1. Upcoming Events

A) Ski and Snowboard Expo.

The Expo is all weekend at the Bayside Expo Center off the JFK/UMass stop on the Red Line. Its easy to get to and it’s a lot of fun. If you need gear for the season, this is a great way to get it.

******If you want to go with the group, meet Lauren & Taylor at BU East T Station at 10am. If we change time/place we’ll message the facebook group & twitter it.

B) Clean Agganis Fundraiser after the hockey game at 9pm on Friday Dec. 11. Come out to support our team and have fun in the process. Email us at busnowtm@bu.edu if you can come.

2. Chill

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 emailbusnowtm@bu.edu and we’ll put you on the list.

3. Spring Break

If you want to go to Copper Mountain, Colorado this Spring Break with a group of kids who love to snowboard and party, then talk to your parents over Thanksgiving Break. You’ll need to pay a deposit, in the form of a plane ticket between Thanksgiving and the end of the semester. Please emailtaldredge1@gmail.com .
