Sonny Lindner Rounds Out Career With Top 5 Finish – March 11, 2014 12:44 pm
Veteran musher Sonny Lindner began mushing in 1978, and on Tuesday he put the final touches on a stellar career with a top five finish in Iditarod 42. Lindner, who is 64, says this will be his last Iditarod.
It looks like it will be around 20 degrees and sunny on Monday,
so let’s ski at Devil’s Head.
I will be driving up with 1-2 of my condo owner friends.
We’ll plan on being ready to ski around 10AM.
I’ll wear my red ski club bandana around my ski pants.
You can reply to me or to all and I’ll coordinate as best I can.
I will, however, be out of town from noon today until Sunday afternoon.
Hope to see some of you there Monday.
Vince Perkins, Ron Wingender, and I had a blast when we
skied there on Jan. 15. $23 if you’re 66 or better/older.
I think it’s $37 if you’re 60 or better.

The 3 Musketeers (Vince Perkins, Dan Schuette, Ron Wingender) had a blast
this past Wednesday skiing at Devil’s Head. Nice skiing conditions, $23
each (we’re old guys), sunshine & blue sky, blueberry muffins sent by Sandy
Schuette, cheese and crackers brought by Doris Wingender for après ski.
Lots of fun!!
I can’t host anything next week but check with Marty Deignan
who usually skis at Devil’s Head on Tues/Thurs. Tuesday looks pretty
cold, but Thursday might be okay. I might be able to go up the following
Tuesday (1/28) and plan on going again on Monday, Feb 3 and Feb 10 with two
of my condo assn. buddies who ski. I’ll keep everyone updated as best I
can. Good skiing and stay warm!!
It looks like the arctic blast will soon be gone so let’s do some
local skiing. I will be at Devil’s Head next Wed, Jan 15 at 10AM ready to do some skiing and will likely leave between 3-4 PM.
If 1-2 people want to meet at the DeForest park ‘n ride at 9:15AM
to ride with me let me know. Lift tickets are $37 for 60 and older
and $22 for 66 and older. At least that’s what they told me on
the phone this morning and Marty Diegnan has skied there for $22.
Bring friends and family and have some fun. Weather looks like some
sun with lows in the high teens and highs in the high 20′s. Anything I can help with just let me know.
(If you are looking for someone to ride up with, let Dan know.)
