The King Twins
In 1970, the Dow Jones hovered around 850, a new home would run you $23,000, gas prices averaged 36 cents, and Sports Illustrated cost 15 cents. Sports Illustrated would have been writing about Billy Kid lighting up the World Cup ski racing circuit and possibly a mention of Viki Fleckenstein, a promising local racer training at your Cazenovia Ski Club. It was during this same time, ambitious 16-year-old twins would register for the National Ski Patrol.
Yesterday, at the annual National Ski Patrol refresher held at Toggenburg, Jim and Pete King were recognized for 50 Years of service with the National Ski Patrol. This is an incredible achievement and one of many examples of their dedication to the Cazenovia Ski Club and the community at large. We cannot thank Jim and Pete enough for all they have done for the club over the years, including 50 years of patrolling.
It is also worth noting, Russ King has been with NSP for 46 years and Tom King joined the patrol in 2016. Our small patrol is heavy on Kings and we are thankful for that.
