Great Event Chris! Thanks for putting it on.... I know how much of a pain in the ass it is to bring this together. You did a great job! Thanks to all the vendors who gave out gear and demos and thanks for all the good people who showed up. Without peps these things are not as fun. great to meet new folks. Thanks To Jeremy,Ryland and Jim Z. for coming out to tour with us slow pokes.
Special thanks to JimW for lugging my ass around in the big van all weekend. I have some pics for later posting. Are we making a sepearte thread for pics?

I want to echo Tex's thanks. Great time, great party. Great peeps. The loot was awesome and if anyone ever wonders if they should come to one of these things again, just consider this: their were 50ish people at the raffle, and there were four or five boards given away, several backpacks, skins, go-pro etc.....The company was great, the snow was good, and it was really fun for me, mostly an Eastsider, to just come and follow people around the Tahoe backcountry. Great terrain, and great access.

Nicely done BCR, and it was great to see you and so many folks there that I hadn't seen since last year: PJ/PuffNat, Wavy, Tex, Swanny, Josh H, JimW, Scruffy, Schwalbster (wait til you see this guy's method off of the cornice on Judah), Ecobrad, etc, DJGee, NoKnees,(sorry if I forgot anyone), I didn't get to ride with everyone I would've liked to have ridden with, but next time....

Can't wait to see the pics Tex!

^^^^ SUPER weaksauce! I sent the seller and email trying to confirm. He will be blackballed from future raffles if it turns out to be him. If he sees this and wants to do the right thing, contact me. I'd like to see that board go to one of the lady splitters at the event or someone that will use it. Not sell it. :thumbsdown:

HUGE thanks to everyone that came out!!! It meant a lot to be supported in this event. Thanks! :thatrocks:

Here's a crosspost from this thread. viewtopic.php?f=2&t=15177 (take not of the bottom if you want event shirts!)

Just wanted to provide some follow up to the Donner Split Party presented by splitboard.com, give a big shout-out to all the attendees/sponsors, and share some pics from the event.

First off, thanks to everyone that came out to support this event! We had about 30 people stay at the lodge and 50 show up for the raffle. We raised $1,402 for our local Avy Center (SAC)!!! They are stoked/grateful and these donations help ensure their valuable services to the bc community continue. For my friends that couldn't make it (not mentioning any names!), hopefully we will see you next year!

Second, thanks to the Clair Tappaan Lodge for having us and to the following sponsors for their support!

Voile
Venture
Spark
Jones Snowboards
Arbor
Never Summer
G3
K2
Local Knits
Stance Socks
Osprey
Down The Middle splitboards
Best Buy

Also wanted to thank Andy from Sierra Avalanche Center for the Friday night discussion, Jeremy Jones and the Zellers for letting folks tag along on a group tour, as well as the the Jones and K2 reps that came out. :thatrocks:

One of the things I look to improve next year is to have a better demo area. This year is was a little difficult to let folks demo boards due to limited space.

Here's some pics:

Got a bunch of shirts made in time for the event but couldn't pick them up till Sunday. let me know if you want one...or two! Use the paypal button in this link to buy...add your size, color pref, and shipping address in the notes. http://www.splitboard.com/index.php/mission/support

$15+$5 (shipping anywhere in the US) for Donner shirts, $20+$5 for sb.com. Only one shipping if you order more than one shirt. I'll post a separate thread soon too.
