Well, if I had to guess it was rdonaldson! The guy made a great investment in raffle tickets $100 for well over 1000 in nice prizes.

 

Yes, thanks to K2 for sponsoring! Everyone is always amazed that they get to pick any ski from the K2 lineup. I was thinking of Pontoons this year...

 

Also thanks to Weems for the Diamond session I won!!! Now I have to get out there. (oh, the horror...!)

 

The Lady Harts. Note, in Scottish it's pronounced "Laddy" - so it's actually a unisex ski.

These were the subject of post raffle highly complex 4 way negotiations involving international....well...things. It still hasn't been finalized yet, (Maddoff is in jail so he wasn't involved), but they will see snow next season!

What a great event and a great sponsor list!

 

Tog, hold on to your hat, those laddy's are a great ski!!!

Weems don't pick on Tog if he skis like a girl

Thanks,

Mike

PowerBar!!!

 

How could I forget PowerBar? Robin got PowerBar to sponsor her talk and send us a bunch of product, but it got waylaid and came two days late and was subject to a bit of opportunistic pilferage, until Robin (Hood?) prevailed and all the PowerBars were restored to their shipping container and passed around.  

 

I did mention the boots--I hope they were Dalbellos. I usually keep a list...someone must have plied me with PBR...I forget.

Yes--thanks to all the great sponsors! The raffle has been an integral part of the EpicSki Academy since its inception in Brighton, and K2 has donated a pair of skis for every single event.

 

As the fortunate winner of the first beautiful Tag Heuer watch donated by Ragin' Cajun last year in Aspen, I am personally eternally grateful! It is humbling to be part of something that people find important enough to support with such generosity.

 

As rdonaldson will surely attest, there aren't very many raffles with odds like these!

 

Thanks again, to all of the sponsors, all of the ESA participants, and all those who purchased raffle tickets and helped support these great events!

 

Best regards,

Bob
