HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!
SILVIO FRISON in the SD office is on Florianopolis Island in Santa Catarina, Brazil. He reports that there are perfect waves in unusual cold water but he is riding them like a King.
EDNA CASTANEDA (Account Manager-Account Management & Operations, Active-NYC) is happy to report on the Active NYC holiday bowling party. We all had a GREAT day spending quality time with one another and of course being extremely competitive when it came to the lanes. The party was highlighted by Edna and Craig Culhane both getting turkeys (3 strikes in a row for the bowling newbies), good ol’ fashion east coast trash talking and of course sitting next to the 2 guys from Gossip Girls J We wish everyone at Active a fantastic holiday season and all the best for 2009!!

ANDY GEORGE, Senior Tech Director and daughter AVA camped in high winds and cold nights last weekend with YMCA Adventure Guides in Aqua Caliente (near Anza-Borrego Desert east of San Diego). While majority of the 65 campers bailed Saturday, little Ava and Andy had one of the only tents standing the second night that became the kitchen and dining room safe from the wind. An off road trip to the Arroyo Tapiado Mud Caves made for awesome adventure hiking with headlamps though long dark hidden caves formed from mud flows!
STEVE MAZZA winter solstice mountain bike adventure on a perfect San Diego day. While climbing up Fortuna Mountain just before sunset I ran into a good size coyote, and on the technical descent endo-ed off my bike. That hurt!
