REVISED Race Notice for Provincials Posted

A revised Race Notice for the 2019 CCS Provincial Championships hosted by the Flin Flon Ski Club, has been posted.

The Race Notice is available HERE

and Online Registration is available HERE

A few notes from the club on the race:

a) We have a time change this weekend and Flin Flon is on Manitoba time so people will lose an hour when coming to the races

b) As weather forecasts are calling for temperatures close to melting, we will be starting Sunday's race an hour earlier at 10 am in order to provide optimum race conditions and to help get people travelling on the road earlier.
