The second annual Bust of Steamboat fund-raiser earned more than $20,000 to pay for mammograms, biopsies and other costs associated with breast cancer in Routt and Moffat counties. Last year, Bust of Steamboat raised $15,000. The highest bid of the night was $1,265 for a body cast designed by Rachel Small.

Ride Snowboards and ArtLink are looking for artists to enter the second annual "Snowboard Art 2: A Graphics Competition" scheduled for exhibition in February.
The grand-prize design will be printed on five limited edition Ride snowboards. The grand prize winner will receive a $1,000 cash prize and one of the limited-edition Ride snowboards decorated with the design. The remaining four boards will be used for fund-raising purposes for the Surfrider Foundation's Snowrider Project, a national outreach program that seeks to educate snow-sport enthusiasts and Alpine communities on the interrelationship between the mountain and coastal environments and promote watershed stewardship.
The competition is open to all artists working in any two-dimensional medium designed to fit the official snowboard template. The Intent to Enter deadline is Dec. 17. Details are available at
www.artlinksteamboat.org, www.ridesnowboards.com and www.artdeadline.com. Entries from the first design competition can be viewed online at www.artlinksteamboat.org.
