Title: 17 Items (1-22-11) sponsored by The Red Ball 2011

Last week was fun in Killington with more than 40 people jumping the bus with us on PhillyTrips.  Conditions were very good.  We have two more ski trips coming up: Lake Tahoe (2/10 -2/15) and Big Sky Montana (3/24 - 3/29) if you can make it.  We have more than 40 people signed up for Tahoe.  If anyone is around this week for some midweek skiing in NY or Vermont, please let me know as I am hoping to possibly head up on Monday or track the storm that is coming through later in the week.

I am trying to help out someone....anyone know any openings for paral positions?

And I am trying to help out myself....anyone have any extra Wing Bowl tickets?

As always, I ask that if are thinking of buying or selling a home in the Philly region, please consult with me as I have six years of Real Estate experience as a Realtor, developer, and landlord.  If anyone has any friends or family attending Temple U, please pass along my information as rental season is starting up again.  My website is www.TempleAreaRentals.com - Mark
