Dero Golf December 8, 2009 by Jeremy Thorns (Snowboarder)

jeremy-profile-clear-70-newSaturday the 5th of December hosted the 6th annual Dero Golf tournament. The dress code this year was 80’s Rockstars. Rob Mitchell is to blame for this extremely competitive, exciting, fun and quite boozy event. Its held at Summer Hills golf course in Mount Maunganui…epic spot! It was my first trip to Dero Golf and Rob picked me up from the airport with a car full of booze and a big roaster for the pig and lamb…I could tell it was going to be good times.

On Saturday morning I managed to get a surf in with Rob and Tim then it was up to the course the get it all setup. Animals on the spit, kegs tapped, 80’s gears ready to go…

With 2 kegs finished, registration complete, weather clearing, it was time for the teams to spread out around the course. I think as soon as we got to the tee the clouds burnt off and it turned into a mean day of crazy golf. With the Ambrose style of play things went quite well. My team consisted of Karl Dunham, fellow MD Team member Shelly Gotlieb, Vic and Matt. Think we drew with the team we were playing with and we were a couple of shots off the pace at the end. Hopefully Shelly puts a few pics up because my battery went flat…
Cheers to Pete at Summer hills golf course and to Rob for putting the effort in to organise the event. Chur Chur… looking forward to next year!

Methven Big Air is on this weekend September 23, 2009 by Jeremy Thorns (Snowboarder)

jeremy-profile-clear-70-newTHIS SATURDAY. The Methven Big Air is on and should have a solid field of riders.   With the Surf Snow Cup on during the week the Big Air will be an epic way to finish it. I think the crew that are in the Surf Snow Cup get entry to the Big Air so expect some air reverses and plenty of laid back slash action. Check out www.thebluepub.co.nz for more details.  Chur

Surf Snow Cup 2009 September 23, 2009 by Jeremy Thorns (Snowboarder)

jeremy-profile-clear-70-newSup. So this week I was going to be attending the Surf Snow Cup that is being held at Mt Hutt and Chch…but I never heard back from the organisers…..hmmm. Anyways the plan was for the snowboarding to be held up at Mt Hutt and run a slopestyle comp. Then the boys would head out to the coast and hopefully score some waves…wherever they could. The overall winner will be the rider who scores best in both events. There are a few Ozzy shredders doing it so the level should be pretty high! Look forward to seeing the results! check out www.myspace.com/surfsnowcup for a lil more info.  Chur
