Hobson race
returns Sunday

Skiers on Baldy

Easter Sunday 2004 has been brightened even more by the 27th annual Hobson Memorial Race and picnic scheduled for Sunday, April 11 on Baldy. Last year 147 skiers took part.

The Hobson family started the race in memory of their father, Roy L. Hobson who passed away in 1960 and his daughter, Sheila Dorothy Hobson-Dolsot, who died in 1980.

The casual race format and picnic, which serves over 500 people, is open to all members of the Sun Valley and Hailey Ski Teams. The top time in each age group, boy and girl, is awarded a perpetual trophy that is displayed year round in the Sun Valley Lodge.

In addition to the perpetual trophy winners the Sun Valley Ski Team D team coaches recognize the boy and girl who have demonstrated excellence in achievement in development of skiing skills, sportsmanship and excellence in education with the Sigi and Peggy Engl Award and The Howard Dean Award which is given to a boy and girl who exhibit a love and passion for skiing.

The Hobson Memorial Race and Picnic is run by parent volunteers, coaches, staff of the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation, with the support of the Sun Valley Company.

Mrs. Dorothy Hobson-Krumm provides the trophies every year. This is an excellent family event that serves as a final race and "end of the season" party for many of these young athletes.

Call Holley duPont at 622-3549 if you have any questions.
