Norge Honors Reese Palm
of Boy Scout Troop 29

Barrington, Illinois

Norge-Eagle-Scout-with-Norge-Board-May-6-2019.png

Reese Palm chose a project at Norge Ski Club to complete his Eagle Scout Project.  He led the construction and installation of 5 large wooden benches to be used as seating for spectators at ski jumping tournaments and practices. The benches are made from repurposed materials found on site at Norge, namely white oak trees and solid iron bars. Reese scouted the property and found several large standing dead white oak trees, he fell the trees and had them milled to be used as seats for benches. Reese designed the legs from old solid iron bars found at Norge. He cut them to size and welded brackets to bolt the wood tops. Footings were dug ( 15 total) below frost line which the legs of the benches are placed. The footings are filled with cement to keep the benches in place. Reese brought in topsoil and seeded the disturbed area for a nice finished look.

Reese utilized a very cool technique he researched to seal and finish the wood tops. The technique involved burning, oiling and brushing the wood to a finish that will preserve the wood from the weather for many years. This was very labor intensive and we appreciate extra the effort.

Everyone at Norge enjoyed working with Reese on this project. He went above and beyond to make the benches very special. The benches are a great addition to our grounds and will be enjoyed by our members, athletes, patrons on a daily basis.

Norge Ski Club thanks and congratulates Reese Palm and Troop 29 on completion of this great Eagle Scout project.

Thank You Reese!

Four men and three women will head to PyeongChang to compete in ski jumping events, U.S. Ski & Snowboard announced on Thursday. Kevin Bickner, Casey Larson, Will Rhoads, Nita Englund, and Abby Ringquist were added to the roster Thursday, and join Sarah Hendrickson and Michael Glasder, who were already named to the team by virtue of their wins at Olympic Trials in December.

Michael Glasder Makes U.S. Olympic Team

PARK CITY, Utah – Let's hear it for the veteran.

At age 28, Michael Glasder flew to an upset victory Sunday by winning the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Nordic Combined & Ski Jumping and qualifying for Team USA in men’s ski jumping.

Glasder, almost six years older than any of his rivals, won the event at Utah Olympic Park on the HS100 hill.

In the winner-take-all trials, Glasder defeated the five other male competitors, including top rivals Kevin Bickner and Will Rhoads, for the $10,000 first prize.

Just back from Europe, Glasder soared 98.5 meters on his first jump and had a beautiful Telemark landing, saying he believes the jet lag helped him. The distance combined with the judges’ points for form and wind compensation gave him 133.7 points.

He only had a 1.5-point cushion over Bickner, who also jumped 98.5 meters.

Bickner turned up the heat by going 100 meters on his second jump for a total of 268.6 points.

But Glasder then followed that with 98 meters and his style points gave him the victory at 270 points.

Up to three more athletes could qualify in men's ski jumping based on world cup results through Jan. 22.

Kevin Bickner (Wauconda), Michael Glasder (Cary), Casey Larson (Barrington) and AJ Brown (Fox River Grove) - For the Women's Team we have Cara Larson (Barrington).

This is the first time that The Norge Ski Club has had this many jumpers, from ONE club alone, represent our country. That's exciting to say in the least. Not only is this a testament to our great coaching staff, but also to the families that dedicate their time, monies and volunteering to keep our organization functioning, let alone our members who faithfully work around the facility inside and out.

In addition to our athletes that represent the National Team, we also have a great representation of jumpers from our club on the Junior National/Development Team - Ben Kaiser, Hunter Smith, Lucas Nichols, Patrick Gasienica and Molly Immens. You can see, Norge Rocks!

The Olympic Trials, for the February 2018 Winter Olympics will be in December on NBC Sports.

PARK CITY, Utah (July 29, 2017) – Utah's 2002 Olympic venues will play a key role in determining the first skiing athletes nominated to the 2018 U.S. Olympic Team to compete in PyeongChang. The U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Ski Jumping & Nordic Combined will be held Dec. 30-31 at the Utah Olympic Park in a winner-take-all event where the victors will be named to Team USA.

The announcement was made during U.S. Ski & Snowboard's U.S. Ski Jumping Championships at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City showcasing the top men's and women's ski jumpers in America.

"The Utah Olympic Park will be a great setting for the 2018 Olympic Trials and continue to build Utah's Olympic legacy and the State of Sport," said Utah Governor Gary R. Herbert. "The Olympics continue to serve athletes here in Utah as well as growing economic impact and media exposure for the state."

The Olympic Trials will feature nordic combined on Saturday, Dec. 30 followed by ski jumping for men and women on Sunday, Dec. 31. NBC will carry the event nationally including live coverage of Sunday's ski jumping. The winner of each event will receive a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team. The remainder of the ski and snowboard teams will be named later in January.
