ok, I know I'm hyping the snow, but this guy is a pretty good forecaster on the eastside, and his forecast looks promising :drool:

It would be nice if the LOGO could include the words- "eastside" or Range of Light. John Muir quotes are good also

Im really liking one of bens entries

Got school Sat. and Mon., so Sunday is a possibility. Also thinking Thurs.-Fri. might be an option if there are gonna be some early birds down there. I'm flat broke, so if anyone is cruising down from teh Tahoe area those days I'd be stoked to ride together.

As of right now there is an OFFICIAL LOGO CONTEST for the party. The winner will get to see his/her artwork immortalized on a brand new pair of Sparks Bindings!

The only catch is...we must get an adobe illustrator file to Will by monday morning. So work fast!!!

Truthfully this is such short notice that old designs will be considered as well, just get 'em to us ASAP. (my screename) at gmail

Edit: Since we didn't have an "official" name, we'll let the designer pick that too. Just keep the "K" in Kalifornia out of respect for the parties' founding father (tex).

We all know that's just because TEX can't spell. :)

But speaking of TEX, I was thinking maybe the logo should immortalize him since he organized the first couple. I'm no graphic artist, but here are a few pics of TEX that maybe someone could start with and hack into the basis for a suitable logo. :)

As a reminder, here's the form factor we're talking about:

Oh, a few other things:

- Ray I've been working on Fassy, I'm sure he'd love to come but he's got some other commitments that weekend. Last I heard he was gonna see if he could possibly swing a day.

- Regarding the cleanup, I may be imagining things but I thought last time we either paid for or talked about paying for having the housekeeping clean up on Sunday so we didn't have to do that. I take it that's not happening this year?

- It's true we've been getting some nice late season dumpage. I think though it's only brought us up to CA average levels hasn't it? Of course, after the past couple years, average seems pretty huge! I woudn't complain about a powder dump, but at this point I'm ready for corn. Show the out of towners what CA is really famous for! (Then again, maybe I'm just bitter about not scoring as epicful pow as I would have liked earlier this week... :))

The dweeb has this to say:

Quote:
A BUMP UP IN THE SNOWFALL EARLY NEXT WEEK. BY THE LOOKS OF THE NEW HPC DATA, MAMMOTH APPEARS TO BE ONCE AGAIN IN THE BULLSEYE FOR MAX PRECIP FROM THIS 24 TO 30 HOUR EVENT. 2 FEET TO TWO-1/2 FEET SEEMS REASONABLE FOR THE UPPER ELEVATIONS BY TUESDAY AM. ANOTHER SHORT WAVE IS SHAPING UP FOR LATE WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY.

Pretty sure I'm in for Thurs, can't make the party so I wanna hook up with any early birds. Looks like good chance of scoring some nice lines in pow - storm coming in warm and hopefully not followed by a big warm up. Coming from Tahoe if anyone wants to hook up.
