Hello  Fellow SkiSkiers...

First of all, plan to bring a snack and or beverage to share at Marilyn Schulz' home this Wed., Nov. 19th at 6:00 PM. We are having our annual waxing lessons of the simplest form possible...even for those of you who do your own waxing, this is a great review. Marilyn will do the skate version and Paula Dreeszen, the classic. The directions to Marilyn's are as follows:

Our address and directions...

We live at 4422 Audubon Drive
From the Walgreens store at the bottom of Holiday hills road in Acme, proceed up Holiday hills road to an intersection of Greenwood and Huntington Drive.(there is an overhead streetlight here) ......(also, if you pass the ski resort you have gone too far) .....turn left here onto Greenwood, as you drive up the hill you will pass Cedarwood on your left......the next street to your left is Audubon Drive...turn left here and proceed straight on Audubon Drive.  As Audubon Drive crests a small incline it appears to turn left...DO NOT curve left...go straight...our home is half way down this hill on the right side of the road.....our address is on the mailbox.  I will have Christmas lights on a few small trees along the driveway.

Hope this doesn't sound too confusing....see you soon!  Marilyn

Hello All!

Brick Wheels will be bouncing this Wednesday evening, the 12th, when SheSkis arrives at 6:00 PM! There will be 20% off on everything related to XC skiing and snowshoeing! So plan to shop (and buy) to your heart's content! Need some new equipment? Here's your chance to get some good stuff!

Right at 6:00, we will gather somewhere in the store to go over a few things:

         1) RaceDingo with John O'Hearn

         2) MI Cup Update with Gussie Peterson and Melinda Mitchell

         3) Any other announcements from the group

Then, Mike Waggoner, our area SWIX rep will show us the latest and greatest in XC ski equipment, both Classic and Skate, Entry Level and Top of the Line! He will also be available for those of you who wish to talk about waxing for advanced levels....keep in mind that next week, we are having our waxing demonstrations at Marilyn Schulz' home....she and Paula Dreeszen keep it simple and waxing technique for both skate and classic skis will be covered.

There will be informal modeling throughout the evening with the lovely ladies of Brick Wheels: Betty, Kristy and Becky.

We will also each bring a snack and/or beverage (can be of the adult type) to share as we enjoy this fun evening at Brick Wheels.

Try and finish up your shopping, munching and chatting by around 7:30 so everyone gets home at a decent time.

See you Wednesday, the 12th at Brick Wheels for Brick's Bonanza!
