Meeting Reminders 1/15

Happy Spring Semester BUSTies. The best thing about spring semester… is it’s winter, so it’s time to shlarp the gnar. Or whatever you want to call it. It was great to see so many of you out at our first meeting of the semester on Wednesday, keep it up because when you don’t come, we just look like losers. Anyway, in case you missed it or just forgot, here’s what’s going on for the week!

1. FIRST TRIP of the semester Sunday 1/19. Check the facebook group for bus departure times. When in doubt, call one of the officers! Hopefully you signed up at the meeting and paid us $10. If you didn’t, make sure you bring it on the bus with you, because we’re more aggressive than we look.

2. Competitions: Not sure when you’re competing? Not sure if you’re competing (hopefully not)? Any questions about competing, talk to Josh.

3. CHILL: There’s still time to become a CHILL volunteer! So if you want to do something good while snowboarding and you have time on Tuesdays or Wednesday afternoons for the next six weeks…you should do this! Find out more at and talk to Helen for more deets. (Or just shoot us an email). You will generally leave campus around 3:30 to drive to Wachusett Mountain and be back in boston around 10pm.

4. Team Bonding: See the facebook group for more info on all of our fun team bonding activities.

5. FACEBOOK: You’ll notice I keep telling you to check the facebook group. If you’re thinking, oh hey, I don’t know what facebook group that is, maybe you should let us know. We use that to share most of our information so shoot us an email and let us know if we still need to add you!


Season Reminders

What's up BUSTies? Things are getting real out on the snow so we want to make sure that you guys are all set to have the most stellar season. Think of this as a checklist, if you don't have all of this done - LET US KNOW! We'll make it happen.

1. Pay Dues
2. Fill out Medical Forms (Consent to Treat and Online Medical Questionnaire): link to the online form here:
3. Buy Season Pass: Make sure you get the discount code from us at the meetings. If you can't make it to the meetings, let us know!
4. Upload photo to your account on Killington's site
5. Pick up pass: If you've been notified by Medina that she has your pass, then find her. If she doesn't have your pass then it will be printed at the mountain. To be safe, go to the BU Registrar's office and get a proof of enrollment letter so that the mountain won't give you any trouble when giving you the discounted pass.
6. Shred!

Other stuff to remember so that you're super prepared for the awesome season ahead: Next Meeting - Wednesday December 4. Don't miss it, it could change your life.

Sigh of Relief aka Winter Break

What up BUST?

Just wanted to remind you that the Barnes and Nobles fundraiser is the day before classes start on Tuesday, Jan 12! Try to make it back for a couple hours to help us out. We don’t need you all day, but we’ll need people there all day.

Van Certification class is Tuesday, Jan. 19 from 5-8pm.  If you need to become certified to drive, please go to this website and sign up  THIS IS ONLY FOR NEW DRIVERS. THIS IS THE ONLY CLASS OFFERED THIS SEMESTER. Drivers are welcome to take the course on their own at their own expense through the Massachusetts Safety Council if they absolutely cannot make this class.  The link to that site is

Our first meeting is Wednesday Jan. 13 at 9pm in CAS STO B50. Be there. We'll have probably have extra sign-ups for the first trip to Stratton.

We had our first competition the other day and Katie Moore came away with the gold x2 in Slalom. Congrats!

Keepin warm,


No Meeting Dec. 16!


Here is the final email of the semester!

1) No meeting tonight, next meeting is Wed. Jan. 13

2) Sending out a reminder email with proform stuff!

3) If you are picking up your pass at Stratton or planning on going to a different mountain over break:

make sure to pick up a stamped registrar’s letter that indicates that you are a full time college student and bring that with your BU ID to the mountain to get your pass.  Right now Stratton does have the registrars list, but to expedite the process of getting a pass you should get your own registrar’s letter before you leave for break

4) Barnes and Nobles fundraiser the day before classes start on Tuesday, Jan 12! Try to make it back for a couple hours to help us out. We don’t need you all day, but we’ll need people there all day. (we'll send out info again in january, but mark your calendars)
Good luck on finals and have a great break!

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 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.
Email me Geoff if you are interested :

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 and we’ll put you on the list.

Loving the view this morning,
