bobdea Posted November 2, 2005 Report Share Posted November 2, 2005 this has come up a few times from a few people including myself, I feel that if a bunch of us put a little effort into getting more people into the sport it could help it grow. my basic idea is to get a few of us that have the extra gear and in the same general area to build some sort of access to entry level gear with out the person wanting to give alpine a try a chance with out having to either buy the gear or go to the ECES or SES since not everyone is close to the site of either event, it does not fit their schedule or budget. with a few of us that are gear junkies a pretty wide range of gear that would suit most people well would be available. people could either find someone to take them out here or it could be a place to find loner gear for people we already know. Basically what it would take is a few people willing to loan out gear mostly boots in the smaller sizes and boards in the smaller sizes as well, and people willing to take a day to help a noob get turning I have a pile of gear here including some boots in the 23 range and a couple small decks from 151 on up any ideas are welcome as well as if anyone would want to set up days this coming winter that possibly we could get groups of people new to this sport together I know that anything having to do with getting new people on the snow is at least a month away but the earlier we think about this sort of stuff the better it comes together when the time comes. anyway, I hope there are some likeminded folks out there :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
