Contest Info: ***
DON'T MARK YOUR CALENDARS YET!!! Due to the "Corona-you-know-what" HOPEFULLY THIS THINGY WILL STAY ON THE POSTED DATE-BUT IT'S VERY SUBJECT TO CHANGE!!!!, I'll be making periodic calls to check on the hill being reserved by others and I'll post on the SLALOM forum if things get nixed or changed. I'll try posting on the FaceBook CSA page also.

DISTPANS AND LEAFBLOWERS!!! -This is the time of year for falling remnant 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 no one but you will be responsible for your injuries. No one but you will be to blame for eating too much for common sense either.

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: No Timers, No Start-Ramps(push start),Non-racing slalom fun skateboarding session

FOOD: Bring Your Own Lunch will be the likely food scenario this year instead of free BBQ due to the Corona-you-know-what.

NEWBIES!! Skate-wrench gear-head session and slalom board tuning and advice all day long!!! Great Bushing free schwag to those in need courtesy of Riptide (Thanks Riptide!)

COURSES: 2 courses, one big open-ish, 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-OK, maybe it will, unless it's not. Both will have the usual Pauliwog mixed rhythm and features since he's probably the one setting the courses again unless someone beats him to it, which noone ever seems to so, noone is to blame for that except everyone that fails to set courses before Pauliwog does.

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.

See you all there! - Vic
