American Bald Eagle Flies Over Norway’s Marius Lindvik on 144 Meter Flight Sunday!       Iron Mountain Daily News photo - Theresa Proudfit Sunday was cold and sunny again, with light and variable breezes, but the tournament was started an hour earlier than originally scheduled, because the forecast projected winds to go up a bit by mid-afternoon.  It was a day when the hill record was under threat several times, and appeared to be broken on a 144 meter flight by Lindvik in the first round, but that record didn’t stand … because Lindvik didn’t stand!  He fell after landing, and didn’t make it quite far enough through the bottom transition.  Remarkably, a bald eagle appeared just above the landing as Lindvik soared to the bottom!  Granerud took top honors with flights of 126.5 and 143 meters, rolling up 263.8 points.  Slovenia’s Anze Lanisek flew 141.5 and 127 meters, good for 256,7 points.  Lindvik stood his second jump of 139.5 meters, and claimed the third spot on the podium with 255.6 points.  Read FIS article Major Fundraising Campaign Underway May 22, 2017 – The Kiwanis Ski Club of Iron Mountain, Michigan received official notice of their 501c3 non-profit status. “This is a tremendous step forward to meet our fundraising goals for the next three years” said Daniel Freeman, VP of the Kiwanis Ski Club.  CLICK FOR MORE INFO & VIDEO     Further info on the approval of 501c3 status below … scroll down SOARING INTO THE FUTURE! FIS Requires Updates Over Next 3 Years    A rendering of the second stage of updates needed at the Pine Mountain    ski jump venue, done by Integrated Designs Inc., an architecture,    engineering, and consulting firm in Marquette.   IRON MOUNTAIN — The Kiwanis Ski Club, which organizes the annual  Giant Pine Mountain Ski Jumping competition, is required by FIS, the International Ski Federation, to make several improvements within 3 years. For the 2018 tournament, the landing area needs to be adjusted from a 37- degree slope to about 30 degrees for safety. “This means the side boards have to come off, marker steps have to come off and go back on and fill needs be added to the landing area from about 90 meters down,” club member Lennie Walters said. Stage two, needed by the 2019 event, is more significant. The start gates must be widened, a stair tower built and a warming shelter completed alongside the scaffold. Finally, an elevator must be installed by 2020, Bujold said. Club members have worked with Integrated Designs Inc. of Marquette on architecture, engineering and consulting and already have invested $20,000 in engineering to meet FIS specifications. Club Receives $24K Gift For Projects The organization “100 Women Who Care in Dickinson County has announced a gift of approximately $24,000 to the Kiwanis Ski Club to help with the costs of FIS-mandated improvements to the facility.  You can view the Iron Mountain Daily News article of 8/31/17 … CLICK HERE Reuben Hamari Inducted into ASJ HOF The late Reuben Hamari, outstanding Kiwanis Ski Club jumper in the ‘40s, ‘50s, and into the ‘60s, is one of six athletes inducted this year into the American Ski Jumping Hall of Fame.  The ceremony was held at the Mt Frontenac golf club, just south of Red Wing MN, on Saturday, August 5; a large contingent from Kiwanis Ski Club attended, and Reuben’s daughter Lisa accepted the award on his behalf.
