PostSat Jun 20, 09 1:20 am    HR "Slider Jam" - THANK YOU'S+PHOTOS!!!! Reply with quote

I'm super tired, but stoked to be home and ready to sleep hard for a couple of hours before going back to the Sandbar for morning cleanup.
I am happy that I can relax knowing that there are some very cool people making sure all things are running smoothly overnight at the Sandbar (Thanx - Janet, Matt, Dave, Chooch, Suds, Nic, Phil, and anyone else who stayed and helped).

Big Props to Wally from IPS for working with 2nd Wind to make this happen. It's the shops that work together that can get stuff like this happening.
Thank you to "The Surf Vipers" for ditching out on an actual paying gig, to come play for us at the Sandbar.
Also, thank you to Erik Kerr of Crestline Construction who arranged for us to have a 20cubic yard dumptruck to bring not just one, but two full loads of snow down from Timberline Resort.

Thank you to our event supporters-
Sushi Okalani - Justin gave us some of the best raffle prizes that we have ever had, at least 5-6 $30 gift certificates for Sushi!!! And loaning us his 6000watt generator which powered the band all night.
Nic - DC Shoes - You and your boys put on an excellent show and were amazing to watch sculpting the snow and prepping it just the right way.
Dave - Slingshot - I have you to thank for my horse voice cause' you gave us so much shwag to throw out, my voice wore out. And, for helping with the trailer at the last minute.
MONSTER ENERGY DRINK - for the endless supply of beverages and the very sweet tents.
The REAL Kite crew for coming all the way out from Hatteras just so shovel snow for us all morning.
Nick at Naish for the hidden beverages that were sitting out in the bushes.
Dakine - for matching as many prizes as Slingshot

Definitley not one to be overlooked, A-Train!!!!! for handling the parking, and any issues we needed help with at the last minute.

I hope we can do this again next year, but will have to look into making this a legit sponsored event since this is getting pretty damn big. Stay posted and we'll see what we can do, bigger and better.

See you all Saturday night at the River City for Ben Wilson's World Premiere of "COMING TOGETHER" and live music from "The Holiday Friends".


Pepi, Erica and the 2nd Wind Crew[/b]

our local kite community---who have supported us all through the build by lending a hand here and there, bringing us beer and food(janet) cause we were working too hard to eat or much less go get some. so many people were down to help---i didn't have enough work for everyone. a lot of whom don't even hit rails

Huge acheivement, very impressed on your work and craftsmanship. The complete build of your fun box from planning stage to getting it in the water and set up is amazing. Can't say enough for the hospitality and stoke from you guys.

Thanks,
