Last year I got to witness a first for my lifetime: pond skimming. My son wanted to participate in the Pond Skimming Competition at Blue Mountain Ski Area, so not knowing what to expect, I decided to stay and watch rather than just drop him off at the mountain and head home. Needless to say, I can't wait to see it again this year.

There were a couple hundred people registered, from kids as young as seven to full-grown adults, and there were plenty of spectators too (even a dog). The competition was sponsored by a local business and even had a commentator.

When it was my son's turn, he chickened out. But I was kind of thankful for that, after watching so many people take the plunge or nearly injure themselves. Check out this video from last year to see for yourself. Craziness at its finest!


Do you think you will check out this year's event on March 22? It truly is one not to be missed.
