NSAS This Weekend! $25 for TAY
« on: 09/30/11, 08:34 AM »

Posting this for Michael:

The Northwest Snow and Avalanche Summit (NSAS) is up and running and scheduled for Nov. 13th at the Flagship REI in Seattle. Registration begins at 8:30 am. with NSAS starting at 9:00 a.m. sharp. 

We have a very impressive line-up of speakers, including "The Karl's":  Karl Birkland from the National Avalanche Center and The Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center, and Karl Klassen, Director of the Public Avalanche Bulletin for the CAA.  Photographer and newly-crowned author John Scurlock will present some of his many thousands of images, and we welcome the return of our Prodigal Son Zach Guy, back from Bozeman and Montana State University.  Zach earned his Masters on the topic of Spatial Variability while working with Karl Birkeland.

We also welcome Oyvind Henningsen as he discusses Search and Rescue logistics on a case study he was involved in.  Mike Richardson, aka "Cookie Monster", will discuss his theory on Decision Making, and Garth Ferber will attempt to explain through a discussion on the how's and why's of the NWAC telemetry, why ski report hotlines say one thing, and the NWAC telemetry says another...

This year ticket prices have been reduced due to the generosity of our sponsors.  OR is the Title Sponsor with REI, FOAC, The American Avalanche Association, Black Diamond, Brooks Range Mountaineering, BCA, Ortovox, AIARE, and Ridge Exploration.  Please support our sponsors with your purchases as they are supporting you with ticket price subsidies. 

To register online, please see the link below. Thank-you all for your past support, and I look forward to seeing you Nov. 13th at NSAS!
 
Cheers,
MJ

Marcus.

Thank-you for posting.

  I wanted to give everyone a heads-up on pricing.  If you buy your ticket before Oct. 31, you save $10.00 off of the door price, so buy your tickets early and save.  Another reason to purchase early is that capacity for NSAS has been reduced by 25% due to space constraints at REI.  BAsed on this new lower capacity,  I would not count on being able to purchase tickets at the door.

Thanks again to NSAS sponsor's for helping to reduce ticket prices!

Thanks for posting this MJ and Marcus.  Super stoked to be presenting this year.  Real nervous like, bet I will know how Otter felt last year standing up there.  Luckily with alot of friends in the community and a bunch of familiar faces I will draw security from that.

This year will be the first for the Monika Johnson Memorial Scholarship.  Details are being worked out, but the principle is this - if you are willing to spread the word on avalanche safety in the backcountry, then the scholarship is for you.  This is going to be a real community effort so think about what you can do to qualify for a scholarship.  We have received strong support from the avalanche course providers out there so there will be multiple scholarships available.  Monika touched so many lives and we want these scholarships to be a reflection of her spirit and a wonderful tool for education on backcountry safety.  More details to come when available.

Part funding for the scholarships will come from the auction and I know that NSAS are in real need of donated items from individuals and organizations in order to present some real schweet gear for auction.  Contact MJ if you are able to help.  Please!

I am currently working on an Escrow account to accept donations.  It will be administered by a third party for transparancy, and 100% of donations are to be distributed to qualified applicants.

Scholarship criteria is currently being discussed, and we hope to have a formal application available at NSAS for the Winter 2011/2012.

Rod Newcomb is coming out to NSAS!

I just recieved notice that Rod Newcomb,  original owner and operator of American Avalanche Institute based out of Jackson Hole, can present at NSAS.  He will be giving retrospective of his experience in the Avalanche Industry from 1950 until now.
If you do not know Rod, you are in for a treat.  He is the quintessential gentlemen and mountain man.  He has done everything there is to do in the avalanche industry from ski patrolling to Guiding, where he has recently retired as a Full Guide for EXum Guides in Jackson Hole.   I am very, very honored that Rod has made time to come out, and hope all attending will enjoy his presentation.

Heads up to all:  NSAS is 50% sold out, and tickets are selling at a record pace.

Sorry Michael, I keep forgetting to add this in:

For those that are interested in making direct donations to the Monika Scholarship fund, I'm going to be serving as the channel for that.  You can make a donation through my PayPal account at the email address here:

When you do so, include your full name and address so Michael can get you a receipt for the donation.  I'll pass any funds on to him when I receive them.

If you have questions or concerns, PM me or Michael and we'll work out the details.

Just a final reminder that this is your last chance to take advantage of discounted NSAS ticket prices.
Prices go up $5.00  November 1st, so purchase them before then to save some hard-earned cash.

Advance ticket sales are going well, and I want to thank-you all for your support.

In Thanks for all of the support shown by Turns All Year participants, I am releasing a block of discount tickets.  These tickets are available for the next 24 hours.  There are ten (10) and when they are gone, they are gone.  The price is $20.00.

To purchase the discounted tickets, go to the BPT site, and when you hit the purchase button, it will ask for a code.  Type in " tay " and you will qualify for the discount.

Thank-you all once again, and I wanted to be sure to give the TAY crowd a chance at the last of the available tickets.

LAST CHANCE FOR DISCOUNT NSAS TICKETS $25.00  The price at the door will be $35.00, if available.  NSAS is a great opportunity for a preseason 'safety refresher" that is held at a convenient location for a reasonable price.  Please take advantage of this special discount opportunity to assure your place at the seminar. 

Mark Moore at NWAC has assured me that skiing will SUCK this Sunday, so buy your tickets now and I will see you there!

Thank-you
MJ

NSAS was the place to be today. Great turnout and great topics. I got a lot out of the talks and I enjoyed seeing many old and new faces. Big thanks to Michael Jackson, the sponsors, and the volunteers.

Thanks to MJ, the volunteers, the speakers, and all the sponsors for planning, supporting, and implementing such a great day! MJ, you are really a class act.

It was really fun to meet Marcus, RonJ, Lowell, Amar, Gerry, Oyvind, GFerber, and Stimbuck. An interesting bunch.

Wow,

Thank-you all for your support and kind words.

NSAS is becoming what I had hoped it would be: a chance for the communty to get together and share some amazing presentations in a relaxed atmospher. ( It doesn't hurt to have free beer either!)
 
I can't thank the speaker's and sponsor's enough for their support and participation.  I look forward to NSAS 2012 and would like to hear from folks that might be interested in presenting, or know of someone that might be.  The planning never stops!

Cheers,

yeah - thanks Michael and all involved for putting this on! Very informative and great to put so many faces(in 3-D!) to names. Totally enjoyed meeting everybody. Salmon and beer at the end was definitely a nice finishing touch...

also - here's a small addition to Oyvinds excellent presentation -

...a more benign use of the Everett SAR helicopter

Class event, Michael,

Accolades go out to:
-Michael Jackson for all the planning and behind-the-scenes activities that are required to organize such an event,
-Steve Christy for his great job as MC for the event,
-The presenters for their work, preparation, presentation execution and in some cases long travel,
-For the volunteers for their contribution in having the event come together so seamlessly,
-The sponsors for the work, time and resources to help make the event affordable for all, and,
-Especially for the participants for sitting in one place a whole day to cause this event to become a reality.

I also especially want to thank the presenters for the new insights I have gleaned from them from the new, and some cases hard developed, information they imparted.   

It was also very enjoyable for me to see so many of our fellow backcountry sisters and brothers in one place; to see all familiar faces; to meet new ones, and to look forward to meeting the ones I have yet to meet.

Thanks to all.
