kk.. this is what i posted on their facebook group.. they haven't posted back but i'll let u guys know what's up... and please criticize my post if something is wrong/ should add/ or what was good. Thanks!!
i'm glad someone is finally taking initiative on this
idea, I tried to get the ball rolling a couple of years ago, but never
seemed to get enough interest from people to help out..
anyways.. Here's what I think,
of the guys was telling me that you guys are wanting this to make this
a snowboarder only comp, I personally think (being a skiier) thats the
worst idea ever, now a days the majority of jib comps have both skiiers
and boarders unless the major sponsor is a ski or board company.
- location, I think the most logical spot on campus would be right in
front of schmon in the big open field, be a perfect set up there.
- Setup, we will obv need lots of scalfolding for a massive drop in
(maybe copy the Georgian set up). As for rails, due to limit space, you
can't have anything to fancy... here are some ideas.. a long mellow
down rail,, a DFD box, some sick shit could get thrown down,,, a flat
box (maybe at the bottom for a last hit?)
Forth - Since this event is brand new, maybe just make it a Jam format
with prizes for best trick or something? Or have 2 events, a jam format
during the day, then a comp at night with riders having to summit
videos, previous comp results and sponsors that they have.
Date, November is such an iffy month, could be so unpredictable, and
hulling snow from a local rink could be a big task if its like 10-20
degrees out. Maybe hold it out till December (before exams) or maybe
make this a frost week event, sponsored by BUSU.
Sixth – sponsors,
there are a few shops in st kits that might be interested, the skate
shop just off st. pauls, pro ski shop up on Geneva, West 49 (never
know), Kissing Bridge or Holiday Valley and I guess any other local
shops in the Niagara region would be interested since this is a first
in this area. I doubt you will be able to get any big names to sponsor
this event since its such a low key event, but you never know…
Seventh – the biggest challenge for an event like this is insurance.
Could be an issue with Brock depending how anal they will be about this
Last – after party would be soo live at issacs.
