Chapter 2- Event Update

A quick shout-out and “Thank You” to one of our event sponsors, Citri-dull. Also known for their “Burn-Thru” technology, don’t’ fight rust, let it Blossom! Tucker uses them, maybe you should think about it-

In my lead up, I forgot to mention scandal. That word has to rear its ugly head at everything these days. Seems nothing’s safe, nothing’s discreet, like a Kardashian on a king sized. Most scandals involve some sort of cheating, and most good ones involve an attorney.

Several heat races followed, in a double elimination format

The "Racing" was just a portion of the competition. Other events, showcasing other "Snowcat" attributes, would also be on the schedule (Breath easy Tucker Fans)

As expected, Mob influence usually played a role in the "random" line-up of races. The P.R.O.U. always felt that the deck was stacked against them, and who couldn't feel for them. Looks a bit citruspicious!




The Snotrac Mafia’s attorney, retired Vegas mayor, Oscar Goodman, found a little known clause in the Obama era “Make America Fair for Individuals Act”, which is a well-intended, but a poorly worded extension of the 1990 ADA Act (again not A.D., A.D.D., or A.D.H.D.) that aims at making “competition” equal between all participants. Anyway, that weasel, Goodman, whom happens to be a big golfer, figured out that if he could use “past success” against the other contestants (like he did, to take advantage amongst his fellow high wagering golf buddies, a.k.a. “handicap”), he could “equal” the playing field between his clients and the other manufacturers. Brilliant!

Snotrac mob boss "Jimmy Vermont" (in dark glasses) spotted "in line" at the
new "mobile" Cathouse of ill repute. Squeaking in a quick "peek" before the race




So, back to that “poorly worded” part of that “Make America Fair for Individuals Act”, the vague description defines all “Snow Competition” as any event that is “Held in or on snow, or Participates in or on snow”. The small print goes on to further detail, with sections about “Experience”, and “Averages”, and “Achille-ing”. Wait, Achille-ing? You may ask what the hell that is. It is the “politically correct” term used to replace the term “handicap”, which the writers thought was inappropriate when used as part of the “Make America Fair for Individuals Act”. Worse yet, the official acronym for the “Act” is “M.A.F.I.A.”! Really? The “M.A.F.I.A.” is using the term Achille-ing’ to equal the playing field? After some checking, turns out Goodman was part of the lobby that “applied all the pressure” to create the “Act” in the first place. Seems like “Act” has become a repetitive term here, and again, all “Snowtrac” related. Serious folks, can’t make this stuff up.


So where does this play in? Ask Tucker 500 Club member Sno-surfer, he knows full well. Seems his past has come back to haunt him. Maybe you’ve seen hints of his prior success on the forum, moonlighting as a competitive windsurfer, and being an all-around good dude? Well, he also is good snowboarder…too good! Won lots of events, and yes “on snow”. Turns out Old Oscar Goodman was watching also, and as a result, made the event organizers “an offer they couldn’t refuse”. Yes, due to the vague, all inclusive, poorly written rules of the M.A.F.I.A. extension of the A.D.A., Sno-Surfer would be Achille-ed in order to level the playing field between contestants. The “wins” while snowboarding (remember the “on snow” part of “Snow Competition”) now used to determine a competitive average, and the resultant average used to determine the amount of “Achille-ing”. Sound Democratic? In this case “Damned”. Resultant penalty- a backwards start at the line for the B-Main “racing” event. Not even fair. He’d need to turn around a Tucker 542 as his first maneuver. Spinning the Nimitz in Honolulu Harbor, without tugs, would be a faster. Really Snotrac? To stoop this low? A Tucker 542 is a climbing machine, not a racer, surely you could have creamed him in that event without MAFIA involvement. I don’t know about you, but in Washington State, this is the equivalent of taking your kids pea shooter .22LR, and a can of Lamp Black Krylon, and defining it as an “Automatic Assault Weapon”. Hopefully Tucker fans will see redemption in the “non-speed” related events, for this one is toast.

The B-Main Final- and the sad reality of the M.A.F.I.A. sanction against Tucker 500 frontman, Sno-Surfer (far Left), showing the backwards starting position. We limited this report to a "photo", because the video was just too gut wrenching. Red Simpson singing "Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around" came to mind. Though it was tough to watch, Tucker was getting prescribed some of their own medicine from the Snotrac show of force! The race was paused momentarily while Mob boss Jimmy Vermont was "located"

Citri-dull also makes the food coloring used in the "Orange Kool-Aid" so us real believers can and do slowly provide the "Kool-Aid" to the non-beleivers without any of their knowledge. So just drink up and smile everything will be just fine, honest!!

ebay has a very nice selection of knee braces cheap, perhaps you should look for your size.

Tried to get up to Brundage Mt to test out our new Bombardier but with CV19 and the recent passing of its sole owner it is locked down tight - the future is uncertain. This is a shot today using a remote cam. Snowing as we speak.
