Allan called me up and told me he wanted to do a casual race at Hickory Ridge to honor Dave Landgraf, proceeds will go to Hickory Ridge and Ski Strong.
Last year's event was super casual. Dave called me up out of the blue (it was only like Wed. or Thur. before the race). "Tell people to come, 15k for 15 bucks." So I got on it, and we had a pretty decent turn out for such little prep time. It's nice to be able to generate some funds for these ski trails because keeping them maintained and groomed is EXPENSIVE!
So here is the run down for this year:
BYOBAB--Which stands for "Bring your own beer and bib." Like last year, they're not springing for bibs, so just bring your Birkie bib or something and they'll write down the number at the start.
Time: 10:00 AM
Registration: 8-9:30 registration
Date: Sunday March 11th
Allan assured me that he'd be organizing some door prizes, and although I can't guarantee that will happen, it's dangerous to doubt Allan :)

The long and the short of it all is that this should be a fun way to close out the ski season if you don't feel like driving up to do the Bear Chase or the Pepsi Challenge!
