Movie comes back this week

So many people asked Mountain Movie owner Mark Green for another look at the movie, "What the (bleep) do we know?" featured in his FallFest lineup, that he decided to bring it back for another week. The film will show nightly at 7 p.m., today through Thursday. Weekend matinees will be held at 2 and 4:30 p.m. Tickets are $7 or $5 for matinees at Mountain Movie in Ski Time Square. Call 879-7299.

Snowboard competition

A prospectus is available for participants in the third annual "Snowboard Art III" competition, sponsored by Ride Snowboard and ArtLink.

The deadline for entries is Jan. 15. New this year, artists may submit a maximum of two designs, and they must be digital.

Last year's Best of Show winner, Adam Reitz, not only pocketed $1,000, but he also had his artwork printed on a limited-edition run of five Custom Ride snowboards

The first of the limited edition snowboards was given to Reitz. The others will be auctioned off to raise funds for The Surfrider Foundation's "Snowrider Project" and ArtLink.

This year's grand prize winner will receive $1,000 cash and a one-of-a-kind Ride snowboard featuring the winning artwork. The first runner-up will receive $750 and a pair of Ride bindings. The second runner-up will receive $500 and Ride boots, and third runner-up will receive $250 and a Ride jacket and pant combination.

The top 50 entries will be printed and exhibited locally at Centennial Hall from Feb. 14 to March 18.
