The first ever Sammy C Invitational kicked off for training today at Mt. Hood.  We got up to the jump site at Windell’s late this morning to have a look at what Sammy built, and start testing it out before the contest tomorrow.  The jump is an easy 105 ft. to the knuckle and easily the biggest contest jump that most have ever seen.  After a few test jumps to get the speed right, the crew put on their gnarly boots and got after it.  Everyone was killing it and having fun on the jump. Unfortunately, Durtschi took a spill on his last jump and had to be carted off by the patrol.  We all have our fingers crossed that he will be good to go for the morning.

Check out some of the pictures, and keep it locked to NS for an edit by Mike Clarke.  We will have another update from the Sammy C Invitational for you tomorrow.
