Weekend Idea Round-Up

The first order of business on this snowy Friday is to announce the winner for the coveted Crystal Mountain 2010-2011 Ski Pass. For some, this could be your redemption after not winning the even more sought after $355 million lottery (The WMTA staff was devastated. We refer to our monthly lottery pool as our retirement fund, which would particularly nice for Kelly and I since we're both slaves to the man for another 38 or more years).

Congratulations to downhill addict Stiner! 
Please send e-mail your contact information to, and we'll drop your season's pass in the mail. 

Meanwhile, we're very excited about our new giveaway number jar. Speaking of giveaways...
Dear Nokdeez,

You won an awesome prize. Many, many would like to swipe the Chateau Chantal wine tasting for six from you. Please send me an e-mail ( by Wednesday, January 12 so we don't have to give it to somebody else.

Shannon & Kelly
Now, our second order of business is to tell you about all the wonderful West Michigan events happening this weekend. Perhaps you will spend the first full weekend of 2011 working on your New Year's Resolution. If that is the case and your resolution is fitness-related, a fabulous West Michigan winter sport is perfect, especially since we just got several fresh inches of snow with more in the forecast. I think I'm going to spend my weekend out on the cross-country ski trails. Indeed.

If you have a family that is longing for the warm summer days spent frolicking in the waves, you might want to give an indoor waterpark a go. Boyne Mountain’s Avalanche Bay, for example, is the largest indoor waterpark in Michigan and voted #1 by the Detroit News.

As always, here's the line up for you. Have an amazing weekend, West Michigan!

High five,


Friday & Saturday
