Prizes for a Couple Skiers at This Saturday's NordicSkiRacer Training Sessio

Wed, Sep  5, 2007 - By Mike Muha

CASCO / GUTR Rollerski, bike, run (exercise of your choice) at Kensington Metropark

Date: Sat, Sep 8, 2007
Time: 9:00 AM
Where: Kensington Metropark, East Boat Launch Parking lot, Kent Lake Rd exit off I-96

What: Joe Gollinger of Chi-Town Sports will be giving away a pair of Casco SX-20 Sport Glasses and a Sweat Gutr Ultimate Sweatband for a couple lucky people who join use this Saturday morning for the start of fall training for cross country skiing.

Normally the Saturday morning rollerski session, today's giveaway is open to any skier who shows up with rollerskis, skates, bike, running shoes, kayak, ski poles, etc. to get in a little training in preparation for ski season.

We'll start rolling/running at 9:00. If you arrive late and don't see me, leave a note under my windshield with contact info (it's a white Honda Odyssey with "" on the back window - you can't miss it).

The drawing will be held at 11:00am (or later - depends on how long my rollerski session goes!). You do not need to be present to win. You DO need to be at the park to register

Come join the fun!


Directions: Kensington Metropark, East Boat Launch Parking lot, Kent Lake Rd exit off I-96 (west of Brighton). There are two parking lots in the East Boat Launch parking area - use the second one down the hill closer to the actual boat launch - the top parking lot gets too crowded.

More info? Contact Mike Muha at

There are several rollerski, bike, hike, etc., options: Do 8 mile laps around Kensington, head over to Island Lake and use their 5 mile out-and-back bike path, add a road section at Island Lake for additional miles, or add a section of bike path that has a mile long gentle hill along Grand River. Distances range from 8 miles and up! Your choice how far you want to go.
