Ok fellow shred heads.. So the 06-07 Snowboarding season is upon us. Here's a few tips to get you good and ready =D 

For those of you whose season has already ended due to injury, court dates, perhaps jail time, lack of cheddar to put in your tank if your so unlucky as to have to commute,  or even appointments for AA...

just some thoughts to prepare for next year..

To prepare for the snowboarding season, try these activities and preperations before you go to the mountain:

Soak your gloves in water and store them in the freezer after every use.

Fasten a small, wide rubber band around the top half of your head before you go to bed each and every night.

If you wear glas*es, begin wearing them with glue smeared on the lenses.

Throw away a hundred dollar bill - now.

Download all of last years snowboard video soundtracks onto your iPOD. Hide in a freezer box with your eyes closed and day dream your on the slopes.

Find the nearest ice rink and walk across the ice 20 times in your boots carrying your board and other gear. Pretend you are looking for your car.

Sporadically drop things.

Place a small but angular pebble in your shoes, line them with crushed ice,and then tighten a C-clamp around your toes.

Buy a new pair of gloves and immediately throw one away.

Secure one of your ankles to a bed post and ask a friend to run into you at high speed.

Go to McDonald's and insist on paying $8.50 for a hamburger. Be sure you are in the longest line.

Clip a lift ticket to the zipper of your jacket and ride a motorcycle fast enough to make the ticket lacerate your face.

Drive slowly for five hours - anywhere - as long as it's in a snowstorm and you're following an 18 wheeler.

Go outside, close your eyes, throw your cell phone as far as you possibly can. Now open your eyes and try to find it.

Fill a blender with ice, hit the pulse button and let the spray blast your face. Leave the ice on your face until it melts. Let it drip into your clothes.

Dress up in as many clothes as you can and then proceed to take them off because you have to go to the bathroom.

Slam your thumb into a car door. Don't go see a doctor.

Repeat all of the above every damn day of the week until it's time for the real thing.

I believe that I should win the Burton Retro Twin Board; not for myself but for my wonderful husband. Who is a great father of three little girls and honestly deserves a break from all of his hard constant work and not to mention a break from his wife.  
 
I wrote this poem on his behalf:
 
MAY I GO TO THE SNOW WHERE I FEEL FREE?
MAY I GO?
MAY I GO NOW?!
DON'T YOU THINK THE TIME IS RIGHT?
MAY I SAY GOOD-BYE TO PAIN-FILLED DAYS OF WORK AND ENDLESS NIGHTS?
I AM LIVING MY LIFE AND HAVE DONE MY TIME, AND AN EXAMPLE I HAVE TRIED TO BE, SO CAN I TAKE THE STEP BEYOND AND SET MY SPIRIT FREE? 
IT IS AT THE MOUNTAIN WHERE I WANT TO BE. 
SOMETHING SEEMS TO DRAW ME TO THE SNOW; LOVING AND LIGHT.
CLOSER TO GOD I FEEL, AS THE LIFT TAKES ME  TO WHERE I WANT TO BE.
AT THE TOP AT THE BEAUTY HE HAS GIVEN US!
I WANT TO GO!
I REALLY DO!
BUT I WILL TRY TO LIVE  JUST ONE MORE DAY IN THIS PAIN FILLED WAY WITHOUT THE SNOW WITHOUT THE BEAUTY WITH OUT THE PEACE
SNOW WONT BE FAR, I PROMISE THAT!
WE WILL ALL BE AT THE TOP IN THE GLORY AND THE BEAUTY THAT GOD HAS SET ASIDE FOR ALL OF US.
WE WILL ALL SOON BE FREE!
 
I DEDICATE THIS TO MY WONDERFUL & DESERVING HUSBAND. WHO ALWAYS THINKS OF OTHERS BEFORE HIMSELF.  I LOVE YOU!

So how many girls do you know from Mississippi dying to learn to snowboard?  Not many huh….. Any excuse to head to the mountain works for me.  I need a board so I can make a business trip out there for a lesson and a cute outfit.

haha here's my first entry

Sierra Rap

 

The username’s Snowace and I got a lot style

I wanna win so bad, id go the extra mile

 

First I gotta say thanks, to the whole sierra crew

What u guys do is rad, I can’t believe its true

 

When the first contest was announced I was like sierra snowboards…who?

Then I made a username and saw that the winner was 222

 

Next was the egg toss and I thought I had a chance

When I found out I lost, I had no victory dance

 

I knew my facts about sierra, I wouldve swore this was the one

Guess I was wrong again because megab|tch had won

 

We got word about the game eskiv and everyone tried hard

Too bad I suck again, and flade went the extra yard

 

Nu-Nu and his board go together like bread and a toaster

Im just really stoked to have won that signed poster

 

So here I am now tryin to win the board 5 others got

I’m hoping this will be week, Im hopin for you its not

 

Im not tryin to sound mean don’t take that the wrong way

I’m just tryin to win this contest, wow thatd make my day!

 

So this goes out to Airik, Mike, Nicki, Ian, and oh so much more

That when you ship the board next week youll ship it to my door!

Ever since childhood I always wanted to shred
Sadly, St. Louis winters are as inactive as the dead.
My first snowboarding attempt ended in disaster
Titanium plates, eight screws, and a pre-surgery visit from my pastor
A large plaster cast canceled my virgin trip to surf real mountains
And I found myself wanting to drown…possibly in a public fountain.

You’re not a failure until you refuse to get back on your feet
I told myself I would not be beat
Winter is not far away
It grows closer and colder everyday
Today I still attack the white stuff
And continually ask God for several feet of fluff

Now attending school in the Windy City
Writing-out rent checks leaves me searching for pity
But sad-puppy-eyes
Earn zero sympathy from a condo full of guys
Empty bank accounts leaves me without new gear
But oh how I would cherish a fresh Retro Twin this year

I dream of cuddling a new Burton ride
I want to fall asleep with her by my side
Sierra Snowboard has the power
To make my dream a reality in a distant hour
Please vote for bsimon2
And my love for you will always be true

Wrap that Retro Twin up tight
And send her on a four-hour-flight
Patiently as possible, I’ll wait
For Mr. UPS to deliver my long lost date
I kneel at the foot of my bed and pray for your support
And beg that no one sells this poem short

So thanks for your time
And for tolerating my rhyme
Good luck to all
And please hang this poem on the victory wall

The end

My entry

Well i deseve this board because in labrador we dont got a good name barley anyone knows of this part of the provence unless i mention newfoundland , and seal clubbing . Well in labrador city we get alot of powder and just imagine a burton retro shreading the powder like a knife in butter  and hucking off of cliffs . In a place where the real 15 inches of snow falls, No not marble mountain but good ol' smokey mnt where we make do with what we get through donations  for the park. Also we dont got a good board shop so all of our snowboards are ordered from a catalog and none of us in labrador is privledged enough to ride such a nice board.also if i where to get this board i would spend the time from now to when our hill first opens i would be worshiping it ,sleeping with it, buying new bindings a boots for it and making sure it was never abused and allways used.

So Sierra I thought You should know...

I learned to snowboard last winter. The Monday after my first trip to Tahoe I went online and found your site. I brought a whole set up. You had it to me by the following Thursday so that I could shred again on Friday-Sunday.

I was officially addicted. I went off a couple jumps and fell a bizillion times. But it is oh so worth it. Can't wait to do it all again.

I am artist/snowboarder that has been riding for 14 years. I love snowboarding and art. I am pretty creative with my art and would love to be creative on that retro burton twin this season. Enjoy the website and music.
 
If interested, I can trade one of my martini paintings for that retro?

      I know I'm going home.Moving on up through the world exploring, fascinating myself. Treacherous climbs are guarenteed. Those are overcomeable. It's the noises in my head that got me worried. They keep telling me subliminally that I'm due for a fall. I know I'm in it to win it, no guarentees, no mistakes allowed. Not this time. Not like last time.

I have those bindings too.  I was going to do something similar to your post but you not only beat me to it, but you did it with so much flare and humor that I'll be bummed if you don't win.  Your entries make me giggle.

I believe I should WIN for a number of reasons, requisite, social gain and economic relief.

Firstly requisite, in the Australian summer of 2007 I will be travelling to Japan for a snowboard holiday. I have two choices, rent a junky snowboard of purchase one for myself. The rental option restricts the extent to which I can push the board, for fear of its faulty structure disintegrating beneath my feet. The option of purchasing a board has its drawbacks due to cost and availability. The 2006 season has ended in Australia and stocks are limited.

The social gain achieved by both the winning of a competition and the acquisition of a snowboard will provide me with an increased social status. An acquaintance of mine owns a home at a resort and considers themselves superior to me. This person is currently riding a Hammer and is pleading to be brought a new Burton. If I were to present a new Burton their perceived superiority would be considerably diminished.

The economic relief factor of receiving a free snowboard can be incorporated into the requisite argument, but I thought it necessary to outline this key aspect. I am a student completing the HSC year at high school. Next year I aim to move to Sydney and attend university. This will require accommodation, food, transportation and general life support. My bank account will not hold me up for long and any financial as*istance would be appreciated. To buy a snowboard would mean digging into that account and placing added pressure on my studies next year as I would be required to find a job. The “gift” of a free snowboard would indeed be most pleasing and beneficial.

For the artistic production I would like to direct you to the three videos in the linked page. They are representations of: a test of courage and fear conquest.

Hey, Renee.  You might, and I am not 100% sure, be able to make the .ppt and then save it to somewhere like filelodge.com and insert the link to it on your post.  That would be the easiest way.  The other way, if you have a website, is to save the ppt in an html format and post it on your website then hyperlink it in your post.  Either way its do-able.
