We were fortunate to have snow for this year’s Clifton Park Winterfest on February 10. Even with light rain at times we were able to enjoy the snow excellently groomed with the Shenendehowa Nordic Clubs new gooming equipment in Garnsey Park, Rexford.  We had 4 youth finish the Nordic Ski Races:  The two in front are enthusiastic new skiers in what we call the “lollipop” class 6 years and under.  The two on the snow bank are in the U10 (under age 10) class.  Three others joined in a citizen’s race.  Results are summarized:

Lollipoppers (0.5 k)

  • James Clark           0:06:21    1st Place
  • Logan Turnock     0:06:40    2nd

U10 (~2 k)

  • Nolan Gilloolie      0:15:08    1st place
  • James Buetow       0:16:34    2nd

Citizens Race (~2 k)

  • Aline Flaherty       0:17:26    1st place female
  • Charlie Huff           0:11:46   1st place male
  • Jim Flaherty          0:17:56    2nd place male

Later that evening nearly 80 community and club members enjoyed a candlelight ski and snowshoe event with bonfire, marshmallows, hot drinks and good company and great fun on snow.
