boarditup Posted August 11, 2008 Share Posted August 11, 2008 On August 9, I hosted at tournament at Plaicd Waters.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Lots of great skiing.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Many skiers set new PBs and 35 off was run several times.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The CJ, after tying his PB on his first set, was suspicious.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â After the tournament he measured the course and the worst case was 3 cm off.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The real story was the novice division.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Three new kids in their first tournament.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â One girl, 10 years old, was not going to ski.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I told her that we would be patient even if it took her 12 tries to get up.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â She got up on her first try and took to the novice course.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â By the end of the second round she had the green balls down.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Her smile was incredible.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â One of the teens made 32 mph, 34 mph, and then scored 4 at 36 mph.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The first time he had ever run either 34 or 36 mph.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The other kid, also set a new PB by running the course at 30 mph.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It was a great time!Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â We now have 3 new slalom junkies.
