John R Lyons Memorial Tourney - Sat January 8 (See Sched/Results page for scoresheets) WOW! What a tournament today! We handed out 91 bibs for the 10m, 20m and 30m combined. We started over with the bib numbers for the 46m and handed out an additional 18! I think it was a record number of jumpers for one of our competitions. It took only about 3 hours! AWESOME work by everyone at the St Paul Ski Club. Thank you to the PhillyExpress food truck for keeping everyone fed today! Thank you to all Central Division jumpers for such an incredible turnout to support the St Paul Ski Club and to honor sweet Camilla Jacobson. to view a PDF of the dedication presented before the start of the tournament.
