Tuesday Night Worlds Finals

Sadly this year, we were reduced to one dirty fairway of snow, but it was snow nonetheless and so the costume ski and banquet dinner was held.  Why only last year we were still skiing on a 2 km loop!  Last night the snow was melting beneath our collective skis as we did 3 lap sprints in a somewhat disorganized but fun fashion.  The costumes were to be of your favorite??? politician.  Ghandi almost made me forget the infamous and searingly etched-in-my-brain-forever Russian weightlifter of several years back.  It was fortunate for Mohatma that it was a warm evening!  After the sprints we retired inside for a good dinner and awards for all the winners, age group winners, most improved and costume winners and had to put up with several stump speeches from the politicians.  The younger Bernie speech was quite excellent, something about all the high flouros going to the 1% and the need for more equitable distribution of such flouro wealth.  Sarah Palin, as always, was a crowd pleaser and of course had the best Minnesotan accent, coming by it naturally.  

A fun night with skiing friends as we ring out the frustrating winter of 2015-2016.  May the weather be better next year!
