Royal Board Shop Snowboard Film Festival Presents...

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 ;-)

    Hey Graeme yes I did do the heli trip last year, it was some of the best runs of my life but I think we can do better this year. I just got my GNU Billy Goat split board so lots of tours this year.

    • ryan

      Hells ya. Climbing a better. Art of flight is on Netflix anyways.

      September 25, 2013

    • Graeme M.

      Art of flight came out last year, or maybe it was 2 years ago now?? Anyway, these are all new movies...

      September 27, 2013

  • Malu C.

    Sorry everyone, have to do a presentation for work. Enjoy!

    September 26, 2013

  • Robert R.

    I'm down for Thursday October 3rd! Also into lots of split trips this year, looking forward to the season and new powder buddies!

    September 26, 2013

  • ryan

    Probably a stupid question cause maybe I missed them and didn't see but what movies are playing ?
    Just the art of flight or others ?

    September 25, 2013

  • Graeme M.

    I think im gonna grab the $40 ticket and see as many as I can. If you look close on royals site there are a few nights with 2 -3 snowboard movies per night. Again- check their website for most current info. I think I will go the 3rd and see about other nights, depending on work etc but I want to see Dopamine the most, which is on the 5th...

  • Graeme M.

    Who is planning to go on just the Oct 3rd showing? Who is planning to see more than one show? Film fest runs 3-5th I believe. See Royals website for details. http://royalboardshop.com/royal_v2/
