I didnt get to come out for the Utah Winter Games this year but i wanted to say congrats to a couple of people i know.
Congrats to Ryan for getting third and Chase for getting forth and congrats to George for getting a silver in the open division, and congrats to Abby for also getting a silver.
I have 13 days before i get on the ice for the first time this season , i will be in LP from Feb,10th through the 24th and a former skeleton school classmate of mine will also be there (Bradley Chalupski) so that will be cool.
I already have the track memorized in my head from watching helmet cam videos so that should help me some but that track looks kinda scary, lol.
Also im still looking for bobspikes or skeleton shoes if anyone has any for sale.

If memory serves me, watch turn 3 or 4 on the LP track. And if you get a chance, talk with Amanda Bird. She can give you some great tips, they really helped me out.

Hey TeeJ.
Yes Ryan is really helpful , me and him went to skeleton school together and he is a really good guy, he also gave me some tips at the summer push track last September.

Now im jealous that you are going to Calgary that is so awesome, im happy for you dude, have fun and let me know how it goes.
