Spyder Recruiting Freeriders For House Team

BOULDER, CO, September 18, 2002 — Spyder Active Sports is seeking applicants for its newly formed Venom House Team. This group of skiers and snowboarders from across North America will represent Spyder1s Venom brand of freeride outerwear at regional levels. The team1s purpose is to promote freeriding at local, grassroots levels, where a passion for the sport is strong and enthusiasm is contagious.

Freeriders of all skill levels are invited to submit a resume, proposal, video footage, or any form of sponsorship request for consideration. Written submissions are accepted through October 31, 2002. The program goes into effect December 1, 2002, and members are on the team for one season. Spyder will contact chosen team members via phone and post the team roster December 1 on www.spyder.com. Each House Team member will receive a Venom product sponsorship, and one team member will have the chance to be sent to a summer freeriding camp in 2003. Full details of the program are found on www.spyder.com.
