Tussey Mountain

First off, I would to thank everyone who came on the hayride, hope you all enjoyed it. We were the biggest crowd they've ever had there and hopefully we can make it even better next year.

Now for the big news, Tussey Mountain is pushing really hard to take their park to the next level. In doing so they went out and purchased a handful of rails from Ski Roundtop. Also, WE (the team) will be personally helping Curtis Harrison , their groomer, with builds and other aspects of the park. Here is a quick pic of the rails from Roundtop.

 

You can check out the Tussey Mountain Terrain Park group on facebook for future updates. The season is right around the corner!

Penn State Snowboard Club - THON

This is the third year that PSSC has been involved in THON, and the first year we’ve ever had a THON Family! Trevor Hart (15 years old) and his family found out back in August that Trevor had developed Leukemia. Having a THON child really motivated the PSSCers to raise more money than we ever have: $17,317.61 for a school-wide total of over $9.5 million.

We had a great run this year and had a really great time getting to know each other during both canning and THON weekends. All of our dedicated members were truly amazing, and a special mention should be made for our dancers Molly Reese and Julie Baker. We all look forward to next year!

If interested in helping participate with THON next year, please contact Sarah Hefner at shefner22@gmail.com.

Brand New Site!!

As you've obviously noticed by now, the PSSC site got a bit of a facelift last weekend. I've been working for a couple months on the new design and features. For the most part, everything will be similar to what you are used to. I've added a few new features to the homepage and extended the left sidebar to every page of the site. You'll notice a revamped video section and a brand new Inbox for managing your site messages. 

As part of finishing up the new site, I wrote a blog post over on my personal blog outlining some of the improvements that were made to the site. If you're interested, head over to http://plzkthxbai.com/ to read about the new site!

NEW Skateboard Company!

hey everyone,

Nasty Nate and I have decided to start our own skateboard company. We have created a survey to get an idea what everyone looks for when buying a skateboard. It's only 9 questions and if you could take five minutes to fill it out it would really help a lot! Here is the link to the survey.

NICE Skateboards - Skateboard Survey

eventually we will be selling PSSC skateboards as a fundraiser for the club.

Thanks to Zach for filming all day and Art for putting the edit together.  We had a great year this season and we'll be putting out more edits in the upcoming month.  See you all next winter.

Guest Boulder edit by Steve

Click "READ MORE"  to see the edit! 

So normally Art does our edits for us. But while sitting around with the girls, Steve decided to make an edit from a day at Big Boulder.  Besides stealing a previously used song (sorry Deen and Colin) it's pretty good.  It starts Steve "Stacy" Weatherly, Alex Wyzaldjkkiaoiski and Aaron Zook.  Check it out brah.

Penn State Snowboard Club to be dissolved Summer 2009

My Dearest Club Members,

As you all may know, the recent economy has caused many struggles for many people.  Workers are getting laid off, and its harder for college grads to get a job than ever.  For many of us who are currently enrolled at a University, we may sometimes think that we are immune to the economy.  Well it turns out that is not completely true.  The economy has shown its wrath on us all.

So to cut to the point - and I deeply regret saying this - but it looks like there will no longer be a snowboard club at Penn State next year.  To be honest, we have seen this coming for awhile and we have tried to do everything in our power to fix the solution.  We even set up a hearing at club sports and asked for a buyout.  Erin rejected us just like Andre Iguodala on Jimmy Fallon. Well, the pork barrell spending is over.  The fact is there simply isn't any more money to support Penn State's biggest club sport. 

If there is a silver lining in all of this terrible news, it's that we managed to ensure that all of this year's officers will get their bonuses.

Sincerely,

 

 

Alex Wyczalkowski

Team Tryouts

Hey dudes. I emailed some busters about this but if you never sent me your email, team tryouts will be this Sunday the 28th at Big Boulder.  We will meet at noon at the bottom of Freedom Park (all the way to the right looking up at the mountain).  Look for all the dudes just standing around in tight pants.  We will lap the park and maybe hike a rail for an hour or so.  Pretty straightforward, but email me if you have any questions (jef5061@psu.edu).  Weather shouldn't be an issue, but if it looks like we won't be going I will post something Saturday night.  See you all Sunday.  Get loose!

Tremblant Departure Change

The departure time for Tremblant has changed:

2:00AM on Sunday January 4th.

This means you want to be in State College the night of Saturday January 3rd.  This will make it easier for anyone who was trying to find a place to crash Saturday night.  Plus its easier for you college kids to stay up till 2am rather than wake up before 5am.

Team Tryouts

Alright dudes, so I blew it this weekend and dropped the video camera case on my toe and couldn't snowboard at all in Killington.  I know this screwed up tryouts a little bit.  I heard some of you busters rode with the team for a while in the park though.  If you were one of those kids, or if you couldn't find anybody and just said fuck it, or whatever (basically, if you're still interested in the team), email me with your name and whatnot, and we are going to work out a day to all ride together at Big Boulder over Christmas break so we can get this stuff all settled.  The team will be decided before the Tremblant trip for sure though, we're not doing tryouts there.  Let me know dudes.

Darkside Snowboard Deal Days, Dudes

The Penn State Snowboard Club is hooking up you guys again.  Looks like that $40 you paid at the beginning of the semester is a steal. This is a legit store that carries a lot of the same brands that sponsor us like Forum, Foursquare, Special Blend, Electric and more. 

So this deal is open to all club members.  The deal days are December 2-6th (Thurs-Sun), and you will get 20% off all items.  Read closely, as this is going to work differently for everyone depending on whether or not your are coming to Killington.

Club Members coming to Killington:
We will be stopping at Darkside Snowboard Shop during our stay at Killington.  Everyone with a Penn State ID will receive 20% off anything in in the store.  We may or may not do a shuttle with our charter bus Saturday evening, depending on our bus situation.  Either way, there are village shuttles that go from our condos into town so you can stop by yourself. 

Everyone Else:
We will give you a promotional code that you can use on their website, www.darksidesnowboards.com. Once you check out the website and get the code, you can purchase anything online for 20% off on December 2-6th.`

Pitt Rail Jam

Last Friday night the team took a trip to the Univ. of Pitt campus to compete in their annual preseason rail jam.  There were dudes everywhere.  The set up was a double line, with a corrugated pipe pole-jam and an up-down box.  Lots of weird tricks and weird falls went down.  Club member Magy placed 3rd for the chicas, and none of the dudes placed because we decided to leave before finals. Oops.  Check out the photo gallery for some sick photos by Michelle Wagner.  Dudes dudes dudes!

NOMIS and Technine Proforms Update

List what you want on the Forum here. Include the price. Make sure it is on the order form at the bottom.

** We are re-opening the Nomis and Technine proforms to the entire club. Our minimum order has changed to $1000, so if you are still interested in getting something, get it back to us asap.

We now have proforms available from NOMIS and Technine. Theres some decent deals on here. I saw a board for $160. Between the 2 companies you can get your board, bindings, outerwear, and more accessories than you can shake a stick at. At the bottom you will see links to the different Technine and NOMIS catalogs, as well as the order form with prices.

Heres how its gonna work. Its a bulk deal so were gonna do 1 big order as a club. The due date for orders is Thursday November 20. Remember to add 6% sales tax to the order, and a $5 warehouse fee (if the club's total order is over $2500, the fee will be waved, and you will get your $5 back). You can pay cash or check to "Penn State Snowboard Club".

Here are the catalogs:
