    thanks for the nice article. my father’s second cousin (not sure how that makes me related) was Billy Olson of Eau Claire. he was one of the better jumpers in the 1950-1960’s. I saw his last jump, a nasty fall, at Iron Mountain, Michigan in the early to mid 60’s.

    I discovered this article Feb 3, 2020, too late to attend any of the events. I would like to suggest some better ways to get out the word of your calendar. many friends here in MSP would love to attend a jump but never seem to find out any information. The Loppet Foundation could be included in your postings with links to the ski jumping events. we have thousands in the area who regularly view our website. http://www.loppet.org

    thanks and looking forward to more information on ski jumping… the best sport ever!!!
