Yeah, between play performances, my brother's graduation from college and more performances, everything has conspired against me this weekend. It'd be funny if it didn't bother me so much.

No I'm good to ride on Friday evening, just Saturday is out of the question for me. Sunday afternoon is also doable if Friday is closed. I sent you an email so we can stop clogging the thread

At this point in the season I don't really have a preference.

OK so when we first announced the meet-up we promised there would be some "surprises" and I'm not talking about the batwing or the goat. One of the surprises is this:

Josh from Marhar Snowboards in Grand Rapids will be meeting us up there on Saturday with a slew of prototype 2013 boards. Boards will be in sizes 151, 154, 156 and 158 so they should accommodate everyone. They are looking for feedback before they start production so this is kind of a twist on a "focus group" for them. We get to have fun, snowboard, and ride their new/proto stuff, and they get some feedback to make final tweaks to production models. Win-win. Of course don't feel like you're obligated to do this, but if you ever wanted to try one of their boards this is a good opportunity.

There is still another surprise too, which will be revealed later.

Maybe you can just do mellow runs. We have several cruisers in this group that might not be following us into the woods (snow coverage allowing).

But yes, I expect lots of boozing to be involved at Crystal Palace.
