This upcoming Wednesday, January 7th we’ll be having the first meeting of the Denali Junior Nordic Ski Program. We won’t actually be getting into our skis for this first session, but rather we’ll be doing a “gear check” to make sure that all of the kids – as well as volunteer parents - have the proper clothing and equipment to partake in the program. Registration forms will also be available as well as schedules of this winter’s sessions.

So parents, make sure that this Wednesday your kids bring their skis, poles, daypacks and clothing that you’ve set-aside for Ski Days to the Sheldon Community Arts Hangar between 1:30 and 3:30 PM. It would also be convenient if some parents brought their vehicles to the Elementary School to shuttle kids over to the Hangar from the school.

It is important that all parents who have their kids in the program be at the Hangar at 3:30 PM to pick up there kids. The parents who are involved in this program ARE volunteers, after all, so it is helpful when everyone is prompt in picking up their children after each session.

We’ll also be showing the inspirational video “The Joy of Skiing” about the training and antics of the Norwegian National Ski Team.

If you have any questions call either

Troy Smiley and Stacey Argetsinger at 733- 8278

or Arthur Mannix at 733- 2615

It’s shaped up to be an awesome winter snow-wise, so it’s a really great time to get out with the kids and enjoy it. We’ll see you on Wednesday!

    Chris Bowman has graciously worked to get this blog up and running. As a number of us are "blog illiterates", hopefully, we'll get up to speed and be able to organize ourselves with a heightened level of efficiency through this site. Upcoming events for all of us to work on are the Oosik Classic Cross Country Ski Race & Apres' Ski Banquet/Dance, as well as the Junior Nordic Program.
    So check thissite every once in a while and keep in touch!
