Ice Rammers take Hot Air smoosh board championship
Five teams competed this year at the annual Smoosh Board Competition during the Hudson Hot Air Affair.
It is one of the original activities in the 25-year-old community celebration. A lot has changed since the early years when competitors nailed old tennis shoes to 2x4 boards and off they went. Now the boards are wider and many times custom made.
The fun is the same and it still requires cooperation and coordination to get under way and stay upright.
John Knutson, also a founding member of the Hot Air Affair Committee, served once again as the lively and humorous emcee for the event. This year he was the Incredible Hulk.
