I worked a TON this weekend, but had a great time doing it. It was Spring Grüv at The Canyons. Spring Grüv is an annual spring celebration with crazy contests and concerts. One of the crazy contests is Pond Skimming. It’s put on by my department, so I helped out, and had a great time! Pond Skimming a goofy competition where people dress up in costumes, ski/snowboard down a big hill and attempt to get accross a 100 ft. pond. If you make it across you get a lift ticket to The Canyons for next season. There are also awards for overall, best costume, biggest splash etc.
My job during the event was to feed the announcer the information sheets on each competitor. He’d announce who was coming, what their costume was and other interesting facts. YOu can see me standing in the center of the photo wearing all black next to the guy with a brown jacket and cowboy hat.
This duo was the overall winner. These are 2 guys dressed as Tiger Woods and Elin. They were hilarious and pretty much made it across the pond. Tiger was driving a black Esclade SUV with custom plates that said SEX DRV and Elin was following hitting the car with a golf club on the way down. It was pretty funny, especially since they were two white dudes- the Tiger painted his face black and the Elin had fake boobs and hair with some pinkish boots covering “her” ski boots.
My costume was going to be my Snuggie with some bling- but it was too hot, I couldn’t do it. I just wore some funny 80’s sunglasses and bling. I ended up with a bad sunburn- because I forgot sunscreen and once the event got started there was no way I could find some, stop and apply, I was too busy! I might just look like a lobster today.
