crackaddict Posted October 25, 2018 Report Share Posted October 25, 2018 (edited) The Compound in Revelstoke is hosting a carving session this season, and hopefully for many seasons to come. This is the first annual Revelstoke Applied Carving Expression Session (The RACES). Free accommodation is offered to any former member of BOL (read: any member of ASB whose account was transferred over from BOL) for as many nights as they like between January 25th and February 10th. We are located just 300 yards from the gondola... The only other provision is this: if it's not a powder day, you have to ride hard boots (Rob Stevens and Mig excepted...). We have four empty bedrooms, seven available couches, and not less than a dozen decent mattresses in The Crackhouse (our community climbing gym). We have hosted up to 25 people at a time in the past, and everyone was comfortable. If we get more than eight riders at once though, some of you will have to bring your own bedding. There will be some demo boards from Thirst and Exegi. We can maybe try to get some Coilers too if there's enough interest. If we have over 20 riders, we'll also be eligible for discounted lift tickets. On the evening of February 2nd, Oliver Delorie (oliverlukedelorie.com) will be performing a live concert at The Compound. This night is not to be missed. On February 10th (after riding of course) we'll all carpool or caravan down to Turner Mountain to carve up some perfect Montucky corduroy and keep the party going (about seven hours' drive). Despite the acronym, no actual races will be held. Except for maybe a Chinese Downhill on the Last Spike: a ten mile wandering journey which very slowly descends 5600 vertical feet. If you don't know what a Chinese Downhill is, see this link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Qe3HBqFhTU. Winner gets bragging rights and maybe a Play Doh trophy.

No PMs please, let's keep the psych public! This is going to be a blast, cash in those vacation days now!
