About the Mother's Day Classic

The Mother's Day Classic is one of Australia's largest charity events. The annual fun run and walk raises money for breast cancer research.

Individual fundraising is an excellent way to raise extra money for breast cancer research. Whether you are raising funds for your own walk or as part of a team, you are doing it to make a difference. And if you raise the highest funds in your state you can win a great prize - $1,000 in Qantas domestic flights!

In 2009, a record 80,000 people participated in a walk or run in different cities and regional centres across the country and raised $1.3 million for research into the prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer. Help set a new record in 2010 by supporting the Mother's Day Classic fundraisers.

In 2010, the Mother's Day Classic will be held in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Geelong, Gold Coast, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney CBD/ Parramatta. There are also many regional events across the country, plus local communities are encouraged to get involved by staging their own Mother's Day Classic event.

Birghton Park Pass Adventure

So A week or so ago as you can see in my previous posts I was lucky enough to get back to Brighton Resort in Salt Lake. My first day was spent shredding POW and on my second I had a chance to go check out Brighton's Jumps. I was super excited to check these out as it was a spring day and when I was there over xmas there was no jumps. You see Brighton has had some problems in the park as of late and hence they started what they call PEEPS.
See Below


Peeps is a program where you have to do a course online, pay $5 and get a park pass to ride the jumps in the park. SO off I went payed my cash did the course online and pretty much wasted over half an hour of my time.
So I get my pass and jump on chair to go ride park, alls good.
I finally get to park its getting late in day and I see it is all roped off, so I look for an entry gate and see its closed for the day, wow they could have told he you would think hey ?
Especially since the girl printing the passes know me quite well and knew I was only there for the day.
SO I jump the rope (as you would do also) and cruise down to the jumps only to be confronted by a bunch of gangster looking dudes. I then get a better look and realise the park is closed to film a bunch of skiers. Just my luck hey.
Anyway I did get this cool pass for the memory.


Anyway want to do the park pass quiz check out this link

My Second USA update

So finally I'm home back in OZ and have time to update the good ol blog.
Yep Ive been slack but here's a little photo update that I hope you all enjoy.
Remember to hit the button at bottom to leave feedback :) yep just like face book



These two are part of the "wooden robot" crew in utah that look after Burton, Forum, Gravis etc. Both 100 per cent awesome people that are always stoked and up for what ever.


video
Josh and I did some hiking while at Brighton, it was too good to film so I filmed Josh smashing a tree up top before we dropped in :) We hiked it a couple of times until the altitude really knocked this unfit guy round



At Brighton they have little museum of old snowboards along the wall. The Barfoot is a board that I actually rode on one of the second or third times I went snowboarding. We also used that Barfoot for sand boarding for years after that, yep sand boarding :)



While I was in Utah , Josh, Brenda and Max took me to in and out burger, yum yum yum !!!



Utah view at night

After Utah I travelled to Vermont...for a million meetings, here is a couple of shots of friends that made the trip fun and kept the meetings entertaining.


Phillipe from Europe admiring the old rack chandelier in the barn at Jake Burton's house.



Darren and Katie outside the barn, well it is a little more than a barn but its super cool that's for sure



Phillipe had a bunch of tricks on the tramp



Two of my fave people at Burton, Todd King and Craig Smith having a good time



On the way back from Jake's house I drove our Japanese friends back to town, Darren really likes Japanese lifestyle so much so he followed our friends below and slept the whole way home



Kaz can sleep anywhere and I mean anywhere



TJ knows when your taking his photo even when he is asleep



In the qantas international terminal there is a cool place called tony someones bonfire grill check the mean we got there :)



Second time Ive had these Tacos, they really are almost perfect



Jake is everywhere even at JFK

So glad to be home, 30 something hours to get home was no fun that's for sure

Last Weekend's Sydney Trip for Good Friend Paul and Kate's B-day Celebrations

Last weekend we traveled up to Sydney, which was perfect. TC got to tan on the beach and I got to work out of the Sydney office.
On Saturday though, the real reason we made the trip up was on... Paul and Kate's B-day celebrations. Paul turned 30 and it was an awesome time!
Even if it took us way too long to get there as I sent us to the wrong venue. This is what TC would call a "Roberts Shortcut."
Anyways, here is a little photo recap on the night


TC ready to party at our hotel



Ralph, Kat and Tara on the way to pre-party dinner



Thanks to Coco we stoked Colby out with a Raymond Pettibon signed poster



B-day girl Kate, Lauren and Coco



For the b-day card we got Colby an old Uninc Snowboard for everyone to sign. Here's morri getting to work



Paul's Sister Claire and TC



Lauren and Coco again were really stoked to be there and were running amuck, although this shot looks like they were pretty chilled



Old snowboard shred dawgs where out in force - here's Freddie and Chriso having a ball



Ralphy knows how to party and here he is holding the card for everyone to see



Coco doesn't mind getting background props in any photos, but the star in this photo is Katrina. After partying a little too much, she showed us how tall Kat really is . . .



Sydney was awesome and thanks to Paul and Kate for having us up there.

Easter Wedding blog to come in the next day or so
