This year, we sent two teams from the shop to the US Toboggan National Championships at the Camden Snow Bowl. We had our Fisherman's Academy team, a group of high school students who come to us from Oceanside East, and the Suzukinis, an apprentice team generously sponsored by Suzuki Sushi Bar.
The day before the competition, both teams went for some practice runs. The video below shows the Fisherman's Academy team working on positioning themselves on the toboggan. The practice seems to have paid off in the end. This year, they made it down the run faster than last year, especially during the practice runs on Friday morning. Even though none of our teams took home a trophy, we all had fun, and even caught some fish out on the ice!
Some of the Suzukinis were interviewed about their experience on the Chris Wolf show. You can see the interview here.
