Snowboarder comes home before world competition

Davey Baird, who grew up in Homer, is preparing for a snowboarding season different from any one in previous years. After qualifying for a spot on the Freeride World Tour, Baird will set off in January to Chamonix, France, to compete against top snowboarders from around the world.

A fundraiser at Alice’s Champagne Palace Saturday, Nov. 12 from 5 to 8 p.m. aims to help him raise money to cover his travel expenses, which include flights to and from Europe, food and lodging in between competitions.
