Paul Overby, a Big Sky local snowboarder and snowboard instructor was nearly beaten to death in Bozeman on September 17th for trying to stop two idiots from stealing his friend’s moped. Paul’s medical bills are estimated to be in the $2,000,000 range and his friends and family are reaching out for assistance with these expenses. A fundraiser for Paul, the First Annual “Pillage in the Village”, will be held on November 14th. The “Pillage” will be a full on family friendly festival including product raffles, film festival, live music and even a rail jam (conditions permitting).
For more details, visit here and Paul’s website for updates on how his recovery is going as well as ways you can help.
Please contact Liz Wells for more information about the event or to find out how you can help.
If you’re anywhere near Bozeman get up there and have a great time while helping out a fellow snowboarder. If you’re not, do what you can do to help out.
Ok so I grabbed this off the Rome SDS site. This rippers been around the Midwest for years. He was a Fobia kid and always came into Maplewood shop when I was running it. I often saw him out at Afton Alps when I went there to ride. It truly hurts me that this happened to a good person. It's sad to think about where humanity is at this point in its undefined existence. I hope anyone with the means drops a note or sends some loot to help Paul out. If anything send some energy and positivity out his way.
Lets learn to be better!

So the onslaught of preseason jams is here in full force, so grab that fresh kit and make yourself visible.
Outpost's set up was fun last year and I'm sure this year will be better. So load up the homies in the SUV, VW, or what ever your driving and head down to Outpost's Jibapalooza Event.

More snowboarding videos on SnowboarderMag.com
Kinda funny that this office is kinda small but way bigger than in the beginning. If you notice where the stairs are and everything to the dog Jackson was the whole office when I started working with Rome SDS. So the Offices were in the upstairs space that now is a photo area and the conference room was Paul's office which was the whole Product Manager zone. The office you really don't get to see was Josh's Office in the far corner. The whole of the room was Art Dept, Sales Dept, and anyone else who was helping. It cool to think that Rome's kept the same space in a old Train Depot next to the tracks in Waterbury VT for it's whole existence. Yeah it's growing over the years, but it's rooted in it's past at the same time. I really think that says something about the people behind the Rome SDS. I find it funny that on Snowboarder-Mag.com so guys was saying if you were a good snowboard brand and "core" you'd be in the mountains or something. He's was from Lake Forrest CA?! Not really a place for ripping riding, but a major boot company is based there. They must not be a "core" boot brand?! I don't know it's just funny how people who don't know anything continue to make stupid statements via the Internet. People I i can't say one thing on the Internet via this blog is be skeptical of what you read and who it's coming from. Lots of crap to go with a positives of Interweb world.
OK I have to update two premiers it's been tuff because I'm out on the road trying to make it happen. Those will be coming soon. Thanks for Reading this Blog. The Magazine has been held up some I'm sorry it's ready to roll but the cost of printing was higher than estimated forcing us to rework our initial plan for printing. Once I'm able to post up I'll work to get this thing finished with the swiftness.
Ole' to the ones that care!

From the Rome SDS
"Should we support the idea that a brand’s roots, involvement in, and connection to snowboarding don’t matter?
Should we say, “hey, athletics-r-us brand, you haven’t given a shit about snowboarding for 30 years and your spandex-clad board of directors still don’t give a shit about snowboarding now, but that’s cool, come on in and make some money off us”?
Should we really accept them as a snowboard or skate company just because they can spend a ton of cash on some of the best, most iconic riders? Does the ability to cut a big check magically turn a pair of figure skates into a pair of snowboard boots?
Should snowboarders lie down and accept it when the mainstream tries to reduce snowboarding to just some other generic form of “athleticism”?
If you think the same logo that’s on that nut-hugger swim suit, golf ball, tennis skirt, jump rope, baseball bat and rollerblade might as well be on your next pair of snowboard boots, what will snowboarding look like in five or ten years? Will it be influenced in a way that’s true to our history?
Does any of this matter?
Does snowboarding even matter?
That’s up to you.
The Libertine Drunk, a collab between the Rome SDS and Consolidated Skateboards, is a limited edition get-together of two brands who think sporting goods companies aren’t snowboard or skate companies."
Thought I'd share the new Boots....Holla at the Local Dealer for these bad boys...

Well Marie's a great friend and she's been holding it down for a few years now. Holding it down is starting to payoff for young Marie as she's been elavated to Factory Am for Rome SDS, Holden, and Ashbury. I was pumped on her little interview and her shot in the new Snowboarder Ms. Superpark Issue on News stands now.
We at Corduroy Lifestyles want to take a moment to say Ole' to a real snowboarder.
