Edmund (Skip) Hommel just finished in 8th place at the nationals. What makes this
so impressive to me is that Skip did not get up on one ski until he was 38 years old.
He also skis on a public pond in Ma with a relatively short season. The best part is
that Skip is a better guy than he is skier he will help any one at any-time and gives back a
ton to the sport. In our short New England summers he usually makes it to about 12
tournaments a year both awsa and int events. He takes his promo Prostar to many events
and usually spends most of day driving and or judging. Could not happen to a nicer guy, he also
has a great wife (Julie) who also goes to helps out and skis at all the tournaments.
