Nordic Rocks Skis Are Here
The Vasa Ski Club expands cross country skiing in the tip of the mitten. 100 pair of Nordic Rock skis will be used by 13 elementary schools in the ski clubs region. The attached photo is of Lakeland Elementary school principal Bryan McKenna, Vasa Ski Club Junior Ski Coach Randy Smith, and science Teacher Kip Knight as they launch the program in Elk Rapids.
In January and February TCAPS will be circulating 2 sets of Nordic Rock skis as part of the educational exercise efforts and parents can sign up their middle school kids for an after school program at Timber Ridge through January 6th by going to the Vasaskiclub.org. web site. The Vasa Ski Club is a learn-to-ski, adult ski, and race ski community in Northwest Michigan based in Traverse City. Go VASA.
