Here is the torch...

for the Iowa games. Thanks to the 20mph tail wind, we couldn't light it.

Ahh, the state champoinship tournament. A place where slalom specailists will strap on a pair of trick skis and look silly, all in the name of the coveted team title. Dream Lake estates has held a tight grip on it for as long as I have been skiing in Iowa (circa '02). Maybe this was the year that the trophy heads back to it's rightful place, eagle lake in Evansdale.

It would have to return home despite me. I missed 28 off and had an average trick round. My one scoring jump was a now-meager 112

That landing hurt

rykert @state Not much pop off the top.

rykert passes I hate tailwinds. If it were not for team points, I would have scratched jump.

Pat and Clint (no business trip that weekend!) had a better handle on the conditions.
Here's Clint.

Clint @state 1 A good jump, considering he has been in a bit of a jump slump lately. If conditions are even tolerable at regionals, he could easily PB.

pat jump state1 Nice jumping, Pat! 102' on a single on the first jump a year after a NASTY concussion.

Friends don't let friends jump with Hydrogyn helmets.

We lost to Dream Lake by a mere 100 NOPS points. Damn!
