Think of this as the baby of Mammoth Reading Days and Cesar Chavez...hypothetically at least. You guys made the December trip so popular that SKEEZE is returning the favor and reincarnating it for round two.

There are a few minor changes although we've designed the trip with Reading Days' heart and soul in mind. The trip will be slightly smaller (we'll only have the big house at Convict Lake). We've also redesigned sign-ups via a raffle in hopes of avoid the heartache of last semester.

We'll leave Thursday (3/26) as people are getting out of classes and drivers are ready. We'll spend Thursday and Friday nights at the same house, ski Friday and Saturday (3/28) and return Saturday night should you have work for Sunday.

HOW TO SECURE YOUR SPOT ON THE TRIP: FIRST, sign-up here. Future updates will be sent via e-mail and for such a big trip it's essential that we have everyone e-mail addresses in a central place. SECOND show up at Walker Lounge at 1 PM on Sunday, March 8 for the RAFFLE. SHOW UP ON TIME, IF NOT EARLY. To be assigned a raffle number you must: (1) have already signed up here, and (2) have your money (TBD, likely $125-$150) NO EXCEPTIONS. LIABILITY FORMS ARE NO LONGER NECESSARY.

We will raffle off around 20 (final number TBD) double slots for the trip. Each raffle winner will be able to pull a friend onto the trip, ASSUMING that friend's money is present at the raffle. IF YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO MAKE IT TO THE RAFFLE: e-mail me at least day ahead of time and have a friend present with your money. Once the raffle is complete, we'll compile waitlists of drivers and non-drivers and randomly pull from those as necessary.

We can not gaurentee refunds for individuals that drop with less than a week remaining until the trip. We will do our best to fill your spot off of our waitlists, but do keep this in mind.

Reminder: Signing up here DOES NOT guarantee you a spot on the trip! You must sign up here and then be present at the raffle with your money--NO EXCEPTIONS. If you can't make it, e-mail us ahead of time and have a friend present with your stuff.

Tell your friends, enemies, and future lovers and don't forget to sign-up below. See you on March 8th for THE RAFFLE. More updates via e-mail as we get closer. Good luck and feel free to contact us with questions.

I understand that as a Participant in the Activity I could sustain serious personal injuries, illness, property damage, or even death as a consequence of not only Pomona's actions or inactions, but also the actions, inactions, negligence or fault of others, and that there may be other risks not known to me or not reasonably foreseeable at this time. I further understand and agree that any injury, illness, property damage, disability, or death that I may sustain by any means is my sole responsibility, except for those occurrences due to Pomona's gross negligence or intentional misconduct.

RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY: I, on behalf of myself, my personal representatives, heirs, executors, administrators, agents, and assigns, HEREBY RELEASE, WAIVE, DISCHARGE, AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE The Claremont Colleges (Pomona College, Harvey-Mudd College, Claremont McKenna College, Scripps College, Pitzer College, Claremont Graduate University, and the Keck Graduate Institute), its governing board, directors, officers, employees, agents, volunteers, and any students (hereinafter referred to as "Releasees") for any and all liability, including any and all claims, demands, causes of action (known or unknown), suits, or judgments of any and every kind (including attorneys' fees), arising from any injury, property damage or death that I may suffer as a result of my participation in the Activity, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE INJURY, DAMAGE OR DEATH IS CAUSED BY THE RELEASEES, UNLESS THE INJURY DAMAGE OR DEATH IS CAUSED BY THE RELEASEES' GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE INJURY DAMAGE OR DEATH OCCURS WHILE IN, ON, UPON, OR IN TRANSIT TO OR FROM THE PREMISES WHERE THE ACTIVITY, OR ANY ADJUNCT TO THE ACTIVITY, OCCURS OR IS BEING CONDUCTED.
