Due to continuing concerns over the COVID–19, the Ullr 70th Anniversary Celebration at the Minnesota Valley Country Club which was rescheduled from May to Sunday, September 13th, was again rescheduled to now take place on Sunday, May 23, 2021. Recently the Ullr Board voted to NOT have their Thursday evening monthly General Meetings for October and November. We also canceled the annual Holiday Party that was planned for December 6th.
The Ullr biking schedule did resume in June with social distance guidelines, breaking into smaller groups, and a “bring your own” lunch/beverage. The number of bikers participating in these rides ranged from 12 to 25. A couple rides were of out of the cities: Cannon Falls and Sakatah Singing Hills near Mankato. The 3-day biking trip to Lanesboro August 23-25 did take place as scheduled with 19 bikers. They hit the trails early to beat the heat and humidity. The last ride is scheduled for October 8th.
Via email and phone calls, the Winter Programs VP was quite successful in finding volunteer leaders to plan a Hiking and Ski Schedule for the Fall-Winter-Spring months of 2020-21. The first hike is scheduled for September 11th on the Highline Trail at Thomas Lake Park, Eagan. You will find these planned hikes as well as downhill and cross-country/snowshoe dates listed on the Ullr Website. Ullrs will NOT have a club sponsored Western ski trip this year. All Ullr activities or updated information is put on our Website www.Ullr.org. Check it often for up-to-date information.
