    HELP ME: Find deserving maggots to hook up...

    Hello Maggots! It is that time of year again.

    Thanks to all the maggots who helped make our group large this year, I believe there will be several ski passes valid across the continent (the North American one at least) to award out to worthy maggots.

    Help me find maggots who are deserving of a winter of free skiing. Last season, we found two Mags who were down on their life luck who would of otherwise not been likely to get on snow. It can be the same this year? Lose a house in a wildfire? Get displaced or lose a job? Maybe you got sick and lost income. Lots of tough stories out there right now. Nominate someone or your self if you could use a little help getting on the snow.

    If we don't find enough in actual need, then the next option os to hook someone up who is a little short on funds but will give us plenty of stoke this winter on the forum. I don't know. Just figured this is an easy way for me to give little back to the place that has hooked me up so much over the yers. From cheap lodging at the base of Chair 8 in Telluride to Kusula blems to all the info in tech talk - this place delivers.

    I will know the details in a few days, but it looks like I will have three basic passes with blackout dates. I don't want to post details in this thread, but PM if you have questions. I only want to give these passes to folks who will be sure they are going to get some use. Ski near Salt Lake, Tahoe, Seattle, Colorado, New England and more...

    And finally, these passes are not eligible for upgrades, refunds or insurance. They will be free tho, so, that is nice. More to come. Post up and let me know who really needs this.

    I nominate Beaterdit and/or Scrublover for staying on the front lines as nurses. Huge kudos. (I am sure there are more, but I know them personally).

    IAS is deserving. Assuming he can get enough I can’t days as a youper

    Stealy would also be deserving as a broke college student. I bet he could couch surf from MT to UT and back and make the ultimate TR thread.

    the heath challenge he is working through certainly makes him worthy of meeting the criteria -

    in addition to his being a charter and HoF-worthy maggot.


    I second i-as' nomination of splat !

    I also think Splat is a worthy mag. He does so much for this community, and he's had a tough year. Other mags are certainly deserving (especially those that are Frontline healthcare workers), but splat could use a break here. +2 on the nomination
