I just wanted anyone that's gonna be in the Houghton MI area to know that for winter carnival there is going to be a free style snow show in lot 24 by the SDC (on the MTU campus). This show is supposed to be pretty sweet so if anyone wants to come it's going to be at 12:00-2:00 2/8/07

I'll try and get some pics while I'm there and post them either thurs or fri


*EDIT*
One of the guys in Sledheads edited a video together for the show, here's the link:

Its nothing to special like X-games tricks or anything but still kinda cool to watch. I will admit though that they can do some decent tricks. I hope its free this year since its in lot 26.
if its free which it sounds like it may be, I would recomend attending.

Also there is going to be drag races at the range club on the 17th, weather permitting. usually kinda cool to watch for free i think. Entry costs though.

Hillcross up Ripley???[:p][:p]

If I can get my RMK dialed in right I think that'd be sweet to try, is there going to be an entery fee for it?

I would assume so as it will be a comp. The plans are in the works but its going to be between rippley and the range club as to when. As of now its just something that is soposed to happen. No comfermations or dates. I will post as soon as i know. Only thing bad about hillcross is if the crewmen dont grab you your sled could be toast. I'v watch a few guys slid down on there butts all the way down as their sled self destructed a few feet ahead. In the woods at least you can just dig it in so it will stay.

Here's a few pics from the show, wasn't too exciting though. I think it was too windy for any big stunts so the 4 guys that did do it were just doing basic stuff off the one ramp, But it was still better to be there than in class today[;)]

I'd post more pics but the SF server seems to be overloaded already and photobucket is being retarded so this is all for now, but I did upload them to facebook, so here's the link to there if it lets you see them:

did they do any tricks really. I missed both shows due to other priorities. Looks from the pictures like they weren't getting good launches.

Thats too bad. I know a lot of people that would have attended if it were not in the middle of the day while everyone was working.
