Sink or Skim?

arcticmanA look back at Slush Cup 2010 with this year’s champion (and winner of a season pass) Cam Brewington aka “Arctic Man”:

When I woke up on Saturday morning, the first thing I did was look out my window to check the weather. It was perfect. Warm and bluebird sky. I knew it was going to be a great day. I have attended various other Slush-cups in Canada, but none were quite like this one. Due to a few complications, I was informed at the last second that I would be the one to represent the Arcticman suit. As I spent over 20 minutes trying to squeeze my body into this ridiculously tight suit, I could hear the judges choosing people to be in the event. I made it just in time and got selected.

A few hours passed of gorgeous sunshine, music, and talking to people who were either stoked on the Arcticman suit, or slightly offended by the tightness of it. Before I knew it I was at the top of the run, watching other people attempt to cross the pond. Each spectacular attempt was followed by the roar of the crowd. Soon it was my turn. I zipped up my suit (which was about to burst) and lowered my aerodynamic helmet. I couldn’t hear a thing and I could barely see where I was going. I hit the jump, flew onto the water, almost lost my balance and then got launched out of the pond and landed on my back somewhere in the finish corral. I made it! I got to my feet and the roar of the crowd was unbelievable.

A big thanks to Ryan Wooly for the suit and everyone who helped out. See you next year!
