Back in 2006, Preston had an idea: have listeners build sleds using only 4 materials (Cardboard, Tape, String and Glue) and race them down a snow tubing hill. It took a lot of convincing, but the bosses at WMMR and JFBB added the The Cardboard Classic to MMR’s Day Off on the Slopes #2 (a station tradition since the mid-80’s). We did not quite know what to expect… of course your creativity blew us away!

One year we decided to burn all the sleds at the end. It looked cool for a few minutes, then we realized that was a really, really bad idea. Live and learn!
