With the Cote Dame Marie behind us, Hanson Hills / Cross Country Ski Shop moved into first place, dropping Team NordicSkiRacer into second. The Vasa Ski Club displaced the Grand Rapids Nordic Ski Team to take over third.
The preliminary rosters from each team were finally available so some of the scores for prior races changed slightly.

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.
