The players prepare...

... The players stand in a line... "Fox" cameras all around capturing every moment of the tense action...

... Along the line an assistant travels... handing each player their Frost Thrower (Like a flame thrower but it "throws" frozen CO2... just like a fire extinguisher but larger)...

... Another assistant lags behind to check that each players foot protection gear is functioning (each player wears rubber socks with mild heat generators in contact with their skin)...

...The players each select a size of CO2 canister to use (the larger canisters are bulky... meaning they may loose their balacne quicker... but will have more dry ice to use... while the smaller canisters are the opposite)... and sets the yield setting (the Frost Throwers are built to allow different amounts of CO2 to be propelled from the nozzel... they set this to their advantage)...

The first whistle blows and the path (slightly below ground level... only slightly) is covered in cold water...

The second whistle blows and the player activates his Frost Thrower, icing the path ahead of him as he makes his/her way onto the path (with as much horizontal speed as he/she can)...

...The good player manages to keep the water just ahead of him/her frozen while he slides behind the wake of his/her Frost Thrower...

...The winner is able to travel the longest distance while staying on the ice, as possible... but they must always move forward... they must not stop...

       I'm not sure... hey, if you want them you can have them? but it's gonna be hard to balance with Jam dounuts, a Forst thrower, and brushes...

       No CO2 canisters--just give 'em a little runway and have 'em slide on the ice.
