Snowboarding at The Pioneer Statue
A snowboarding tournament was supposed to start at noon today in Civic Center...
...but they seemed to be having technical difficulties at about 12:30...
...possibly because the Seattle-based group putting on the exhibition wasn't expecting temperaturees in the high 70s.
A pair of emcees were keeping up an entertaining patter but lunch seemed more urgent than waiting around for the daredevils.
Update: An acquaintance, Beth K., happened by at about 1PM and said the snowboarders did finally appear and were gifted athletes who were a joy to watch.
