It was great to see so many familiar faces from the Divide at PCEI yesterday! We kicked off our fundraiser/raffle by raising $1,344. If you were there, you saw the ski package that Hyperspud has generously donated to the winner!
We will be selling raffle tickets until we draw a winner on December 15 -- just in time for the snow to start falling! You can get them wherever we show up with a booth -- farmers markets and gear swaps this autumn -- or you can get them on our new and improved website (Thanks, Andy and Lisa!): https://palousedividenordic.org/. $5 per ticket or 5 for $20! While you’re there, you can also renew your club membership. Soon, you'll be able to see ski reports there too!
The most exciting news is that we met the entire match from our anonymous donor with the money raised yesterday! Much thanks to the donor for starting us off with a bang! Even better, dear friends of the club (and long-time members) Scotty and Diane Cornelius have offered to match up to $2,500 of money we raise through October! So every $5 from you, brings $10 toward our new snowmobile! If you already like your skis and don't want raffle tickets, Scotty and Diane's challenge includes all other donations to the club too!
More news on plans for the Divide coming soon!
