Description:

The basic idea is we check all the skins for all the skis, if they suck we fix em. We will start with the tall rack. Time and more details TBA. Maybe people can bring useful repair equipment? Celebrate at Koerner pub after :)

I think our ideal group size is ten, but we can be quite flexible. This will be a great oppurtunity to learn new ski repair skills. 

The start time is quite flexible, just let me know what time you are coming. I don't imagine us staying past 10pm. Feel free to text me at the time to see if we still need help.

Somee thoughts:

Mainly, I think we will do a lot of re-gluing. Does anyone have experience with this? Does it work well? What are the tips and tricks? Is it amenable to an assembly line? I imagein at least a quarter of the skis need to be reglued (about 20 skis). From what I understand you have to remove the old glue, then apply new glue and somewhere in the process it smells really bad. Irons are apparently also involved. I think 

Lots of the skins also have other issues. (too short, too long, bad glue, bad connecty-tail-thing) 

After we are done, we can all go celebrate at Koerners pub!
