Southern Vermont felt the full power of pre-teen skate mayhem on Monday, at the Manchester Parks&Rec Full Moon Skate contest. Oscar didn't take first, but his best friend Jay did, and everyone was stoked. The kids were all awesome, and seemed to have a great time.
Here's a nice early grab from Oscar, several hours before the moon showed her full face.

Steel your face

Whooo! Got the basic skeleton for the press assembled yesterday. 12" by 9' slabs of steel, lovingly lifted into place by Sam, Dylan, Matt and me. These things run about 300lbs each, so getting the top ones chest high was a little nerve wracking. Turns out having no plan save for not dropping it on our toes was enough. Thanks to the fellas for helping out.
Now to finish off a couple of molds and start building some jams!

All work and no play makes jack a dull boy all and work no play makes jack a dull boy all work and no play makes jack a dull boy

Hey, we're back to building our own website. It's not going to be flashy or particularly interactive, but it'll get the job done. We're building it on shopify, and the pages there are live immediately after you build them. It's all pretty rough still, and most of the words haven't been written, but it's up and in effect while we toil away on it. So if you're interested, scope the site and give us your feedback. Click over there---> where it says "buy a PowderJet".
