured out how to smile and focus on the fun they had rather than on the technical difficulties! That’s what it is all about! If you have pictures you’d like to share, you can email them to me at bkl.@fordsayre.org and I will put them up on the site.
  2. Another fun note from the nordic racing world…The IPC Nordic Skiing World Championships took place this past week in Wisconsin and our 5/6 coach and former Paralympic skier Rob Walsh sent along this report from the field: “Just a short report from here in Cable  Wisconsin, home of the Birkebeiner and  now the IPC Nordic World Championships. For anyone who is interested, there is information available on www.usparalympics.com. Commentary was provided by  Thetford resident Peter Graves.” Thanks Rob!  Can you believe the range of experience in our coaching staff?
