Winter Sports Week

From a 1932 Newspaper found in my house – A group of civic boosters in Minot in 1932 were promoting the idea of  holding a Winter Sports Week in Minot. The event would begin the next year in 1933. One of the promoters was Casper Oimoen, of Olympic Skiing fame. Some of the events considered were skiing, Curling, Hockey games, Figure Skating, and Dog Sled races, (which were already held and sponsored by the Linos Club.) There was a possibility of holding the state bowling tournament to kick everything off.  Indoor events were also considered such as basketball. The Minot  Winter Sports week, if held, would be similar to the St. Paul Winter Carnival. Pictured below.... Casper Oimoen and the Great Northern Hockey Club.

  10. There are pro athletics bettors that make a decent pay by wagering on sports. Beside basic bets, wagering a companion that one's most loved sports group will win its division, for example, or purchasing a football "square" for the Super Bowl, sports wagering is ordinarily done through a bookmaker.nflstream
