You’ve probably heard it before: you look to your left, then to your right. If neither of those people get cancer in their lifetime, you will. You may have to leave your basement in order for that statistic to apply, but the cold truth - in all seriousness - is that it does. Cancer makes it easy for all the other things in your life to fade in significance. The new skis you want this winter, that kid you had an argument with in NSG; none of that shit matters as soon as the big C rears its head and turns everything you’ve ever known inside out.
So then it’s hard to understand why as skiers do we get so bent out of shape about things that on a grand scale have virtually no bearing. You think dressing hood is stupid; someone else thinks tight pants are effeminate. I hate the Olympics; he trusts that it will send our sport to new heights. Somewhere along the way it seems we lost sight of what’s important. We slide down mountains on trumped-up pieces of wood, and then get taken back to the top on high-speed couches to do it all over again. Some of us are even lucky enough to have helicopter access to the most remote locations on the planet just so that we can ski on real mountains. And yet through all of that we still find the time to bitch at one another on the internet.
Well Newschoolers, let’s turn a new leaf.
On behalf of the all of us here, I am proud to announce the first ever Newschoolers Movember contest! This is our chance to put differences aside and combat the real enemy: that dickhead Cancer. So check your ego at the door, forget the Olympics for a minute and concentrate that fury lurking inside you into the burliest, manliest, most awe-inspiring moustache the internet has ever seen.
This is not your ho-hum, everyday, run-of-the-mill Movember contest, this is Newschoolers ya heard? We know what you’re capable of, and we have the resources to reward it.
- The winning individual with the highest donation will receive a prize pack from Electric Eyewear
- The top five will receive a prize pack courtesy of NS
- The top 10 will receive The Newschoolers Yearbook and a NS sticker pack
- The top 20 will receive NS sticker packs
In addition to prizes for NS Movemberites, we’re putting out a call to those corporate sponsors who want to get involved in a worthy cause. If you’re a brand, a resort, or a person in the know, we ask you to sponsor our efforts and add that little extra incentive for NS’s facial hair enthusiasts. Don’t worry, we aren’t forgetting you either: the highest donation will receive an NS ad package valued at $2000. Don't have funds but still want to donate product or exposure?
