We are sad to report the loss of 2 more members of the ski racing family. Burt Court & Molly Lynch. Burt was a predominant boat driver back in the 1980s & 1990s who seemed to always have a smile on his face. Molly raced throughout the 1990s and in to the 2000s. The highlight of her ski racing career was winning 1995 US National Championship in 17-21 Women. Our heartfelt condolences to their family and friends.
Celebration of Life for Burt: 12/28 - 12-4:30 pm. Cluhouse 66 in Glendora. Open house style.
