If you’re planning a trip to Denver you should definitely plan on being there Jan. 29th. It’s gonna be a huge night because TransWorld SNOWboarding is opening up the Rider’s Poll Awards to the public. Not only that but they have an outstanding line up of nominees for every category. I couldn’t even start to tell you who might be on stage accepting an award. Thankfully the polling is going to be left up the people that know the industry the best. TransWorld is putting together their results based on what 125 pro-snowboarders from all around the globe have to say.
The Rider’s Poll Awards is also going to be honoring their past winners of the Legend Award which have been Craig Kelly, Terry Kidwell and Damien Sanders. They will also be inducting a new legend to the club, Tom Burt. But before all that, the voting is going to be opened up for all of us to decide the winner of the Reader’s Poll Award. The nominees of this category are yet to be announced, but keep an eye on twsnow.com to get your chance to vote.
If you want to get tickets to attend the Rider’s Poll Awards go here. It is going to be held at the Fillmore Auditorium in Downtown Denver during the SIA trade show.
