Gromit the Trail Dog posted this 2010 photo of the KNSC moonlight ski and bonfire. "I'm in my glory...in the middle of all the kids!" she says. The event will happen again this Saturday, Dec. 3, despite lack of snow. (Photo courtesy Gromit, from her Trail Mutt Reports blog)
HANCOCK -- Keweenaw Nordic Ski Club's moonlight ski and bonfire will take place as scheduled at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3. Because of lack of snow, the event will be moved to the Chalet, located at the Houghton County Fair Grounds/Hancock Driving Park. KNSC will provide refreshments and a light meal to say "thanks" to the numerous trail supporters and volunteers.
For the evening's special entertainment, all skiers will perform the Heikki Lunta dance so trail grooming and skiing can commence soon. And, of course, a fire will be going.
"Woof!" says Gromit. "We had so much fun (last year), we're doing it again!"
If anyone would care to see how to train your very own trail mutt, a quick demonstration will precede the dancing. This event is open to the public, but RSVP by email or phone is required. You can RSVP or ask questions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Arlyn and Sandy Aronson at 906-370-2911 (work) or 906-487-9229 (home).
Gromit did most photos from past moonlight bonfires on her adventure blog. She also reports on trail work and improvements and fun in the snow. See her trail mutt reports at http://trailmuttreports.blogspot.com/.
