- BKL Festival February 19, 2015
The New England Bill Koch League Festival will be held March 7-8 at the Mountain Top Resort in Chittenden, Vermont. Outdoor activities will include x-c ski racing, Mike’s mini marathon, paintball biathlon, ice cream on snow, snow sculpture, Roger’s roarin’ terrain park, sledding, tubing, ice skating, horse drawn sleigh rides, 8th Grade graduation ski-down, and the ever popular lollipop race.
In addition to the competitive freestyle and classic races, this year the BKL Festival has added non-competitive options, known as “Nordic Adventure” events. These are perfect for kids new to skiing and nervous about racing, younger siblings who might not be racers yet, or just those who prefer to enjoy the winter wonderland without a sheet of results. All skiers (competitive and non-competitive) will have a schedule to allow everyone to experience activities such as ice cream making and paintball, where space is limited.The deadline for reduced rate registration is this Friday, February 20th. After that point, registration fees increase $10. The deadline to register for the festival is Saturday February 28th.Find more information on the festival website: http://www.2015bklfestival.comAnd click here to register! https://www.skireg.com/2015nebklfestival

- Updates and Reminders: BKL 1-day a week program February 15, 2015
Congratulations to the many Ford Sayre skiers who participated in this weekend’s Silver Fox Trot race in Hanover. It was wonderful to share in your excitement – and to witness the sense of community that continues to build around the Ford Sayre nordic program!
Thanks go out to everyone who helped make the event possible. Many, many families volunteered time – some hours, some days – to pull it off. Watching everyone put up the event, run it, and take it down with smiles on everyone’s faces was a spectacular thing. We would like to give enormous thanks to Lou Bregou, our Race Director. Lou spends many months preparing with his teams for this event. It is a herculean task, and he pulled if off beautifully once again! Thank you, Lou.
We hope you all enjoy this week of vacation and rest. Please remember that we will not hold practices this coming week since it is vacation week for the Dresden school district. We’ll see everyone again on Tuesday, February 24, and will wrap up our regular season on Tuesday, March 3. Please also mark your calendars for an end-of-year potluck celebration on the evening of Friday, March 13 at the Richard W. Black Recreation & Senior Center in Hanover (more details to come).Continue reading →
