    Who all is going to hit up the slides?

    ON a side note: This meet is the one that I look forward to all year long as it always brings in a crowd, we get to see faces that not a lot of people see all the time...

    Thoughts?

    You know I am hitting the alpine slides. I also have my friends Steve, jeff and matt who are coming who is goping to do it. Noah already said he was in to slide em down. I believe Darcy said he wanted to try and ram Noah from behind (not in a sexual way mind you), and I believe Chris and matt said they would try it.....

    I'm definitly going on the slide. Last year when I was up there I watched an employee go down the track and learned a trick to go REALLY fast...like flying off the banks fast. So I'm definitly down, and you're going to have to catch me before you can hit me :p

    What about adding underneath the title of your AutoX sticky... "and other upcoming local events" and post the NH Run in it with a link to Bill's thread in the other forum. Just a suggestion.

    I will definitely be hitting the slide. I've been going on that slide since before I was tall enough to go alone. You guys will have to watch and learn how it's really done. :D

    Actually, there is a much better one (over a mile!) on Mt. Pico in VT. VT run anyone? ;)

    Alpine slide:

    concrete chasm running down the side of the mountain reminiscant of a bobsled track, that one would ride down on a plastic sled with wheels, sitting upright and hittinng speeds of 25-30 MPH.....

    fun for all, as long as you don't fall off........francios, you gotta do it, its a blast.....

    although it certainly bites to get tossed off the track, it certainly is entertaining for the guy behind you that gets to watch someone go flying off the track like a matchbox car.

    I think I'm going to bring a longsleeve sweatshirt to wear for some protection. Bare skin + fine concrete + speed = nasty burns.
