    Iregardless is not a word.

    Looks like merriam-webster says it is a word. But I also would have guessed it wasn't.

    That is true, but close enough.

    Haystack has 1 CTEC triple, 1 Poma triple, and 2 Sky-Trac quads in addition to the bubble six-pack.  They also have a large fan gun fleet.

    The triples are too old to move. The quads are short. The residual value of all that equipement is peanuts when you have a 30 million dollar clubhouse that can't move. Haystack mountain will operate as a private club. 
    The triples are not "too old to move" and are in great shape. They would sell.

    The Quads would also sell.
    Youre missing the point
    Your point was not lost, but iregardless of their potential value as part of the total assets on property the lifts will sell.
    Iregardless is not a word. The lifts will not be sold. The entire package is for sale at a price that Mr. Barnes wants. He still holds the cards. 
    At this point, no one will buy that place unless the members team togther and do it themselves. It is a complete and utter mess.

    It actually does appear in the dictionary, but it's spelled wrong here, there are two r's
    Not sure why any of that matters though, everyone knew what he meant.

    I think it's a generational thing.  Back when dinosaurs walked the earth we were taught to avoid what was then considered improper usage, including quasi-words such as "irregardless"  or "firstly" and pompous diction such as "each and every" or goofy expressions such as "died suddenly" or "slightly pregnant" and the ubiquitous "new and improved."   Modification of an absolute was also a no-no. 

    My Barnhart dictionary printed in 1961 lists irregardless "not generally accepted usage"

    But as implied out above, language continuously evolves, and expressions/words that sounded totally goofy at one time have become commonplace today.

    Improper use's of apostrohpe's is also being added to the list of accepted practice's.

    The big bad wolf probably didn't mind either way.

    There have been many perfectly cromulent additions to the English language.

    As Rick points out, in school we were taught not to use irregardless.  This was/is due to there being no real difference in the meaning of regardless vs. irregardless.

    At least it's not dangerous like flammable and inflammable...

    Nothing to worry about, it says it's inflammable.

    Regardless of one's feeling on word validity and origin, I think we can all agree that this thread has undergone a hijacking in the last day!! :D

    Drove by the Club this morning and there was some action it seemed, a contractor van pulling out and a few cars turning in. Place is still covered top to bottom, looks prime for hiking.

    Just reading around on Facebook and rumors I had been hearing in the area, sounds like at least a handful of now former employees still have bounced paychecks from the Club from the beginning of March. That is pathetic. It is no longer "can they make it?" No, now it is "so how many people got hurt in this and where is the bottom of the hole?"

    That sucks-- stiffing the help is not a good way to end.

    Brattleboro Reformer has said on their Facebook that a tax sale of the Hermitage is scheduled for early June. Also put the number of people laid off earlier this year at 100 people.

    Drove by this afternoon, place looks sweet right now. There's a solid 6-8 inches of fresh snow from the past four days on top of a deep base. They could still easily be 100% open this weekend. I'm actually surprised that the lower mountain trails have retained their edge to edge cover. Some people are skinning multiple trails and looked like some snowmobiles had fun as well.

    Berkshire is paying off about 700k of the taxes soon so that tax sale probably not gonna happen.  No way the bank allows smaller tax debts to wipe out their entire $17mm position...typical 1st lien protection behavior.  That's why payroll and vendors aught to get paid...at least those associated with the bank's collateral package.

    As a member friend on FB pointed out to another FB friend of mine, who is a year round (short of Spring mud season before Golf Course pre opening prep starts) employee, pointed out, *if* Jim Barnes chooses to decline all offers for a buyout and full bankruptcy ensues, the number of lawsuits he's potential facing, goes up by about 600, as all the current members could class action suit him for breach of contract!!!!

    And as my friends out it, his arrogance/ego(he was even apparently this past week spotted driving around the Valley in his vintage Bentley convertible, with the top down) has to at some point, has to be squashed with reality!!!!!

    So who's really in the mix to buy it? Are the members organized? Do we really think a Vail or Alterra will buy it?
