Marthinius (Mark or M.A.) Strand, regarded as "the father of organized skiing" in the Intermountain West for establishing the first ski club hereabouts in 1915 and for decades-long efforts promoting ski jumping and skiing events locally and nationally during the 1920 and 1930s, will be inducted into the Intermountain Ski Hall of Fame Sept. 21. The Hall of Fame, established in 2002, is under the auspices of the University of Utah Marriott Library Ski Archives and the Joe Quinney Winter Sports Center/Alf Engen Ski Museum Foundation at the Utah Olympic Park. Those organizations are hoping to locate a family member of Strand’s who would accept the Hall of Fame award on behalf of the honoree who died in 1965. Anyone with information about such an individual should contact Connie Nelson, executive director, Alf Engen Ski Museum Foundation, by calling 658-4240 or at connie.nelson//miners.dartfishnet.com .
Figure Skating Club
This ice arena program is for those who aspire to become figure skaters and will meet on Fridays from 4 -5:30 p.m. Skaters of all ages and ability levels who are interested in taking private skating lessons, competing, and joining the figure skating club, are invited to participate. The $115 fee includes a half hour class that will vary in content from week to week (i.e. stroking and edges, moves in the field, ice dancing, synchronized skating, jumps, and spins) and a one-hour freestyle (or practice session for figure skaters) during which skaters can schedule private lessons with one of the pros for an additional fee. This arena-run program will eventually evolve into the Figure Skating Club of Park City. Registration is available online at http://www.pcice.org or at the ice arena.
