The Viking Helmet Championship Series continues…
This past week, members of Peru Nordic gathered to compete in the Let’s Make a Deal Race. Skiers skied two short laps before deciding whether to ski a 4 km lap for time, or take 15:00. Then, skiers had to select the time prize from behind curtain #1, curtain #2 or curtain #3.
Jim Kobak had the fastest time on the day, but was unlucky by picking the “clunker” behind curtain #2 (adding half his age in seconds to his time). This allowed Chris Rose to move into the top spot. Rose picked curtain #1 which allowed him to subtract his age in seconds from his time. Rose also carried a purse, and was able to produce a set of nail clippers, some lip gloss, one earring and a canadian dime when prompted by host, Monty Hall, for 30 bonus seconds.
There was an epic battle for third place, with Bailey, Moffett and Mitchell all finishing within a minute of each other. Bailey picked curtain #3 which earned him as many bonus seconds as the last two digits of his home address, 83 huge seconds.
The LP Crew of Santor, Maswick and Ross had a much tougher course, and wound up finishing in the bottom of the group. At least they got to take home a few parting gifts.
The VHCS continues this week with the Masters National Championship 10 km race in Craftsbury. Skiers not attending that race can ski a 10 km course at MitcHELLbeiner or MVH… assuming the rain does not wash all the snow away.
