    Hey Breadbox,

    That sounds like huge fun to me. Let me know how I could contribute. I don’t have a hookup on an LCD projector, though…

    I would probably be down for the trip and bbq. A little far out for me to commit though. Keep us posted.

    ps. Where you thinking a late Saturday afternoon into the evening type of gig? Is family welcome? I could probably persuade them to come with me because we could stay in our favorite hotel down there and then do the bay area tourist thing the next day. Kill two birds with one stone. 🙂

    We’re planning something fairly family friendly. Beverages for enhancement but not a sloshfest. I’ll post something more formal when we hammer out some dates. Probably a 5p-9p Saturday sorta thing.

    I might be able to swing that if it’s the weekend before Halloween. I can probably get the LCD projector hookup too.

    Last year some people in the Bay Area tried to get a little BC group going. We had a meet n’ greet at Zeitgeist in the city and started a little google group to keep in touch. I wouldn’t say the group is incredibly active, but I think there are around 30 or 40 members. If you want to drum up a few more people, you could send an invite to the list at:

    I’ll say. I think I got about 10 messages from that group all year (and 3 or 4 of those were from you!) 🙂

    Hey, I might be down for that. I need to get down there to visit a good friend more often anyway. I cannot commit, but I’ll try.

    Oh, and Zeitgeist is a favorite of mine. 🙂

    Alright! This is starting to sound epic. The only thing that could really put a damper on it is 18″ of fresh. 😛 Great idea BreadBox!

    Almost finalized:
    We’re looking at October 21st, 5p-9pish my house in Trestle Glen part of Oakland. We’ll have several grills going, so bring some meat / tofudogs of your choice as well as your favorite bevs (we’ll have a limited amount of bbq and beverages for those who show up emptyhanded). After the sun goes down, we’ll show “The Garden” , and whatever latest and greatest b/c skiing & boarding flix we can find (TGR and Hatchett stuff) down by the stream next to the outdoor fireplace.
    Tele & AT’ers welcome as well as splitters.
    Jim, let me know if you can secure a projector (thank you!).
    I need to lock a few other things down with some friends over the weekend before I make the “official” invite with directions – watch for it next week.

    That date should work for me. I should know about the projector by this weekend. I have a bunch of old vids from the TB series I can bring by too… Jim Rippey was The Man! 🙂

    I’m trying to lockdown a copy of Projekt Hakkonsen too.
    Jim, can you do the weekend after Halloween? One of my splitter buddies is getting married the pre-halloween weekend.

    Hello! I’d love to come along to this. I’m in Oakland and I’d love to meet more splitboarders around here. Not sure what I can contribute, but let me know if you could use a hand.

    I have a projector. It’s not terribly portable, but it would work, and it’ll throw a 250″ screen no problem. I’d say keep looking for a smaller one, but if all else fails I can remove it (easily) from my den ceiling and bring it.

    Now if by chance there’s pow to be had up here by then…
