REMINDER: Monday Night Skiing/Racing
Come out and join your MTL ski club members Monday Night to ski/race. The age divisions are wide open. We want and need everyone, including new members, beginners, scaredy-cats, and intermediates. Everyone will score points even if they snowplow the entire route and stop mid-way to adjust their boots. We can't emphasize this enough: we need everyone, everyone is important, and everyone will score points! Our membership is how we did it the last two years. If we show up, we will retake the lead, successfully defending our title.
Everyone, at least once Monday night! Free pizza and camaraderie afterwards!
