PATTI ROSENTHAL, Cycling Account Manager, Durango, CO. Another great backcountry trip up in the San Juan Mountains. This time to the Wolf Creek area to a spot called Lobo Lookout. Wolf Creek had just gotten 12 inches of fresh powpow. Well over a 1,000 feet of climbing up with skins on our skis but the fresh powder runs down was well worth it. Skiing with great friends on a sunny blue bird day!
JULIUS DAGOT and the [Burnaby office Social Committee |
http://intractive.active.com/Teams/social_committee.html] organized Saturdays Snow Dayinvolving 40 employees, family, and friends. The participants skied, snowboarded, and snowtubed at Cypress Mountain. The event was a huge success, and the participants enjoyed a day of fun with the snow, in true Canadian style.
ADNAN ZAIDI played the Al Mills Memorial Championships, a USTA sanctioned tournament, in the Mens 35 Singles. I played well but ended up losing to the #1 seed in the finals. Here is a link to the tournaments home page (no results have been updated yet):
STEPHEN MATSUBA (Foundations) took part in the 2nd Annual British Columbia Kendo Federation Kendo Tournament as a member of the Vancouver Kendo Club. The competition hosted participants from B.C. as well as a team from Washington State. I competed in the individual shodan (1st black belt) division and was a member of the Vancouver Kendo Clubs B Team. While our team did not make it into the medal round, our clubs A Team came in second.
NICO REIS, Active International, Munich, Germany, went to see the Harlem Globetrotters on the World tour in Germany! Now clearly this is one of the Basketball teams, every fan or Player should see at least once in their life. Amazing ball handling, ridiculous dunks, alley oops, etc. but foremost: Great entertainment. Needless to say they won their game against the Washington Generals (whom the Globetrotters defeated in the past 50 years, by the way).
JIM GARFIELD (AMG) was a victim of the State of California budget woes. He hit a major pothole on PCH in Malibu while riding up to Ventura. This time it was really only the bike that broke and not his shoulder. He also discovered that although very cool, the Active riding kit was not road rash resistant. Hey Arnold how about throwing some $ towards road repair!!!!
TOBY GUILLETTE ran 26 miles on the Noble Canyon trail on Saturday morning and then joined up with AIREY BARINGER and JESSE HAMMOND on Sunday for a mellow bike ride through OB, Point Loma, Harbor Island and Little Italy.
