Within weeks, these dynamic women had created a company, named after Barbara’s mother, capable of marketing and manufacturing their cleverly designed products.

Chattanooga, TN, March 24th, 2008 ?- Rock/Creek celebrates continued success for the 2008 race season, as well as four new additions to the team. The season started off strong with team member Kris Whorton as she took the win at the Black Warrior 50K Trail Race. This race takes place in the Brushy Lake Recreational Area, a part of Alabama’s William B. Bankhead National Forest. Kris also had the #7 fastest 100 mile time on UltraRunning magazine’s recently released 2007 North American Ultra List. Her Umstead 100 miler time of 18:13 was the fastest trail 100 miler time for a female over 40, as well as the 4th fastest for any female in the world. In addition, Kris won the female masters’ division of the Mountain Mist 50k back in January, where she also set a new course record for her division. “I am hoping that some of that talent can start rubbing off on me,” her husband and running partner Randy quips.

The Cheaha 50k trail race, held on February 27,2008 continued the winning streak for Team Rock/Creek. Husband and wife team members Jamie Dial and Wendi Parker-Dial, of Nashville, took first place in the mens and women’s divisions, respectively. Jamie’s time broke the course record by 20 minutes. Another husband and wife team, Matt and Natalie Sims, both placed 5th in their respective categories. Kathy Johns finished 9th in her division.

On March 8th, Josh Wheeler won Chattanooga’s Scenic City Half Marathon. Josh is a returning Rock/Creek team member, cancer survivor, long time resident of Signal Mountain and former student of The McCallie School. Josh’s time of 1:14:56 put him on the podium with another inspiring victory.

“We’re excited to sponsor such a talented group of athletes,” explains Dawson Wheeler, co-owner and President of Rock/Creek: “Our Race Team represents us in everything from 5 mile to 100+ mile races across the world. The Whortons are running stage races in Europe while Josh is winning a half marathon right here in downtown Chattanooga….”

2008 Tele PowWow

Bretton Woods, NH — New England Telemark is excited to announce Tele Pow Wow 2008, a landmark event taking place at the Bretton Woods Ski Area on March 22, 2008. This is a youth telemark event which will take place alongside the popular NET Reggae Party.

This combined telemark festival will feature free clinics taught by some of New England’s finest telemark instructors. In addition to a special lesson just for kids, there will be clinics for all abilities including special ‘cross-over’ clinics for the alpine skier, clinics for women taught by women, and clinics for experts.

Tele Pow Wow 2008 takes the typical telemark festival to a whole ‘nother level with its own special vibe, access to an extensive kids demo fleet, a kids only ‘Tele Tribe’ posse in the afternoon, and culminating with a special kids raffle of kid-sized telemark skis, boots, bindings, and clothing.

The event will also kick off efforts to recruit interested New England youth for a ‘Tele Tribe – New England’ program for the 2008-09 season.

“Returning home after ten years out West, I’ve been extremely fortunate to hook up with New England Telemark this season as they emphasize youth telemark,” relates Mike Sharp, Tele Pow Wow organizer and founder of PC Telemark and the first Tele Tribe in Park City, Utah. “NET has the largest and most modern kids telemark demo fleet around and a proven track record for telemark events. This is the perfect storm for creation of a Tele Tribe in New England.”

The ‘grown up’ festival will also offer free demo gear from most telemark companies, a costume contest, lots of free beer, a gear raffle for skis and bindings, and a special ski raffle to benefit the cancer organization Jen’s Friends. All topped-off by the legendary Reggae concert.

Sign in for both events will be upstairs in the main lodge and all is free with the purchase of the special lift ticket, which is the exact same price as a regular weekend ticket. Skiers with season passes or special lift coupons pay $20 which goes towards the raffle.

New England Telemark is an organization of telemark instructors and enthusiasts dedicated to the growth of the sport of telemark skiing.
