August 1, 2004, Pinnacle Slush Cup!!
« on: 08/01/04, 05:05 PM »

Damn that was fun!!! Grin Grin Grin  The Second Annual Slush Cup is in the books and I don't see how it could have been much better. The weather, the pond, the crowd, and some truly memorable runs across,through,and under the slush. All of it was just great!   Skip turned in the winning run with the always popular cross two bodies of water and run your skis fifteen feet up onto the gravel beach tactic ! Nobody saw that coming!  Cool
Here he is in the winners circle gettin a big hug from Maddog

Thanks to everyone for a great day, I'm already looking forward to next year! -----    Jerry

If I'd known there was a hug from Mad Dog at stake, I'd've been there.  As it is, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with written reports and photographs.

Wow, what a day, 20 "slush cuppers" participating in the 2nd annual event!  Grin  As the day went on, the sun heating the slope and the competition, we moved from the "kiddie" pool to "BIG" water, with higher speeds, bigger splashes, wet boots, and many laughs, finishing up with our usual tailgate party at the end.   Grin
Can't wait until next August.   Cool

Wow.
Randy's the man for getting his viddy processed and posted so quick.  Nice job Randy.
I can't think of a better way to get fall turns in.  What a hoot.  Thanks all, for showing up and helping make it a time to remember. We even drew a spectator crowd of climbers at the top of Castle Peak; we could hear them cheering up there.  Ran into one on the way down and he said they liked Jimjar's crash into the water the best... the one where he went totally submersed and lost his hat.  
Thanks also to the MadDog for putting on another great tail gate party and bbq.
I got a feeling next year will be even better.  
Now to get a full card full of pics culled and posted...

Thanks Jerry, my fellow participants, and the fine, fine people at Olympia beer without whom the day would not have been possible.  I can say without question this was the best Slush Cup I've ever been to, and I look forward to 2005.

I looked through my pics last night and there's some really good ones; I'll post them tonight.

Thanks, Jerry, Ron, Mad_Dog and gang for another great time skiing!

Sounds and looks like it was a BLAST!

I was up til 4 AM at the going away party for a good friend of mine. (She's moving to Santa Fe).  Needless to say, my day was just beginning as the turns were being made in the slush!  Look forward to being able to attend next year.

yup, who would've thought that 160 vertical feet of snow and a meltwater pond could be so much fun.  
Had a great day up there, hopefully meet up with some of y'all for bigger trips this winter.

Mine are split into my favorites:

And my almost favorites:

For some reason webshots is being fussy tonight - if you get a screen that says something to the effect of "This album has been moved", just hit refresh on your browser once or twice - that should take care of it.

enjoy!

Outstanding Company!!
What a great time!! The pictures just bring back the memories! I love Skip's shot of Pete doing the "Pete Rose" into home plate! A must see!! Great pictures by all!! Thanks Mad Dog for the Home Wrecker! Thanks JW for all your efforts to make it happen! A great way to bring in August and clean my Tele boots. I can't wait to check out Randy's Viddy. Great meeting new faces and look forward to us sliding down hill in the future.

OK kids I have to say I'm sorry. I got new skis and forgot everything else, so the few pics I got are from the approach and one of Jerry on the way down the skree field. Good views but no action.

the shots I got are here

Sorry I missed it - next year I will line up child care if I have to. The video is great! I like the progression from cautious to all-out. Haven't had a chance to look through the photos yet, but with all of the good photographers I'm sure there are some great shots. Congratulations to all on what was obviously a perfect way to get in some fun August turns!
