Winter waterton canyon fest?

Hey everyone,
Well Winter is right around the corner and for a lot of us that means time to get on the mountain slopes. But this also got me to thinking with all of the festivals that we have during the summer why not have one during the winter. That's one nice thing about living in Denver is we always have a river to go to during the winter time. There's nothing like a nice warm winter day paddling in the canyon.
With that being said I wanted to get everyone's opinion on how they would feel about trying to get a Waterton Canyon Festival going on. This would be a great way for everyone to get to hang out and see each other during those winter months where you are typically on the mountain flying down to fast to say a word. I can't remember one year in the last decade that Waterton has not ran during the winter so in terms of reliability it's there.
This also is a great way for a lot more people to have access to this Festival compared to some of the bigger ones that require you to be a class 5 boater to attend. Hope to hear some good feedback from everyone, and remember to keep those boats out of storage!

I'd probably be willing to show as long as the snow is bad or if I'm not skate skiing. Put me down as a solid maybe.

Since I'm now officially a Front Ranger (gasp), at least for another year 8 months and 20 days (but who is counting), I'm keen.

Winter boating is good fun. Do it! I'd probably show.
