IN MEMORIAM: George Meredith a longtime friend of the Vasa passed away on Feb 25th. He was a professional photographer and videographer who interviewed many of our skiers over the years. He recently “shot” still photos of all skiers in this year’s Saturday races in spite of the incredibly cold temperatures which played havoc with the cameras. George loved the great outdoors and all it entailed. He shot a documentary on the Leelanau Ice Caves last year that was picked up nationally and he did an incredible job on the Vasa 35th anniversary video in 2011 when he interviewed Vojin Baic, Ted Okerstrom, George Lombard and many others. We will miss him as a friend and supporter.

February 14, 2015 6:00 PM North American Vasa Sunday Events Thank you to all who participated in a successful day of ski and bike racing. It was hard work for skiers and workers alike. But the enthusiasm evidenced by so many of you certainly contributed to a very positive atmosphere. We plan to run all events as scheduled for Sunday. While winds are predicted to be greatly reduced, it will be cold again making skier and worker preparedness is very important. In the unlikely event that weather conditions deteriorate overnight such that adjustments are required a morning update will be sent. Thank you, Mark Esper
