We have missed the input and energy of other nordic skiers. We should actively pursue one or two board members who are connected to back country skiing and to telemark skiing. The purpose is twofold. First, we should do what we can to share our voice on issues these skiers may have with trails, land use, hunting and other things on the political front. Secondly, we may be missing an energetic source of activity that helps give us momentum. Both backcountry and tele skiers are are at least as fanatical as trail skiers, but to the best of my knowledge, are complete unrepresented as a group.
I have approached Brian Murphy, Madison about this. Brian is formerly of Life Tools here in Green Bay and is closely tied with the annual TeleFest in the Porkies. He is thinking it over.
