Annual Ski Tour - April 26th
For the third year the JOHN CRAIG MEMORIAL SKI TOUR will be held over historic McKenzie Pass. This time it will go "downhill", east to west, starting at 4 Mile Springs and terminating at Alder Springs.
Tentative plans are shaping up by the Obsidians, sponsors of the tour, and the Tri-Pass Ski Club, sponsors of the cross-country ski race. General chairman George Korn and Co-chairman Harold Trotter, the originator of the idea, say that snow conditions the past week will assure snow the length of the course.
The Obsidian Ski Committee consisting of Mike Stahl, Doris Sims, Clarence Bankhead and Glen Sims are working out details for a bigger and better tour. The Ski Patrol will also take an active part.
The annual letter sale will have a new twist with an antique auto race from Mckenzie Bridge to Eugene picking up the mail along the route. These letters help underwrite the promotion, trophies and the dining and lodging of the ski tour and race contestants.
Skiing will be in order at Hoodoo Bowl Saturday previous to the race with tour and race headquarters at Santiam Lodge. Sunday morning the tour will proceed to the McKenzie Pass and, with the ski patrol, pave the way for the racers. The banquet after the race will be held on the McKenzie side at the McKenzie High School. The finish of the race on this side should be of a great deal of interest to Obsidians not wishing to make the trip over the pass. Send a letter to a friend, too.
