By:  Nancy Goudreau   (2018/02/07)


Hello to area skiers,

Tay Valley has been lucky with snowfall in the past few days; our Loppet course is in great shape for our upcoming race on Sunday February 11th. More snow is expected tomorrow, so it will only get better.

We have 40 skiers entered so far, and would like to see some more.

Enter for the fun, the exercise, the cookie, to try for a medal, or for a chance at a draw prize. Kilted skiers get Walkers Shortbread!
Entries include soup and sandwich lunch.
Entry deadline is Friday Feb 9th at 6 PM.

Please spread the word. Hope to see some of you on Sunday Feb 11 for some fun Loppeting!

Thank you, Nancy Gaudreau Race Director
