Iditarod Results

The Iditarod XII was held Nov. 10 with 14 four-person teams playing cross-country on a redesigned LPN course. The temperature was a balmy 49 degrees for this event that marks the end of the 2013 LPN golf tournament season. See the results here.

Ping Pong Night Every Wednesday

The LPN winter ping pong league got underway last Wednesday, with the first week being informal play. Two-person teams will begin league play this Wednesday, Nov. 20. Two new ping pong tables are available this year, so there is room for both league and open play each Wednesday, beginning at 6 p.m. Ping pong night will continue each Wednesday, and is open to anyone interested. Come out and join the fun!
