Southern Ontario Session '07

It's on: Friday January 26 2007; Osler Bluff Ski Club

If you missed it last year, this is a great chance to get together with one of the strongest carving communities at one of the best hills in Ontario. Whatever your abilities, its a great opportunity to ride with others and share the gift.

If you were there last year or the year before, you need to come this year for the terrain improvements. We have increased the width of three of the most carvable hills: Exhibition, Lookout, and Breakaway. And for those that start to flag at midday, there's a new espresso bar in the clubhouse.

I am still organizing the day and I will post more info as it becomes available but YYZ Canuck and Coiler will be at the event and hopefully they can add some interest to the day (unfortunately the Club won't permit a demo tent though).

If you are interested, I need to know with some certainty. Osler Bluff is a private club and I need to provide a count of guests prior to the event. I will be looking for a confirmation from you around 2 weeks from the date. At that time I will need some real names that I can put on the guest list. I would request that you leave your skiing friends at home for this event. I have booked space for about 30 at the moment and I would like the spots to go to those of us that ride carving gear. If you could e-mail me expressing interest, I will start publishing a tentative guest list in a few weeks.

If I have contacted you by e-mail already and you have responded, there is no need to reply again. There are participants from last year that I have not been able to contact and would love to hear from:

The Carveitup crew (alias the McNally clan)

Imo Wienert (love to see any new carving creations from your shop)

Anatoly (Tolik)

Sleevez

In the meantime, pray for snow.

One hour north of Toronto near Barrie. Easy drive. Bring Derf.

I don't think I can miss work. I work in the maple sugaring equipment business and winter is our high season. Not only we can't really miss a day, we often work overtime almost everyday.:smashfrea

But I will check, you never know...

..I think I could make the event a bit more worthwhile by getting you tickets for the Saturday and Sunday as well. I have to keep this offer very restricted though because I only have the ability to sign in 4 guests each weekend day. So this would be for one or two people really (I have family members that I have to buy tickets for).

Pat Donnelly, if you're up for this you would certainly be welcome. I think I must have met you at SES '05 or one of the ECES events but I can't recall. Let me know.

Thanks to others for the e-mail. Yesterday at MSLM was just a foretaste. Its going to be a great session.

Derf:

You could call it a business trip. One of our riders, Ken McCutcheon runs an award winning maple syrup business in the area.

I think you need to make a sales call.

It would be hard to convince my boss to make a sales call since I am in the engineering department, more specifically production.

Sorry for the long wait on this update. I have been watching the conditions and trying to decide whether to let this happen or call it off. At the moment, the weather over the next week or so looks promising (at least for snow-making) so I am making the call to go ahead with SOS. I think we would all welcome some time on snow even if the conditions are not optimal and not all of the trails are open. So let's make this thing happen.

The following have confirmed for the event:

Chris Ball

Chris Couse

Rob Cox

Monique Cox

Henry Kim

Peter Halsall

John Hevesi

Justin Hines

Chris Houghton

Greg Marsden

Ken McCutcheon

John McCutcheon

Beth McNally

Mike McNally

Evgeny Minkevich

Andrea Morgan

Dave Morgan

John O'Brien

Julien Bouchy-Picon

Derek Peeling

Victor Plopeanu

Dan Stewart

Rob Sydia

Arthur Tateishi

Gabe Tung

Bruce Varsava

Leslie Varsava

Imo Weinert

Derek Peeling

Beth McNally

Let me know if I have overlooked anyone. Otherwise I am calling the list closed as I have hit my target of 30.

If you have not been to the event before you can find driving directions here. It is always good to get an early start so aim to arrive about 8:30 to be on the hill before 9:00. You will need to pick up your ticket at ticket window that is located in the outdoor passage under the main clubhouse. Boot changing and lockers are through the doors on your left off of the passage (there are no coin lockers, only cubbies). I will be carrying an FRS radio tuned to channel 7/7. A number of others will do likewise and it is a good way to find us if you get separated or arrive late. I would recommend that we break for lunch around 11:45 (this will give us a good run at the hills when they clear over the lunch hour). We will use the upper chalet (top of the high speed quad) for lunch. Bring a lunch if you wish to or you can buy a lunch at the Upper Chalet.

Expect less than ideal conditions. Some runs will not be opened by then but I am guessing about half will be. Certainly all of the runs around the high speed quad will be open and some at the Orchard Chair may be open (hopefully Exhibition).

Hope too see you all there.
