dummy plug March 14, 1999 The latest issue of Snowboard Canada features a short article on the Showcase Snowboards party held back in December (where Ross announced the release of his new snowboards and the CD). There are some pictures of Ross at the party as well as an old picture of Ross carving. Page 31 of the magazine also mentions a Canadian Riders Award, held at this year's Westbeach Classic (Apr. 14-18). Hopefully Ross attends Westbeach, as well as the awards ceremony. Thanks to FO for the tip! dummy plug
dummy plug March 14, 1999 Ross shared B.C. senior athlete of the year honours with ironman Peter Reid at the 33rd B.C. annual awards gala for athletes. Congratulations Ross—may you be bestowed the same honours at the 26th Annual Canadian Sports Awards! dummy plug
dummy plug March 7, 1999 Ross is one of the finalists at the 26th Annual Canadian Sports Awards, held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on March 18, 1999 (my 18th birthday! :D) Depending on how the CBC strike goes, it may be on TV on that day at 7:00pm. I'm not sure if Ross will show up because he might be at Stratton for the snowboard U.S. Open, but wherever you are, go Ross! ^O/

Also, Ross' CD, fulliedialedinn, has sold 30 000 copies. Read about this on Canoe's Jam! Music. Thanks to Friend for the tip!

dummy plug February 19, 1999 Has everybody been chatting with Ross yesterday (Feb. 18)? If you haven't, then check out the transcript for yesterday's session; Ross talked about snowboarding, antique art, even "boxers or briefs?"! Ross answered some of my questions too; look for the name "Triforce9664" in the transcript! dummy plug
dummy plug February 16, 1999 Some late breaking news of Ross' whirlwind Toronto tour—it turns out that Ross will appear on two shows by Prime TV on tomorrow (Wednesday) and Thursday:

1. On Wednesday he'll be on a comedy show called "Bynon" at 6:00pm Eastern time (thank to my loyal correspondent Friend);

2. On Thursday, he'll be on PrimeTonight with Eric Tunney at 11:30pm EST, same bat channel.

Boy, Ross sure is in a mad rush these days......does he ever run out of energy?

Winners will be announced at 33rd annual B.C. athlete of the year awards on March 10, 1999. Congrats, Ross, and see you at the awards dinner! dummy plug
dummy plug January 16, 1999 This is for you ladies out there: Shoppers Drug Mart's IMAGES magazine has a new picture of Ross, along with a small interview. If you go to your nearest Shoppers Drug Mart and buy $10.00 worth or more of cosmetics (or dish $2.00 plus tax if you don't want the cosmetics), you can get a copy of the magazine (ask for the Winter 1999 edition). Warning, though......the picture is not for the faint of heart! *^^* Thanks to Sunny for the tip!

P.S. I have a copy of the picture on this website, but buy the magazine if you want to see the larger version.
