I need a green sponsor November 4, 2011 at 4:17 pm #645938 Shift 95 Posts Its in the calendar….I’m in and look forward to getting out and meeting some fellow splitters. Thanks for organising Wade! :rock: November 5, 2011 at 4:54 pm #645939 treepilot 352 Posts The raffle keeps getting bigger and bigger. Prior is back again with a custom splitboard, Voile is also back with a MojoRX (with Light Rail bindings), Libtech is also back and have stepped up to a splitboard as well (up from a solid board last year) and Down the Middle has also ante’d up with their DTM custom – you send them a solid, they send you a splitboard back. For those who aren’t good at math, that’s 4 (FOUR!) splitboards up for grabs at the raffle this year. Plus other goodies too – check the full list – and keep watching for more updates!

I need a green sponsor Sweet! Calgary is biggest airport, likely best rates. Spokane and a rental car would be another option – likely cheaper airfare, but quite a drive. I suspect green should be as plentiful as the white. Already a meter at treeline… November 5, 2011 at 7:02 pm #645941 jcocci 699 Posts Awesome! Can’t wait forth is again. See if I can win me another split board. :thumbsup: November 11, 2011 at 9:59 pm #645942 treepilot 352 Posts 2012 version of the logo is out.
