INFORMATION FOR THE 1 DAY BKL PROGRAM:
|Location:||Garipay Fields (9 Reservoir Road, Hanover)|
It is starting to look a LOT like spring, and Garipay Fields are clear of snow. While we really wish that we had snow, we are excited to get outside and enjoy the fresh air with your children. If your child is up for running around in the fields and playing games, please send them to practice in their running shoes. As always, all of our practices are optional — please drop me a note if your child doesn’t plan to come.
Bill Koch League Festival, March 5-6:
The New England Bill Koch League (BKL) Festival is the culminating event of the New England Nordic Ski Association’s Bill Koch Youth Ski League. This year it will be held at the Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center in Pinkham Notch, NH on Saturday and Sunday, March 5-6. The theme for the Festival is White Mountain Magic! Activities include games, races, obstacle course, radar runs, and more! (And, Great Glen has snow-making abilities!). Click here for more information, and here to register. The online registration deadline is Saturday, February 27th at 5:00 PM EST.
Note: The BKL festival is very fun and works hard to include kids with a variety of skiing interests. Children can register to participate in timed races (grades 1-8), in the non-timed Lollipop race (2nd grade and younger), or in the Nordic Adventurers category (kids of all ages can be part of the fun without racing).
