2019 Vasa Newsletter Vol. III, No. 1

Vasa Newsletter - Octoberfest Edition - Haley’s Comments


October 15, 2018

Greetings Vasa Nation!

We are still on our bikes in northern Michigan, but looking forward to the transition to skis. You need get over to our website - www.vasa.org - to access Registration. The first price increase is already happening on October 16. You are thinking, “Wait a minute here, October 15. Isn’t that, like, today?? You would be right, so Register NOW - and save.

The course maps and wave times are all posted on our website as well. Vasa 2019 will be run in a “clockwise” direction this time. (Millennials and others who are only familiar with digital displays may need to Google “clockwise”.)

Vasa welcomes back both Short’s Brewing and Chemical Bank as title sponsors. The people at Short’s and Chemical Bank are just the best. They don’t just write a check for the sponsorship. They are genuinely interested in skiing and biking, so their employees wind up doing an awful lot of volunteer work for us. Very cool.

We welcome the Blue Tractor as our new food sponsor too. When we approached them to provide soup for the skiers and fat tire bikers on Saturday and Sunday after each race, they went ahead and offered to just flat-out donate two of their great signature soups for all race participants. It will be HOT, and it will be GOOD, I can assure you.

Think snow, folks. See you next time.


Mike Haley, President
