    Join your fellow Nordics for a hike at Nashotah Park in Waukesha County on Saturday, May 21st @ 9:00 am. Let’s plan on meeting in the parking lot by picnic area 1.

You will need either a daily park sticker ($6 per car) or a Waukesha County annual sticker. If you have any questions, please call Chris Pantazon @ 414-852-4155. Please note that If rain is expected the hike may be cancelled. Directions to the park can be found at:  https://www.waukeshacounty.gov/nashotah/

    • Tuesday, May 31, 2022
    • 9:30 AM
    • Greenfield Park

    What could be finer than a grand finale finish to May, a 35-mile bike ride! The date is Tuesday, May 31. We’ll be meeting at Greenfield Park and ride on the New Berlin bike trail to “cozy and classy” Mama D’s Coffee in Wales. Indoor and outdoor seating available. It’s an “out and back” ride on the trail, approximately 17 miles each way, equaling a grand total of 35 miles at ride’s end. Park & meet fellow Nordics in the lot adjoining the pavilion & splash pool, ready to ride at 9:30 am. Bring water and snacks for the ride. Route terrain is mostly flat with a few, mostly gradual incline/declines on both rural and urban parts of the trail. An added bonus, route distance can be easily altered. The downside, be prepared for a number of stops as the trail crosses busy roads and highways. Oh well, all worth it due to a very enjoyable ride, good friends, and a delightful lunch! Contact ride leader Jane Stoltz via email by May 30 if you plan to join her: 1jmstoltz@gmail.com

    • Matty’s Bar & Grille on College Avenue in New Berlin

    We have quite a legacy here at the Nordic Ski Club of Milwaukee. We're the group that made cross-country skiing popular in southeastern Wisconsin. We taught thousands to ski. We held a variety of races. We designed ski trails. And we have continued to support ski venues throughout Wisconsin and in northern Michigan. Plus, we've always been a year-round outdoors group. We’ll celebrate all these decades of fun this summer on Aug. 28, 2022. We'll be outdoors in a tented venue on a Sunday afternoon. So plan to sign up in June for our 50th anniversary celebration.

    The club was founded in December 1971, and our fiscal year runs October through September. So it makes sense to celebrate over two years. We started in 2021 with a 50th anniversary award at the Milwaukee County Historical Society awards dinner.

    We continue with our club dinner in August. The location is Matty’s Bar & Grille on College Avenue in New Berlin. There will be awards, recognitions, prizes and a look back over five decades. We hope to have about 100 people, including many past presidents and club members. Every club member gets $10 off the dinner price, which we promise will be reasonable. A lot of people know and like Matty’s, and the venue will be creating a special cocktail just for our club.
