Sunday, February 12th: cross country ski

There should be plenty of nice new snow in the forest today! This afternoon’s ski doesn’t have a designated ski organizer so it’s up to everyone who shows up to figure out where they want to ski (which is pretty much what we do all the time anyway). Since without an organizer there is no guarantee that anyone will be there, please comment below if you plan to come out so that others will know that someone will be there for them to ski with, otherwise they may not come out.
Date: Sunday, February 12th
Time: 1:00
Meeting Location: parking lot at Beagle Club
Organizer: none – please respond below if you are coming
