BUST things you should know


Friday December 11, 2009 9pm Agganis Arena

We’re cleaning up Agganis after the hockey game to raise money for the team so that we can have more snowboarding, more events, and more fun! It’s essential that you’re all there!

Our first trip is Jan. 17th and sign-ups for the trip are this Wednesday. Bring your ten dollars to the meeting next week. As you all know, Stratton hasn’t opened yet because of inclement weather this past week.

At Wednesday’s meeting we’re also going to be talking about Spring Break and the Sunday River trip. Please see the previous email to get the low down. Remember to email taldredge1@gmail.com if you are interested!

If you want to ride over break at either Stratton, Okemo, or Sunapee, then you need to go to the Registrar’s office before you leave for Christmas break.  The office is located on the second floor of 881 Commonwealth Ave.  Ask for a registrar’s letter that verifies that you are a full time registered college student.  Then you need to bring this letter with you along with your BU ID to the mountain the day that you go in order to pick up your pass.  BUT! If you’re planning on picking up your pass at a mountain other than Stratton, i.e. you’re planning on going Sunapee or Okemo first, you need to email us back and tell us, so that we can contact Stratton and have them notify the other mountain.

LipDub Event! It’s a type of a video, where it’s a singular shot that follows students who lipsync a song throughout the campus.  We are filming this friday from 1-4pm as we will need to do several run throughs and make sure everyone is coordinating.  We want support from every group on campus, and are looking for a solid 10+ people from the snowboard team to attend and wear their gear and just have a good time.  Here are 2 examples of what we are trying to do.  Our song is a mashup of Jackson 5’s ABC and I want you back.

ThirtyTwo proforms are in! We’re going to do it similar to the way we do skullcandy: by request. We’ll have the cards at the meetings because they are a physical thing we need to give you. We also suggest that you buddy up so you can get multiple items per card.


Chill is a six-week, learn-to-snowboard program for underserved inner-city youth.  The youth we work with come from a variety of backgrounds, including foster care or group home situations, low-income public schools, juvenile justice systems, and drug rehab programs to name a few.  Many of these youth lack positive role models, consistency of any sort, or the availability of positive extra-circular activities. As a volunteer you can help to change all of this.

On-Snow Volunteer:

We ask that volunteers choose one day of the week that works best for them and attend Chill on that same day of the week at least three times throughout the six-week program. This arrangement creates consistency for the youth because the volunteers work with the same group every time.  The days this year are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  It starts the 19th and goes on for 6 weeks from there including a possible make up day(s) at the end.

We’ll leave around 4pm from campus and go to Wachusett. You help out the kids and then you ride until the mountain closes (around 11p). If you want to participate in Chill with BUST, please email busnowtm@bu.edu and we’ll put you on the list.

Loving the view this morning,

Katie Ashley Taylor Warren Lauren Geoff and Alexa
Boston University Snowboard Team (BUST)
