The Sledding Hill Rules

1. Sled track is for sledding.

2. Walk up the hill on either side of sled track. Take your pick! The choice is yours. Either side is preferable to walking up the sled track. (See rule #3.)

3. The sled track is not for walking back up the hill.(See rule #2.)

4. The sled track is not for plopping down on your behind to relax. Sledders want to use it, and if you do this you are now IN THE DAMN WAY.

5. If you are going to run down the hill after a small child, please do not run down the sled track and leave your large, booted footprints which gnarl up the track for everyone else.

6. Outdoor fires are nice, but maybe - just maybe! - not appropriate to build one at the bottom of the sled hill. Do I need to explain why?

7. If you cannot or will not follow these rules, then please stay home.

Thank you.

- The Establishment.

Sounds like you had some "special" sledding companions.

I woulda sledded right into them. Backwards.
