Jason Bartley won for the men with a time of 17:21 and Abigail Streinz took home first place for the women with a time 20:22. Madawaska Nordic founding father, Reno Deprey, was on hand and donned bib #86, proudly representing his age as he toured the course with his wife, Becky. Both Reno and Becky graciously provided raffle prizes for the race, along with Lyn Michaud
Dawn Bragdon and her helpers held the first youth ski practice of the season. Dawn has rented over 50 pairs of skis to the youth in our community. Despite very cold temperatures, many showed up!
