Hanson Hills managed to put on a fun 6 hour relay Saturday, despite somewhat marginal snow in spots. Fortunately, the recent storm allowed the race to run, the first since the Nordic Fest sprint race on October 22, 2011.

The new date for the WinterSonnenwende fits nicely with the Michigan Cup schedule for a number of reasons. The only negative is that it won't count as a Junior Race as it conflicts with the Michigan High School Championships.

With the impending weather forecast of minimal snow, the viability of pulling off the WinterSonnenwende next weekend (December 17) decreases daily. I am hopeful, but also realistic.
