For the second year the club is hosting the Western States Youth Festival, races for 7 to 14 year old skiers from our region. We will have about 120 racers from Washington, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming and of course Montana. The race will be Saturday and Sunday, February 26 & 27 at the Glacier Outdoor Center in West Glacier. Friday we will need volunteers to help set up the course and stadium from 9 to 12am; Saturday will have three races including an interval start skate race, a downhill race (on nordic skis) and an obstacle course race. We need volunteers starting at 8 or 8:30 until about 2pm. On Sunday we will need volunteers from 8:30 until noon or 1pm. Volunteers will be helping with timing or the race course. Ideally timers can work both days. We also have a need for volunteers in Whitefish on Saturday from 3pm on to help prep food and set up for a banquet (at the Middle School). Please email me and let me know if you can help – and which day(s) and if you have any job preferences.
If you would like to see more information on the race you can go to http://glaciernordicclub.com/events/the-race-at-glacier/. If you aren’t able to volunteer, come cheer on the Glacier Nordic Team racers – we will have 15 or so locals competing. There will be some intense competition at the J3 level where the racers are getting ready to try for Junior Nationals next year.
