The Empire States Winter Games are going to be scheduled, at least for now, for February 2nd through the 5th. This is a Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There was much discussion between the chair’s of each of the winter sports and the Lake Placid Planning committee. This past week through a phone conference the decision was made to go ahead with the dates listed earlier. Throughout the summer and early fall plans will be put in place to set up a race schedule that will be challenging to all. One of the details that will have to be resolved will be the Lake Placid Loppet. This 50 km. race is scheduled to take place on February 4th. For us to have a two day event, we will need to come up with something that will allow our racers to compete on two days and that will also not force people to stay in Lake Placid the entire time. More news will be posted as soon as a schedule has been put in place.
