Issue #184

Hope you all had a great and chocolatey weekend! The newsletter might look a tad different today, as we are using some newer (faster and cheaper) technology. If there are any major malfunctions in the look, reply to this email and let me know.

We will have the name of the winner of the $30 Patagonia gift card for October referrals tomorrow. A new giveaway for November starts today and we have increased the gift card to $50.

PS: We skied this weekend at Lake Louise... now we can say we skied in October... boom!

Ah ha...caught in a web of lies and, possibly, some Kickstarter fraud to the tune of $17,000! I think the whole family is in on it. If I had time, I would hack into the Salt Lake bank and check this out. Anything for my TDT readers, but alas, no time, must write. (2 min read)

This is crazy: The Almanac has been making snow forecasts for 228 years and has a record of 80 percent accuracy. More importantly, they are saying that the 2020-2021 winter will be a good one, with above-normal snowfall in the Rockies... that's all I need to know. (3 min read)

Starting on the first day of each month a fresh referral giveaway will start. On the last day of the month, we will announce the winner of that month's giveaway. You just need 1 referral to be entered. Giveaway winners are selected at random. However, to make things more interesting, the giveaways are weighted: participants get one ticket for every person they refer.  The Spark Loops algorithm does all the heavy lifting and picks the winner.

November's giveaway is a $50 USD gift e-card from Patagonia.

Just copy and paste the following into an email and send to your friends and family:
