Morning I prepare to depart Eau Claire WI as our 15th annual Dion Snowshoes US National Snowshoe Championships have come to a conclusion...I would be remiss if I did not throw out one more heartfelt "thank you" to local race director Jereme Rauckman and his awesome CORBA team of volunteers, Michael Strubel and Ben Morgan of the Visit Eau Claire office, all the local sponsors and venues who so graciously welcomed us and opened the City to us all and our national sponsors who partnered with us this season, especially Bob and Denise Dion of Dion Snowshoes, Randall Christenson of Redfeather Snowshoes, Brian Hallgren of Northern Lite Snowshoes and Bryan Kuhn of Atlas Snow-shoe Co., who were all on site with us here in WI this weekend. We also want to thank John Duesler and his Emerging Sports Network for joining us this season and we're anxiously awaiting to see the footage they shot. Also, thanks to Leonard Suchobrus of Fine Designs for being here this year and providing our athletes with wonderful looking apparel merchandise. And, thanks to more than 300 snowshoers who participated this weekend here in Eau Claire and made our efforts so very worthwhile. I also want to thank my USSSA Team; Tim Walczyk and MJ Kiggins for tackling the busy weekend beside me, our snowshoe friends Chary Griffin and Marcy Schwam for assisting us this weekend, our USSSA webmaster Steve Cobb who labors behind the scenes for us all season long and our USSSA Executive Director Candice Bosworth back at headquarters in Corinth, NY. Finally, I want to thank my wife and son; Robyn and Jordan Elmore, for supporting me all year long and for these past 15 years as I've devoted myself to the USSSA, our National Snowshoe Championship Program and to our awesome membership of loyal USSSA athletes! Thank you all. I hope to see many of you in Ogden Utah next season for Nationals! Exciting times!
