This one goes out to Rick B.

A few shares of American Ski Company stock

That must be old. That has to be when they were at their "peak".

Great pic as usual WoodCore,surprised Rick didn't comment on it.The one and only time I was in that place was a basketball rewards dinner back in the leisure suit(anybody remember those)days of '76.It was a huge monstrosity of a hotel built in anticipation of gambling(as Rick so thouroughly explained on his lost NJ report on NELSAP)The place gave you a real eerie feeling.(no bunnies running around that night)Can't believe it's been over 30 years!

Hey! Sorry I missed this one, I was driving through the rain to New Hampshire when you posted this. Wow...cool.

My first and only visit to the Playboy Club I was 15, went to a boxing exhibition mid 70s. Got a comp ticket from the PR Director, great guy named Jack Prather. I wore a sportcoat, sat ringside, front row. It was bizarre...bunnies and blood everywhere. I met Muhammad Ali that night, also Chuck Wepner, who was partly inspiration for the first Rocky movie. They weren't boxing, just there for appearance money. I felt like the king of the world. I even touched a sacred bunny tail, which was supposedly some sort of criminal offense (hey, I was 15 and a real dork) Went with a bunch of old timers who smoked cigars like fiends. What a great night.

Thanks Woodcore for bringing back the memories!!

You got to meet Cassius Clay,the"Greatest",in his prime?Must have been quite a thrill,Rick.Now we have to know which was better,touchin' the bunny tail or riding with the "ski goddess" on Cloud Nine?
