Description Fall 2005, No. 24 J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah Editor: Mike Korologos 2005 Ski Affair To Honor 13 Racers, Janet Lawson Speed will be the by-word at the 2005 Ski Affair, Thursday, Oct. 27, at the Little America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City -and we're not talking about the pace with which ski stories of old will be told among the 600 history-bent ski enthusiasts in attendance. We're talking speed, as in the prerequisite for winning major ski, biathlon and cross-country races during the 1950s and 1960s. Those exploits will earn 13 skiing speedsters from the Intermountain Region the coveted History Maker Awards at the 15th annual Ski Affair. In addition, former competitor in premier races and long-time "Grande dame" of skiing in the region, Janet Quinney Lawson, will receive the prestigious S.J. Quinney Award for her contributions to the sport. The Salt Lake City resident will be recognized for being a major benefactor of matters pertaining to preserving the region's ski history, primarily through her support of the J. Willard Marriott Library's Ski Archives. The Ski Affair is an annual fund-raising event for the Ski Archives, which collects, pre- 2005 Ski Affair Thursday, October 27,2005 6:00 pjTi. $/O/per person oday! serves and makes available to researchers thousands of ski related photos, hundreds of scrapbooks, special collections, documents, files and films, including the records of the Organization Committee of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. Tickets for the Ski Affair are $70 per person and $1,500 for a sponsor table of 10, a portion of which is tax deductible, according to Barbara Amidon, who chairs the 25-mem-ber volunteer Ski Affair board of directors. Reservations must be made by Oct. 20. They can be made on line at or by phoning the U. library at 801-581-8558.
