Minnesota Youth Ski League
*******OVERALL SERIES RESULTS******* are attached below. Also all race results.
We were not able to get names of participants in the MinneLoppet, so if your child did this as a second race in the series, let me know and I will prepare a certificate. And of course, let me know if there are any other corrections. Compiling the results was a bit more challenging than expected (too many different results formats), but now we know better for next year!
Certificates will be handed out on March 7th 2pm at the Wirth Chalet (MYSL Great Ski Together). Certificates and medals (for J3-J5 overall) will be handed out at Wirth on Mar 13th at noon up in the stadium (Midwest Junior Championships).
Congratulations to all of the racers!
Full results are attached below.
Night #7 (2/17/10) was our 2010 finale. We had a record 9 teams. Sachs and Duede put the hurt on six laps of the 2.5km loop to go out on top.
Night #6 gave us some of everything; teams of men, mixed, classic skiers and youth.
Night #5 expanded the loop to 2k. The course was in perfect condition for yet another close and exciting team sprint.
Night #4 finally broke the Duede/Sachs reign (indeed Duede wasn't there) with Chip Tabor and Dave Nelson pulling off a close victory on a cold night.
Night #3 featured more hills and continued domination of the Dave Duede and Chris Sachs team.

The Minnesota Youth Ski League will be holding its Annual Meeting on:
Everyone is welcome. We are always looking for new Board members!
Despite the blustery day we had yesterday we've got a perfect day today to ski! Two weeks in a row- pretty amazing, huh?
Parents, please bring skis today! See you at Dunton Locks at 2:30!!
Well, it was -29 when I left for work this morning and not supposed to get a whole lot warmer through the course of the day... but thankfully I just checked the weather and it looks like this cold should be gone by the weekend and we'll be back into the low teens. This just might mean we can meet two weeks in a row!!
The kids are doing great, we are so impressed with how well the whole group is skiing! Big thanks to all the parents who came with skis last Sunday. More hands trying to help some of the little ones are greatly appreciated!
I absoultely hate to cancel again, but we keep getting these blasts of icy air on Sundays! The temps are currently well below zero with a wind of about 15mph forcing the windchills into the -30 range. However, I have announced some make up days due to all of these weather cancellations so you can still get your time in on skis!
I will send a letter as well with the following information, but here it is for now:
First day of MYSL...Yes, we have enough snow for this session, but it's freezing out there. The Wehrs have been cooped up like a family of mice, so I guess we'll have to bundle up well and get on out there! Minnesota weather gives constant gifts of danger and excitement if you look them. Like the New Years' Plunge I experienced at Lake Minnetonka on January 1st. It's my fifth jump, so I now attained the "Barracuda" rank. It was amazing to see so many young kids at the New Years' plunge. In any other state, a child being encouraged to jump into frigid water might be considered child abuse. But here it's a right of passage. I will definitely be bundling up my kids this afternoon for their first ski of the season.
