Gatineau Nordique Sport: Easterns Stone Grinding update
By:  Wayne Johannsen   (2012/01/31)


Ari Niemi, the rep for Star Wax, will have a booth set up by the Stadium. He will be there from Thursday to Sunday. This is the location where you can drop off/pick up skis for the duration of the competition. Myself, or someone representing me, will be at the Star Wax booth, Thursday thru Saturday at 2:00 pm each afternoon to pick up and drop off skis.  On Sunday, the skis will be at the booth by 1:00 pm.

If I receive skis by Tuesday, Jan. 31, I will have these skis ready and at the Star Wax booth by 2:00 pm on Thursday, Feb. 2.

If I receive skis by Wednesday, Feb. 1, I will have these skis ready and at the Star Wax booth by 2:00 pm on Friday, Feb. 3.

There will be an info sheet with directions to Gatineau Nordique Sport in case you need or want to bring or drop off skis at my work location.

I need 24 hours minimum from the time I pick up skis to the time I return the skis. For example, if I pick up skis on Friday at 2:00 pm in the afternoon, I will have the skis back in the Star Wax booth by 2:00 pm on Saturday.

On Sunday, if you leave skis with Ari, with the appropriate info, in particular your name and phone number, I will then contact you on Monday. I will be able to grind the skis and send them out on Wednesday morning by Purolator.

COST - $80 - which includes the grind and the heatbox. I will charge $10 to use CH4 to harden the base. (recommended)

If you are intending on using my services for the Eastern's, it would be greatly appreciated if you could contact me in advance.
