Just wondering if there's any interest in a meet? Thinking just a one day thing somewhere for the locals. I know I'll be boarding with a few of you anyway, but maybe it'd be fun to invite all to come out and join us? Maybe we'd even get our resident Alberta moderator out from Edmonton?!? :yahoo:

The trouble I see with a meet is:

1) We're all too prissy, and if the powder isn't perfect that day, people would bitch. So best to plan last minute.

2) We're all too opinionated about the hills we have (every one of them in the rockies is better than 95% of the rest of the hills in the world), so picking a specific hill would be tough. I could see Louise, Sunshine, Fernie or Kicking Horse as options: With Louise and Sunshine being the most likely options due to proximity to Calgary. Que the Louise vs. Sunshine debate...

That said, I've been on a few meets, school trips, etc. and always had a good time meeting new people and drinking new beer. It could be fun! :yahoo:

Thoughts?!? :dunno:

We would be in for this. I don't care about which resort. But let's be honest, Rabbit Hill in Edmonton is the best option.

Better yet. Lets have a pre-shred event somewhere central. Lets get together for beers in Calgary asap. Who is in?

Sounds good. I wouldn't plan too far in advance, it's almost better to not be a pow day (remember: no such thing as friends on pow days). You know me, I'll debate at length about which hill is better, but that only counts when we're talking about season passes, etc. For a one day meet, I really don't care which hill. I would pick one of the ones closer though instead of kicking horse, might get more people if it's not a big trek.

K, cool guys... For those that may be reading this but haven't responded yet: What hill would you like to go to? I think the 4 of us are probably split down the middle Louise/Sunshine.

Also, I'm still thinking a board prep day pre-season is in order. How about this weekend? Arsenal, you hosting? :D I won't have the new ironing board, but all the rest to do. Saturday night is good for me if it works for anybody else?!?

If nobody has a good waxing venue we can have it in Airdrie... I've got a good stereo and a beer fridge in my garage! :yahoo: But I'm good with wherever. The missus works until 6:00 most days so we could be in the city for 7:00...

Why don't we meet up in Airdrie at the Toad and Turtle Friday night? I can drive ***Unnamed forum cranky guy*** and the gang.
Fixed it for ya! :giggle:

I'm good with that too, I do need to tune all our gear, and once the irons hot I don't mind tuning 10 boards instead of 4... Want to hit up my house of toad and turtle first?!? Anything works for me!
