Organizer: Pauliwog-Bringer of Rain
Contest Info: ***

DISTPANS AND LEAFBLOWERS!!! -This is the time of year for falling acorns, twigs and squirrels chasing the acorns.Since this is not city sanctioned, the city Parks and Rec dept probably will not have cleaned it recently.

HELMETS: Yeah fool, what do you think? It's on a hill on pavement. Hills Kill. Everything else is recommended strongly as far as pads and wrist guards or slide gloves.

BEWARE: This is an At-Your-Own-Risk activity and noone but you will be responsible for your injuries.

BE ADVISED: This is an "Unscheduled drop in usage of a municipal recreation facility" which means that "we" don't own or hold title to the hill and we may have to leave if we're told to or if there is another event that has been scheduled. So bring your park decks as a backup plan.

SPECIAL BONUS: You'll be one of the coolest people in the whole world if you bring your slalom cones, chalk and/or brooms, dust pans or leaf blowers. Really, you'll be "that" cool.

WHAT: Nonracing slalom skateboarding session and Free BBQ! Meat & Nonmeat burgers and sausages, salad, etc. OR, if it's too hot and I'm short on time, I'll bring an assortment of sub sandwiches.

COURSES: 2 courses, one big openish, Gianty slalom for the longboarding types and people into GS, the other course will be a techy hybrid tighter course than the other one but not "that" tight. Both will have the usual Pauliwog mixed rythm and features.

WHERE: Salem Oregon, Bush Park Soap Box Derby Hill.

DIRECTIONS: I-5 to South Salem Oregon. Take the Hwy 22 Exit West (toward the Pacific Ocean and away from the Cascades), it will become "Mission Blvd", follow it as it weaves around, you'll pass K-Mart, keep going and going, you'll go up over an overpass then under an underpass -watch out for the surprise stoplight, soon you'll see the huge forested "Bush Park" to your Left(South, in the general direction of Peru) and the Salem Hospital on your Right(North, you know, like, ummm Canada). Look for the parking to the park on the Left, or keep going to the next stop light, turn left and park on that street and walk over to the hill or keep going and turn Left again to the parking on the top of the hill. It really is that easy! Watch for signs about parking space or time limits and getting busted for parking anywhere too long.
1st Place Finisher: Gary Neuhoff
2nd Place Finisher: Paul Steiger
3rd Place Finisher: Pete Ingraham
Overall Results: Burgers were frying(actually grilling but it doesn't rhyme with fly'n) and slalom'rs fly'n through the courses. Burgers, lots of blabbing, and plenty of cone pumping action was had. Jackman held a beach-blanket wrench-party session helping others fine-tune their setups. Thanks Everyone.
