The Norge Ski Training Center is holding a wine-beer-bourbon tasting party on Saturday, November 22nd, at its lodge in Fox River Grove.
We have attended several. The food is good, there is a large selection of liquid spirits to sample and you get the chance to see club jumpers from inside a warm enclosure (or outside on the porch, if you prefer).
The cost is $30 in advance (call Kathy Glasder at 847-6048) of $35 at the door.

You may have noticed that a Norge ski jumper is featured on the masthead of McHenry County Blog.
For the longest time I was looking for something unique to McHenry County. Then I thought of the big ski jump.
It’s not unique in the country, but it certainly is in Illinois.
It and the castle are the two tourist attractions in Fox River Grove.
