he LAFD made a strong showing at the first annual World Police and Fire Win- ter Games at Mammoth Mountain. The


LAFD team of active and retired members, ten in all, earned 18 Medals: 11 Gold, four Silver and three Bronze medals. In addition, there were three fourths, three fifths, one sixth and three sevenths. The events consisted of Giant Slalom,


Slalom, Dual Slalom and Super Giant Slalom in both alpine and snowboard, as well two Nor- dic events with racers from across the globe. Our results as follows in the Alpine


• 50-59 yr. old “A’s” - Kim Ingram – Silver


• 50-59 yr. old - Bobby Hatfield – Bronze • 70 yr. old plus - Bill Archibold - Gold.


Giant Slalom:

were: Scott Anderson 7th Slalom, 4th Giant Slalom and 4th in Super G, Marty Riviera 5th Slalom, 7th Giant Slalom and 7th in Super G, Tony Verela 6th Slalom, 6th in Giant Slalom. These races are determined by hundreds and thousands of a second. In snowboard, Jeff Moir raced in the


50-59 yr. old Snowboard Division and com-


peted in the Seed Race, Giant Slalom, Slalom, Dual Slalom and Super Giant Slalom. Jeff boarded his way to Gold, Gold, Gold, Gold and Gold. You could hear comments like, “Who is that guy,” “The Dude is almost 60 years old” and “He’s frick’n fast too.” And “like father, like son,” Jeff’s son Robert, a Federal Fire- fighter from Louisiana, grabbed two Golds and a Bronze in the 18-39 yr. Snowboard Division. The Nordic 7.5 skate (AKA cross coun-

Rule) Bill Archibald was the sixth fastest racer on the mountain in the “Supper Fast” Super Gi- ant Slalom.
