News and Announcements
Parents, grandparents, friends and supporters – we are in need of more volunteers for the Duluth East Invite. We would especially appreciate help from Junior Varsity and Junior High supporters so the Varsity supporters can watch their favorite varsity skier in the pursuit race. Hopefully in a year or so you will be the varsity supporter and others will help you be able to watch your skier. This is such a fun event you won’t want to miss an opportunity to be part of it.
Also, the concessions at the race contribute to and help support the East Nordic team. Funds are used to purchase the waxes used at races, purchase race uniforms and so forth. With the colder temps this weekend, it is a great time for supporters to make a baked treat for concessions or whip up a hearty soup to serve at the concession. Additional people are also needed to bake potatoes for the hot potato bar.

Thanks so much for your support.
The 2023 Duluth East Invite is fast approaching on February 2. Lots of volunteers are needed to make our home meet a great success! It’s a great way to bond with fellow Nordic Ski parents, while supporting the team! No experience is needed – a quick training is provided & there are a variety of tasks – something for everyone! Thanks in advance for your help!!
