New Members, Introduce Yourselves! - Page 8  

post #211 of 239
Welcome to all you new members.

Don't have time to welcome each person everytime.

MM, You will notice I edited your post. While everyone is welcome to their opinion, I would rather our members not "slam" other BBS's or forums by name. No need for us to slip into a
"we're better than them" flame war.

I thank you and all the members for trying to keep our board civil.

Welcome guys! Vamos, I think Prague is the most beautiful city in the world!
post #222 of 239
Way to endear yourself, Vamos. Love your name.

Howderpound gets my vote for a cool name too and the tagline is terrific. Right on.

Welcome and ski on.
post #223 of 239
You guys... thanks.

WTFH - any size you want mate - so long as you come to Prague for it.

LM - It is beautiful, though I kinda like Barcelona too. You are totally welcome to crash at my pad if ever you are in Prague again - I guess that goes to all the bears.

Are you sure you mean that???



I've been to Barcelona before, loved the place - great architecture, some of Gaudi's stuff was amazing. I haven't made it to Prague yet, but I wasmaking music last night and our new drummer is from the Czech Republic. Haven't spoken much to her yet, as English is her second language, and I only speak English, Irish, French and a bit of Romanian .

Any tips on what I could say to her in her native tongue?

WTFH - with beer prices being what they are in Prague... h_ll, I'll take a hit on it.

WRT your drummer girl - depends what you want to communicate, but you could start with

hele, prosim te (name) zkus trochu zpomalit - based on my experience with new drummers being always too fast that should break the ice nicely

</font>[/quote]I would be careful there as Czech beer is fairly strong (not as strong as some stuff you get in Belgium though) and addictive. One pint will make you forget about Guiness and real alles for good.

Thanks, Vamos, but I was thinking more along the lines of:
"Mit te dostal nejaky Irsky ve te?"

(although that may be completely wrong, I can't find any good on-line English-Czech dictionaries)

Thanks! i wish the tagline weren't so true

it is nice to have some like-minded people to chat with thru the non-mental health days (read: any day not spent up on a mountain)... thanks for the welcomes!!
post #229 of 239
WTFH - right dude, sorry missed that... that would be "Mas v sobe neco z Ira?" and the tagline "a chtela bys mit?"

must be getting old...

Vamos,
Thanks!

(Alta, there's another language for you to tell me "no dude, don't do it!")

Oops! I guess I forgot to introduce myself [img]redface.gif[/img]

Originally I am from Russia, first learned to ski on cross-coutnry skis (was a school champion in 7th-10th grades, was on the college XC team), but then at 18 my friend got me into alpine skiing, and I was hooked.

My first skis were wooden 215-cm boards from the 1960s (I was a first-year student in Russia, so I used my dad's old skis [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img] ) which I could not possibly flex with my 55 kilograms (now at 180 lbs I probably could ). Nor could I rotate it into a stem christie. That's how I learned the javeline turn and discovered that I didn't need a wedge. My first boots and bindings were from the 1960 too.

My first wages as a student went into a newER pair of skis and boots and second into a trip to the Caucasus for a ski instruction camp. The instructors were happy to use me for demonstrations, as it turned out I was not that far behind them [img]graemlins/angel.gif[/img] and could communicate the transition from beginner to intermediate skier more easily than they could.

When we came to the States (CA), again my first paycheck went into skis and boots, much to my wife's dismay. Now we are a family of four (3.5) skiers, as our younger daughter is already learning how to ski. (She started at 2-1/2 [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img] a year ago) To make sure we never get stuck in the same level and always have something to look forward to, we joined the league racing community six years ago. Now we are fully hooked. I wouldn't want to move anywhere that is longer than a 4-hour drive away from skiing.

Oh, BTW: please forgive me for being too verbose in my posts: that's the engineer in me :
