Hi everyone,
I've been a bit absent from this community this winter. I could make a variety 
of excuses...poor internet connection; no time for internet between work, 
ride, sleep, eat; hard to type with a cast (broken my wrist in January but 
haven't missed a day on the hill). I'm popping in now to ask for your support. 
I'm hoping you will help promote an event I'm helping to organize at Smuggs. 
It's a benefit for Haiti, a ski and ride a-thon on March 28th. I'm pasting the 
registration form below. It contains all the details. Could you please pass it 
on? Maybe I'll see some of you on the 28th as participants! Thanks for helping 
to spread the word.

Haiti Benefit

Smugglers’ Notch Resort Distance Challenge

Ski and Ride A-Thon 

Registration Form


The Smugglers’ Notch Distance Challenge is a fundraiser in which participants 
collect pledges based on the number of miles they will ski or ride on a given 
day.  Our hope and goal is to inspire members of our Vermont ski and ride 
community to help raise money for victims of the January 12, 2010 earthquake 
in Haiti. As members of the human family, we feel compelled to do whatever 
we can to help our far-away brothers and sisters. On Sunday, March 28th, 
2010, skiers and riders will gather at Smugglers’ Notch to ski and ride miles of 
awesome terrain to raise money for various charities.  


Participants will wear Flaik GPS units that will record total miles (up and down) 
traveled during the event. Later in the evening, participants will be able to log 
onto the Flaik website and see their stats for the day, including total vertical 
and maximum speed. 


Individual participants will be responsible for obtaining pledges prior to the 
Distance Challenge, collecting pledge monies after the event, and sending the 
donations to Smugglers’ Notch Resort, Snow Sports University, c/o Harley 
Johnson, Rt. 108 S, Jeffersonville, VT 05464 by April 5, 2010. Each participant 
will receive an official certificate of participation that includes his/her total 
distance. This certificate will need to be presented to businesses and 
individuals who have pledged money in order to collect the donations. 
Sponsors must write a check to the charity of their choice. No cash 
donations, please.


Participants must bring their pledge sheets to registration on the date of the 
event in order to receive the discounted lift ticket rate. 


Please RSVP your intentions of participating in the Distance Challenge to 
[log in to unmask] as soon as possible so that we can be prepared to 
accommodate everyone. Also, complete the back of this form and bring it with 
you to registration the morning of March 28.
