In the late 1980s the ski programs for all Manchester High Schools were in jeopardy of being cut from the city budget. At this time Bob Gilman not only offered to fund all of the City’s high school ski racing teams, but also to coach them. From the teams reinstatement until his untimely death after a battle with cancer in 1995 at the age of 47, Bob remained as the champion of the ski program. He always had a love for skiing and also a great pride in McIntyre Ski Area. This race will be held in celebration of him and his efforts and will hopefully continue for years to follow.
