Don West Passes Away in Plattsburgh NY; Inspired Many During 65 Year Ski Jumping Career On August 30, 2014, the American ski jumping community lost a competitor, communicator, and friend.  Don retired from active competition in 2011 after 65 years on skis ... and in the air.  At that time he was the oldest active Masters-class competitor in the USA.  He’s pictured at right (blue suit) next to his old friend and competitor, Bob Immens, in 2003.  A retired college professor, Don was the webmaster for the Eastern Division, and one of the last things he posted on that site in mid-August was a brief obituary for his long-time friend, Earle Murphy, a pioneer in the development of the International     (click photo to enlarge) Masters Championships.  Visit Don’s site, www.skijumpeast.com Don was inducted into the American Ski Jumping Hall of Fame in 2012 for his lifetime of achievements in, and contributions to, the sport of ski jumping in the USA.  Read his biography at the American Ski Jumping Hall of Fame.   Also article on NYSEF FB page We’ll post additional information, including a link to an official obituary, as we receive it. We’re making changes to our site for the 2014-15 season.  It will automatically display in a narrower format for mobile devices, and that version will contain fewer graphics, so it won’t demand as much bandwidth. We’re going to carry less content on the homepage.  We will be relying more on links to the Women’s Ski Jumping USA and the USA Ski Jumping (men’s) sites for news and information from their respective teams, coaches, and officials. We’ll also be providing links to the FIS website for international schedules and results.  For those unfamiliar with that site, we’ll provide instructions on getting info on upcoming competitions, and results from those which have been completed. The FIS site also makes it possible to find complete competition histories for individual athletes, and a wealth of other info that’s better delivered by helping our visitors navigate their site than by trying to provide links to all their features from here. We’ll still carry info on competitions on the bigger hills in the US, such as US Cup, FIS Cup, and Continental Cup, as well as the bigger annual events at individual clubs, which will usually involve competition on their smaller hills, too. Please return regularly to see how our site is taking shape for the upcoming season!
