"It's more fun,when you're not the only one having it."
Second year in a row that Amy (on the left) got her picture on the front page of our local newspaper. Last year for a polar plunge. This year for a cross-country ski race where a newspaper reporter considered Amy's wacky outfit front page worthy. She wore wild ski tights and a multi-colored Tutu with glittered stars glued on the bottom. Her tutu and stars don't show up very well in the picture, but her smile definitely does.
The newspaper titled their picture, "Tutu Cute."
They titled themselves, "Team Tutulicious."
The few sentences about Amy are part of a larger article:
“We get people outdoors and celebrate winter and we have fun,” Coach Liphart said.
As if to illustrate just that, Anna Nutt, Washburn High School freshman and club skier, hobbles by in her ski boots — wearing a blue tutu.
“We have a costume award,” Reed explains.
“Normally, I dress crazy in the first place because I like weird exotic things,” says Nutt.
Friend and fellow club skier Amy Vik — also donning a tutu — said the two just like to be “goofy.”
“And the reactions on people’s faces — totally worth it,” Vik said.
But, it’s all business on the cross country ski course, says Nutt.“We try to ski normal. We just look weird,” she said.
The two entered the 8K classic ski race which gives them a chance to touch up on technique for next week's big race. Both will compete in the state competitive skate and classic cross-country ski races next Saturday in Rhinelander. The two have been skiing for three to four years through 4H-CANSKI.
