Save the date! The usual Boston motley crew will be showing the Powderwhores telemark ski film "Flakes" on December 9th at 7:30 (doors open at 6:45) at the Regent Theatre in Arlington, MA. Tickets cost $10, and you get one raffle ticket with your purchase. Additional raffle tickets available for sale. Watch the trailer.

This year's beneficiaries are the Catamount Trail Association and the Maine Association for Search and Rescue.

EMS, Wilderness House, and NATO, among others, are helping sponsor the event. Should be a good time!

The Northeast Backcountry Coalition is a newly formed group dedicated to dealing with issues of the backcountry skiing/riding community. Disclaimer: I'm a member of the NEBC.
 
Yes, tickets are for sale at the door only, AFAIK. The Regent is supposed to put info up on their site but I haven't seen it yet.
 
Here's an update on the raffle SWAG:

From NATO: Weekend tickets to the telemark fest at MRG
From EMS: Orion Jacket
From REI: Trail 25 Backpack
From MRG: A pair of lift tickets
From Wilderness House: a pair of skis, a free ski tune, and two sets of Silvretta Pure AT bindings
From Jay: Season pass and a pair of lift tickets

Hope to see you there!

D--- you, Metsky. Now I gotta balance the expense of getting to Arlington and missing time for other outdoor opportunities against the pleasure of joining you folks.

That is an amazing trailer. I'm not personally a huge fan of "hucking" as a pastime, but those scenes of that skier landing the jumps and making the turns in Telemark style were really fun to see.

Too bad the snow couldn't have been a little better . . .
 
Another bump to add more swag! :D

Oh, well if there will be swag of course I'll try to be there! ;)
 
I know what you're thinking. DId he pull out of the hat six raffle tickets, or five?
 
Final bump for the show tomorrow! Hope to see some VFTTers there! :D
 
Thanks to all those who came to the showing of a wonderful and funny ski movie. We had a small but extremely lucky VFTT contingent who attended, I'll let them out themselves and their haul if they so desire.

Think snow!

Excellent ski flick that Metsky, Seeker, and their pinhead friends sponsored last evening. I was feeling lucky going in (well, do you ya, punk?) and bought five extra raffle tickets, but I did not win anything. :(:rolleyes:
 
Thanks to Dave, Brenda, and the others for putting the show on.

I even managed to be one of the lucky ticket holders... :)

Dr D:
I heard a rumor that you were there, but didn't manage to spot you. Maybe next time...

Hey, Doug, Which schwag did you win?

A book that might be of interest to readers of this thread just came out in paperback last month.

“Two Planks and a Passion: The Dramatic History of Skiing by Roland Huntford, 2008. The ski is older than the wheel. Huntford’s history of the ski begins 20,000 years ago in the last ice age, and draws on original Old Norse and Russian sources as well as Greek, Roman, Arabic, and Chinese texts. It traces the evolution of skiing through social and political contexts (much more fun than it sounds) and notes where it changed the course of history in exploration, war, and peace.”

I got the second AT ski binding.

As I walked up to get it, Dave helpfully reminded me that AT bindings release...

(I now use a releasable Tele binding, but the injury occurred while using 3-pin BC XC bindings. I always hoped that the boot would torque out if you cranked hard on it. Guess not... :( )

Nice to see you, Doug, Dave, Brenda, & Steve. Sorry to have missed you, Dr. D. It was a good flick, nice ski porn, and thank you very much for my raffle prizes. :)
