Craigmeur Ski Club

SSMPR @ Hunter MT.

28 Mar

The last race of the season was held at Hunter Mt. this past Saturday. It is hard to believe the season is over but all good things have to come to the end. Now we can move on to Bike Larry, Bike NY, Roy Yankees, Glen Jimmy Buffet, The Clam Bake and Don Pub crawl, just to mention a few upcoming events. We had 8 racers & 2 trainees get up early and drive the 2 hours for the annual SSMPR @ Hunter Mt. The weather was sunny and mid 30’s, the Mt conditions were very favorable for free skiing through the Mt. The race course was challenging as the rain from the beginning of the week make the hill some what icy between the gates.

Thanks to all!

2008 Club Race

19 Mar

On Saturday March 8, 2008 we held our annually Craigmeur Club Race at Pico, VT. The weather was overcast with mix precipitation, lucky the heavy rain held off until the race was finished and everybody heading back to the lodge. This was a record turn out for the race, with 33 children & 24 adults all completing for the chance in winning a Craigmeur Gold Medal.

Some notes from the race, Chuck almost had his best run every, except a gate got in the way of his nose and cause a major crash. Congrats to Craig on finishing 2nd and being a gracious winner. Thanks to Roy for taking all the pictures.

The tailgate party was smartly decided in the morning to be held at the lodge by Tracey. The party as usually had more food & drinks then people, with plenty of hamburgers, dogs, wings, home salads and other snacks. The kids still had fun play games, tag, etc…, the adults were able to get a power nap and others just enjoyed a good conversation.

Thanks to Tracey for her fine efforts and making the event a success! Also I like to thank some of her assistants and cooks, Kurt, Bob, Oliver, Eric and Phil.

Thanks for everybody coming out and making the event so successfully.
