Yes, Mr. Lawson wrote a good one too. "Plan on being just as committed one year from now". My mantra!
Just noticed today, Notorious Spag won the caption contest as well. While not nearly as high-dollar as JL and LM's contributions, it still won me $25!!! (I had forgotten that I even submitted it.)
Anyway, I'm finding this issue of TPS to be quite informative. Maybe more-so than ever. (my opinion) Charlie Macarthur's telemark/alpine article is pretty studly. The synopsis of INTERSKI 2003 is fascinating. Lisamarie's "Cut to the Core" has got me thinking! Jon Lawsons "10 Core Commitments" makes you realize why we do this silly job. Ann Lindemann throws down a very informative piece about self-arrest after a "Full Throttle Fall." Articles by Doug Pierini, Jim Schanzenbaker (shanzy), Megan Harvey, Chris Fellows, Chris Kastner, Katie Fry, Charlie Mac, Jill Sickels Matlock, et. al. are all great. It's been awhile since I've taken this long to read TPS. Don't throw this one away!
Can I go skiing yet?
