Huron Meadows Groomer Party, April 2
The Frosty Freestyle raised over $3,000 for Huron Meadows Metropark. The check will be officially presented to the park at the 3rd Annual Groomers Appreciation Party on Saturday, April 2 at the Huron Meadows clubhouse at 11:30am.
It’s the time of year to thank the people who made great skiing at Huron Meadows Metropark possible. For those of you who ski in Southeastern Michigan you were again able to experience the fantastic grooming at Huron Meadows Metropark.
The people responsible for creating these conditions go above and beyond their jobs in making sure that every possible skiable day is made available to us through their hard work.
This year, we’ve had snow created for us from frozen lakes, ski trails created along fence lines, and grooming after storms with gale force winds. Some snowstorms required over 40 hours of grooming to get you great conditions. Work often begins at 4:00 a.m.!
Whether you’re a racer or a recreational skier; if you like to ski you owe a debt of gratitude to the groomers. So, it’s time to thank these people for their hard work.
Please R.S.V.P. to Ken Roth at Kroth43860@aol.com by March 31st if you are attending. It is important that people R.S.V.P.
We are requesting a donation at the door of $8 per person to offset the cost of the food and a small recognition award for the groomers. Any money collected above those costs will be donated back to the Huron Meadows grooming fund.
We will provide pizza, salad, and non-alcoholic beverages. Feel free to bring any additional food items you wish. If we have beautiful weather, we’ll hold the event outside in a pavilion.
We’ll have lunch, talk about the ski season, and then express our
appreciation for the hard work done by the HMMP team. Mike Muha will also formally present his donation to the Huron Meadows fund!
