post about regionals. After this one, I'll have to find something else to blog about(not broken equipment, I hope).
Anyway, here's Clint This was his first time qualifying for regionals, and his first tournament on the 5.5 foot ramp. The stiff head wind blew his tips into his face off the top, causing him to lose a lot of distance.
(remember, my camera sucks).
He was not happy with 105'. He was jumping solid 120 in practice the weekend before.
This just might be the best skiing picture I have ever taken. It looks like I took the time to set up the shot like a professional photographer. Don't be fooled, it was just dumb luck.

Cory Piercy's best event is jump. Naturally, I got a picture of him tricking. M3 jump Ran concurrently with M2 slalom, so no pics of Cory or Jim. If anybody out there has some, email them to me and i'll post them.
Not being a tricker, I think he was pleased.

Speaking of M2 slalom, I finally ran an opening pass at Water's edge. I tanked the opener there in 02 and 05. I missed a headwind 32off, but I did throw a big monkey off my back.
Driving home due west for three hours during the late afternoon/ early evening gave me a headache from constant squinting. I was happy to see the sun go down.
