Information from the race director:

   We are very sorry to report that the rescheduled Friends of Neshota Park 2nd Annual Snowshoe race this Saturday has been cancelled. Mother Nature just has not been cooperative. With all the rain, the trails are already flooded and the river is expected to "break" before the weekend.

Because this race was a fund raiser for our playground, it is not possible for us to refund registration fees (charitable contribution). However, we really want to see all of you next year. So, we are making a special offer. If you stop by Neshota Park on Saturday between 8:30 and 10:00 a.m., we will give you your race shirt for this year and a coupon to register for next year's race at a $15 cost (to cover the cost of the shirt for next year). If you cannot make next year's race, you can pass this coupon to a friend. Please email me if you cannot pick up your shirt on Saturday morning (or if one of your fellow shoers cannot pick it up for you).

Again, we are very sorry to have to cancel the race and hope all of you will continue to support our snowshoe race and the Friends of Neshota Park. Next Friends meeting will be at 6:30p.m. on March 20th at Neshota Park Shelter. Hope you can join us.
