Last year I teamed up with Rome Snowboards and Bear Mountain to compete in Transworld SNOWboarding's Team Shoot Out and took top honours. This year we defended our title against 3 new teams. The photos and video's have been submitted and we wait the announcement of the 2010 TWS Team Shoot Out winner.

Shoot Out Contest Breakdown
The contest goes down in a two-week window: seven days of build time and seven days of ride time.
Each team is provided with a maximum of 210 groomer labor hours and 240 hand crew labor hours by the host resort.
Each team consists of five riders (including one girl). If the team doesn’t include a female, they can only have four riders.
Rider substitutions can only be made if a team member is injured.
One photographer is assigned to shoot each team for the event.
Each team can use a maximum of two filmers to shoot video.
Each team must create a four-minute final video and submit a gallery of six photos for judging.
Judging is broken into the event’s three main components: video, photos, and overall creativity.
The winning team is awarded the September cover.
The Team Shoot Out winner is determined by adding the judging scores of all the contest criteria for the highest possible points total.
