After four races, Team NordicSki gains the lead in the Brumbaug Cup, followed by Hanson Hills / Cross Country Ski Shop and the Grand Rapids Nordic Ski Team. Vasa Ski Club dropped from first to fourth.
New rosters from Vasa, NSR and GRSNT were included. Updated rosters from HHCCSS, XCHQ and UM have not been received yet so we are still using last years. As usual points from the first two races changed slightly as people were added to teams.

The Michigan Cup Series has three team awards: The Baic Cup for best junior team, the Brumbaugh Cup for best senior team, and the Michigan Cup for the best overall team.
The Brumbaugh Cup is a team scored competition with each designated race counting each team’s top 5 senior male skiers and top 3 senior female skiers. It is scored like a cross-country running event with first place receiving 1 point; down through the max of 35 male skiers (7 teams x 5 skiers) and 21 female skiers (7 teams x 3 skiers). The lowest point total wins each race and the lowest point total of all designated races wins the Brumbaugh Cup. The designated Brumbaugh races include those races where there is a single Michigan Cup points paying event.
This year, the Brumbaugh Cup scoring will be done by Team NordicSkiRacer's Kyle Hanson and Jay Woodbeck. They have created an automated spreadsheet that calculates the Brumbaugh points going forward and hope it allows thm to turn around the points within the day they receive results.
