And just when you thought you had made the best ski trip ever to Jackson Hole along comes Alyeska...

21 Mashers made the long trek to Alaska and returned on the Red Eye Saturday night from Anchorage, arriving Sunday March 25th in Tri-Cities and other nearby destinations.

The long trip was well worth it. A spectacular experience was had by all. Skiing was the crown jewel, with powder and packed powder and fresh snow for 5 days straight. The Alaskan protocol was to start the lifts at 10:30 AM and run until 5:30PM, to correlate with the best light this time of the year. (A most civilized practice, which fits well with the Alyeska nightlife experience).

In addition to the skiing, there were side trips to shopping places for souvenirs and other essentials, great dining opportunities and several interesting side trips. There was a flight to Denali, a Seward boat cruise, looking for whales and sea life, dogsledding and snowmobiling, where glacial ice was found to be the preferred coolant for refreshing adult beverages and all this was topped off by a great send off party.

CSC Spring Convention

Recently the Crescent Ski Council once again convened at the Kingston Plantation resort for a great weekend of socialization and enjoyment of the sun-kissed beaches. It was quite a change of scenery for many of us who last met in the rugged mountains of Alyeska, Alaska. The weather was definitely beach-user friendly with many of us showing off our burns acquired by our snow skier complexions. Besides relaxing at poolside or bubbling in the hot tubs, festivities abounded with the Thursday night reception, trade show, DJ Dance party, Beach Olympics, and the ultimate "Walk like an Egyptian" theme party. On the following page, enjoy the pictures with plenty of smiles. For those who couldn't join us, I'd like to encourage attendance next year for the much needed stress relief of daily life.

Here's some Beach Trivia: (as ranked by Florida International University). Best "Walking Beach"—Gay Head, Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. Best "Wild Beach"—Jasper Beach, Maine. Best "Romantic" Beach—East Hampton, New York. Best Beach with "Nightlife"—East Hampton Main Beach, Long Island, New York. The 2006 Best Beach award—Fleming Beach Park, Maui, Hawaii. Now if you're looking for a little more excitement, according to "The Travel Channel" the Best Nude Beach—Montalivet, France. Or, for that party animal, head to Best Spring Break—Panama City, Florida. In addition, for those who just want to release the child within, The Best North American Sandcastle contest Beach—Myrtle Beach!

Captain for a Day

What a wonderful day regardless of the much needed rain that decided to fall, and of course clear away as the event concluded. It was my first experience with the "Dawn of Hope" boat excursion, and what a heart-warming fulfilling day. For those unknowing of the event, the Mogul mashers gather together with their pontoon boats to allow the Dawn of Hope participants who are mentally/physically challenged to become "Captain for a day" as they negotiate the boats on Boone lake. Afterward we enjoy lunch together at lakeside. According to the Hope counselors, it's an event they all have embraced and truly look forward to every year. From what I've heard, it's the only time they've ever seen one participant ever smile....This year Channel 11 came to film us with a good showing on the news. (Unfortunately I was napping at the time). Thanks to Pat Potter for setting that up! Also Thanks to Ed, Cindy, and Alex Dance for the great "Captain for a Day" hats! So for those of you who truly want to bring joy to others, this is an outstanding event and don't miss it next year! ~ Barb Lang

I want to thank everyone who contributed to Captain For A Day. Your time, boats, and contribution to the gift bags is much appreciated. We had a great time even though is rained. I hope everyone went home humbled after this experience. Again thank you for all your help, it could not have take place without you. See you next year. ~ Betsy Pearce

Fall Beach Trip—Cancun

On September 27th, a small group of mashers headed to Cancun for some poolside relaxation. Fortuitously, Tropical depression no. 12 shifted northward allowing us passage to the beautiful, beachside Oasis Palm Beach Resort and Spa. We all enjoyed the great weather, food, and poolside cocktails...maybe a little too much. Of course, we thought of all our friends hard at work and wishing you could join us!
