    WOW, what a day. The talent that showed up at Ski Sundown was amazing. I can't imagine how the judges could sort out the seeding but they did pretty good, they didn't let me get past the qualifying round so they knew what they were doing

    The course was in good shape. For me it was as much an endurance test as it was a ski competition. my legs and back were aching.

    AZ'ers that qualified included Greg, 2knees, JP, 180 and 181. 180 + 181 were in the top 8 i think.

    Sundown should be proud, they put on a great event today.
    180 got hosed by some confusion. Completely hosed.

    Well, this is going to get discussed so I might as well put it out there, but there was one serious issue with the judging. Such is the game with a judged sport like competitive mogul skiing apparently. Luckily, both Bob Switzgable and Chris Sullivan acknowledge the screw-up. Anyway, 180's seeding was somehow lost, and unfortunately they couldn't seem to sort it out. Truly unfortunate. Alan is an incredible skier and has shown tons of support for Sundown this season. That coupled with the fact that Mrs. 180 was injured makes me really feel for the Belsky family tonight. Such good people who didn't deserve any of this. Those couple of items were the only negatives today.
    I ski double black diamonds.

    I had one sick ass no-ssack.

    AWESOME day. Truly awesome. I'm so glad my babysitting didn't fall through (like it almost did) because I had a fantastic time. I didn't ski much, but hanging with the AZ crew, taking pics, and watching the phenomenal talent was a real treat. Radio Ron was HYSTERICAL. We talked a few times. And Randy "The Hammer" is a sweetheart. There was a little confusion at the end of the day when he was trying to secure a poster for me and Betsy (one of the awesome Sundown Lift Ops crew) dragged me into the bar, gave me a beer, and introduced me to everyone as being "with the Hammer". I did my best to clear that up. But it was cool; I told him and he laughed. Then I got to hang out with Meathead Jen (2nd place in women's division for the mogul comp) for a bit (which led to more confusion as one of the other women thought I mentioned that Jen was staying with me tonight ). Awesome people. Awesome event. Awesome day.

    I have probably 500-600 pictures to process out of RAW format so it will be a while. But I'll do my best.

    that's too bad. i thought i heard the starter say something about mixing up bibs 713 and 714 and that it was fixed but i guess after i left it didn't turn out that way.

    Is there any news on Alan's wife?

    Brian has some but considering how many beers he had, it probably won't be tonight. SkiDork and Greg also shot vid.

    Grab 4 or 5 beers and sit tight. What I have (including a post ceremony Hammer interview) will be up tonight, but it'll be a few hours.
