2013 Double Double

Postby Paul Wilkinson » 03 Jan 2013, 12:08

Skiers,

We are planning this year's Double Double for Sunday February 24. The route is tbd based on trail availability, etc. Typically we do about 60 km starting with classic technique and finishing with skate - two big laps of each.
Start time is 8 am
Bring your own food and drink, etc., there is no support
Open to all, club members for free, others with a day pass
No prizes, not really a race, just for fun

Hope you can come. It's always a great day out and a nice accomplishment.

The sixth annual Double Double Skiathlon was completed yesterday by the following hardy skiers. Congratulations.

Glenn Cameron
Kent Crockower
Brian De Leenheer
David Feick
Tim Hadfield
Lynn Kostuch
Richard Spirk
Paul Wilkinson
Dave Woodfine

60 km is a long way. But the trail conditions and the weather were perfect.

A special mention goes to Brian, David F and Lynn who completed the event for their first time.

We plan to add a second, shorter distanced event next year; basically, a “single single”. It needs a name. If anyone has any ideas please let me know (psw224@gmail.com).
