History:

Already in the 1930’s a ski jumping hill existed at the Hoherodskopf near Schotten in Hessia, but this one was in a bad condition after World War II.
So in 1953 the SC Friedberg began with the help of TGV Schotten and under the lead of council member and architect Wilhelm Momberger the construction of a new jump. The jump was then named after the state parliament member Kurt Moosdorf, who support the construction very strongly. Depending on the snow conditions every year district championships of the former ski district Vogelsberg-Wetterau-Westerwald where hosted. Hessian championships were only held 3 times, because the ski jump was too small with a K-Point of only 32 m.
In 1972 the jump was converted with the help of American soldiers from Hanau. Bombing and soil moving work had to be done in the outrun in order to reach a hill size of K43. The outrun was also shaped like an arena and enlarged. The final works in the above third of the landing hill could unfortunately not be completed, because the district of Büdingen was destroyed through the land reformation. Friedberg was now member of the Wetteraukreis and Schotten part of the Vogelsbergkreis. Short time later the postal service built a sending pole directly at the ski jump and the leading of the new district had little interest in completing the ski jump project and so the facility was closed and finally removed in 1976.

Woher stammt die Angabe zum Schanzenrekord? Ich meine 34 m und mehr seien schon Ende der 50-er Jahre erreicht worden.

Archiv

gibt es im Vereinsarchiv noch Aufzeichnungen (z.B. Siegerlisten) aus den Jahren 1955 bis 1960 die Kurt-Moosdorf-Schanze betreffend?

Schade

zufällig habe ich übers Internet erfahren, dass die Schanze, wie so viele kleinere Schanzen in den Mittelgebirgen, abgerissen wurde. Was hatten wir da Ende der 50er Jahre für einen Spass. Vielleicht sollten sich die "alten Kämpen" aus dieser Zeit, die noch am Leben sind mal treffen.
