famous leader quotes:
it's cool, nothing more than 20'...
stay right on my ass....
...just one short booter......
do you guys want a refresher on self arrest before we hit this line?
mine...give me some room....
Yeah, that's not what you want to hear from the front, ha. nah, I'm just foolin' wi' ya', I know where I am
I was a substitute school bus driver just out of college. I had so many routes to learn, I sometimes forgot something. I had about eight kids, 5 and 6 year old's, in the bus and turned around and asked them if I should go right or left. they all started crying.
Great list. I make a point of telling people (somewhere in between Step 1 and Step 2) "this the best run on the mountain" and make sure I say it every run.
Without getting things too complicated, first rule is to K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid.)
Step 1. Give a short spiel about group dynamics.
Step 2. Count noses at the start of a run.
Step 3. Select terrain that the weakest link in the chain can safely and enjoyably negotiate.
Step 4. Count noses at the end of the run, then listen to feedback from the cats that you've been herding.
I don't get it....positive re-inforcement? or don't hold your breath, this is all there is?
More like a running joke. Kind of like pole whacking on a beginner run. Of course, you have to have a little more dramatic emphasis and enthusiasm when it really is the best run on the mountain.
After Gnar came out, a lot of people were whacking their pole at everything. really funny. One guy was up in a chute that was so sketch no one wanted any part of it. he sidestepped laboriously in, climbing over rocks. He had a lot of people's attention. Then he stopped and got in position to begin his run. But first, he did the obligatory pole whacking and everyone got it and cracked up. funny as hell.
