Says Ann Wagar, "The Meijer Forbush Freestyle race was a big success with lots of smiling skiers before and after the race, especially while enjoying the delicious post race food. The food was prepared by Mike Everts from Blackbird gardens catering. The soup and chili was very tasty and very healthy. It was wonderful to see all 98 participants enjoying the trails. Thank you for racing with us, the Forbush Clan."
