What's This...More Snowshoe Races in NH??

I was scanning Coolrunning trying to fill the voids of a few race-free weekends and I stumbled across a couple new additions to the NH snowshoe racing scene. I had heard rumors of these previously but thought the Ice Storm of 2008 wiped out any chance of holding races at these two sites.
I guess all that snowshoe training Michael Amarello has been doing in HHNP must have changed his mind. Michael is the founder of 3C Race Productions in Merrimack, NH and produces a gazillion road and trail races all over NH, MA and ME and has now added snowshoe races to his resume. Along with the Horse Hill 7k Snowshoe Race on February 14th (part of the Granite State Snowshoe Series ), he's also producing the following NH races:

Beaver Brook 5k Snowshoe Race - Hollis, NH 1/17/09

Feel Good Farm 7k Snowshoe Race - Lyndeborough, NH 1/24/09

Thanks Michael!

That Feel Good Farm XC race this past fall was cancelled because of the storm and the damage it did to the course... hopefully the snowshoe race will go off without a hitch.

One additional comment is that is ME in the far far background of that top pic w/ my number on my hip... :)

You are correct sir, that is you. Maybe I should play 'guess the runner in the pic' next time :-)
