    I can wait on ScottSki63 for a bit as well, haven't heard from him.

    We now have over $3600 in the StokeDreams skilorship fund, so each grantee will get at least $1200. If folks keep donating and it rises another $1200, we could fill a family room at Mtn-lodge in Rueras.

    This basically means each grantee will need to cover round trip airfare to Zurich and the donations will cover the rest including trains transfers, food and lodging in Rueras (you'll probably have to share a room), lift tickets (average $65/day, less if one gets the half price card for the SkiArena, more on that later). A cell phone with carrier in Yurp is key, as will be avie gear and a transformer plug for phone charging on the Swiss outlets (they cost $10 here).

    I'll iterate on details in the EuroBBI2022 thread should more questions arise.

    Kudos to the old Aspen hippies.
    It would be cool if we're able to fill a family room. I'd also support passing the hat around one more time to try to defray some of the flight costs for these guys.
    Everybody's gotta have parkas. I'm talking custom parkas. Two words: "client development." They see all of you out there cutting the powder in your matching Schweikart & Cokely parkas, you'll make an impression. You will thank me later.

    I'll split the fund 3 ways if we're less than $4600.

    After that, we can consider a 4th. But I want to be aware of folks financial situations and not stress people too much.

    Right now we're at $3,644 but donations have slowed. The spirit of BBI is bringing in a little more, but nothing confirmed yet.

    I need to do this soon so people can make flight reservations.
    The door absolutely closes on Jan 17, according to the gofundme rules.

    I'd like to have this all allocated and figured out by Nov. 17 at the very latest.

    Share the Love and Madness: Send Some K00ks to Yurp

    Late to the party but I threw in a few bucks. Djongo and SVS are both good dudes and while I haven't met RA, anyone that builds trail is worth a vote in my book.

    Thanks to ML for posting this up in ecrc because I had not seen it yet. Hats of Buster!

    Stoked for anyone that can go or gets to go!

    Being way late to the party and seeing its an ec thing at the moment, I'm voting Babybear because she rocks! She's been supporting a deadbeat (jk) ski bum who rips for how long now!? Seriously though, who's better than her in here?

    It would be so sweet if ScottSki63 would read his PMs or send me an e-pigeon of his own devising.

    I will not try to figure out shortened or cryptic aliaii.
    If there's a recommendation, please use the exact alias.

    Djongo is on board, SVS has deferred.
    Both Djongo and raisingarizona13 are in the queue to go.

    We just need 1 more until the fund crests 4600, then we can add another.

    There's a tie in votes for ScottSki63 and mtnbiker/boarder.
    Due to extenuating circumstances, I'll break the tie and cast a vote for ScottSki63 due to his loss of the Vail pass and other circumstances.

    So the grantees are raisingarizona13, Djongo Unchained and ScottSki63.

    Right now, the fund is at $3800. Kudos to all you k00ks who shared some love and madness.

    Going forward, if there's less than $4600 in the fund on Nov. 17. the sum will be split into equal parts and each part sent to a grantee.
    If there's more than $4600 on November 17, mtnbiker/boarder will become a grantee and the fund will be split into 4 equal parts.

    GoFundMe is not flexible when it comes to dispensing the funds, so I'll be sending cashiers checks to each of the grantees on Nov. 18. So I'll need your legal names and secure mailing addresses.

    Each of the current grantees is encouraged to start making reservations for both flights to Zurich and hotel https://www.mt-lodge.com/ .

    Bear in mind that, depending on your departure, you may need to get a hotel room near the airport the night before your flight. I've used movenpick zurich airport https://all.accor.com/hotel/B4H3/ind...ce=google+Maps before.

    I'll be at mt-lodge March 9-14 and in nearby Klosters March 6-9.
