Big Excitement in Downtown Yellow Pine

The Pioneer Military Cross Country Ski Challenge was held in Yellow Pine on Saturday, January 17th, 2004.  The Army and Marines were represented by good men, (names withheld upon request.)  The race started about 1pm at the dump, and the contestants crossed the finish line at the Yellow Pine NCO Club (a.k.a. The Corner Bar) about 40 minutes later, in a photo finish!

A crowd of well wishers assembled at the finish line when the skiers were first sighted at the edge of town.  To the strains of "Chariots of Fire" on the loud speakers - and cheers from the crowd - Army and Marine matched stride for stride up the main street.  Suddenly, the Marine fell down, but as a good soldier would help a fellow comrade in arms, Army stopped and helped him to his feet.   

Again, they started for the finish line, with the music swelling in the back ground, and the crowd going wild (and 4 video camera running), the skiers crossed the finish line - in a DEAD HEAT.
