Equipment Advice and Preparation for Races:
- Please clearly mark your skis and poles with your skiers’ names.
- Please mark the kick zone for classic waxing. (Easily done, as the following video demonstrates. Make sure bottoms of skis are clean, and the floor is as well. YouTube: Finding Your Kickzone)
- We strongly recommend ski straps for both keeping track of and protecting your skis. Mark those with your name as well! Amazon: Swix Ski Straps

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is NENSA and BKL and what do they have to offer?
NENSA is the New England Nordic Ski Association; our parent organization. They are the umbrella group for nordic ski racing in the North East. As a Ford Sayre BKL racer, you are obliged to be a member of NENSA — hence the $25 you paid at registration.
In return, NENSA offers its members comprehensive information and news on Nordic skiing in New England, including an online race schedule that covers the extended region and also lists adult races and junior events .
The Bill Koch League (BKL) is a part of NENSA that is devoted to fostering a love of skiing among children in grades K to 8. The BKL page on the NENSA site offers details on clinics, events, and general kid-related nordic info.
