Starting off on a nearby park bench, Harry placed his skis together as close as possible to make a single line. Then skiing about twenty feet or so, he stopped, placed a ski pole down and swung over so he could be parallel to the line he just made. Then he slowly skied backwards, turned, and made two more tracks.
He placed a pole into the snow again, and swung over to an empty square he had just made. He took off one ski and hip-hopped across the tracks of snow he had just made, stopping every now and then to make a small circle or an X.
He went back to the bench and stood on top. "I did it," he said, looking down at the snow. "It's Tic-Tac-Toe and I won!"by Joseph L. Rose, Mondragone, Italy
