Ski-O & Snowshoe-O at Frisco Peninsula
Saturday, February 14th, 2009 -- Frisco

Many thanks to Frisco Nordic Center for the use of their excellent facilities! The immaculate grooming was a real pleasure for competitors. Thank you to owners: Gene & Therese Dayton and Manager Rob Weeks and staff!

Doug and Sharon decided to use a new format that worked out very well. There was no time limit except the 3:00 pm when courses closed. You could ski (classic or skate) or snowshoe and choose how many controls to find (8, 12, 16, or all 20).

Sverre announced that he was a newbie and it turns out that he'd never attended a Ski-O or Snowshoe-O at Frisco before! He made up for this lack of experience by placing second on the Long snowshoe course!

Congrats to John Crowther, Brendan White, and Bryan Caylor for getting all 20 controls, but Graham Baird was truly a Ski-O great with a time of 1:12:49 to get all 20! What a great performance!

We had a good turnout for Valentine's Day, great weather, and a very helpful crew including C2 (Claire and Carol), who pitched in all day then picked up controls at the end! I was grateful to have a chance to go out on the short course with my daughter and her boyfriend.

Many thanks to Sharon for multi-tasking and Doug for printing the maps!

Yours in snow,
