MSP and the Carson High Ski and Board team brings their award-winning film to the table with “CLAIM, The Greatest Ski Movie… EVER!”

This time, they’re poking fun at themselves and the industry as a whole. Highlights from the film include the introduction of 15-year-old phenom Sean Pettit, early season with Mark Abma, Matchstick’s return to Alaska over the course of four epic shoots, and a speed riding session from Chamonix, France.

Please join us at the Carson City Community Center at 7 p.m. Friday. Tickets are $7 and available at the door, or $5 with a Warren Miller ticket stub.

Every day we will be raising money or asking for you to bring in goods to help our community. Some examples of what we have going on is: Monday will be a Miracle

Minute to help the Naval Junior ROTC raise money to get gently used clothes to Iraq.

Tuesday, after school from 2-3 p.m., we will have an assembly line of peanut butter and jelly sandwich makings for the Food Bank in Carson City.

The National Honor Society is still asking for coats for kids. We’re also going to be looking for socks for Tiny Toes and paper toiletry products.

If you would like to support any of these item collections, please contact Jennifer Tartan at
