Karl Jacobson took first place in Monday's Town Race. Town Race Old rivals join forces to win Pro class Adolph's and Wolfe's, two traditional rivals in the Park City Town Race series, have apparently buried the hatchet. But everyone else wishes they hadn't. A team sponsored jointly by Adolph's and Wolfe's posted the fastest time Monday to win first place in the Pro class of the Town Race held on Clementine at the Park City Ski Area. "It really surprised us," said Tasha Beebe, race department office manager, after she heard of the joint team. "We never expected them to get together." Beebe reported that 267 participants signed up for Monday's race. "That's the largest turnout we've ever had." The winning team, composed com-posed of Kari Hays, Bill Skinner and Karl Jacobson, finished with a combined time of 223.50 seconds, more than a second ahead of a team sponsored by the Black Pearl. Skinner posted the fastest individual time in the first run, but was edged out by teammate Jacobson when the two-run totals were calculated. Hays had the second-fastest time among the Pro women. Skiing for the Black Pearl was a racer familiar to followers of the World Cup circuit. Kathy Kreiner, Olympic medalist and former for-mer member of the Canadian Ca-nadian national team, posted the fastest individual time for the Pro women and joined forces with Victor Roy and Mike Wade to take second in the Pro class. Kreiner is now a student at the University of Utah. A rule change approved by the race department a year ago allows sponsors to recruit re-cruit skiers other than their own employees. Finishing first in the A class was a Wolfe's team made up of Wendy Westman, Bruce Juhl and Scott Beck. The winner in the B class was the Janeaux's team of Kathryn Hatfield, Norm Smith and John Ellsworth. The top prize in the C class went to the Corner Store team of Lorrie Haddock, Kirk Anderson and Peggy Suermann. First place in the Cross-country class was captured cap-tured by the Corner Store team of Cindy Fish, Brad Makoff and Rip Griffith. And the top prize in the Vet class went to Mountain Savior team of Tracy Zweig, Jim Kennicott and Tim Mertens. Individual standings are listed in the Scoreboard section. Nordic newcomer shocks the experts John Collins, a Park City resident who had never competed in a nordic race before, posted the fastest time in the Mill class (for ages 19 to 29) and the fifth fastest overall in Saturday's Brighton-to-Park City Mountain Moun-tain Overland. Collins covered the six-and-a-half mile course in 47:10, more than five mintues faster than the second-place finisher in the Mill class. He also finished ahead of- such cross-country stalwarts as Jim Miller, an instructor at Park City's White Pine Touring Center. Seventy-two contestants entered the race, the highest number in the history of the event. "Only the dedicated crosscountry cross-country skiers come to that race," Miller said later. Among the other first-time competitors was Park City's Jessie Whitmore, who took first place in the Women's Novice division. "She had a good uphill run," Miller observed. The fastest time of the day was recorded by Dag Mo-bakken, Mo-bakken, a Norwegian student stu-dent at the University of Utah, competing in the Men's Expert class. Also finishing in the top ten in that class were local residents Jim Miller (fifth), Jeff Newson (seventh) and Dave Hanscom (ninth). Hanscom is recovering from a foot operation which made it difficult for him to train for the event. The race began with a mass start at the Brighton Touring Center. The first mile was a footrace following follow-ing the asphalt road toward Guardsman Pass. "It was great," Miller said. "W$h everyone carrying carry-ing theirjskis, it was pretty hilarious," , For th next two miles, the coufSehea1ted overland to ScQtt'jf,ssf-The, final leg coveraH th3e-aWialf niiles down Thaynes Canyon to the golf course. This Saturday, White Pine will host the first in a series of handicap relay races designed to help those whose 21st birthdays are receding in the distance. Each team will be com-pfcs&l com-pfcs&l oT'lhree people, one woman and two men or two women Laad one man. The total time of the three contestants will be divided by their average age to calculate a final score. The team with the lowest score wins the first-place trophy. This race was originally scheduled for Jan. 3. It was postponed after , two machines, ma-chines, normally used to pack the golf-course track, had mechanical problems. Registration will start at 9 a.m., with the race set to begin an hour later. Wanna climb Niagara Falls? Here's the first step It turns out that there is more to do in Utah's winter wonderland than just ski. That's no revelation to Steve Erickson and Jim Miller, instructors at the White Pine Touring Center. They've been doing exotic things like climbing ice formations for years. But they've now reached the point where they want to share that expertise. "What we're trying to do at White Pine is branch out of straight nordic skiing into the total winter environment," environ-ment," says Miller. One of the first steps in that direction was to establish estab-lish a winter safety course, which is now being taught to students at the Carl Winters Middle School. Included in the course are classes in first aid and use of map and compass. For those who are even more interested in confronting confront-ing the winter environment, White Pine is offering a two-day ice-climbing course Jan. 30 and 31. According to Miller, the first day's training will take place on an ice curtain in the Bridal Veil Falls area in Provo Canyon. Miller said they will teach a technique, called top roping, which involves attaching a rope to the ice formation using specially-designed screws. "It's geared towards the beginning ice climbers," he said. The second day will see the climbers tackle an ice for mation in Little Cottonwood Canyon. Ropes and ice screws will be supplied by White Pine. However, climbers may have to rent other equipment such as ice axes, crampons, and helmets.' The cost of the course is $40 per day or $70 for two days. Miller said White Pine hopes to repeat the course Feb. 13 and 14.

They are not ready for Old Dominion yet, but Coach Bill Dwyer has high hopes for a successful success-ful first season. The team is sponsored by the Park City Resort. The Park City Bumps play in the Salt Lake County Recreation Department Women's Basketball League. The league has three divisions and the new Park City team is in the "C" division, with eight other teams. The games are played play-ed at West Valley Junior High. In their first contest on Jan. 11, the Bumps played against the Basketmakers from Salt Lake, The final score was 18-14 for the Basketmakers favor. On the 15-member Park City squad, several women have played in high school and one in college. But for the rest it is a learning experience. According to Coach Dwyer, Dwy-er, the Bumps were a little nervous in their first outing. "They were slow in starting, the momentum was missing in their game. The team was not playing together as a group; there wasn't enough passing or playmaking." Tile Bumps committed quite a few fouls and turnovers, added Dwyer. However, it was apparent the team was enthusiastic about playing basketball. "The team was well disciplined," disci-plined," he said, , "and they played good defense. Under the boards and rebounding they impressed me with their - aggressiveness. The girls made good shot selections selec-tions and tried to set up the shots as well as possible. I could see the competitive edge was there." Dwyer believes the Bumps will eventually score 30 points a game. So by the end of the season, when the league has its tournament, the team will be prepared. The six top players are Kim Gallin, Mary Ann Thiem, Carrie Mutcher, Kathy Leonard, Sue Bishop, and Bonnie Bishop. Filling out the rest of the roster are teammates Bernadette Ott, Carol Fuller, Missy Meyers, Mary Demko-,wicz, Demko-,wicz, Carolyn Bowden, Kathy Lawson, Margaret Braae, Maggie Hahn and Lisa Chinn. The Bumps play their next game on Jan. 25, against the Francescos in Salt Lake. They will play every Monday night for the next six week to complete the regular scrison.
