It is late Tuesday afternoon and I have yet to write our blog, too many meetings on Tuesdays! We have a very exciting weekend of events to share with you.

On Saturday we are hosting the Mountain Dew Vertical Challenge on the Silver Doctor. This is a fun race and can involve everyone in the family. This is a free event with lots of prizes and give-a-ways! There are many different age categories and team pairings. Those that qualify will be eligible to advance to the finals, to be held at Loon March 27th. Bring your family and your friends because this race is for everyone.

Saturday at the Swig'n Smelt Pub, we will have some apr'es ski entertainment provided by Bill Cameron. He is entertaining and will begin his performance at 3:30.

Sunday is Veteran's Day at Saddleback. This is a day that we salute all veterans from all branches of the armed services. Veterans will receive a free lift ticket on that day, January 10th. We have a marching band and bag pipers planned. There will be a brief ceremoney in the fireplace room at about noon Sunday, to honor all that served. Please bring a military ID to obtain your free lift ticket. We will have members of all branches of military, many different ages and folks who participated in many different conflicts. It should be a very nice event.

I am off tomorrow, so no blogs on Wednesdays. If you would like to contact me, send your thoughts to cklefos@saddlebackmaine.com .
