jump Richard Tonkin of the Canadian ski team will be on hand to try to out jump some of America’s top aces in the sport.  Tonkin has represented Team Canada for several years and loves competing on the hill at Norge.  If he is to capture top honors he will first have to conquer some major obstacles.


A few of those major obstacles will include being able to out jump local favorites AJ. Brown, Kevin Bickner, Conner Jacobsen and Norge’s next Olympic hopeful, Michael Glasder.  These skiers have racked up thousands of miles travelling from one competition to another throughout the summer, fine tuning their skills and improving their distances week by week.


The September competition is the perfect time for “fair weathered fans” who like to avoid the chill of winter.  The weather is almost perfect this time of year.  Food and beverages will be sold on site as well as souvenirs.  Parking at the Norge facility is free.  This is a great family event to see and an exciting way to wrap up summer!


Norge Ski Jump is in Fox River Grove, just two blocks north of Rt. 14.  Admission is $10 in advance at many area merchants in Cary and FRG.,  or $15 at the gate.  There will also be a Junior ski meet on Saturday, Sept. 18th. at 11am.  Pre sale buttons are valid for both days.  For further information call Norge at 847/639-9718 or 847/630-4328.
