In the wrap-up message to the event participants, Mid-Atlantic Masters Division Chair, Carol Tomassetti, recapped the event: "The weather was picture perfect, the snow was beyond amazing and it was just joyful to be together racing in such great conditions. We completed all three days of racing with no injuries which is the best part of the report. We pulled off two SG's, one counted for the Easterns, while both counted for the speed series. The GS and SL's both went off without a hitch. ...The racing was great, the weather was great, but the people that came were the BEST"
