Buff Pleasuredome scores 5 straight goals in Spingle Seed World Championship Win!

Posted in Uncategorized on September 23, 2009 by durangodevo

In one of the most dramatic and passionate games in Women’s Polo History, Buff Pleasuredome members Anne Cheeney, Jess Reed, Sabina Kraushaar and Helen Lee defeated the Slammin’ Sistas after coming back from an 0-2 deficit early in the game.

The Slammin’ Sistas players, Shannon Gibson, Jenn Gersback, Terina Tafoya and Rebecca Tomawiski, could not contain Buff Pleasuredome’s dynamic offensive strikes. Pleasuredome kept heavy pressure on the net and kept the Sistas on defense for most of the second half of the game. Sistas’ team member Rebecca Tomawiski played courageous Polo throughout the match and asserted herself as one of the top Polo players in the western conference.

Buff Pleasuredome is now preparing to defend their international SSWC09 Polo Crown next year in New Zealand.

Trailwork on Thursday

Posted in Uncategorized on September 22, 2009 by durangodevo

There will be a trailwork day this thursday with the D9 crew and  Trails 2000 from 4-7pm. To jump in, meet at the Skyline Trail with your clothes on. Get there from the end of Jenkins Ranch Road. In an amazing feet of trail sustainability, the track is in great condition with most of the damage being trail widening on the Skyline climb/hike. Take note that 2000 riders over the SSWC09 track left little long term damage. For those attending the thursday group ride, please meet at the trailwork party at 630. We’d like to thank Trails 2000 for the help with the easement that allowed us to race along Raider Ridge and the fresh rideable track that took off 15 minutes of hiking. That course was bad.

SSWC09 Crime Report: Please Return the Wheelset.

Posted in Media Action on September 21, 2009 by durangodevo
Someone doesn't know it, but they miss these wheels BAD.

Someone doesn't know it, but they miss these wheels BAD.

During our awards ceremony on Saturday, a man wearing an orange jacket walked up behind the stage, grabbed these $800 wheels with white Stan’s rims and King ISO disc hubs and disappeared into the fray.

This wheelset was donated by Bike29, a company that thrilled us with their generosity toward the SSWC09.

We were about to give these out as a prize when they disappeared. When the winner got on stage, we probably gave them some crappy t-shirt or a sticker instead of the 29er SS wheels of their dreams.

Here at SSWC09, we believe in redemption. If you have these wheels and feel bad about stealing them, or perhaps you don’t want to face the music when we see you riding them on our trails, bring them back to the Durango Cyclery in the middle of the night. Put them under the bench or something.

We are offering a no-questions-asked policy on the return of these wheels.

Do the right thing.

We at Passion Productions think this weekend was a stellar success. During all of the events, some very fine photographers and artists contributed their time and skills to document the event and make SSWC09 the ultimate eyegasm.

We have been talking with some of the photographers, artists, writers and designers about publishing a book. If you would be interested in purchasing one, please let us know in this poll. This information will be very useful when it comes time to print.

Thanks- Passion Productions and SSWC09.
