The theme will be "P Party".
Think ANYTHING that starts with the letter "P" (Body Parts, Animals, or Foods, or ???)
Think outside the box, be outrageous, be sexy, be fun, be YOU !
We have had a lot of interest over the last couple of years in Nordic events.
We have arranged for a one day Nordic Camp at Haymaker Nordic Center.
The "camp" will offer two training sessions where Nordic coaches will work with all levels. This is an opportunity for those that have little to no Nordic experience to learn and those with any Nordic experience to fine tune your skills.
The objective it for ALL of the NAASF teams to have a more prominent position in future World Airline Ski Championships.
You can participate in one, two, or all three training sessions; and/or you can just practice on your own; and/or you can just show up for the race.
The race will a 5k or 10K JUST FOR FUN !!
Haymaker offers rental equipment, so all you need to do,is show up.
