Snowboarding: Sunday Funday @ Chestnut Mountain Resort 12/29

I have had multiple requests to post something up as another medium for you guys to use to converse on where to ride this weekend besides fb so here it is.

 ( for those who haven't joined it yet, please check out - https://www.facebook.com/groups/windycityboarders/ to see where most of the group converses)

There is a group already discussing riding at Chestnut this weekend Saturday/Sunday. As I myself can only make Sunday I will offer to host that day. If you are new to group everyone is very friendly so if you see the above WCB logo on anyones gear please say hi and introduce yourself. Many members will even ride with a light blue bandana around their legs to signify themselves. Even though a meetup may only show 5-10 members going we more commonly have found that at least 20 or so may be on the hill at the same time due to so many people relying on facebook for their planning/meeting.

Meet/Greet Times/Locations:

Runs/Lifts Open: 9am

1st Meet/Greet Spot: 9:30-9:45am @ The Large Tree in between the ticket window and the hill. You can't miss it if you start walking to the hill. This will allow those who want to hit first chair/run right at opening to not miss it and also give time to the stragglers. I will hang out at the tree to welcome any newcomers.

2nd Meet/Greet Lunch Spot: 12:30-1:15pm @ the upstairs bar. We will grab a large table for those who want to take a breather, grab a beer, indulge in some cheese curds and so forth. If the weather is sunny and nice we will take the outside deck but if not look for a large group inside and just say hi (again you will probably see the logo on someones clothing or gear)

Last Meet/Greet Spot: 3:15-3:30 @ The Large Tree at the top of the hill again. This will be my personal good bye to everyone as I have 2 birthday parties to attend and cannot stay but will give anyone a last chance to meet members of the group and get some runs in before more members start calling it a day.

Please remember that everyone in the group is very friendly and these are just suggested times to meet. We encourage members to post what they are wearing the day of the event and new members to just say hi or introduce themselves to anyone sporting a WCB logo on their gear :) 

I hope this plan helps and I will do my best to accommodate for everyone as most WCB organizers are out of town this Sunday or unable to attend.

Cheers and Shred On!

    Updated the description. I have a back injury currently and am 50/50 on riding. If I don't ride I will more than likely be teaching and filming at the very least.

    For everyone newer to the group attending: Would everyone prefer to set a specific meet time at the Belvidere Oasis off 90 or at the hill next to the large tree during opening and other specific specified times?

    Also, I will be planning on grabbing a beer and the famous cheese curds at 12:45pm upstairs. Outside on the deck if it's nice or inside the bar area for those that want to meet for lunch.
