Mesabi Invite Update

Last day to register for the ME Invite – Jan. 8th – 7:00 pm today.

If you forgot to email me about the spaghetti feed, do so now: pepsichallenge@giantsridge.com.

Electronic waivers must be done on each of your skiers in the race - www.giantsridge.com/waivers – please do them before the race.

Payment to Giants Ridge must be done when picking up your bibs.

Bib pick up until 9:00 am race day – Ground floor entrance in main chalet. Coaches meeting 9:30 am main Chalet – Burnt Onion Restaurant – 2nd floor.

There will be tight space in the stadium this year for those of you bringing your team tents. Because we are previewing the sprint race course on Friday the fencing might be very close to The Lodge at Giants Ridge. We ask that you do not block any of the many doors in/out of The Lodge with tents, ski equipment and ski bags. Also, the hill coming down into the stadium must be left open for all participants to get to the stadium. Please be respectful and not block entrances, etc. on race day.

The chalets on race day will not house 800+ skiers and ski bags and equipment are not allowed in the main chalet.

If you are using your bus for your team on race day park in parking lot A – per the parking map.

There will be ski patrol and a water table at the finish line on race day. If you have skiers who need inhalers, etc. – please have them available at the finish line

Short Sleeve t-shirts will be on sale for $20.00 at the spaghetti feed and outside in front of The Lodge on race day.

It is looking great for race day – our temps have been warming up for Saturday! We received many inches of snow in the past week and the courses are looking good!

Good luck at the races. Happy New Year!
