STEMBOATwannabe 9 years ago on Rob Douglas: In search of the mythical tourist

You made some very good points.

There are ways to work around some of the complaints.

In some of the other threads it has been said that due to economic stress in our country, maybe everyone should re-think their positions regarding TC. This might be very prudent. This summer could be very stressfull for many but the influx of added revenue from TC will help bridge the gap til the next ski season.

" This whole negotiation with the triple crown is laughable. They want us to fund all of their needs, what about them putting some money into the ballfields and such. "

They need to add security and off sit parking as well as offer shuttles to the fieds where THIER teams are playing.

TC uses Steamboat facilities. They are the host of the tournament. They don't own the fields. They should staff the clean up and security as well as foot the bill for shuttles to games played on fields in residential neighborhoods.

If they can ask for assurances - can't city concil also ask TC to provide some things as well?


STEMBOATwannabe 9 years, 1 month ago on Peter Van De Carr: To the City Council

If traffic is the problem for use of Emerald, then TC should foot the bill to have security monitoring access to the street, off site shuttles to get people to the games, Clean up crews to make sure the fields are free of trash at the end of the day, etc...

If TC has the capabilites to increase the amount of teams that come into Steamboat, then they might have to spend some money to make the tournament run more smoothly. It is TC's tournament. They are the host. They use the facilities in the Steamboat area. You can't run a tournament of this size without a staff. TC may need to add some members to it's staff to guide their participants in the usage of facilities in Steamboat.

Require security at the end of the street to inform non-residents that they need to park in an off site lot and take a shuttle bus to Emerald Park. TC would have to make it known that players would have to arrive early at the off site lot in order to take the shuttle to the field. It is just being prepared ahead of time and then this should not be such an issue. It is just 12 days! Get over it.


STEMBOATwannabe 9 years, 1 month ago on Joanne Palmer: Stop the whining

Whinning can be done in many ways. Working for a change to what makes you whine can also be done in many ways. This forum is a way to collect ideas from many people who, while they may sound like whiners, are extrememly passionate about living in Steamboat. This passion can sometimes be mis-interpreted as whining. I enjoy reading different points of view. I don't always agree with them, but I understand that it is a person's right to voice your views. If those in Steamboat who are in a position to make a change could read this forum from time to time, they would be able to understand that living in Steamboat is an honor as well as a resposibility. For every view point there is a passionate person who has an altered view. Who is right? Wrong? No one. Everyone. This is what makes living here so great.

Oh - you are not the only one with scary thighs!


STEMBOATwannabe 9 years, 1 month ago on Allison Miriani: We're a dog town

I don't have a dog I actually like dogs... Just never got another one after mine passed away.

I don't mind friendly dogs. I hate stepping on dog poop I hate finding it in my lawn, on the sidewalk or near the trail.

It is just one of those things you don't want to go back to once you are passed that stage of life. Much like babies and toilet training. When it's done you are grateful.

I agree with ALMOST. Many people come here in the summer - but return for the winter.


STEMBOATwannabe 9 years, 1 month ago on Intrawest unveils new season pass prices

Why doesn't everyone buy one of the Rocky Mountain passes that are offed at Winter Park and then add the Steamboat upgrade??? That sounds like the ticket to buy.....

There is one that you get every Friday afternoon included at Steamboat. That doesn't sound so bad....

Of course no one wants to pay more for a ticket. But at least the lines are not as crowded as the I-70 locations.

It's been a great winter of skiing THANKS to the snow gods!
