In 30 years, I've seen many life changing disabling head injuries. Each of the clients thought that he or she was bullet proof the day the injury occured and the day that nightmares began of personality changes, headaches, early alzheimers, multisystem dysfunction, etc. It's not a pretty sight to see a tough guy having spit wiped from the corners of his mouth because he can't do so. It used to be that you didn't have to wear a seatbelt. Now it's the law. That is because seatbelts save lives. It's documented and proven. Same with helmets. That the recent ski area deaths didn't involve a helmet or head injury means nothing to the next out of control skier who hits a tree or gets creamed by somebody else on the slopes. My only point that it is much more effective to change behavior by leadership practicing what they preach rather than saying: "do as I say, not as I do."
These guys that put on the wine festival appear to be total carpetbaggers. They're getting 90 bucks for consumers to drink $15 wine. For these prices the quailty should be much better and the local restauraners should be getting a bigger bang for their buck. Steamboat folks could and should do a much better job producing this event locally. What can you say about a wine festival where the margaritas are better than any of the wines poured?
