Lakeland Locals Learn To Ski For Free! (12:30 pm)

Lakeland Locals Learn to Ski for Free!
Minocqua Winter Park, 7543 Squirrel Hill Rd,Minocqua
Sundays - Through March 8, 2015 Arrive 12:30 pm, lesson 1:00 - 2:00 pm

Tired of face-plants, wet gloves, and soggy attitudes about cross-country skiing? Minocqua Winter Park & Nordic Center invites local residents to discover the fun and beauty of striding gliding with its Lakeland Locals Learn to Ski for Free program.
Scope, Eligibility, & Funding

Cross-country skiing is a lifetime sport—if you start off on the right ski boot. Recognizing that 90% of people who stick with the sport had quality instruction, Minocqua Winter Park has partnered with its Ski Shop & Ski School to offer a program to (re)introduce community members to Nordic skiing.

All residents of Oneida, Vilas, Price, and Iron Counties are eligible to enroll. Children must be at least 8 years-old, and children 8-12 years-old must be accompanied by an adult.

Lakeland Locals Learn to Ski for Free is funded by generous donations, private grants, and fundraising events at Minocqua Winter Park, including ski and snowshoe races and Inga Lami of the Northwoods women’s ski and snowshoe gathering.
Benefits

Locals Learn to Ski for Free consists of a free Minocqua Winter Park ski trail pass, free ski equipment rental from the MWP Ski Shop & Ski School, and a 1-hour lesson from a professional instructor. Our friends and experienced skiers are often available after the ski lesson to volunteer their time to lead new skiers on short, guided tours of our Winter Park ski trails.

One short lesson can turn your cross-country skiing experiences from cold, wet, frustrating fits into amazing, fun adventures. Nearly all of the 60 participants of last year’s program improved their technique and attitude towards skiing.
Sessions

Conditions permitting, there will be a total of eight sessions, occurring on Sundays, January 11 – March 8. Each session will be limited to 10 skiers. Interested participants must call the Winter Park chalet at (715) 356-3309 to reserve a space in the program. Ski classes will last from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m., and we recommend that students arrive in the chalet no later than 12:30 p.m. on the day of their lesson to allow ample time for equipment set-up.
Directions

To get to Minocqua Winter Park from US Hwy 51, turn onto Wisconsin Hwy 70 West and travel 6.8 miles. Then turn left onto Squirrel Lake Road and go 4.5 miles to Scotchman Lake Road and follow the signs into the park via Squirrel Hill Road.




Contact Info : Please contact Minocqua Winter Park & Nordic Center to reserve a spot in the next available session of Lakeland Locals Learn to Ski for Free or to simply get more information about this program or cross-country skiing in general.

In 1957 THE DIAMONDS released an instant million selling hit called Little Darlin’. The song continues to sell worldwide and has been dubbed “the National Anthem of Rock and Roll”. To date it has sold approximately 20 million copies.
Through the years since the release of Little Darlin’ THE DIAMONDS have learned one important lesson—the durability of this classic rock and roll music is as much about the future as it is about the past. As a result, THE DIAMONDS continue to expand their audience to this day, performing in a variety of venues and settings worldwide. These performances include—with Symphony Orchestras, in Performing Arts Theatres and major concert halls, on cruise ships, in casinos, at county and state fairs, on tours of England, Ireland, Brazil, Chile, Korea, and Japan, for benefit concerts, corporate conventions and at nightclubs. “We’ve been pleased to find a growing audience among all age groups. They love songs they can understand, remember and actually sing the words to—today, tomorrow, or even 20 years from now.

Take a walk down memory lane with one of the iconic rock 'n' roll bands from those early years.  These guys haven't lost a note and you'll remember all of the words!  Let's rock the auditorium.....  Adults $20, Students $10.

Their music ranges from the golden oldies of the 1950s (The Everly Brothers and Elvis Presley) all the way up to present day alternative rock/folk (Sarah McLaughlan, Jewel, Jimmy Buffett,John Prine). Most of their music comes directly from the tumultuous era of the late 1960s and early 1970s, with artists such as Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Janis Joplin.

Lakeland Locals Learn To Ski For Free! (12:30 pm)

Lakeland Locals Learn to Ski for Free!
Minocqua Winter Park, 7543 Squirrel Hill Rd,Minocqua
Sundays - Through March 8, 2015 Arrive 12:30 pm, lesson 1:00 - 2:00 pm

Tired of face-plants, wet gloves, and soggy attitudes about cross-country skiing? Minocqua Winter Park & Nordic Center invites local residents to discover the fun and beauty of striding gliding with its Lakeland Locals Learn to Ski for Free program.
Scope, Eligibility, & Funding

Cross-country skiing is a lifetime sport—if you start off on the right ski boot. Recognizing that 90% of people who stick with the sport had quality instruction, Minocqua Winter Park has partnered with its Ski Shop & Ski School to offer a program to (re)introduce community members to Nordic skiing.

All residents of Oneida, Vilas, Price, and Iron Counties are eligible to enroll. Children must be at least 8 years-old, and children 8-12 years-old must be accompanied by an adult.

Lakeland Locals Learn to Ski for Free is funded by generous donations, private grants, and fundraising events at Minocqua Winter Park, including ski and snowshoe races and Inga Lami of the Northwoods women’s ski and snowshoe gathering.
Benefits

Locals Learn to Ski for Free consists of a free Minocqua Winter Park ski trail pass, free ski equipment rental from the MWP Ski Shop & Ski School, and a 1-hour lesson from a professional instructor. Our friends and experienced skiers are often available after the ski lesson to volunteer their time to lead new skiers on short, guided tours of our Winter Park ski trails.

One short lesson can turn your cross-country skiing experiences from cold, wet, frustrating fits into amazing, fun adventures. Nearly all of the 60 participants of last year’s program improved their technique and attitude towards skiing.
Sessions

Conditions permitting, there will be a total of eight sessions, occurring on Sundays, January 11 – March 8. Each session will be limited to 10 skiers. Interested participants must call the Winter Park chalet at (715) 356-3309 to reserve a space in the program. Ski classes will last from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m., and we recommend that students arrive in the chalet no later than 12:30 p.m. on the day of their lesson to allow ample time for equipment set-up.
Directions

To get to Minocqua Winter Park from US Hwy 51, turn onto Wisconsin Hwy 70 West and travel 6.8 miles. Then turn left onto Squirrel Lake Road and go 4.5 miles to Scotchman Lake Road and follow the signs into the park via Squirrel Hill Road.

WinMan Windigo 5K/10K Snowshoe Stomp (1:00 pm - 2:00 pm)

WinMan Windigo 5K/10K Snowshoe Stomp
Lakeland Discovery Center, Manitowish Waters
Sunday February 15, 2015 1:00 pm

The WinMan Trails are an ideal trail system for a snowshoe race.  According to Trails Coordinator Robert Polic, they work well due to the 8 to 14 foot wide, groomed trails.  He notes the trails “have a firm smooth surface with good width for passing.  There’s also enough mileage to support a 10K race without having to repeat sections of trail.”  In addition, the site offers beautiful views and plenty of nature to explore.  The rolling topography of the site is compliments of years of glacial activity.  The land features not only interesting terrain, but also a rich and varied ecological diversity.  Wildlife sightings and sign this year have included rarities such as badger and moose.  On race day, keep your eyes out for the elusive “Windigo”!

The race is for those wanting to push their times and compete as well as for the less competitive racers.  Custom-made awards will go to the fastest three women and men in the 5K & 10K races.  To bring in an added and fun challenge, coordinators have added an optional Windigo Fur Hunters class where participants seek out Windigos along the course attempting to snatch locks of their fur.  In addition, there will be a non-competitive kids race, a big vat of fire-roasted chili, beer and hot cocoa, and Windigo stories around the fire.  Windigos are half-beast creatures in the legends of the Algonquian peoples of the Great Lakes region. Imagine an aggressive Sasquatch that loves to eat humans... and that gets especially hungry in the lean months of our long Wisconsin winters!

  Advance registration for the 5K/10K Snowshoe Stomp by Tuesday, February 10th will assure a complimentary WinMan Windigo fleece headband.  Participants ages 13 and up are invited to register for $25 per racer; youth in the kids race participate for free.

The WinMan Trails are located 3.5 miles north of the Discovery Center, at the intersections of Highways W and J in Winchester, WI.  For maps, trail report information, and permitted uses and amenities, please visit WinManTrails.com, or “like” us on Facebook.

The May North - Americana/Folk/Bluegrass (8:00 pm)

The May North - Americana/Folk/Bluegrass
Minocqua Brewing Company,238 Lakeshore Dr,Minocqua
Friday, February 20, 2015 8:00 pm

There’s a restless spirit flowing through the North Country that’s hard todefine, and sometimes a good song is the only way to put it into properperspective. The May North has a rare knack for doing just that—makingsense of love, loss, long winters, longer highways and the shiftinglines between urban and country living. With a sound that’s part classic Americana, part folk, part bluegrass and a bit of breakneck blues, TheMay North pays tribute to these forms while carving its own distinctlyoriginal path.

The members of The May North converged around St.Paul, MN in 2010 and quickly found a home in the blossoming Midwestacoustic music scene. Prior to that, these diverse musicians honed their skills jamming in bluegrass and blues circles and performing in various rock, funk and symphony ensembles.

The band is careful not todefine themselves as strictly “bluegrass” or “folk,” as the music findsits influences, lyrics, and keys deviate away from the norms of thesegenres. However, they do employ the time-honored instruments of acoustic guitar, upright bass, banjo, dobro and fiddle to create an earthy andintricately-woven soundscape. With evocative ballads and hard-drivingfoot-stompers, their engaging songs bring live audiences from quietreflection to howling jubilation within the course of an evening.

With the release of their second album, Interstate Lives, TheMay North showcases a wide range of original material rich in emotion,lyrical depth and musical ingenuity. This is bluegrass withoutboundaries, folk without pretense, honest storytelling without apology.

What comes to mind when you think about aging? Do you think of a downhill slope, an uphill climb, or simply another bend in the road? Maybe all of these. It’s complicated. How we age is all about the choices we have made along the way -- every day. We can live ‘til we die by making good choices. Come and share your wisdom. Investment: $10.00.
