February 24, 1991
Chisholm Ski Club, Rumford, ME
Fifteen Old Boys (two from the Central Division and 13 from the East) registered for competition on the K-62 meter jump. However, the oldest skier, Bob Hein of Drexel Hill PA fell on a practice ride and declined to ski in the competition.
The first IMC was hosted in Lake Placid in 1990 using five-year age groups: 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, etc. The U.S. Masters Committee agreed to align our age groups with those, but with far less skiers, ten-year age groups were chosen. In addition, the minimum age for a U.S. Masters skier was increased from 27 to 30. However, it was increased one year at a time so as not to cut out any skier who was a Master skier last year. This produced the following age groups at this 1991 event: 28-39, 40-49, 50-59, etc.
