Grooming Report December 7, 2013

Greetings NTN Members; December 7, 2013
Congratulations to the Snow Ball organizers. Revelers were treated to a wonderful venue, delicious appetizers and dinner, excellent music and the word premier of the movie Cold Rolled.
All trails were groomed Thursday night. Trails remain hard and fast today. There are classic tracks on the Noque but they are poorly shaped although some skiers reported classic skiing was good. We will be grooming the skate lanes this evening and will take another shot at building classic tracks.
New snow is forecast for Sunday and Sunday night so maybe our snow dancing wasn’t so bad afterall.

Skiers are reminded of our need for volunteer trail hosts and groomers. As trail host you get to see the world, meet interesting people AND stay warm and dry. Trail host orientation will occur this Saturday at 1:00 P.M. along with the grooming orientation. With another few groomers we would have all trails groomed more often. Remember, it is fun, a chance to see the world, meet interesting people and get cold and wet. Please call Nikki at 906 235 6861 or email us at noquenetwork@gmail.com. Groomer orientation will take place December 7 at 1:00 P.M.
