WMMR Presents 5th Annual Cardboard Classic

On Friday, March 5th, Preston & Steve’s Cardboard Classic 2010 rocked Jack Frost Mountain. From cardboard, tape, glue and string, WMMR listeners constructed over 90 team sleds to compete for glory…and prizes. Jason Lucci from Paulsboro, NJ led a team of creative “ghostbusters” to build a Hollywood-style Stay Puft Marshmallow Man that breathed real fire.The team took home the title of “Best Design”,along with $1,000 cash & a $500 Lukoil gift card.

Coors Light awarded the “Year of Beer” award to The Ghetto Blasters, led by Dan Stonebeck from Wissinoming (Northeast Philly), for their Coors Light Radio sled, deemed the best Coors Light-themed sled. The giant boombox included working electricity that allowed spectators to hear the rock of MMR as it flew down the tubing hill.

After the Cardboard competition, thousands of MMR’ VIPs took to the slopes to ski and board, putting to use the $9.33 lift tickets they purchased thru MMR’s special VIP presale.

The day concluded with the “world famous” happy hour in the E2000 Lounge, where patrons registered for a trip to the Hot Tub Time Machine Junket in Lake Tahoe, California. Brandon Voight from Newtown Square, PA was chosen to join Preston and Steve’s Marisa Magnatta on the trek across country to mingle with John Cusack, Rob Corddry, and the other stars of the film.

WMMR midday host Pierre Robert capped the day in typical fashion with his “Baptism by Beer,” where he climbed atop the bar and poured pitcher after pitcher of beer on willing – and thirsty - station listeners.
