A total of 240 students from 18 high schools in Minnesota and Wisconsin are competing in the 38th annual Welch Village/Hastings H.S. Invitational Alpine Ski Meet on today, Friday, January, 18, 2013 at Welch Village. The conditions should be ideal for racing with our natural and manufactured snow base of two to six feet on the racing slopes, with very mild temps for this time of year. The racers are excited for the event which takes place on Lookout and Bakkelyka.

 

The invitational race has seen many U.S. Olympian competitors such as Cindy Nelson, Kristina Koznick and Tasha Nelson. It is a forerunner of the sectional and state championship races held in Minnesota in early February, and often foretells the top finishers in later races.”

Welch Village Ski resort is open for business. Combine that with a B&B getaway weekend for fun winter getaway. We are 15 minutes away from the slopes. Look forward to a huge breakfast that we offer and then hit the slopes for a day of skiing then back to the Quill and Quilt for a hot tub soak before going out to dinner. There is not a better way to beat the winter then at its own game.

Cannon Falls is a small town with no live theater, and performances of
any kind are somewhat rare. So when the Cannon Falls High School does
their spring drama it adds a nice touch of culture in the only real
auditorium in the city (located at the high school).

This year the students are putting on a production of “Our Town,” by
Thornton Wilder. The play is set in a tiny New Hampshire town known as
Grover’s Corners in the early 20th Century. This is a charming,
evocative and touching story. And the drama program at Cannon Falls is
actually pretty good, the students do a nice job of staging and
performing by high school standards. In short, this is $8 well spent if
you enjoy live theater.

There will be 4 performances of Our Town this May, Saturday the 12th,
Friday the 18th & Saturday the 19th all at 7:00 p.m. – plus Sunday the
13th at 2:00 p.m. All performances will be at the Cannon Falls High
School Auditorium (820 East Minnesota Street). Tickets are $8 for adults
and may be purchased at the door.
