On a slow day recovering from an evening of Mocktober Fest, participating in my first slush cup seemed as good a hangover cure as any. My strategy was to carry as much speed as possible, try to skim the length of the 70ft pool, and stay out of the slush. I came pretty close. I’d planned to attempt a back-flip for my second run, but was told that inverts are banned, and that we’d be limited to a single run. Maybe next year. Kudos to all the scantily clad participants who bailed into the slush.
