    Donations in memory of Doug Knutson

    Doug was supportive of the Nordic Clubs in Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Girdwood. He passed away peacefully, and in lieu of flowers, Doug's Family has suggested donations towards a necessary bridge replacement along the xc trails here in Girdwood.  To donate you can send a check (PO Box 337, Girdwood AK 99587) or go to the page: and click BOTH "Funds" and "Other" to input both amount and the text "Doug's Bridge".  We are honored.  Thank you Donna and Family for your continued support!

    Nordic Loop, Upper meadows and Moose meadow
    Peter and I groomed a BUNCH of snow this morning - all groomable trails were done, including classic tracks. The corduroy is very soft but should set up in a couple of hours. Thanks to John for going out yesterday to knock the air out of the snow - that really helped. Jim
