Mesabi Invite Change

For the Mesabi Invite, that is on Saturday, Jan 6, 2018, we have up to 10 boys and 10 girls race in the largest high school Nordic ski meet in the country at Giants Ridge in Biwabik, MN.  In years past we have stayed at Camp Chicagami and were able to take most of the team.  This year, we were unable to get into Chicagami, (filled by non-Nordic groups) and with the meet, a hockey tournament in the Eveleth/Virginia area, lodging was a challenge to find.  With that in mind, we will be staying in Cloquet and will only be taking the 10 boys and 10 girls that will be racing.  I am still working on the costs, but this will be a change for us.  We will be leaving on Jan 5th at noon, going to Pine Valley trails in Cloquet to ski, and then we will be able to use their building there to wax our ski's.  I am currently working on dinner plans, but the kids will be able to get breakfast at the hotel we are staying at or bring their own.  Lunch on Saturday will be provided for as well.
I will be sending out more information about this the week of the race.  We will be picking those that will be racing after tonight's race in Mora and will be letting everyone know after Christmas.
Thanks and if there are any questions, please let me know,
