    sounds like there might be a bit of CUSD developing

    I think after you've stuffed it a few times the concern disappears Gareth. You know - I made a complete plonker of myself in public and no one died [​IMG]

    Th CUSD is much higher in the likes of Nik. Yet to fluff an unload and survive to tell the story [​IMG]

    No pushing, just catching and hand holding [​IMG]

    Gareth can go see if there's any snow on Dream Run [​IMG] While we work on lift skills. [​IMG]

    I'll probably be on skis too, and so Dream Run will be way off (and probably not even open at that time of year)

    Let's get the definition out there shall we.
    All who post on SIC, and ski/board it in that window in June when the OAUs and I are in Thredbo. I think that's the 17th. 18th, 19th and 20th of June.

    I think my money is fairly safe [​IMG]

    But if it's not that means it will have been puking [​IMG]
    (Or Thredbo sneakily installed snowmaking)

    They have enough long hoses and ground guns to nuke dream run with manmade, but there's more important stuff to be doing.


    If there was a hydrant line up dream run and maybe 12 automated towers, it would be open 100 days a season.

    The A Team!

    Oh...this should be good.

    Either way I win - slidin' down Dream Run in June with a good laugh and drinks after, or the smug delight of being proven right.

    WIN WIN for me [​IMG]

    Nidecker, I think you might find that members of particular A team are a little bit older and less "action-man" these days.

    Perhaps they might still be good for a bit of moral support though [​IMG]
