Kudos to Dave Irons and the Sun Journal for the March 19 article and vivid cover relating to the U.S. Alpine Championships returning to Sugarloaf. The Sun Journal plays an important role in publicizing area events that could use local support to flourish.

The U.S. Alpine Championships returning to Sugarloaf illustrates the jewel of a mountain that we Mainers have in our back yard, and the confidence the U.S. Ski Team has in my friend Bruce Miles and his talented competition center team to organize and hold such major events.

I thank the Sun Journal for keeping its readership community informed, thus giving the public the opportunity to support such important local events.
