Long-Time-Ago Hang.

This was over a month ago… I’m busy, alright. Words and pictures by Tron.

Done in a way that only the guys at Rome SDS can do, they showed love to those who showed love this season. Dealers and friends were invited to Sugar Bush Resort for a few days of riding and partying. The crew was out in full force with everyone out terrorizing the hill, cruising in large packs and spraying anyone who got in their way. The first day it started snowing and dropped 5 inches of VT pow on the mountain. The upper mountain was shut down, but that didn’t stop anyone. Sully lead the charge, showing us some of his favorite runs both on the trails and in the trees. The mini parked was charged hard including the sideways rail and the barrel jib that put you squarely into the woods. The day ended with burgers and dogs grilled in the condo parking lot.
The second day the snow was inconsistent to say the least. Ranging from blue ice to hot pow. Everyone was killing it despite the conditions. Lunch was brought to the parking lot and we enjoyed the best subs in the state of Vermont before heading out due to some rainy weather and sheer lack of sleep. Snurfer races had to be postponed until next year. Plenty of time to tighten up your game.
The nights were full of beer drinking and hell raising. Parties in all the condos and pizza at a bar that is being investigated by the FBI; truely authorized dealers. The locals were run off the pool tables both nights. Notably by JV, who sunk on the 8-ball on the break. The last night the camera finally came out and captured what turned into a very interesting game of “Drinking Jenga.” The game was found in a closet in one of the condos and included booze inspired directions written on each block.

Needless to say it was a great couple of days. Thanks to everyone for coming out and to Rome for making it happen. See you next year!

Ladies and gentlemen; let the games begin! A-Star stacks ’em up.

Game on! Joel and Dumont eyeing their moves, would it be “chug a beer,” “Call [MH],” or “Race another player to another condo and back, then chug a beer. Loser takes off their pants.”

Paddock “Chug a beer.”

Dumont is one photogenic dude!

George took his shot like a champ, despite some protest.

Have you ever seen a man look so happy to be hitting another man in the face with a pizza crust?

Taking my turn, I think on this one I drew either “Firewood!!! Go get some!!” or “Compliment circle.” I can’t rememeber.

Joel making “the noise,” someone pulled the “Call [MH]” piece.

Just George being George.

“Whose driving my truck!? I’m driving my truck, BITCH!!!”
