Sports Center Saturday

We are rather proud of an uncle, Dennis Jones (b. 21 May 1911, d. 4 June 1987), who was the first certified ski instructor in California. He was the founder of the West's first ski resort located in Soda Springs, California in 1929. He was the recipient of the Charley Proctor Award, an award given to someone "who has made a significant contribution to the sport of skiing in the region [California-Nevada]."
