That's a wrap for the 2017 ME Invite! Yay for our skiers! Thanks to our team parents & Giant's Ridge volunteers for
their time & talent for the spaghetti feed & race details. Special kudo's to our key support crew at GR-
"Pepsi" Deb Maki, John Filander & Todd Roswald, & our own Mesabi East booster president- Sandy Tardiff.
Another shout out to our team photo guy- Ron Kutsi. All those fantastic action shots - are courtesy of him!!
All (we) have to do is show up. And ski fast.
Got it done!!
Results were awesome- all the way around. Our skiers produced sooo many smiles, after their race, you knew it was
a great day! It was wonderful to hear such great postitive comments from everyone. The girls team took 2nd overall,
