The Duluth Inivite is Friday, Jan. 25th at Snowflake in Duluth, and the last meet is Jan. 31 in Ely.  Both meets conduct the Pursuit Race, and our V and along with some JV skiers will utilize everything they've got.  Our JV, JH & Newbie teams also race on these Pursuit days, as they have seperate races for these age divisions also.
