Dummy Jump 2012

The 3rd Annual Dummy Jump will take place March 17th. If you're building a dummy, here are some helpful tips: Give it some weight. Dummies need to be a little heavy to pick up the speed needed for a 20 foot jump and serious airtime.Make sure it slides straight. If using skis, measure them at tip, middle and tail to make sure they're perfectly parallel.Have fun with it! Get creative. Materials we've seen used in the past: bathtub, washing machine, wheelchair, keg, and a toilet. Just don't use hazardous materials or fireworks.For a video of the Dummy Jump from last year, click here. Click here for some pictures from the past for creative ideas
