An NL Cup event
The 15th annual Gander Invitational Ski Meet is on for March 2-3. Please note the new date. The GI is again part of the Newfoundland Cup Series and is a 2 day event. Saturday will be sprints. A seeding time trial will take place first, followed by 3 rounds of “King’s court” format races. Sunday’s competitive event will follow last year’s Gander Invitational format and race route which is focused on the Gold trail with freestyle (skating) categories for the 3.15km, 6.3km and 9.5km distances. The recreational classic and freestyle categories will ski a different course (the Red trail), one lap for the 3.4km and 2 laps for the 6.8km.
