Snowbox Derby

File this one under Memories.

The Lee Canyon ski resort, near Las Vegas, had (has?) an event called the Snowbox Derby. Homemade sleds race down the mountain and compete for prizes in several categories.

We built our entry "Desert Snowstorm" in 1995, after Operation Desert Storm. It was a Hummer, built out of Cardboard, Tape and Glue, as specified by the rules.

We won an award for The Fastest Snowbox and we took the Second Place Award for the Most Creative Design.

They had some excellent, creative and goofy entries... not to mention dangerous.

Here's a photo of our friends, Lori and Jim, with Mrs. Geezer and Me proudly displaying one of our plaques.

I would sure like to see something like that here in Idaho.

Thanks to Sobek for inspiring me to write this by asking me what there was to do in Vegas.

Full disclosure;
I've been offered a free firearms training course at Front Sight in exchange for posting these links.
Since I've already taken one of their excellent courses, I jumped at the chance to get a free one.
