We have a form that you can use if you lost something at the recent State Meet or ended up with something in your possession that does not belong to you. To submit a lost or found notice, follow this link to the Google Forms page . We’ll try to match up what we can and also communicate with the League if necessary to find the right partner for the equipment. Obviously, the more information you can provide on your submission, the better. Size, brand, color, etc are good to include.
Posted Saturday at 9:10 AM
All races have been delayed an additonal one hour to 11:00 AM this morning. The temperatures at 10:00 AM are going to be too cold for a legal start.
We are happy to announce that the Wisconsin Nordic Ski League State Championships will be available for viewing on the internet on a live basis. Plus, you will be able to pull up the competition later and watch it again and again. To find the Livestream broadcast, go to Livestream Link

Some of the major donors were several of the teams including 4591 Sports Development, ,Blackhawk Nordic, Madnorski, Chippewa Valley Nordic and Wausau Nordic Ski Club. Thanks to all our contributors for making this possible.
The start list for Saturday has been posted at the following link:
You can use this site to access all results throughout the weekend. As you may know already, the start time for Saturday has been pushed back to allow temperatures to get a few degrees warming, hopefully. The HS Boys will go first and start at 10:00 AM. You can view the complete weekend schedule bl clicking on the Schedule link above.
Entries have all been submitted and it appears that we will have the largest field of skiers at the State Meet ever. There are over 450 registered skiers that includes 146 HS Boys ad 135 HS Girls. The Middle School will have over 175 skiers and there are two sit-ski adaptive skiers as well. The entry lists for the State Meet have been posted on the Performance Timing website.

Start lists with start times for each skier for Saturday will be posted on Thursday evening.
In anticipation of some cold temperatures at 9:00 AM, we are going to push the start of the High School Boys race back one hour to 10:00 AM. To keep things moving, we will also close up the start interval for the High School races to 15 seconds as opposed to the originally scheduled 30 second intervals. Please check the schedule for the races on our website. Start lists for Saturday will be posted on Thursday evening. At this time, there is no plans to alter the start time for Sunday.
Many of our fine sponsors have donated items that will be raffled off at the State Meet once again. You can choose to enter one for a pair of Yoko Skis donated by Finn Sisu or a for a fat bike donated by Cheqaumegon Adventure Company. There are many other prizes that will be given away as well including two Blitz eyewear items, a Toko wax bench, a One-Way water belt and other neat stuff. Tickets can be purchased from any WNDG member and at the State Meet. The final drawings will be held at the Awards Ceremony on Sunday of the State Meet. Contact John at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to arrange a purchase.
Wonder what the first State Meet looked like? Thanks to Ken and Pam Schoville, we have some idea with the newspaper clippings from the Lakeland Times with coverage of the first meet held at Winter Park. Take a look and see if you recognize any names in the list of competitors in the hand-written final results.

Check out the video posted by the Birkie and Ben Popp talking about the snowmaking at the Birkie Start Area. This is something to look forward to this coming season, not only for the Birkie itself, but for the State Meet as well. If you want to get an early test on the snow, remember they are running their Double-Pole Derby over the Christmas break.
