Big Bear says: “I’M REAL.”


Yes, everyone, Big Bear is REAL and less than a month away.  I’ve discussed these plans with many of you, but for those of you who are not caught up, here’s what we’ve planned:

1) Three nights stay at the Lakeview Mansion in the heart of Big Bear – 1 mile from the slopes and a couple hundred yards off the main road through town.  We have the nights of the 29th, 30th, and 31st booked, with a morning/afternoon departure on the 1st of 2008.  This is the mansion:


2) The Mansion is strong.  It sleeps 16, but has room to sleep many more – the representative said upwards of 26 comfortably.  It is three stories high, with wrap around balconies overlooking the lake and the surrounding nature jam:


The interior features a jacuzzi, a pool table, a Pac Man arcade, an Asteroids arcade, a pinball machine, a big screen, a bar, a couple of fire places, a massive kitchen and a golden eagle:


3) Great location.  We’ll be a quick drive or tram ride to the mountain, so picture drunken skiing or, if you want to get SICK, drunken snowboarding (540 McTwist Bra!!  Scratchin’!!!).   Also, we’ll be walking distance from town, so a night or two at the local bars will be easy to swing.  There’s also plenty of restaurants in town, a couple of which I know are strong from experience (one is a badass haunted prime rib joint).

4) The money.  It is $100 total for the three night stay.  All expenses beyond that are up to you – but figure transportation, food, booze, and rentals, if you are skiing, or snowboarding (Jason!  Sick!!!). 

5) Who’s going?  Here’s who:


Also, we have 11 more of Team IFS scheduled to go – with a few maybes.  So, this should be very strong – and I’m sure they serve flapjacks somewhere in Big Bear.

With all of that said, the money is due Monday.  So far, MOM, Competition, Interior Design, M+T, Letters, and myself have paid (I’ll also be covering Revelry & Spirits).  Also, there are about five of you who have said that you were in, but have not yet paid the $100.  We need to work this out ASAP, otherwise, Amanda will be covering for you, which would be the opposite of strong.  If you haven’t yet paid, call me, and we’ll figure something out.  If you’d like to mail a check to Amanda, here’s the address:

Amanda Farrell
3424 Lambeth St.
Los Angeles, CA 90027

For everyone else who hasn’t yet joined in on these plans, call me and let me know if you’re interested.  This will make for a very strong New Year’s Eve celebration…Spray Jam in the snow.

    Count me in for Big Bear.. I don’t give $50,000 per year to SC yet, so I didn’t get student Rose Bowl seats from the lottery. Buncher, are we gonna find a place to watch it up there? Cause I would imagine we will have to be out of the place by a decent hour on the 1st…

    not that you should need any extra motivation to go on this trip, but the fact that JOHN CONVERSE and JOSH STRAUSS will both be there should seal the deal.

    I’ll know if I have Rose Bowl tickets on the 14th so my new years depends on that.. Even if I do get them, I’m contemplating selling them to make a few extra bucks for Big Bear.. we’ll see what happens

    this post has been up for almost three days now and not a single comment. Let’s get on this.
    For those who are attending, please post what day and time you hope to start heading to big bear so we can start organizing rides and such. Just remember that if you ride with Defense, keep in mind the music you will be subjected to.
