December 26th at 10 AM several hardy folks are meeting at the Central City cemetery for a pre run of the up coming Snow Run in January. This will be a very fast paced run focusing more on what to expect for the official runs more than a traditional organized run. If you have the day off and you can keep up a very lively pace you are very welcome to join the fun. BTW....10:30 we will head out from the cemetery. 146.460 and CB channel 4

Sounds like a good run....hopefully we find what we hope to see for the up coming RS run and ant others that might take place! Crooks is closed and I found out it's because the building owners tripled their rent! They sound like they will be relocating to Boulder. Dostal Alley seems to again be the only pizza place in the two city metropolis.

That was FUN! Can't wait for the official run in January, I hope we get a bunch more snow by then.

I agree with Randy here. It was fun, but lets hope for more snow.

Yankee Hill will still be the best option. Crooks is closed for pizza so I say we just go back to Beau Jo's in Idaho Springs since they have the room to accommodate all of us.

Aw man, you guys had FUN! I like that part in the middle of the first clip where UB disappears and its like, "where did he go?" Then Tree puts the hammer down. Nice.

did Mike have the instant HP machine plugged into the stereo in that vid, or did ptarmigan go BA-Baracus all-of-a-sudden?

Never really thought about it but....

I recommend securing the fire extinguisher even if it is stored in the drawer.
