This past weekend NEDSRA had the Snowshoeing State Qualifications. 6 athletes qualified for the State Tournament in February. Good job HUSKIES! We can not wait to cheer you on during the Winter Games.

The rustle of silks and feathers under muted conversation was probably the last thing heard by the tragically and unexpectedly deceased at the Billionaires’ Club Annual Masquerade Ball. With a mystery under each feathery façade, unmasking the murderer may be quite a challenge. It’s up to you to determine which partygoer is guilty, bring this crime to justice, and save the party!

Dress up and bring your favorite mask to this high class night of masks and murder. Get ready for a glamorous evening of mystery, intrigue, and murder.
