On Saturday, November 3rd 2012, the Academy crew overtook Trollhaugen for their season opener. Jordan and Jonas Michilot, Zac Marben and friends met up to celebrate the official start to the Midwest season at the infamous “Troll”.
The tow rope was packed from open to close with the number of tricks attempted topped 1,000,000. A new season record. This was largely due to the fact that the Academy crew was there representing.
