Cross Country Ski Report – Monday, March 11th, 2013

We had a great turn out for the Michigan Cup Relays yesterday, and the rain held off till the end of the race! Thanks to all the teams, volunteers and staff who made this a most memorable event. Special thanks to Don Mick and his registration and timing crew Bob Hagerman and Bill Gulledge. Also special thanks to Cross Country Ski Headquarters Team Captain Frank Rynalski for leading the team to winning the 2013 Michigan Cup and the 2013 Brumbaugh Cup!
