    This might be the wrong time of year to post this in terms of traffic on the site, but I wanted to bounce an idea off of the group.

    There is such an awesome community here that I think it would be cool to expand that more outside of this forum. I know there are already some strong ties amongst the long haulers here, but in particular amongst the influx of newcomers, it would be interesting to get a census of who's who.

    In that vein, I was wondering if there would be interest in organizing a mini edit film festival of sorts this spring? If we can get at least 10-15 volunteers to submit edits from this upcoming season (maybe at least 2-3 minutes long, or more for the motivated), I would be happy to attempt to cut together a film. Then we could have a gathering at some local bar/brewery that would be okay with a bunch of skiers/riders crashing the joint and showing their film off on a tv/projector. We could have some prizes (cash or swag) for the best edit, second best, best performance, best writing, costume design, etc. In my mind, it would be a cool way to feature some of the excellent riders there are, the terrain, and also just people enjoying themselves in the panhandle area. Thoughts? If there is enough interest/momentum, would be happy to move forward with trying to sketch something officially out.

  2. I am so game for this... If I can't win at being the best rider, I can damn sure win at the costume design :cool:

  3. I'd be down.

    Funny this popped up, since I'm actually just finishing an edit from a Spring trip. Maybe I'll post it up in here so you guys can point & laugh at my elementary editing skills. Is there a last place / worst edit prize..? Asking for a friend.

    I would be drawing from my years of childhood experience editing Star Wars home movies, so hopefully I could create something with less wipe cuts. I think the bar would be set at anything more than a powerpoint is good.
