    Idea: annual pot for mag-funded gear sponsorship

    (Not sure this goes in gearswap but starting it here...)

    Ok mags...so seeing the outpouring of donations for Par made me think we could probably do something like that more regularly. It's not a big deal to wrangle, and I'm guessing everyone who donated could probably do that once a year without really feeling it.

    What do you guys think of starting something we do annually, where mags chip in for gear setups for two deserving mags?

    We could focus it a few different ways...eg:

    -Junior/Senior...one setup for someone young who needs it, one for someone 'retirement age' who keeps their ski life going but doesn't have a lot of extra funds...

    -The 'almost spancered striver'....older groms who are moving toward competition but aren't getting skis kicked down yet. GSA sticker on helmet being the only requirement.

    -The 'best bringer of dirtbag stoke'...the guy living in his car to get as many ski days as he can, using beat gear.


    I think it could be cool. Obviously gear is always secondary to experiences in this world but it does make a difference, and getting kicked-down new gear is a nice form of good karma for folks who stretch their funds thin to keep skiing in their life.


    What do you guys think?


    We could maybe pressure one of our fellow mags who also happens to make fairly decent skis to participate, and lower the cost of entry a bit for this (cough-Melee-cough...)?

    I'm in. What you organised for Par was pretty cool, so you are definitely getting some beers if you are visit the canadian rockies.

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    Ditto. And both the actually cause and my mistaken (or wishful) interpretation of it are great causes.

    ^^^this is true. We'll figure it out. Might be a fun way to keep the summers from degrading into stupid bickering?

    and forgive me but can someone point me in the direction of the thread that inspired this - sounds like required reading that I missed because I'm too busy arguing elsewhere on TGR over stuff that doesn't matter
