History:

The “Glück-Auf-Schanze” at Bockau was constructed by dedicated members of the local ski club in handcraft and by many voluntary hours of work in summer 1955 and inaugurated on March 3, 1957. Refering to this Friedhold Plänitz should be mentioned as one of the initiators of this construction, who had managed the fortunes of the ski club for many years, too.
Since 1953 there had been a smaller ski jump on the same slope in the forest, which became insufficient for the expectations of the ski jumping fanatic people of Bockau. So there was built a new ski jump with a 10 meter high steel tower which had a total height of 14 m due to wooden superstructures. District championships and many regional competitions were hosted depending on the snow conditions. Then the hill even got a plastic covering in 1971 and in 1972 the smaller ski hill was set up.
The biggest competition was the so-called “drum cup of the GDR” which was preceded by a profile modernization of the hills. From 1994 to 1996 another conversion of the ski jump according to latest standards was performed, but the jump remained as a winter hill.
Unforgettable in the history of the club is the 40-year-old tradition of the “Buchberg-Run”, a cross-country competition departing from the ski jumping facility, which was started in 1958, but continued as a summer cross-run after 1998.
Due to low usage and declining condition of Glück-Auf-Schanzen, they were deconstructed in summer 2015.
