NYSSRA – Nordic’s President Jim Kobak recognized Shenendehowa Nordic Club with a Presidential Citation at the fall NYSSRA meeting in Utica September 27, 2009. We are recognized because of our Club’s varied programs to foster Nordic ski sport in the southern Saratoga County area.
“I am proud of the enthusiasm all of our member families have for the sport and the effort that each family puts in through the ski season and throughout the year,” said Eric Hamilton, Club Secretary, upon receiving the award in behalf of the Club. “I know of at least a half dozen other clubs across the state that seem just as effective,” added Hamilton.
In addition the Shenendehowa Nordic Club was provided a January 16, 2010 place on the NYSSRA calendar to host an Empire State Games and NYSSRA series cross country ski race. In past years we have obtained a sanction and held this as a fund raiser at the Saratoga Biathlon Center about an hour away in the Saratoga County town of Day.
The club will be holding it’s first Bill Koch Youth Ski League practice on November 3 at Koda Middle School. In addition we will have an open house later in November at High School East. These will be the kick off events as the Shenendehowa Nordic Club starts into its thirtieth season as a local Nordic ski club.
