FARMINGTON – Dick Gould will give a short talk at the Farmington Ski Club’s annual meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, June 13, at the Titcomb Mountain Lodge. He will discuss the history of the high school ski teams. All are welcome.

Gould was the major force in having the Farmington high school recognized as a four-event team, and therefore competitive in regional events. The team already participated in alpine slalom and giant slalom events, but lacked the jumping and cross-country teams. Not only that, but Titcomb Mountain lacked a jump and cross-country course.

Through work and volunteers, Gould built these and started the legacy of the success of the area teams. For more information, call Club Historian Megan Roberts at 778-2964 or Club President Peter Judkins at 778-0934.
