When asked to come to CO for the award ceremony for the Powdershots Photo Contest, I told them I couldn't take off work. I immediately called SnowDude to tell him they called. He said "Let's go!". He's been working so much, I was surprised he wanted to go. Them my boss called and asked if I found a phone number he had asked for. Oops! Got sidetracked with the phone calls, and told him. He told me to "Go for it!" I told him it was on Friday, and he said to "GO!". What a great boss!! I got someone to cover for me Fri and Mon. I made some calls to Mammoth and found someone coming our way to bring our snowboarding gear from our condo. We made travel arrangements, and had a wonderful 4 days in CO!!!
