Newschoolers and @Windells are a classic combination. You don't have to wind the clock back far to reach a time when there was a Newschoolers week at the camp on Mt. Hood every summer. @Mr.Bishop was 'On The Road' back then, causing mayhem and toeing the line of what could be considered acceptable behavior at a summer camp. The eagle-eyed among you may notice a pre-fame Alex Hall in this one...
As Doug wrote after the event, "camp is a special thing. Sure, you get to rip laps in a super fun park right in the middle of summer, but you also develop an extremely close relationship with people who regularly you might not - and those times stick with you forever."
The recap edit of the previous year's Newschoolers Week, filmed by none other than @gravel , brings back a lot of memories too: G-d up @skimanskimanskim , @crazy_karl as a park rat, Tucker Fitzsimmons as a camper, and an appearance from the legendary Matt Heffernan (SIP).
After a few years on hiatus, this summer sees Newschoolers return to Windells. The 18th-24th of July will be Newschoolers Week on the Palmer Glacier and fittingly, we'll have Gavin out there repping NS. We're stoked to welcome Parker White ( @P-White ), Duncan Adams ( @duncanadams ), and Jake Mageau as our guest pros for what is sure to be an epic week.
