    Alpentalics Anonymous, a 12-Step Invitational, Feb 13-15, 2020

    What are the Twelve Steps of Alpentalics Anonymous?

    The Twelve Steps are a set of guiding principles in Stoke Addiction Treatment that outline actions for tackling problems including Alpentalism, Drug Addiction, and Powder Compulsion.

    Step 1: Admit that you are powerless over Alpental; that your life has become unmanageable.

    Step 2: Come to believe that a Powder greater and deeper than yourself could restore you to sanity.

    Step 3: Make a decision to turn your will, your ski tips, and your life over to the care of Jah as you understand Him.

    Step 4: Make a searching and fearless moral inventory of yourself and your gear closet.

    Step 5: Admit to Jah, to yourself, and to another Maggot the exact nature of your wrongs.

    Step 6: Be entirely ready to have Jah remove all these defects of character.

    Step 7: Humbly ask Jah to remove your shortcomings and your short skis.

    Step 8: Make a list of all Maggots you have harmed or wish to meet, and become willing to make amends to them all.

    Step 9: Make direct amends to such Maggots wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or diminish their stoke.

    Step 10: Continue to take personal inventory, and when you are a JONG, promptly admit it.

    Step 11: Seek through Powder and Medication to improve your conscious contact with Jah, as you understand Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for you and the Powder to carry that out.

    Step 12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, you are to carry this message to other Alpentalics, even if they have not yet come to embrace their Alpentalism, and to practice these principles in all your affairs.

    A bake sale will be held at the event, with proceeds benefiting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Research Fund.

    Art, artifacts, widgets, gear, and of course baked goods are encouraged for donation to the sale.

    Come ski with your friends, all you lurking motherfuckers!

    Ski-offs are encouraged and handled as such: the winner provides beer. I am already making arrangements for kegs .

    Walking down Babylon lane
    trying to live my life in Peace
    two young men call me not their Brother
    They try to make I feel ashamed

    But I love I Jah yeah, he tell me not to be that way
    Oh I love I Jah, I gotta keep my PMA

    My lovely sister, judge me by my clothes yeah
    Only to learn her mistake, not everyone's alike
    We're not all uptight
    no fuss, no fight

    Cool that way
    Cool that way


    I love I Jah
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Lord knows I won't have anything better to do over Valentine's Day. Hopefully this year I won't realize I forgot my helmet, goggles and gloves as I drive past exit 48.

    Powderskirts are optional but the house rules prohibit retribution for taking a glance up said skirt.

    Whining about any matter relating to powderskirts, including the presence of Maritime Pow beyond the boundary of the skirt, shall provide immediate grounds for a ski-off.

    Aw, you might find the gal of your dreams by then, bro.

    Wait, no. NOBODY has anything better to do over Valentine's day. If your gal is worth her salt, she'll come to the party, too.

    Folks of all shapes and sizes and genders, please feel welcome. Skiing isn't even mandatory. Gimps and wimps, come out, too... you could have a blast just by holding down a chair between mob laps.

    Will KQ come out??

    Very happily rolling solo for the time being.


    And more importantly, bold font added for emphasis.

    Oh, I guess. Even with the dark star gravitation of Mount Dweebus and it's Interstellar Umbrellar, I might be able to escape my orbit to hang with the k00ks.
