Regatta - "Wind-Heaven! 2011" Cancelled

Due to lack of funding and the removal of some corporate sponsors, we sadly announce the cancellation of this year's Wind-Scooter Regatta. We learned that a few of the registered athletes have tested positive for enhancement drugs  and have been disqualified. Also, Scooterdude is in hiatus as Piccolo Pup is requiring more attention at home. We apologize in this advance notice that this is a loss for the city. We look forward to the possibility of a 2012 Regatta.

"Wind-Heaven! - 2011"

Strong Winds for First Preliminary Trials - "Wind-Heaven! 20011"

The incredibly bitter cold added to the challenge of getting back onto the urban-surf.
"Thrilling!"

"Ecstatic!"

"Fantastic Ride!" were a few of the comments. It amazed everyone that despite the dirt white residue of months' snow with some gravel sand and salt there were excellent conditions for practice before next month's big event.

Surveying possible routes for the Regatta was Scooterdude and a few supporters. Depending on wind direction, the preferred routes include either Stuart Street (from Dartmouth St. to Berkeley St.) or Boylston Street (from Clarendon St. to Arlington St.). Cross-streets and direction would also be determined upon weather conditions.

Corporate sponsors to date:
      Poof-Puff Wind-breakers
      Oggle Goggles
      Jet-Stream Xtreme Sports (apparel, nutrition, attitude!)
      DF Magazine

Can Still Dream......

While SnowSeason continues....

During this season of excessive road-cover (whether snow, sand, or salt ) Scooterdude has taken a long break.
In the meantime, he's been working on a few other 'inventions' and creative projects in his writing, graphics, and music....
