      Pack your bags, it's Noque time

      With the Noquemanon race coming this weekend, volunteers were busy Thursday filling pre-race packets.

      Volunteers inside the Superior Dome were working on making up 1,000 packets. They contain information from vendors and local businesses along with race information.

      The bags will be handed out as part of the Noquemanon expo on Friday.

      "They're really helping us out. This is just a wonderful thing, and to get the community involved in the race is very important, and everything is set up to be more of a celebration rather than just a registration process," said Noque Expo coordinator, John Wells.

      The race expo is Friday from 5 to 10 p.m. at the Superior Dome. About 1,200 racers are signed up for the Noquemanon Ski Marathon.
