Short’s is sponsoring the White Pine Stampede which will take place on Saturday, February 5th, 2011. The White Pine is a cross-country ski race that begins at Mancelona High School and ends at Shanty Creek Resort in Bellaire, just minutes from Short’s. Events include 10k, 20k, and 40k distances in both classic and freestyle categories. This is an exciting event with a beautiful course that winds through public and private land.
Short’s Brewing Company’s “staff and friends team” — known as Team Huma — will again compete this year. Joe Short himself will compete in the longest event — the 40k. Team Huma has once again purchased its gear through No Boundaries in Boyne City. Whether you are a skier or simply a fan of Short’s, please come out to support the White Pine and Team Huma. As a special reward, racers will be able to get a pint of beer for $1.50 at Short’s following the race. To get the $1.50 pint, racers will have to show their race bib and get it stamped.
We hope to see you there!
