A Message From Your RXCSF President…

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. The RXCSF Board has been busy preparing for another Nordic season which will be here before you know it. Darren Leach has serviced all our sleds and grooming equipment, so we will be ready to go once the snow flies. Jackie Masci has been busy coordinating with our contributors in preparing this newsletter for you. As I mentioned in our May newsletter, we have started a signage initiative that we hope to implement this fall at all venues where RXCSF grooms.  Thanks to Anna Gorbold and Stina Bridgeman for leading this effort. Jason Hettenbaugh, through his Rochester Nordic Racing organization has been busy all summer leading youth development programs for the Nordic youth skiers in the region. Bob Kuehl, Donna Hickling and I have been busy addressing legal items, insurance coverages and organizational matters – not very fun summer work but essential none the less for the success of our organization. I also met with Monroe County Parks staff at Mendon Ponds Park about some of the feedback from our supporter survey earlier this spring but, also to get their input on our signage initiative.

Thank you to all who support RXCSF every year. We would not exist without you. I would also like to thank our sponsors. I encourage all our RXCSF supporters to patronize these local businesses.

Enjoy the rest of your summer everyone,

Jim Pippin
