Thu, Jan  28, 2010 - By Jack McKaig

In no particular order...

Food

Skiers! Your bib and $10 will get you a spaghetti dinner at the Lakeside Dining Room at Shanty Creek Resort on the Friday night before the race (Bib holders only, not their entire party). As in the past, breakfast will be available at the high school starting location from 7:am until 10:am.

Child Care

On race day child care will be provided for skiers who need the service. It will be operated by the National Honor Society from Mancelona High School. Child care will open at 8:00am Saturday morning at Mancelona High School. Donations to the National Honor Society will be accepted; a snack will be provided for your child but NOT a full lunch.

Showers

Also, after your event, $5 and your bib will get you a shower in the Fitness Center at Shanty Creek Resort. Fresh snow is expected this week. Register now.

Waxing

There will be two opportunities for waxing with this year's Stampede. Nic Baic will conduct a waxing workshop, Friday night at Shanty Creek Resort, Parlor 'G'. Nic is a recognized TOKO Wax instructor and is offering his years' of experience to all who want to share. Waxes will not be available so bring your own and your waxing gear. Space for waxing will be available.

Saturday morning all that is offered is a tarp covering a corner of the floor. No waxes or benches are available. Plan on minimal waxing here.

Featuring Short's Brewing Company

The White Pine Stampede welcomes Short's Brewing Company of Bellaire as a sponsor of this year's event. A brew from Short's will be featured at this year's skiers' gathering prior to the awards, Saturday afternoon.

Vidoe and photos

Look for more photographers and vidiographers on the course this year as a video production of the Stampede will be posted at various places on the internet shortly after the event.
