YOU NEED TO KNOW RIGHT NOW…
Like every Polar Roll before it this year has presented unique challenges. At least it isn’t raining or dumping three feet of snow… yet. Don’t worry we still have 10-days… lots of time for things to get worse Kidding aside… there are a few things you need to know.
The groomers have been struggling to keep what we have open. Snow and high wind have been wreaking havoc on things. They go out and groom only to wake up the next day and the trail is gone. My best guess is that the short course will be around 16-17 miles and the long will be about 26. We are going to pick up a snowdog tomorrow and offer the groomers a couple extra hands to stay on top of it between now and the event.
Packet pickup will be bare bones. You can find us at the Westwood Mall (you have to go around to the back side). Go inside, grab your bib, and head over to Blackrocks. No vendors. No dog and pony show. Merchandise will be available online shortly after the event on a pre-order basis.
No after party, but we’d appreciate it if you would stop by Barrel + Beam and tell em’ Polar Roll sent ya. They’re great folks and we had a fun night planned before deciding not to gather. Buckles and medallions will be mailed after the event. I’ll touch on packet pickup and the after party. Sometimes doing the hard thing means doing the right thing, and by right I mean considering the impact of your actions on others. I don’t know about yours but our local healthcare system but ours has been under extreme pressure. We’re not looking at doing anything to make it worse. Saturday is our party and we have all-day. Bacon and Hugs and 450 of your best friends will be out there with ya.
