It was great to see many of you (including Great Brook skiers, EMN Jrs and high school skiers) at EMBK’s Classic Invitational race this Sunday. Beautiful weather, conditions, smiles and skiing – all great! If you didn’t make it to the race, we hope that your skier enjoyed the snow at Weston Ski Track or another location.
Somehow we pulled off this race with less than a week of planning. Thank you so much to the parent volunteers who showed up early on Sunday morning to help out with: bibs, course set up, start area, timing, lap counting, medical support and crosswalk support – we couldn’t do it without you! Shout out to Sarah Lynch, our patient wax leader and her wax volunteers. Once again, thank you to Chris Li for his timing expertise and race planning. A special thanks to Jim Stock (who was on site at 5:30 am to check on grooming) for his leadership and all of our dedicated coaches. Thanks again to members of our Covid safety team (especially Jonathan Brenner and Erin Lake) for keeping these events safe. Important to also mention appreciation for DCR and CRR for our special ski track and grooming.
Thank you to Oleg Kovalenko for these photos.

It was great to see you at the EMBK Sprints this weekend. Sun, smiles and skiing – good times! Thank you to parents who brought your skiers out for a fun race. Special thanks to all of our parent volunteers who came out to help with the many moving parts on this weekend and extra Covid safety needs. What a community! We would like to send out a special thanks to Chris Li for his planning, race timing and results, and his team of timers. Thanks to Jim Stock, our fearless leader, and our dedicated coaches. Thanks to members of our Covid safety team (and especially to Jonathan Brenner and Erin Lake) for helping make this event safe and fun. Shout out to all who brought us music, fun commentary, candy and helped us get bibs to and off our kids. We can’t forget the planning crew for the event – Caitlin, Josh, Kris, Jonathan, Josie, Erica, Jim, Erin, and Chris. Dee and Leona managed our registration. Thanks to Josie for her leadership. We are grateful for our crowd and start managers and our doctors who volunteered their time.
