Mission Impossible

Planting Ice Cubes on high Ground under a ominous sunset.

Planting Ice Cubes on high Ground under a ominous sunset.

The assignment was to take to the highest ground as possible and bury ice cubes. You and I know that with the last couple of days of warm weather the ground is no longer frozen. A little help from all of us can improve the likelihood of the coming snow storm giving us a “good dump”.

The Shenendehowa Nordic Club’s Bill Koch Youth League did their best to assure an upcoming healthy snow storm. Others will wear their pajamas inside out and others will flush ice cube trays. What is your favorite trick?


Bundle Up in Many Layers

Bundle up for ski practice this Tuesday. It will be one of the colder, windier days we have had so far. Many layers is better than one thick parka, so you can take off a layer when we get out in a more protected area.

If the ground is white bring your ski equipment. If not at least bring your ski poles. If you have not dug out your ski equipment, yet, now is a good time.  I was able to ski on some thin white stuff last Wednesday.

On Saturday Nov. 22 from 9 AM to noon there’s a Winter Sports Equipment Sale at the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church, 860 Route 50, Burnt Hills. If you have questions about what to look for I can answer them Tuesday as the group gathers. For more information about the Community Sports Equipment Sale contact our friend Greg Adams at 399-5875 or the church office at 399-5144.

Our Bill Koch Youth Ski League members are encouraged to sign up on Nordic Rocks to keep track of the time you spend on skis this winter.  This replaces the Ks for Kockers program that we had in previous seasons.  It will be more fun to see how our club stacks up its fun on snow this season.
