The Fine Print:
First, form a team of like-minded, conniving friends or co-workers. Then build a dummy on skis or a snowboard. A couple things to remember: there will be children at the event- keep it reasonably clean, and it should resemble an organic life form. The dummies need to be delivered to the Summit Hotel Clock Tower by noon o’clock on February 9th. The dummies will be on display until 1 pm, when we start hauling them up the hill. The launching will start around 2:30. We will be launching dummies off a kicker on Ambush again, to the viewing delight of judges and guests.
Leave No Trace- Only weight your dummy with things that can be packed back out of here. Remember we have to clean this up and nobody wants to ride through gravel or dirt. So don't use concrete or sand - try water or get creative instead. Please limit buckets of paints and other materials that can stain the snow and make it melt faster.
Hints from year’s past:
Balance, balance, balance (2 skis, not one)
The heavier the better, while still being manageable by a couple of people
The crowd likes a theme
It can SELF-destruct; it doesn’t need your help (i.e. No pyrotechnics)
No Paint, or anything that will stain the snow, please, we still have a lot of season left and we don’t need brown or red snow for the rest of it.
Destruction on Impact
Non-organic life form category (in case you can’t make it human)
Awards for these categories will be given out at Whiskey Jack's after a short period of deliberation after the last dummy flies.
