BKL Wed, Feb 24– practice is on, drive safe!

I think the driving should be fine on the main roads…don;t know about back roads. chow! h On Mon, Feb 22, 2016 at 9:10 PM, Hans Estrin <hansestrin@gmail.com> wrote: > Dear Skiers, > > While most perfectly sane people will be snuggled in their warm houses > whining about the miserable weather outside, and the general failings of > the 2016 “winter”, we the fearless Putney BKL will be boldly staging a wild > and crazy skimeister practice at Living Memorial Park in Brattleboro!. > > > Bring skate or waxless skis. just one pair of skis will do fine!
