Our Ski Club’s 2013 multi-generational Family Fun Race Day was held on Saturday, March 9. Although we had beautiful sunny skies, our race was delayed by wind holds on the lifts. Our racers patiently chatted in the sun room or took a few runs while waiting for the race to start. The race finally started at 1:30pm.

This year we had a total of 39 racers! Congratulations to all participants and to all families! Congratulations to the Wilkins family who had the most family members participating, with the Trefry family running a close second.

Racers and non-racers enjoyed a pasta dinner buffet at Sequoia Woods Country Club in Blue Lake Springs. After dinner, the awards were presented and it was a great evening. Great food, great fun, and great time with friends and family!

Mark from West World Images was available to photograph the racers as in previous years, but unfortunately this year was not able to wait until the wind hold was lifted.
