Ski from trees raise monies

This past weekend a longtime Nordic coach and friend gave us a wonderful pair of Madshus Birkebeiners 215cm with  lignostone edges as well. They need some love. So we will be restoring them fully along with new tar & wax**. We will then offer them up on Auction. From May 8th – 12th at http://www.ebay.com/itm/Madshus-Birkebeiners-215cm-/192174731559?roken=cUgayN

Proceeds will then be donated to the Club in which this coach works with in the UP of Michigan.

** The skis have 3 pin bindings currently. Post Auction we will contact the winner to see if they want different bindings. (additional fees may apply)

In 1973, the first year of the Birkie, cross country skiers were  sporting the best athletic gear of the day–knickers, wooden skis, and  bamboo poles.

Now is your chance to re-live that era by participating in  the Birkie “Nikkerbeiner.” This retro 5K ski tour on wooden skis has  been named after the Norwegian word for knickers. This event will take  place on Main Street, Hayward, at 5:00 p.m., Thursday, February 21, prior to the Torch Lighting and Welcome Ceremony.

Tell us about the “old school” equipment and clothing you  will be using for the event. This will  give our announcer great commentary while you ski and help spectators  judge the best retro outfits at the finish line.
