Non-pottery weekend watching young people fly
While the national team members were ski-jumping in Vancouver at the Olympics, some pretty damn good jumpers who didn't quite make the teams were flying off the 90-meter hill in Brattleboro, Vermont, this past weekend. Jumpers from across the United States and from Slovenia and Austria competed at Harris Hill, just a few blocks from Brattleboro's lively downtown.
We took a weekend away from Cape Cod to see these young folks fly through the air Saturday and Sunday. Pretty cool. Above at top, Nick Fairall of Andover, NH, and below him (but with everyone on the side of the hill looking up at him) Stefan Klade of Austria.
Now, back to making pots.
