This hip is going to birth everything from poop to

By Rob Meronek, Posted on Tuesday, October 30, 2012

This hip is going to birth everything from flying poop such as double nut grabs and whatnot to super butteryness. Either way, good times. But yeah, kids are going to fly some straight doo doo off this thing I bet. Watch the trick selection, kids.

Porpe has not been lucky enough to get the blue collar manual labor exclusion that I somehow managed to secure from day one. He's got the sawdust fighter gloves while swishing the new SPoT sauce.

Course Construction - Forklift

By Rob Meronek, Posted on Tuesday, October 30, 2012

The only way I'd get in that thing is if there was a keyboard instead of a steering wheel and stick. Apparently, you need it to move heavy things or something.

Brian Schaefer - course construction

By Rob Meronek, Posted on Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Brian doesn't get out of the trenches for long. Wether it's bussing your table at The Bricks, or moving your ramp lumber while huffing sawdust on a forklift at the Park, he's hands on. His hands show it. Nelly puts these Band-Aids on his face, Schaefer puts them on his blue collar hand blisters. After a long day of coding, I should put these Band-Aids on my fingers tips and look tough.

Course Demolition 2012

By Porpe, Posted on Thursday, October 25, 2012

After three long days this is what the course demolition looks like. The Team Pain crew is here, and they have already started building some new obstacles. I spy a quarterpipe hip and a pyramid being built. Can't wait to see what they come up with this year. We will keep you updated in the next few days.
