Engineering Associates was a proud sponsor of the First Annual Saratoga Skijoring Races!

The event was presented by the Saratoga Lions Club, Carbon County Visitors Council and the Platte Valley Jaycees.
Company staff instrumental in the event were:

• Lions Club Member Adam Schalk who participated in the initial conception, preparation of the track and was a gate judge.

• Craig Kopasz helped with course preparation and was a fierce competitor placing second in the Sport Division.

• Karl Smith’s family covered the spectrum from course prep to gate judge to competitors.  Son Tristan placed second in the Novice Division and put on quite a show for the crowd!
