(sleeping is always an option)
Leftover snacks from previous races will be on the bus for all. Again it would be nice to have a breakfast organized for the trip.  ( I have enough bagels for all, and 18 yogurt sticks, need cream cheese, fruit and drinks.) Anyone willing to take this on would be appreciated.  

Personally I want to say thank you for a great season!   We accomplished way more than we thought possible.  If you rented skis you have them till the snow melts!  Use them the trails will be there!

Keep an eye on emails and Face Book this summer.  There are rumors of TNT game nights being organized.
