(We learn from Kiri that the Tri-Base ski races scheduled to be run on Centauri Base had to be held on Sirius due to a severe rainstorm. We also find out the cost of her replacement skis which would be exorbitant if was in dollars. With the higher dimensional participants all capable in one or more mental abilities, special monitoring had to be installed to prevent an accidental use of PK in the heat of competition.) 

Russ: hey Kiri, how’s the ski race is going this year? I haven’t…..

Kiri: I’m on the team.

Skip: you’re on the team?

Russ: where are they going to hold it at this year? Is it still going to be the same place on Centauri Base?

Kiri: no….

Russ: oh no.

Kiri: no.

Russ: what happened?

Kiri: they had a severe rainstorm.

Russ: oh no.

Kiri: and we haven’t got the setup so it’s being hosted on Sirius and they’re panicking.

Skip: oh I bet they are, I’ll bet they are.

Kiri: uh-huh.

Russ: well congratulations, have you done any trials yet?

Kiri: yeah.

Russ: how did you do?

Kiri: I doing pretty good, not doing as good as I was hoping and it’s taking time getting used to my new skis.

Russ: oh yeah, you broke the old ones.

Kiri: uh-huh.

Russ: hmm.

Skip: well set your mind to it and you can do it.

Kiri: well they’re not the design that I want but they’ll work, they’re workable.

Skip: good, good.

Kiri: I may make a few modifications. I’ve got two years before my replacement set will be made and ready.

Russ: hmm, so that person was able to make them for you finally?

Kiri: (sighs) yes and it cost.

Skip: I’ll bet it did.

Kiri: seriously cost. It cost a whole entire line named after her.

(we hear whistles of amazement)

Russ: (to Laura) she designs clothes.

Kiri: uh-huh. So I've got this whole entire line that is her line.

Laura: oh.

Skip: good Lord.

Kiri: uh-huh and she gets the revenue from it.

Russ: probably sell well too.

Kiri: probably will and it’s not ski wear which is what I thought she would’ve gone after.

Russ: hmm, she wants a line of bathing suits?

Kiri: no.

Skip: sportswear?

Kiri: no.

Laura: eveningwear?

Kiri: no, no…..spring wear.

Laura: ohh.

Skip: no kidding?

Kiri: uh-huh.

Skip: that’s a hell of a line.

Kiri: light, summery outfits or spring outfits.

Skip: yeah.

Russ: well good luck with this year anyway.

Kiri: yeah, I hope to pick up another medal.

Russ: well with the change in venue, perhaps it will throw the other racers off too.

Kiri: yeah, it’s throwing everybody off, it could be fun, could be fun. And the area that they hosted it last year they can’t host it in this year for the simple reason that there are a couple of festivals that go on in that area and they were early last year because of those festivals and the scheduling and everything, we’ve had to push them further into the year which means the races are going to be held in possibly spring-like conditions which is going to make it very entertaining.

Russ: why don’t you guys hold it at Hades Base where you can control the weather?

Kiri: we don’t have the setup right now.

Russ: oh.

Skip: oh boy.

Kiri: we don’t start the construction and everything for that until the summer.

Skip: oh boy.

Kiri: because we’ve got to have six months warning whilst there’s no snow on the ground to build the bases where all the equipment will get set up and then we’ve got to line the courses with the monitoring equipment to make sure nobody cheats. I mean PK’s right out. Can’t use that whilst racing so we’ve got to put all of that in before the races are held.

Russ: hmm.

Skip: hmm.
