Drew Bledsoe and I at Race & Ace 2007

Race & Ace 2007

The first weekend in May means one thing-it's time for the annual Race & Ace Challenge near Bend.

On May 5th, I headed to Mt. Bachelor and Sunriver for a day of snowboarding and golf. Along with KGW Sports Anchor and golfing buddy Adam Bjarnson, we joined 100 or so other adventure seekers for a competition on the slopes and the links.

In the two person team competition, we placed seventh out of seven-last again. But, we also had a blast-again. Part of that has to do with tackling the tricky slalom course on snowboards. Though I ski even less than I board, I'm sure I could shave some seconds off my time by skiing the Mt. Bachelor course next year.

In addition, recently retired NFL quarterback Drew Bledsoe-a Race & Ace veteran-was also on hand again. Drew (pictured with me) helped his four person team stay in the title hunt with his skiing prowess and long drives.

Only 359 days 'til next year's event! Check out raceandace.com for more info.
