The snowkite speed contest is up and running (despite my missing a week...was having some winter fun away from computers) and the prizes are going out weekly.Chris Krug
took week 1 with the speed of 56.1mph just edging out Mike Elliot at 54.2mph. I think they were riding next to each other (must been a great sight). Chris wins a Peter Lynn
beanie which is appropriate since he was riding a Charger.Doug Remsen
was our lone entry for week 2 showing that participation has its advantages. He wins a sweet Slingshot
t-shirt for a cruisey 28.7mph at Sand Bar in Vermont.
We have a Dakine
wallet for the winner of week 3 (and remember, though they may be the fastest and will be recognized for that, either Chris nor Doug will be eligible for a prize until February (we want to spread the goodies around).
