I'll be leaving here about 2:30ish (sooner if work wants to let me go early!) .... Red Lobster for dinner tonight in CDA..... yummmmm.... can't wait to ride tomorrow.... better go get the last bag in the car (where does all this stuff come from????) and I'm trying to think if I've forgotten anything. Oh well, guess I'll figure that out when I get there!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone. I will be hitting the bunny hill @ 830am to trench up the fresh roy. Remember early loads tomorrow @ 8 am which is also the same time as the ticket office opening. You need to get a discount ticket voucher from one of us organizers to take to the ticket window. If you want to hit it right at 8am you'll need to get a ticket today. Contact me for anything you need russ 208-290-8023.

    Everyone doing early loads must sign a waiver before participating. We will be there with the forms. We also will be on the basin express chair with kram riding the chair getting pics and video.

    Being greedy

    Had a great time at SES '12 and are now on the last few days of our 3 week road trip! We are hoping for a little time at Bachelor before we get home to Spokane.Turns out that I love the SIMS carve 2 I got for Christmas this year! Can't wait to try it at Schweitzer. Please put George and I down for supper on Friday. Is there a schedule for Friday yet? How do we get discount tix?

    As far as a schedule check previos posts. I did one for the week. Basically it is meet up in the morning lapping chair which opens @ 830am. Then freeride. With photos @ a certain run and time. Lunch @ a particular time and place as well. Followed with more freeride time. Then our. Dinner swag party @ the longbridge grill down on the lake. We have schedules printed for you when you get here. You will also need to get the discount lift ticket vouchers from us too. We are hanging around the clocktower and in the daylodge coffee shop. We have kram being our host in the village. He is on crutches and should be easy to spot. Or call me Russ 208-290-8023.
