Hello Skiers and Families,
We will have an Awards Gathering to celebrate all of you East Nordic Skiers!
You and your family are invited to a gathering in the Duluth East Auditorium on Tuesday, February 28 at 6:30 p.m.
We will honor our Seniors and their Parents.
The awards that will be given out include:
Team Awards: Most Improved, Most Team Spirit, Rookie Skier of the Year, Most Valuable Skier, Captains Awards
Next year’s Captains will also be announced
We look forward to seeing you at East High School.
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!!
Outdoor Volunteer Opportunities (Plus Bib Sorting In Chalet):
Chalet Concessions Volunteer Sign Up:
This year we will be selling section 7 shirts ahead of time. Below is the flyer and this link will take you to the site for ordering. The online store will be closing Friday, January 20th at 11:59pm CST. Shirts will not be available for sale on the day of the event.
Orders will be handed out the morning of sections. While the orders will be packaged up separately per order, the orders will be collected and grouped together by team for handout. (I have attached a screenshot of the checkout so you can see an example)
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

-Salads and carrots have been popular, perhaps per the nutritionist pre-race recommendations. We are adding 1 more slot for 2 additional bags of greens/carrots.
-As a reminder, the home Duluth East Meet is February 2. There will be lots of volunteer opportunities. Save the date & watch for the sign up coming soon.
Thanks for everything! The Team Captain Parents
Congratulation skiers on another great day of skiing.
A couple of things for upcoming races:
1. If you sign up to race and then are unable to race please text Coach Nona (218-340-0443) before the race so she can communicate that information to the race timer and race starters.
2. If you are going to ride to or from the race with your parents, PLEASE, print off the travel form from our website and provide it to Coach Nona, no later than the day before the race so we know who will be riding the bus, both going to the race and returning from the race. We understand sometimes this will not be possible but would appreciate if you could try and provide us with this information before the race.
