Once upon a time bunch of people met in Colorado and got together everynight and played this dice game (Gabi, you'll go down in hystory for this one :)) called 6bash. Put together 10 people from all over sipping tea, coffee by the fireplace occasionally shouting out RATS! or equivalents in Spanish, Romanian, Thai, Korean, Czeck or Hungarian and you've got the picture. It was loads of laughs. But the game, wow, that was something. The greatest bluffing I've ever seen. And it wasn't me. :)
Mind reading, palms sweating (now, that was me!), begging (me, again!) for mercyyyy and eventualy the king's prize: the loosers duty. The idea of the "punishment" was generaly something that shocked the outsiders. Gabi, the initiator, lost the first round ever and had to dress up(hat, gloves, boots, snowboard - the whole thing) in the middle of the summer and go down at the main YMCA lodge and ask in a heavy Eastern European accent for slopes/snow info. Only in US people will candidly try to talk you out of it...she pulled a 30 minutes show...Happy trails, everyone!

Hello, do you remember when Ulie (guy from Austria) was doing a bear?

dear Carmen and Ake, I was totally overwhelmed when I was just reading this story! Do you know why? Because just three weeks ago I was standing at the FRONT DESK (our Front Desk, well, maybe mostly Adrienne's Front Desk instead...), in Estes, telling the SAME (SSBD) story to Gary...we were thinking of you guys, talking about our time there - so were Geri and Mark, also happily married ever after, just like............us?!? wow, time flies

Hi. It is great to get some information about you. It is great that you and Ake are together. Are you married yet? I can not forget on that beautiful summer as well. The game nights were just unforgetable.
