2nd annual Huron Meadows groomer appreciation party, March 27

Tue, Mar  23, 2010 - By Ken Roth

It’s the time of year to thank the people who made great skiing at Huron Meadows Metropark possible.  For those of you who ski in Southeastern Michigan you were again able to experience fantastic grooming conditions at Huron Meadows Metropark. 

The people responsible for creating these conditions go above and beyond their jobs in making sure that every possible skiable day is made available through great grooming.  Some snowstorms required over 40 hours of grooming to get you great conditions!  So, it’s time to thank these people for their hard work.

The 2nd annual groomer appreciation party will be held at the Huron Meadows Metropark clubhouse March 27th at 11:30.  Please R.S.V.P. to Ken Roth at by March 25th if you are attending.  It is important that people R.S.V.P. 

We are requesting a donation at the door of $8 per person to offset the cost of the food and  small recognition awards for the groomers.  Any money collected above those costs will be donated back to the Huron Meadows grooming fund.

We will provide pizza, salad, and non-alcoholic beverages.  Feel free to bring any additional food items you wish.  If we have beautiful weather, we’ll hold the event outside in a pavilion.

We’ll have lunch, talk about the ski season, and then express our appreciation for the hard work done by the HMM team.  Mike Muha will also formally present the proceeds from the Frosty Freestyle race to the Huron Meadows xc ski fund!

Now, here’s the guilt trip part.  Remember what skiing in Southeastern Michigan looked like before we had the grooming at HMM?  It was a pretty sorry picture.  The people who provided us with great conditions need to know that their work is being recognized.  The Park system needs to know that skiers appreciate this work.  If you don’t come to the party and great grooming goes away, you’ll have no one to blame but yourself, and you’ll miss a good time as well! 

Looking forward to seeing all of you.  I promise, no more guilt trips .
