Im sitting on my couch with "Art Of Flight" playing. I already plowed through "Further" for the umpteenth time, and some random snowboard movies on iTunes. I took my dog out for a quick walk about 11pm and that's when I noticed it- in the air. Just that little tiny hint of "winter air". I wouldn't say it was cold, but it was there. Or maybe it was just my imagination....but I know us Calgarians have sixth sense about this kind of thing. It's coming. It's not here yet, but it will be sooner than you think.
Sooner than you think, YOU will be shredding pow. Ain't that a beautiful thing.
So, that leads me to this meetup invite- to get as many of you as possible to come out to one of this meetup groups sponsors event-
The Royal Snowboard Film Fest.
On our home page at http://www.meetup.com/Calgary-Snowboard-Splitboard/ you can see on the left the special group rate members of this group get when buying clothing or snowboards and gear at Royal.
Royals snowboard movie festival was a lot of fun last year and this year there are several dates to choose from to hang out and watch the latest snowboard movies. The details are here- https://www.facebook.com/RoyalSnowFest?sk=events&app_data
So, instead of making 4 meetups, I suggest organizing yourselves by rsvp'ing here on meetup.com then use the facebook page for this group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/153904434656212/ to chat and organize who is going with who on what night. Or use the comments feature on the actual meetup event page- it works just like facebook (finally).
So yeah, shout out to Diana Izard who just joined while I was writing this. Welcome! hahaha . Hey Jon Oliver! - you still live in Calgary? Kristian Gough, take that Heli trip in Revy at the end of last season?!?! We are 402 Powder Hounds strong to start off the[masked] snowboard season. Pretty cool! And if you are new to the club or the city or both, just rsvp and come hang out. We're a friendly bunch :)
Looking forward to a great season. I added a good friend and business partner to my real estate team recently, so Im hoping that means more days off to ride this year!
Cheers guys, the film fest is a good way to wet your appetite to ride. Approx 8 weeks and counting until sunshine opens! Possibly be out there earning turns even sooner ;-)
