Four Crimson skiers will compete Sunday in an Invitation Meet to be held on the Richard Taft Trail at Franconia, New Hampshire, for the Hochgeberge Club's Second Class Downhill Championship.
R. Colin Maclaurin '38, Robert H. Shaw '37, Charles S. Rogers '37, and Dunbar Carpenter '37 will represent the Crimson. Those finishing among the first thirty in the downhill race which will be held in the morning, will be eligible to compete in the Slalom run that afternoon.
Teams from the Dartmouth Alumni Outing Club, Dartmouth College, the Newport Ski Team, the Redbirds of Montreal, the Schussverein Ski Team, the White Mountain Ski Runners, and the Hochgeberge Club will compete to make one of the largest meets in the east.
Several weeks ago the team spent a few days practicing on the trail with Coach Charles Proctor. Proctor was a member of the Olympic Ski team last year and designed many of the trails in New England, including the Richard Taft trail where the race is to be held.
