Snowbird ski patroller Alex Taran is working hard to train folks in South America (Chile mostly) on how to search and rescue others that are taken out by an avalanche. Here is the scoop on South American Beacon Project Fundraiser that is going on tomorrow 7/10 in Big Cottonwood at the Storm Mountain Picnic Area. This will be a very good time!
Words: Alex Taran
The date is July 10th from 1:30-7:30 pm Location is at the StormMountain Amphitheater in Big Cottonwood. We are asking a 10$ donation for the show to support the project (if you donate less, cool ,or want to donate more, rad)..
4 Local bands/performers are playing acoustically in your National Forest:
Fat Apollo, Mike Cottle, Jeremiah Maxey, and Salt City Slam
Also we are having a silent auction. we have been gracious enough to receive donated goods and services from gear (Levitation Project, Smith Optics, Panda Poles, and more), to grills, to massages, to local art (Artist Travis Knight), and much more.And yes we are roasting a pig and possibly some lamb, (for the veggie eating crowd out there there will be vegetables for you)
Technical details: Parking spots in the amphitheater are reserved for volunteers and bands. Parking on highway is limited. Please carpool! We will be running a shuttle from the Big Cottonwood park and ride, thanks to American Fuel Vehicles (please throw the driver a tip, still cheaper than the gas you’d pay to drive yourself). And there is plenty of bike parking at the event!
No Dogs (unfortunatly, but we are in the watershed)
No Swimming (once again watershed)
Respect watershed regulations please!
Come out into the mountains (your national forest)
Come listen to some awesome local bands play acoustically
Come eat roasted pig (and other roasted food)
BYOB (this is not the event to get your 16 year old nephew drunk at)
Bring your kids
Invite your friends
Support a great project to give back to a great mountain community!
See you there!
