Viking Ship/Davy Park Trail News:
PENS will be grooming the lighted Viking Ship/Davy Park trail again this year. Thanks to your membership dues, PENS was able to purchase the snowmobile to pull our grooming equipment. If you haven't skied after sundown, give this trail a try. The trailhead is located at the west end of the Hjemkomst parking area.
PENS members teach the Fargo Parks XC Ski Lessons each season. This season's lessons have been completed and we hope to see many new skiers out enjoying the trails in the area.
Ski lessons are held every January and members are encouraged to assist with the lessons. Visit Fargo Parks for details at http://www.fargoparks.com/event-detail/cross-country-skiing-101-starts/ and then click the "Registration" tab, and "Register for Programs."

Rainbow Romp: January 25, 2014
The Rainbow Romp is PENS biggest event. We just enjoyed another great day of skiing and fun at this year's Romp. The temperature was just a little cold; but there was plenty of warm food and great company to be enjoyed while warming up before heading out onto the trails again. We hope you will be able to participate next year.
Join us at the annual Rainbow Romp at Rainbow Resort in Waubun, MN on the last Saturday of January every year. More info...
