from Wisconsin Rapids:
The snow fencing covering the plastic on our 52 meter hill broke loose from its anchors and slid down into the dip. It is a big frozen mass and not able to be moved until spring. Therefore, there will be no competition on our 52 m this winter.
We are in the process of snowing the 5, 10 and 22 meter hills which will be available for our January 18 meet. As you all know, lack of snow and manpower is always a concern. If everything is a GO, competition in all classes will be held on these 3 hills. There will be a $15.00 entry fee and this meet will not be sanctioned, so no card required. All skiers are invited to join us for training on Saturday, January 17 with no hill fees and our concession stand will be available. If hotel accommodations are required, the Sleep Inn, 4221 8th Street South, 715.424.6800, is offering a $60.00 room rate with breakfast. Ask for the Tri-Norse ski jump special.
That is all for now. I will send a progress report on Monday, January 12 regarding our meet and hill conditions.
