Why We Love Bibs Contest Winners

Last week we held a contest for all of our current bib-customers, to see who could write the best description for why they loved bibs. A love letter to bibs, if you will. Word got out (thanks Marty!) and we received over 350 individual entries. We laughed. We cried. We shook our heads. We should have known, but the overall creative powers of our customers are astonishing. You are all awesome! And you all clearly LOVE bibs. 

We picked one, grand prize winner, and a two-way tie for runner-up. Without further adieu, our favorite entry for the first-ever bib writing contest: "To Bib is Human" by Luke B of Lyle, WA. 

To Bib is Human.
As infants we're bibbed to wipe up the drool
And keep the whirled peas from hitting the stool
As toddlers we're bibbed to keep the dirt out
Of all nooks and crannies that make our moms shout
As teenagers we bib cause we think it looks cool
We met some hot farmer and made it a rule
As snow riders we bib cause bibs are the best
Warm, dry and perfect, like a feather lined nest
We stash all our goodies, drop trou with ease,
Zip 'em on open to let in the breeze
Revel in comfort, function and steeze
Then zip it all up for the deep pow brain freeze
If it wasn't for bibs we'd all have cold backs
Snow in our jackets, and in our ass cracks
We rock the TREWTH bib since we live for deep pow
And the time to climb in 'em is obviously NOW!!!
We commend Luke's simple but lyrical composition. It tugged at our bib-nostalgia, while perfectly addressing the functional benefits of bibs for modern-day powder shredders. Congratulations, Luke! For your efforts, you'll be awarded a brand new pair of bibs. Yeehaw! 
No for the runner ups...winners of an I'm Peaking Hat and an exclusive discount on TREW Bibs: Kirk T and his two entries, one to the tune of Jay Z's 99 Problems and a Bib ain't one and Dr. Suess' Green Eggs and Ham:

Kirk had good timing here because Chris has a 19-month old son who is very much starting to get into Dr. Suess, so this really rolled off the tongue. There's potential for an actual children's story here, Kirk, should we make one?

And last, but not least, Leah C, for her version of Lizzo's Boys:

Bibs! Make a snow girl go crazzzzyyyyyy!
I , like, long bibs, supa fly bibs,
zip the side bibs, let me ride bibs
I like handy bibs, with the butt flap,
on a carve break, no shoulder strap
Reinforced bib, with the detail,
keep me all dry, in a yard sale.
From the cute bibs, to the brute bibs,
You on my route, Bibs, you my G suit, Bibs.
Bibbie yeah I need you. 
Can't love that pow with-out, you.
Need you for riding groomed, too.  
What's Hood plus snow? Four, three, TREW, bib

 

Leah's subject line to her email was "I hope someone there likes Lizzo.." She was right! Katherine and Brittany are particularly fond of Lizzo's soulful sounds, so this was an easy winner. 

We are so impressed with everyone who entered. Taking a break from the office routine to read through your entries was TREWly the joy of our week! Nate and I are going to be teasing out more of the entries on social media.

You're all wild and crazy powder fiends and we love it. Stay just the way that you are.
