UPDATED!! The party will be held in the BLACK BEAR LODGE'S GREEN MOUNTAIN BALLROOM!
Calling all Allegro, Freeskiing and Freestyle People!
What a great season we have had, and this coming weekend the sun is going to be shining bright with fresh snow! We will have our annual Freedogger Open on Saturday! This club event is an anything goes, (within ability) no rules hot doggin' fun run down the World Cup moguls and new this year we are adding a slopestyle/halfpipe component on Suntanner to take advantage of the awesome freestyle terrain on that trail. Athletes are encouraged to show off the skills they learned this year and parents have been known to bring a cooler to sit on and watch. Costumes are encouraged and will factor into the fun. See you at line up at 8:30am Saturday. We will have costume judging, team photo and then head to World Cup. We will regroup after lunch at the flag, for a safety lap through the park to look before we leap and then have an open "jam" format. The day will conclude with an End of Season Bash as we take over the Black Bear Lodge's Green Mountain Room starting at 5:00pm.
To recap the important parts:
8:30am Line up and costume judging.
9:30ish Freedogger on World Cup
11:30 Break for lunch
12:30 Suntanner safety lap and open jam session.

Info on Summer Camps
All Out Freestyle is the preferred summer camp partner of SWSC Freestyle. We have received confirmation from many of you that you will be attending All Out Freesrtyle's Mt Hood training camp, June 23rd- July 6th. Please visit AllOutFreestyle.com
for more information and to register. Bruce Bolesky and I will be coaching and we will be bringing in some high profile guest coaches as well. Freeskiers are very welcome!
Our thoughts about Mt Hood is that it would be extremely beneficial for us as a team to continue working together on specific skills that we have improved all winter and try to keep establishing upgrades. The long and short of it is, it would be great to have our squad at Mt Hood this summer to really work on skills and bond as a team. Hood is an awesome time and we are going to have a great staff to work with everyone.
