Have fun this year new staff
Wow, what an amazing day. The first day of the Turkey Sale was
filled with smiles and eyes hungry for powder. It was great to see all the
“rookies” piecing together all their equipment for the epic season we are about
to endure. Sidewalk sales a-plenty, helpful advice from retail shops and
sunshine, what an amazing day!
It turned a little sour for me when I was following some locals
home though, they were speaking about alcohol. They were amused by the
seriousness of alcohol addiction. Speaking of another who wasn’t around, they
mocked his solution to a serious problem. His solution was putting his faith in
the all mighty GOD.
It was painful to hear their remarks like that, especially when
it concerns a person’s health and wellbeing. Why should this person they were
speaking of be tormented for overcoming such an arduous fixation?
I was close enough to say to them “end others’ suffering” but
I’m sure self-centred individuals like them didn’t understand. If I were to
meet the person they were speaking of before his transformation I would have
told him “yo dawg you drink too much”, if I were to see him today I would say
“keep up the good work”.
Helping others and giving to others is the best thing we can do
for ourselves, it may sound bombastic now but try it. In such a fun party town
with more “good times” than anyone can keep up with, it’s hard to not get
caught up in the hype.
So Whistler virgins, enjoy and love this wonderful resort, save
your money for gear upgrades, hip hop concerts and festivals. Keeping your
alcohol consumption to a minimum will guarantee you superb health and more
fresh tracks than you can imagine.
Let it snow X 3.
WASP thankful for support
On behalf on the Whistler Adaptive Sports Program I would like
to extend a huge thank you to the Whistler-Blackcomb Foundation for making us
the beneficiary of this year’s TELUS Mountain Valley Classic Golf Tournament
held on Sept. 22. The amount raised has far exceeded our expectations and is an
incredible contribution to our growing organization.
For those of you that were there I think you will join me in saying that it was a fabulous day with great weather, great golf and fantastic entertainment! I would like to send a very special thank you to Mei McCurdy and her team who worked tirelessly over many months to put together this outstanding event. We are extremely grateful to Mei for her support and hard work, to the Foundation's Board of Directors and everyone who was involved in the TELUS Mountain Valley Classic Golf Tournament.
