2007 COSS Open!

Post by Cat Young » Wed Oct 31, 2007 1:48 am

Fun was had by all at the 2007 COSS Open!

The hill was off the charts---- super fast, especially for the TS!

Thank you to all the Colorado peeps for putting on such a great event in a short amount of time.

Thanks to Zak for working hard on the prep for the contest & to his mom for a warm bed to sleep in for the weekend--- also to Zak's dad for cone-heading on Sunday, Jason & Terri--- I can't even begin to thank Terri for all the work she did-- shuttling skaters to the top, putting together the trophy ceremony, hosting the after party, etc....., Pappas 1 & Pappas 2 , the old men (Pirnack & Fluit--- I haven't heard that much grumbling about aches & pains since I visited my grandfather in the nursing home!) ;), the McLarens, the Reaves, Mac (thanks for the ride from the airport & all the laughs), CBark for showing up & showing us how the wiggle is really done & for taking me to the airport on Monday!<br><br>Thank you Pat for sitting at the timing table for 2 days! You yelled at me a couple times, but I got over it!
Thanks to Claude for 3 AWESOME courses!

Here are a few pics.
I'll post more later.

It felt like 40 below zero on Friday evening!

The tight was gnarly and three guys got injured, thus the small field.

Well, the tight was gnarly, but some of us just didn't skate it very well. "Gimme cone," my ass. :-) My streak continues...

Herewith, a few more photos:
