Volunteers Needed for 2016 U.S. Skiing Championships

Volunteers are still needed for the 2016 U.S. Skiing Championships hosted by Michigan Tech at its on-campus Nordic Training Center Jan. 3-9. The event will consist of four race days: classic distance races on Jan. 3, freestyle sprint races on Jan. 4, freestyle distance races on Jan. 7 and classic sprints on Jan. 9. The website, NordicChampionship.org, has full race details and volunteer registration. Volunteers are needed for race registration and check-in, at the start and finish areas, on the course to help with crowd crossing and before and after the events to set up and tear down. With the help of a supportive community and network of volunteers, Michigan Tech has successfully hosted the U.S. Skiing Championships three times previously: 2007, 2008 and 2015. Questions regarding volunteering can be directed to Emily Fiala fiala@pasty.com.
