|Bart giving the morning briefing.|
|Dave Hawley during the speed competition. We'll|
see more of Dave later.
|How do they get some of those awesome shots that|
you see in magazines? Here's Amanda Burgess of

|A little TOO low and you don't skip quite as well. Here|
Dave Hawley hits really hard.
|...and skips right out of the pond. He hit the water in excess|
|...this can't be good.|

the ISM series such a success. Can't wait til we do
it all over again!!
