: r Page 8 Wednesday, Jan. 14, 1976 by Bob Kassow Director of the Stein Eriksen Touring School Alternating Saturdays on the Park City golf course are becoming quite an event with the running of the Fischer Europa Cuop Citizens Race Series. Last weekend, 53 skiers in eight classes competed for the grand prize - Fischer racing skis. ; Those at the race, the second in the six race series, enjoyed ideal conditions for the first time in several weeks. Competitors and spectators basked in the warm sun and festive atmosphere. Hats are off to the generous sponsors of the event who donated their time and energy to promote-cross-country skiing and to raise money for the U.S. Olympic Team Nordic Fund - Stein Eriksen Ski School, Wolfe's, Fischer Ski Company -Thank you. The race was run on a 4 kilometer track on Park City's golf course. Before you pull out your calculator, that's slightly under 3 miles per lap. Each competitor raced against the clock, starting at one minute intervals and running between one and three laps depending on class. What a great day to see the veterans over 60 out there with the same enthusiasm as the serious racers or the Pee Wees they're . youngsters in elementary school. One of the greatest things about citizens racing are the motives for this friendly competition. Whether they're there to just see if they can go the distance, to improve technique or to turn in the day's fastest run, everyone is having a great time. William Strutz, a University of Utah crosscountry cross-country racer recently returned from the Olympic Trials where he placed 15th, won his class and was then lucky enough to have his name, one of eight clasf winners, drawn from the hat to win the $140 Fischer racing-skis.

Harald Stuefer espouses a radically iconoclastic approach ap-proach to ski racing he doesn't believe in physical training. Sleep, enjoyed in heaping quantities at any time of the day, is his well of strength as a professional ski racer.

Harald Stuefer is the third greatest money winner in World Pro Skiing's six-year history (107,987); he ranks fourth in total career victories (7) ; and he has never ranked lower than sixth overall in four pro seasons, having placed as high as second (1972-73).

Congenital defects in his hip sockets . made tucking for downhills a painful ordeal, and his lanky frame was an unwieldy liability in steep, tight slaloms. Frustrated, he retired from racing to work as a dental assistant. Then in the fall of 1972, Hugo Nindl suggested Stuefer join him as an instructor at , Hunter Mountain, NY.

Perhaps Stuefer's reason for oversleeping is an enduring en-during fear that he may awaken from his dream. Armengols FareWell In Competition Park City racer T.J.

Despite the loss of defen-seman defen-seman Tim Jacobs and high-scoring high-scoring wingers Fred Ahern andJimMoxey (all of whom were summoned by their injury-riddled parent club, the California Golden Seals), Coach Marv Edwards' remaining contingent regrouped and masterminded master-minded their greatest singular effort of the season to date, a 4-2 comeback win over Oklahoma City, that climaxed an overactive week with a 2-1-0 log. The triumph, achieved on the strength of 4 third-period lamps by Lyle Bradley, Frank Spring, Charlie Simmer (the game-winner) game-winner) and rookie Tom Sundberg (a short-handed, unassisted effort). Second-year Second-year goalie Ernie Miller picked up his 9th win of the campaign. In view of the circumstances already mentioned, and tacking on the fact that defenseman Glenn Patrick was sidelined with a groin pull, the performance per-formance that thrilled 6,109 ecstatic Eagle partisans may henceforth be classified as the turning point in a most befuddling season to date, Earlier in the week, the Big Birds had trounced last-place Tucson by a 7-1 count, then proceeded to do your basic 180 degree about-face in a 7-4 defeat to the same club. Butch Williams second "hat trick" in 17 names (alone with a trio of . assists that etched his name in the books with a record-tying 6 points) and Denis Meloche's 5-point contribution (lg, 4a) paced the opening win, but for the fifth time in 7 opportunities, the green-and-gold failed in its attempt . to complete . a series sweep. Ex-Eagle netminder Ray Martyniuk notched his second verdict in three tries against his ex-mates, ex-mates, and presented his club with their first win ever on Salt Palace ice. Buoyed by 6 wins in their last 8 outings, the Utahns conclude a 5-game home stand with a return engagement on Palace ice Jan. 5 against Oke City. Barring a tie, the winner will capture the lead in the series, which now stands at 3-3-1. The Blazers will not return to Salt Lake until March 1. Beginning ' Wednesday night in Dallas, the Eagles will inaugurate their only extended January road trip, a 5-game affair which will touch down in every eastern city The Black Hawks lead the series, 3-2-0 (including a pair of wins at State Fair Park.) From Texas, it's on to Oklahoma, and games in Tulsa and Oke City on Friday and Saturday, respectively. The Oilers, defying anyone to wrest the top spot from their grapplehooks, hold a preponderant 3-1-1 edge over ITALIAN CUISINE elegant but casual atmosphere NIGHTLY 10:30 the Big Birds; however, that deficiency can be rectified with Eagle wins Friday and the following Wednesday (in the road finale.) The Blazers, meanwhile, have bested Salt Lake twice while being tied once in a trio of Eagle appearances ap-pearances there. ' ' Finally, the fourth invasion of the year of Fort Worth's Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum will present the Eagles with a chance for their initial win there. As previously mentioned, the journey ' concludes the following night back in Tulsa's Assembly Center. Then Utahns then return to the friendly Palace confines for a weekend set with Tucson, Jan 16-17. That series will kick off a 6-game home stand that will feature several promotions, and see Dallas and Tulsa also come to town for a brace of tilts each.
