TC is Running in the Mothers Day Classic to Raise money for Cancer Research, Please Support her and click on this link , BeCause CANCER SUCKS
May 2010 will be my first time participating in the Mother's Day Classic. Like many of you, my friends and family have been greatly affected by breast cancer, which is why I've chosen to help raise money for this cause.
In dedication to my Great Aunt Jean, Nan, and our dear friend Krista . . . We love you heaps.

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.

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

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.
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

Good friend Brenner came up as did Josh, we couldn't talk him into driving the new car up though
One of our riding buddies Evan getting ready to shred, last time I rode with him he was small now he is tall and has a mustache :) but still rips
Utah is great, Brighton is without doubt one of the best resort I have ever ridden it never lets you down thats for sure. Ive got some video footage coming as well as more shots from yesterdays hike and shred.

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

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