Already at the end of 1920’s there was a first ski jumping hill constructed by sportsmen from Zittau at the Hochwaldhang between Oybin and Jonsdorf in the Zittau Mountains.
In 1957 one of the first plastic covered ski jumps of GDR was set up and afterwards ran by police spots club Dynamo. Training and competition activities afterwards emerged, but then nearly vanished in 1972, when the very talented youth jumper Mathias Buse transferred to sports club Dynamo Klingenthal. He had a fabulous development there, so he became vice junior world champion in 1977 and one year later senior double world champion with gold medals on the normal hill and with the team at Lahti.
In early 1980’s ski club revived with a new ski jumping hill project. In October 1985 a new junior and pioneer hill with plastic mattings and a judge’s tower was inaugurated at the town Hain with a Trommel-Cup-competition, a GDR open competition of 12-year-olds which had nationally a very large reputation. Afterwards a central water spraying facility for the plastic mattings and a tiltable starting beam were installed. After the political turnover in 1989 the ski club decayed, ski jumping activities ended up and later the plastic mattings were removed. Although the ski jumps would still be usable in winter time this kind of sports could not revive. In 2006 a competition was organized for the 750th anniversary of Oybin, but it had only a symbolical character for the history of the town.

Ich bin dort im Rahmen des Trommelpokalsprunglauf 1969 gesprungen. War garnicht so schlecht die Anlage. Habe das gut in Erinnerung.

Sommer1951 Einsturz des Anlaufturmes an der Sprungsch.Oybin

[b]Im Sommer 1951 bestiegen eine Gruppe Leute den Anlaufturm um sich da fotografieren zu lassen . Plötzlich stürzte der Turm zusammen und begrub die Menschen zwischen die Trümmer. Fazit:17 Schwerstverletzte! Schanzenneubau . Im Winter 1952/53 konnte wieder gesprungen werden.

Ups da war ich ein wenig falsch. Das besagte Ferienlager war an der Kottmarschanze Eibau.

Erinnerungen an Ferienlager

Ist schon 38 Jahre her und wenn ich mich nicht irre war ich dort im Ferienlager. Doch ich erkenne dort nicht mal einen Gebäudekomplex ;.)

So verwildert das Gelände des Schanzenareals war, bewachsen mit Sträuchern und Bäumen kann man das gesamte Gelände jetzt wieder erkennen.
