I am in it for the parade!

Whatever format and whatever points are awarded is fine with me. The emphasis should be on the Am's (or B and C's) to want to keep racing slalom.
My opinion never really counts..but my entry fee does!
I am the slowest COSS slalom racer..Lucky for you!

who cares - when was the last (only?) time that points got you laid?

Gary is right - the Pros are into it already, don't discourage the C class racers. If we quit then you big scary fast racers can go back to having the intimate circle jerks you had 5 years ago!

I don't know about that, but getting laid got me points (on my driver's license) once...moving vehicle and all. ;-)

Jack,

You ask an excellent question...and the way the system works now, there is no clear cut answer. I reckon the only answer would be to create a new "World Rankings" system as in golf....where basically everyone competes on the same level regardless of Pro/Am or Senior status. Look at Greg Normans recent performance at the British Open a few weeks ago, he moved up some 200+ points in the 'World Rankings' and qualified to play in next years Masters, not bad for a 53 year old. So if No. 16 is an Am (or senior), hell yes he earns more points than 17-48.

Accommodations!

Post by Claude Regnier » Thu Aug 28, 2008 6:21 am

As many of you were informed we were trying to rent a few big homes for us to stay in. Brian and the crew have been working hard on it. It hasn't been accomplished so we are all pretty much on our own to make the descisions.

Brian has fowarded all of us some excellent alternatives so please confirm and book fast to help them out. MB & I want to Thank Brian for all the work in advance again.
Many Happy Pumps!

**SCHEDULE CHANGE**

Sheer numbers of entrants are causing changes to the schedule

Qualifying will start around Noon Friday. We will qualify on the same dual Hybrid course we'll run on Saturday.

Friday's race will be a SINGLE lane 100 cone chalenge.

Saturday's Classes are being expanded to include a C class to allow for more racers.

The beginer race will be moved to Sunday to allow for more brackets Saturday.

An indoor location with polished concrete floor has been secured as a back up.

More information will be forthcoming, but the most important change is that you want to be in town by lunchtime Friday for qualifying.

Juliet at the Maplehurst Inn in Antrim offered the Chamber discounted room rates ($30.00 a person) if we fill the whole Inn.
If we don't fill the entire place, the discount is 10% off the normal rate... that includes a full breakfast every morning.

I just spoke with her & there are 6 rooms still available.
Some of the rooms sleep up to 5 people comfortably... one room has a full kitchen.

Log on to their website @ http://www.nh-inn.com/index-1.html and take a look at the rooms.
Call Juliet (owner) @ 1-603-588-3888 if you have any questions.

Let's try to book the Inn so we can get the killer discount of $30.00 per person per night!!!!

Driving Directions to Antrim + Directions from Airport

Post by Brian Beihl » Fri Sep 05, 2008 9:17 pm

Hi, Folks:

I just reposted these same directions at
http://www.slalomskateboard.com/Driving ... rimNH.html

Please give me a buzz at 603-620-8300 when you get close to Antrim so we can hook up and I can get you to your lodging.

Brian


Directions to
Antrim, NH
for Antrim Can/Am Championships

Below are written directions from Boston, Portland, Hartford, New York, & Burlington.
Antrim is located in south central New Hampshire, 1.75 hours from Boston, 2 hours from Hartford, 3 hours from Portland, and 3.5 hours from Burlington, 4 hours from suburban NYC.

Eastern Massachusetts:
There are a few ways to get here from Eastern Mass, one more direct than the other.
ROUTE A - DIRECT -- Recommended -- Take I-93 North to Concord. After the Hookset tolls ($0.75, cash lanes on left). A couple of miles past the tolls take exit right on I-89 North (marked to Vermont / Lebonon, NH) Take I-89 North about past Hopkinton, about 5 miles from Concord, to a LEFT EXIT (Exit 5) for U.S. Route 202 / Keene, NH. Follow Rt. 202 South through Henniker and into Hillsborough. Exit right on to an exit for Rt. 202 Antrim/Bennington. At the stoplight / McDonalds continue straight on 202. Follow south about 6 miles to downtown Antrim, then follow the "From the North" directions below.

ROUTE B - SHORTER BUT ON LOCAL ROADS Take Rt. 3 north to Nashua, NH from I-95 / I-495. Take Exit 8, marked for NH 101A Milford / Peterborough and the Monadnock Region. This is a bypass which will wrap you around to 101A. When you reach 101A (Light/Ground Round @ corner ) turn right. 101A is a shopping corridor and will be congested for about 7 miles. Prior to entering Milford, 101A intersects with 101 E/W. Go under the bridge and turn left on to 101 West to Keene/Peterborough/Wilton. Follow 101 west over the railroad tracks to a light, turning left. Stay on Rt. 101 about 2.5 miles past Wilton, where you will see a sign on the right for Rt. 31 North. Follow 31 North a couple of blocks and turn left past The Wilton Police station. Follow 31 through Lyndeborough and Greenfield. Just past the beautiful Greenfield Town House turn RIGHT and continue on Rt. 31. The sign should say to Bennington. Follow 31 into Bennington where you will turn right at the Bennington library. Following the signs to Rt. 202, turn left at the Bennington Garage. Rt. 202 will be ahead about four blocks. Turn right and follow the directions "From the South."


Western Massachusetts/Connecticut/New York
Take I-91 into Vermont. Just over the border, take Exit 3 marked for NH Rt. 101 and NH Rt. 9. At the base of the exit there is a rotary. Go half way around and go straight into New Hampshire. You'll travel through Chesterfield, Spofford and over the mountain into Keene. You'll pass a large shopping center on your left, then about 1/2 mile ahead there will be a light where Rt. 9 will split off from Rt. 101. Continue northeast on Rt. 9 for about 25 miles. You'll pass through Roxbury, Nelson, Stoddard, and then into western Antrim. This is moose country -- be alert while you're going through this area. After you pass Antrim's state rest area on the left, start looking for signs for Rt. 31 South on the RIGHT. Follow Rt. 31 all the way into Antrim's village. JUST BEFORE you hit downtown you will see a white church on your left and a small red brick house on your right. TURN RIGHT at West Street. Cross the bridge and follow the bright yellow Skateboard Slalom Clinic signs up the hill to School Street. On Friday, school will be letting out. PLEASE BE CAREFUL! Park in the 2nd parking lot and look for the registration tent by the flag pole.


Northern Vermont & Quebec
Take I-89 south from Burlington, VT and Hanover, NH to Exit 5, marked for Keene / Peterborough. Follow Rt. 202 South through Henniker and into Hillsborough. Exit right on to an exit for Rt. 202 Antrim/Bennington. At the stoplight / McDonalds continue straight on 202. Follow south about 6 miles to downtown Antrim, then follow the "From the North" directions below.

Maine & Eastern New Hampshire
Take Route 4/202/9 west from Portsmouth to Concord, NH. On the east side of Concord, merge on to I-393 which will intersect with I-93 in about four miles. Take I-93 South/Manchester to the south side of Concord where I-93 intersects with I-89 North. Take I-89 North about past Hopkinton, about 5 miles from Concord, to a LEFT EXIT (Exit 5) for U.S. Route 202 / Keene, NH. Follow Rt. 202 South through Henniker and into Hillsborough. Exit right on to an exit for Rt. 202 Antrim/Bennington. At the stoplight / McDonalds continue straight on 202. Follow south about 6 miles to downtown Antrim, then follow the "From the North" directions below.


From the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport
Approx. 50 minutes to Antrim

Follow the signs to exit the airport, which will spill you out on Brown Ave. You'll find a row of gas stations and convenience stores along the way if you want to get a snack before you leave. When you get to the I-293 overpass, turn right to get on the highway toward I-93. You'll come to a LEFT exit which takes you North toward Concord. Follow I-93N through the Hooksett tolls ($1.00 cash or EZ Pass), to the intersection of I-89 and I-93. Take I-89 North about past Hopkinton, about 5 miles from Concord, to a LEFT EXIT (Exit 5) for U.S. Route 202 / Keene, NH. Follow Rt. 202 South through Henniker and into Hillsborough. Exit right on to an exit for Rt. 202 Antrim/Bennington. At the stoplight / McDonalds continue straight on 202. Follow south about 6 miles to downtown Antrim, then follow the "From the North" directions below.

Local directions to Great Brook Middle School, Antrim, where free gym housing, registration and clinic will be held.
Main Street in downtown Antrim is also U.S. Route 202. All routes below will end up on Rt. 202.

From the south,
you will reach a hill, with red brick mills on your left. Continue through a blinking yellow light, town hall will be on your left, the Maplehurst Inn on your right. You will reach a "Y" in the road. Take the LEFT fork (Rt 31 North) then immediately your next LEFT (West Street). Cross the bridge and follow the bright yellow Skateboard Slalom Clinic signs up the hill to School Street. On Friday, school will be letting out. PLEASE BE CAREFUL! Park in the 2nd parking lot and look for the registration tent by the flag pole.

Ride Sharing from Airport

Post by Brian Beihl » Fri Sep 05, 2008 9:25 pm

We plan to offer some shuttle runs to the airport, but I need to narrow the times down.

1) If you're renting a car and are willing to help transport, please let me know what time you're coming in. Please send me an email with a Subject of "WILL TRANSPORT" with your itinerary so I can match you up with somebody who's renting a car. oldgoldjug@antrimcc.com

2) If you're NOT renting a car, please send me an email with a subject of "NEED RIDE" and your itinerary. If you've already contacted me, I've already got you on my list.

That's a huge. Thanks.

Rain Contingency for Racing

Post by Brian Beihl » Mon Sep 08, 2008 12:47 am

Hi, Racers:

At Joe's suggestion, we have set up a contingency location in case of weather. We have negotiated access to a former business forms printer's warehouse in Peterborough, 12 miles to the south.

IF the weather is projected to be bad on Friday, but not Saturday or Sunday, we'll squish Friday's race into Saturday's and/or Sunday and race outside.

IF more than one day is likely to be affected by the weather, we'll put the warehouse into use.
This is a 320' run in a big open warehouse, with lighting. The floor is very smooth, but will need to be swept. We'll bring down the ramps, but you'll have to provide the rest yourself!

I have pictures of the outside at
http://www.slalomskateboard.com/AntrimC ... gency.html

Hopefully, we won't need it!

Hi Everybody!

Information on rules and such will be out shortly but I wanted to make you aware of a couple of things.

1. THE PARADE. One of the really cool things about Antrim is the skaters march / ride in the parade. If you are equipped or inclined, please bring stickers, candy, menthol cigarettes to hand out to the kids and crowd. If you are sponsored you might hand out a sticker with your sponsors website stamped on the back.

2. The Beginner's race. For the third year in a row the kids from the town will assemble on the opposite end of our run out hill for a short, wide, straight race. This year we're going to rope it off during the GS. With 80 some participants in the GS, I expect each of you will have time to meet and assist these new racers. Do you have some bushings that are too squishy for you, some chunked up wheels? Bring em along and stoke out a new kid. We all wanna grow the sport. Here is your chance to do something about it.

3. Friday, September 19th, we will qualify for Saturday's racing and do the 100 cone challenge. It is also International Talk Like a Pirate Day. http://www.talklikeapirate.com/faq.html Now I'm not saying there will be any penalties for not talking like a pirate, but why chance it?

For Antrim virgins, you can see the hill here. Courses will be pretty close to the same as dictated by the contours of the hill.

Alright Boys and Girls,

If you have not paid, you need to do so tomorrow or contact Brian and tell him how you promise to pay in Maple Syrup and Wild Hickory nuts. Otherwise risk losing your space, we've got a waiting list to honor. Please paypal here;
http://www.slalomskateboard.com

Couple of extra items. Expect chilly nights and mornings, the forcasted low is in the mid 40's.

Also I have zero Cingular service in the whole town, but Verizon seems to work ok. You might let your loved ones know that you'll be hard to get a hold of.

Lou Statman is having "technical difficulties," so I'm posting this on his behalf. He needs a ride from the Manchester airport (uh, that's Manchester, New Hampshire, not England) to Antrim on Thursday. His plane arrives in Manchester at 3:40 p.m. Anyone got any room in their vehicle for him? He's friendly, intelligent and housebroken. (No lice, either. :-))

E-mail him at louisstatman at yahoo dot com.

Hi-Rez Pictures Needed for Newspapers

Post by Brian Beihl » Mon Sep 22, 2008 1:50 pm

Good Morning:

Thanks again for all who attended the Antrim race. It's raining this morning, so we really were blessed this weekend.

Say, I'm looking for hi-rez pictures (300 PPI or higher) of our winning racers, Richy, Joel, Lynn, Martin, Jason, Greg for the papers. I'm on a deadline today, so if you have some to share, email me ASAP. You'll get credit for the pictures.

Any other really great shots you can share would be welcome, too.

Thanks!

Picture of 100 Cone course + Timer Picture

Post by Brian Beihl » Mon Sep 22, 2008 3:39 pm

Hi,

Just got word that I need a picture of Friday's 100-cone course & picture of the timer to verify Richy's record. If you have those, please send to me ASAP to brianbeihl@slalomskateboard.com or oldgoldjug@antrimcc.com.

Thanks!

For those that do not go to the "other" site...

Lavin falls on grenade and saves thousands at the Antrim CanAm.

Hardly, but there was the psycho chic that someone had to get rid of so I volunteered. It was a bit like jumping on a grenade but getting to drink beers first.

Antrim rocked. Went to compete with myself (again) and somehow lost?? Anyway, I have never seen such an event with township support such as this from the pastor to the Inn Keeper to Betsy and her apple crisps to Brian B. and his tireless event support and work. Truly amazing. Small town America lives.

Special thanks to Hell Fadell, Richie, Keith, and Marty for whom without I would not have a chance reaching any potential left in me; you guys are selfless dudes and I am proud to always feel included in your company. Rob, you escaped the shrapnel and ended up in the pink so-to-speak; thanks for the fun. Joe you're getting plenty of thanks for a great job done - it was an epic weekend. Mig, you're amazing period. George, you added a fresh touch to the emcee weekend and no one could ask for a better co-host or race coordinator (whatever you were doing) on the weekend. To Emily thanks for the free sex (was truly a spiritual evening) and for putting the chill into Adam's soul. Lastly Mr. Barrett, it's been too long since we've seen you and it should always be that way...

Many thanks to Joe I, Brian B., Mig, Glenn and Krispy Hill Timing for putting on such a great race event!

George Pappas and Marty Schaub also did great jobs helping with the MCing.

Great meeting the racers from all over - thanks for coming to the northeast!

100 cone verification

Post by Marty Schaub » Tue Sep 23, 2008 12:28 pm

I know that pictures of the course will not be a problem. I had Michele Gamache(?) take a pic of the timing rig after Richy's run so that does exist. There were other people with cameras there but I know he took a pic for sure.

Hell-Fadell took a snap of the timer and PC pretty sure. That man takes awesome pictures. Also, we have like 50 people that witnessed the event 3 times... well two perfect clean runs with a 10" single cone on the third and one kick-ass world record setting time. If there is any argument on the record I got two high-kicking black belts in my house that are available for hire-out... and for Richie they'll do anything gratis :)

I got Richy's run and the timer on tape. I'll post it when I catch up.
In the meantime, this was a fast run too...

There is not (yet) any argument about the record. The ISSA rules for world-record reporting call for some sort of documentation to be presented.

Brian asked me if he could submit a photo of the timer and the course as documentation (since he thought they were available). I agreed.

The documentation is so that we won't have the opportunity to argue about this in the future.

BTW: There was an unofficial time reported of 20.179 -- so it would be very nice to have an official timekeeper or race organizer submit the official time.

That time is wrong. I was the official timekeeper. I will let the race organizer divulge and submit the official time.

Hi This Joe your event organizer. I have the recorded times and am waiting the photgraphic proof from the run. Its on video and stills. No sense in rushing until we have the documentation and its verification.

One more thank you...to everyone who signed my now retired Avalanche Ice Rocket snowboard - it looks great and is already on the wall!! I think I got all racers on there, plus George P., both of Joe's parents, Maria Carrasco, and Brian Biehl and Dave Kirkpatrick from Antrim...the local police officer was the only one who refused to sign it! ;-)
