Saturday’s story about ski jumping should have stated that Harris Andersen and Bill Ward developed the idea of the snus box trail. The slogan “Follow the snus box trail to Red Wing for the National Ski Jumping Tournament” was then printed on posters. About 25,000 people attended the event in 1928, which was held at Charlson Hill on Spring Creek Road. The first jumping event in the United States was held in the 1880s on McSorley Street.
