Report from the District Sports Director Winter 2015

The 2015 District Five Family Bowling Tournament will run from January 1, 2015 until April 30, 2015. There will be five bowling categories including a Youth category for children ages 11 and under. The Bowling Tournament supports a good cause; the Sons of Norway District Five Scholarship Fund. The 2015 District Five Family Bowling Tournament information and forms can be found on the District Five website.

The 2015 Barnebirkie children’s ski race will be held on Friday, February 20, 2015 in Hayward, Wisconsin. Volunteers and cookie donations will be needed to help make the 2015 Barnebirkie a success. The Fifth District requests that all cookies that are donated to the Barnebirkie have no nuts. This is because we do not want to cause the any child that has food allergies to become sick or die due to cookies with nuts. Monetary contributions are also welcomed to help support this wonderful children’s event. The volunteer sign-up sheet for the 2015 Barnebirkie can also be found on the District Five website.    

Now is a great time to get outside to enjoy a winter sport. With the proper clothing and outdoor gear the winter season can be both exhilarating and fun. See you on the ski trail.
