Wow--what a time we had out there at Twin Brook today. Forty-eight youthskiers ranging from 4 to 14 years old skied all over Twin Brook's trails ona scavenger hunt. The kids picked up tokens and candy in the woods andturned them in for all kinds of prizes at the end.
It was great fun seeing everyone out there skiing--kids and parents!

Thanks to everyone for bringing the prizes and special thanks to PeakPerformance in Portland for donating ski ties, water bottles and posters tothe prize table. Thanks to all of the parents who helped out on the courseand at the prize table.
