Another great thread Wiredsport!!! Good luck to all the entries. I love the idea of getting more people involved in the sport.

Soapbox: When I was a little wipper snapper, my dad said "Son, you can either play hockey or ski." At the time I hated getting up at 3:00 am to play hockey, so it was skiing all the way for me! Fast forward 6 years and I'm now in grade 6, and my school has a 4 day field trip to a local hill. You could either board or ski, lessons and rentals included for the same price (no discount for owning your own equipment). So I asked my parents if I could snowboard instead! That was 1992 and I've never looked back.

Now snow sports are the things that help keep my family together. I meet my dad from across the country to board/ski and he's 70 this year! My GF of 4 years got into the sport because of me and loves it. My best friend did the same thing, and loves it. And now because of wiredsport my neighbour is getting his very first board and I'm sure it'll become a family sport for his young family as well! I THINK I'M GOING TO CRY!!!

LOL, anyway, this isn't an entry, it's just saying good on wiredsport for doing this kind of thing to encourage new people to ride!
